Patricia Rios, Leonardo Díaz Borioli and Alejandra Contreras transformed the property.

ME Cabo in Mexico reopened following a $16-million renovation that saw changes made to all of the hotel’s guestrooms, suites and public spaces. Architects Patricia Rios and Leonardo Díaz Borioli worked with interior designer Alejandra Contreras to transform the property.

The resort now has 162 guestrooms, including 62 ME+ suites that have design elements influenced by Mexican culture. The rooms have custom-designed furniture and décor pieces handcrafted by Mexican masons, carpenters and craftsmen, and new custom-designed wallpaper. The color palette includes grey and white. ME+ suites have floor-to-ceiling windows and ocean views. Suite ME, the resort’s equivalent to the Presidential Suite, has a miniature production booth for DJs and guests to host private parties.

The Lobby and Rose Bar were decorated with brightly colored fabrics.
