The resort located on Mexico's Baja California Peninsula is the second property under the umbrella of Palace Resorts, a hospitality company with over 30 years of experience in the luxury all-inclusive market.

“Palace Resorts continues to reinforce itself as the leader among the luxury, all-inclusive market. We are so excited to continue to grow our most coveted brand, Le Blanc Spa Resort. It only made perfect sense, to do so in a destination such as Los Cabos, a magical place, known for its world-renown luxurious offerings, untouched beauty, impressive landscapes and unparalleled picturesque views. Le Blanc Spa Resort, Los Cabos, was designed with even the most discerning luxury traveler in mind. No detail was spared in its design and we are confident in the quality, service and offerings, behind the brand.” said Gibran Chapur, Executive Vice President of Palace Resorts, “The Le Blanc Spa Resort brand is already recognized around the world as the top luxury hotel in Cancun, and we know we will bring the same exceptional caliber of service to our second property in Los Cabos.”
Exteriors designed by master architect, Roberto Elias and interiorly brought to life by Francois Frossard of Francois Frossard Design (FFD), Le Blanc Spa Resort is a designer’s dream. With an impressive grandesque entrance, seven stories high, Le Blanc Spa Resort is an elegant, yet chic designed hotel, rivaling some of the most modern hotels in the world.
The luxurious resort will be comprised of four buildings that curve toward the ocean and permeate the flair of the local area’s rich soils. The suites, restaurants and bars feature ocean views, larger terraces and greater use of open outdoor spaces. The unique flora and fauna of Los Cabos, the climate, the landscapes, and surrounding mountains, played a big influence in the architect’s design of the resort. He wanted to ensure the property was in line with the original brand born in Cancun with its smooth lines, redefined corners, and elegance without complications.
“Our goal was to have the ocean take center stage from the moment you walk in. Just past the main entrance, you’ll stumble upon my personal favorite part of the resort- the terrace. The area will serve as the rooftop for the second building. Not only will this be the central hub or the connector to other areas of the property, and will offer the best panoramic views in the house! This is a perfect spot to enjoy a cold drink while indulging in deep blue views of the Sea of Cortez,” said Roberto Elias, Architect of Elias Estudio.
The interiors rival the most exquisite hotels around the world. Francois Frossard once again, brought his vision to life, with Le Blanc Spa Resort, Los Cabos. With a chic and modern feel, the design comes to life with an inherent style. "I designed the interiors of Le Blanc Spa Resort in Los Cabos, to bring the spectacular outdoor setting, into the property's luxurious interiors. The stunning Sea of Cortez and hills that surround Los Cabos, provide the ultimate palate for fresh and breathtaking décor, while at the same time, keeping in line with the luxurious luxury lifestyle in the destination. I’ve added some incredible elements and surprises, including a Private Villa on the property with incredible panoramic views of the sea. Offering the same quality of service and breathtaking design that has earned Le Blanc Spa Resort in Cancun top reviews, I am confident Le Blanc Spa Resort Los Cabos will also provide an unparalleled level of hospitality and I’m excited to be a part of it” said Frossard.
