Las Ventanas al Paraiso, A Rosewood Resort, remains on a roll with the launch of its new summer 2016 collection of Los Cabos “Once-In-A-Lifetime” adventures. The interactive “Sense of Place” experiences encompass surfing, indigenous massage therapies, sommelier challenges and workshops with local artisans.
“Our summer collection exemplifies so much of what we love about Baja — the art, the romance, the waves, the wine — and we can’t wait for our guests to experience everything that makes our region so magical,” said Frederic Vidal, the resort’s managing director.
Vidal added, “Whether it be cultural activities that capture local traditions such as designing an authentic Tenango linen or outdoor excursions that showcase the beautiful natural coastline and desert of Los Cabos, we aim to create lasting impressions and unforgettable memories.”
Since opening in 1997, Las Ventanas al Paraiso has garnered accolades and recognition as one of the world’s most luxurious resorts. Overlooking the Sea of Cortez near San Jose del Cabo, the property features 83 luxury suites and villas designed with respect for the Baja’s desert-to-ocean terrain and ecology.
“From the moment guests arrive, they are treated to the resort’s extravagant accommodations, over-the-top amenities and devoted staff transforming vacations into life-changing experiences,” Vidal said. The 2016 summer collection further fuels that extreme.
“With every Once-In-A-Lifetime experience at Las Ventanas al Paraiso, we provide our guests with unique, new ways to discover the richness of the surrounding Baja region,” said Vidal. “Guided by Rosewood Hotels & Resorts’ signature ‘A Sense of Place’ philosophy, every collection includes ultra-luxurious and personalized experiences for our guests.”
Surf in Paradise
Since Los Cabos is lauded for is remarkable surf, it’s only natural that Las Ventanas al Paraiso would create a new excursion ideal for guests seeking a more active and adventurous way to witness Mexico’s striking beaches.
Your clients will begin the morning exploring East Cape via a 4x4 Jeep trek up the region’s pristine white sand coast that fringes dazzling Sea of Cortez waters. With the guidance of an expert instructor, surfers-in-training catch waves at Nine Palms, Shipwrecks and La Fortuna — considered among the region’s top breaks. The journey rolls out with a morning lesson followed by a picnic lunch amid palms and desert landscape.
Create Your Own Tenango Linen
In central-eastern Mexico, Tenango de Doria is a town renowned for its beautiful hand-woven embroidery. Inspired by the pre-Hispanic indigenous Otomi culture, this craft is practiced by some 1,000 residents dwelling in the community. Las Ventanas al Paraiso will bring this exquisite Mexican art to the resort so that guests have the opportunity to design their own Tenangos.
A skilled Tenango artisan will be on hand to reveal the art form’s cultural significance, history and technique, and then assist in selecting patterns and colors for creating napkins, tablecloths or other linens to take home as authentic treasures.
60 Fingers Massage
Massage therapists merge energy to indulge couples with what may be considered the ultimate couples massage. Performed in the privacy of each couple’s rooftop terrace, this stimulating experience is enhanced by tropical breezes and an amber sunset. To elevate the intimate mood, musicians play soft tunes from outside the terrace throughout the hour-long nirvana.
Challenge the Sommelier
Wine aficionados will love this interactive competition with Las Ventanas’ celebrated Wine Director Genevieve Rioux and Chef Fabrice Guisett. After reviewing the evening’s menu, participants team with the Sommelier to select appropriate three-course pairings. After blind tasting each selected vino at dinner, the individual who selects the winning pairings for the most number of courses will be crowned champion.
All competitors become members of the Las Ventanas al Paraiso Wine Connoisseur Club and will be presented with their own personalized wine tasting glass each time they return to the resort’s La Cava.
The Agent’s Edge
With an unparalleled level of service, innovative amenities and romantic ambience, Las Ventanas al Paraiso features 83 luxurious suites and villas — including 12 Signature Beach Villas. Debuting in 2014, the resort’s dozen Signature Villas have created a new standard in luxe accommodations and off-the-charts service courtesy of villa hosts trained to provide ultra-exclusive and personalized vacation experiences.
With a bevy of holistic treatments inspired by its Baja surroundings, The Spa at Las Ventanas is regaled for its exquisite indoor-outdoor private terraces, treatment rooms, solarium, couples suites and full-service salon. Three distinctive dining venues include Tequila & Ceviche Bar, The Restaurant with its authentic Mexican fare and The Sea Grill.
