Accor is expanding its luxury portfolio into Mexico. Slated to open at the end of 2021, SO/ Los Cabos Hotel & Residences will be a new beachfront hotel and residential development on the Baja California Peninsula on the Pacific Coast. The property will be Accor’s first SO/ property in Mexico, and the second in the region.

As with other hotels in the brand, Accor will be selecting a fashion designer to “lend their artistic vision to the property.” The hotel is expected to have an “impressive” rooftop experience, including two restaurants that will serve innovative Mexican fare; a lounge with ocean views, surrounded by five swimming pools; and outdoor event spaces with floor-to-ceiling glass windows. 

The hotel will also have 7,500-square-feet of flexible indoor/outdoor function space, a spa, access to an 18-hole Nicklaus Design golf course adjacent to the property and a fitness center that includes a glass-bottom pool.
