Chileno Bay Resort & Residences welcomed its first homeowners to the brand new beachfront property in December 2016, following a brisk year of sales with just a limited inventory of premiere residences remaining. Before opening day, 90 percent of phase one villas were sold or under contract, which has helped fast track phase two of development, set to begin ahead of schedule with a groundbreaking this spring.
Chileno Bay Resorts & Residences features a boutique luxury resort, managed by Auberge Resorts, that will open on February 1, 2017 with 29 guest rooms ranging from 760 to 885 square feet of interior and exterior space. Additionally, 33 expansive three- and four-bedroom contemporary beach villas range from 2,750 to 3,100 square feet of indoor living space. Various units offer outdoor showers, expansive terraces, and soaking tubs.
Phase two will introduce an additional 28 villas and 12 hotel rooms and suites, four of which are 1,000-square-foot one-bedroom suites. The new residences will allow buyers smaller options, with two-bedroom units starting from $1,495,000. Penthouses will start at $3,000,00. Phase two is slated to be complete in fall 2018.
“Following a very successful year of sales that significantly exceeded our expectations, we are thrilled to accelerate the plans and break ground on phase two in just a few months,” said Mark Cooley, Partner, SV Capital Partners, developers of the resort. “Since opening last month, we have been getting great feedback on the contemporary designed homes and families are enjoying Chileno Bay’s modern lifestyle and amenities – not to mention the beautiful, calm waters and sandy beach right at their doorstep.”
Following the December opening of the residences, Chileno Bay hosted a grand opening soiree on January 19th that welcomed more than 250 guests, owners and partners with a night of live music and entertainment, specialty food and drink stations and a grand finale firework show. Many visitors stayed through the weekend to enjoy the resort’s facilities, including paddleboarding and snorkeling over the pristine reefs and indulging in bites and bevs from signature restaurant Comal and the beachside eatery, TnT, serving up tacos and tequila.
Chileno Bay Resorts & Residences is a sprawling 22-acres above the only year-round swimmable coveted beach in Los Cabos. Part of the prestigious 1,200-acre resort community of Chileno Bay, a Discovery Land Company development, the resort is comprised of a private beach club, Tom Fazio-designed 18-hole golf course, residences and more. The prime perch is the former home of historic Hotel Cabo San Lucas, the area’s first luxury hotel frequented by Old Hollywood stars like John Wayne and Bing Crosby.
Contemporary accommodations feature an open concept with floor-to-ceiling windows and doors that open to ample private terraces. Ground-floor villas all have private pools, while some upper-level villas have Jacuzzis on the spacious, open-air balconies. All residential villas are equipped with indoor-outdoor gourmet kitchens featuring Wolf and Subzero appliances, and lush garden, pool or exquisite ocean views. Two four-bedroom Sky Villas offer large private rooftop terraces with a private pool, extended living area and bar. One six-bedroom villa offers over 11,000 square feet of indoor-outdoor space, including 6.5 bathrooms, a swimming pool, outdoor shower with views of the Sea of Cortez, as well as a private entrance and full-time dedicated staff. The exclusive turn-key villas appeal to the sophisticated traveler who appreciates a casual and active lifestyle, connecting with family and friends and an authentic, modern yet warm environment. Hassle-free ownership allows residents to enjoy the amenities and services of the resort on a daily basis.
Amenities at Chileno Bay Resort & Residences include three culinary concepts: the resort’s signature restaurant, Comal, a breezy space overlooking the water and offering local, freshly caught seafood, and a raw and ceviche bar. Here, guests enjoy sunset cocktails and panoramic ocean views from hanging chairs overlooking the beach or by fire pits at the water’s edge. A beachside taco bar, TnT, offers specialty tequilas in an interactive casual setting at the edge of the beach, while a poolside grill serves lighter fare for lunch.
A signature full-service spa includes 10 treatment rooms, a couple’s retreat room, a purification garden, a cool plunge pool, reflexology pool, and a rare Himalayan salt cave sauna. An expansive Specialty Suite is ideal for couples or an extended private treatment, and features an outdoor garden with its own plunge pool and steam shower. All treatment rooms have private outdoor shower gardens. Fitness offerings include individual workouts, group classes and fresh-air fitness with an emphasis on metabolic conditioning, high-intensity interval training and enhanced sports performance.
A waterfront “H20 cave” adjacent to Chileno Beach hosts 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, open to guests throughout the day as a place to retreat and relax. An artisanal market offers grab-and-go gourmet products along with opportunities for hands-on culinary experiences such as chocolate tastings or cooking classes. Guests also have access to championship golf and recreational activities nearby to round-out the local adventures.
Chileno Bay Resort & Residences provides 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 1,000 square-feet of private dining and meeting spaces with an adjacent 1,500 square-foot terrace and floor to ceiling windows overlooking the Sea of Cortez.
