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.  

SO/ Hotels & Resorts is one of the fastest growing lifestyle brands in Accor’s luxury portfolio, according to the company. In addition to the upcoming openings of SO/ Havana Paseo del Prado in Havana, Cuba (2020) and SO/ Los Cabos Hotel & Residences (2021) in the North and Central American region, the brand will soon open properties in Kuala Lumpur (2020), Samui (2020) and Jakarta (2021.) These additions will expand a SO/ portfolio that already includes two properties in Thailand, SO/ Bangkok and SO/ Hua Hin, SO/ Mauritius, SO/ Singapore, SO/ Berlin Das Stue, SO/ Vienna and SO/ St. Petersburg.
