Auberge Resorts Collection has debuted the Chileno Bay Resort & Residences in Los Cabos, Mexico. Glazier Le Architects of Burlingame, Calif., designed the property, while San Francisco-based BAMO created most of the resort’s interiors, including its 60 guestrooms and 32 villas. Californian master planner Girvin Associates envisioned the surrounding bay landscape.
The resort’s arrival area has an open-air passageway that leads to views of the beach and bay. Interiors play up what project participants describe as a “beach-side chic” vibe with clean lines, natural wood and hand-cut, locally sourced stone accented by traditional Mexican design elements. A 450-foot-long, three-tiered infinity pool anchors the five-star resort.
Accommodations have floor-to-ceiling windows that frame views of the Sea of Cortez. A natural color palette serves as a backdrop for handcrafted furniture upholstered in linen, cotton and leather. Guestrooms have private terraces with ocean, beach, pool or garden views; light-filled bathrooms with freestanding soaking bathtubs; and private outdoor showers. Villas have with kitchens and indoor-outdoor living spaces, as well as terraces with plunge pools and hot tubs.
The resort's restaurant, Comal, is a three-tiered, open-air venue designed by Gulla Jonsdottir Architecture + Design and helmed by chef Yvan Mucharraz. Other F&B offerings also include beachfront tacos and tequila bar TnT.
The Auberge Spa at Chileno Bay is home to 10 indoor and outdoor treatment facilities, a purification garden, a reflexology pool, a salt inhalation room, an ice fountain, a hair and nail salon, and a men's grooming den.
The property also has an H20 Watersports activity venue; activity center with a kids’ club, two movie theaters, a games lawn and a fitness center; and more than 13,000 square feet of indoor-outdoor event space, including the Limonero Event Lawn.
The new Auberge resort is part of Discovery Land Co.’s 1,200-acre Chileno Bay community, which includes residences, a private beach club and a Tom Fazio-designed 18-hole golf course. Auberge also plans to open a beach residence/spa property in Fort Lauderdale later this year.
