Auberge Resorts Collection, owner and operator of boutique luxury hotels, resorts, residences and private clubs, is managing the Chileno Bay Resorts & Residences, Los Cabos, a new luxury resort in Los Cabos, Mexico. Set to open December 2016, Chileno Bay Resort & Residences was formerly known as VieVage Los Cabos and is set amidst the 1,200-acre resort community of Chileno Bay, a Discovery Land Company development, comprised of a private beach club, Tom Fazio-designed 18-hole golf course, residences and more.
The resort will have a signature restaurant, destination spa and Auberge’s exceptional service. A centerpiece, three-tiered zero-edge pool that spans 138 meters (150 yards) will serve as the centerpiece of the resort.
“The natural beauty of Chileno Bay from its days as a sleepy fishing village is still just unparalleled,” said Mark Harmon, founder and managing partner, Auberge Resorts Collection. “Chileno Bay Resort & Residences, with its close proximity to and allure of the ocean—in addition to the magnificent cascading pool at the heart of the resort that takes guests into the sandy shores of Chileno Bay— is poised to be an unforgettable Cabo retreat.”
The San Francisco design team of Glazier Le Architects and interior designers BAMO embraced the natural environment and a contemporary indoor-outdoor aesthetic, infusing a color palette of earth, plant and sea tones with sea-colored tiles, custom fabrics, natural materials and original artwork to create a desert-meets-ocean environment.
Chileno Bay Resort & Residences will comprise 60 guestrooms ranging from 760 to 885 square feet of interior and exterior space, and 32 two-, three- and four-bedroom villas ranging from 3,300 to 4,500 square feet—including outdoor showers, terraces, indoor showers and soaking tubs, along with hand-crafted furniture and accessories created by local artisans. Interior design finishes include marble flooring, artisan plaster walls, and hand-made tiles.
Accommodations will include an open concept with floor-to-ceiling windows and doors that open to ample private terraces. Ground-floor villas will all have private pools, while the upper-level villas will have Jacuzzis. All residential villas will be equipped with indoor-outdoor gourmet kitchens featuring Wolf and Subzero appliances, outdoor showers and garden, pool or ocean views. Two three-bedroom Sky Villas will have large private rooftop terraces with private pools, an extended living area and bar. One six-bedroom villa will offer over 11,000 square feet of indoor-outdoor space, including 6.5 bathrooms, a private swimming pool, outdoor shower and views of the Sea of Cortez.
Amenities at Chileno Bay Resort & Residences will include three culinary concepts including the resort’s signature restaurant, an open-air space designed by Los Angeles-based Gulla Jonsdottir Architecture + Design, offering local, freshly caught seafood, a raw bar and interactive ceviche bar.
A full-service spa will include 10 treatment rooms, a couples retreat room, a purification garden, a plunge pool, sauna and reflexology pool. A specialty suite will be designed for couples or an extended private treatment, and includes an outdoor garden with its own plunge pool, private bathroom and steam shower. All treatment rooms will have private outdoor shower gardens.
A waterfront “H20 cave” adjacent to Chileno Beach will host a myriad of local watersport activities from snorkeling and diving to standup paddle boarding and more. The Activity Center at the center of the resort houses the fitness center, movement studio, the “Pescaditos” Kids Club, private theater, and the Chileno Lounge, which will be open to guests throughout the day as a place to retreat and relax, read a book, watch a sporting event, or mingle with other guests. An artisanal market will provide guests grab-and-go gourmet products along with opportunities for hands-on culinary experiences such as chocolate tastings or cooking classes. Guests will also have access to championship golf and recreational activities nearby.
Chileno Bay Resort & Residences will also have over 12,000 square feet of meetings and special events space, including a 7,800-square-foot Citrus and Herb Event Garden perfect for intimate weddings and private celebrations. For gatherings with one-of-a-kind views, Chileno Galleria offers a 1,000-square-foot air conditioned private dining and meeting space with an adjacent 1,500-square-foot terrace and floor to ceiling windows overlooking the Sea of Cortez.
Chileno Bay Resort & Residences will join Aubege Resorts Collection’s first entry in the destination, Esperanza, An Auberge Resort.
