How its location inspired the second Le Blanc spa resort in Los Cabos, Mexico

Palace Resorts has opened its second Le Blanc spa resort in Los Cabos, Mexico, designed by architect Roberto Elias of Elias Estudio, with interiors by Francois Frossard of Francois Frossard Design.

The 373-guestroom Le Blanc Los Cabos, which has four buildings that curve toward the ocean, was inspired by the flora and fauna of Los Cabos, as well as the climate, landscape and surrounding mountains.

According to Roberto Elias, in designing the property, the goal was to have the ocean take center stage. Past the main entrance, there is a terrace that also serves as the rooftop of the second building. The space has panoramic views of the surrounding areas. Overall, the interiors were designed to bring the outdoor setting inside.

Meanwhile, according to Francois Frossard, the Sea of Cortez and hills that surround Los Cabos inspired the décor. There are also surprising elements, including a private villa on property with panoramic views of the sea.

The resort also has a 29,000-square-foot spa created in partnership with Diane Mestre of Mestre & Mestre consultants. The spa has 25 treatment rooms, hydrotherapy area with hot and cold plunge pools, European sauna, herbal steam room, sauna, thermal loungers, showers, whirlpool, chromotherapy and ice room, and a relaxation lounge.

The property also has a fitness center with TRX training, spinning, aqua spinning, yoga, Pilates and a meditation area.
