In an extraordinary location at the southernmost tip of Mexico's Baja California Peninsula, where the Pacific Ocean meets the Sea of Cortez at the legendary Finisterre (Land's End), a resort of unprecedented luxury will make its debut this Fall. Called Capella Pedregal
, the resort is the latest from the Diaz Rivera family, one of Mexico's foremost developers. Encompassing 24 oceanfront acres at the foot of the dramatic mountainscape, the 66-room Capella Resort and Spa will be the flagship beach resort for the new Capella brand of luxury hotels we've been raving about
. (This new, elite concept in resort accommodations was launched by Horst Schulze
, the "celebrated founder of the modern-day incarnation of the Ritz-Carlton Hotel Company.") Capella Pedregal will be complemented by 31 shared-ownership Capella Residences and 20 private, full-ownership Capella Casonas-- in close proximity to the Cabo Marina. The entrance to this exclusive gated community is dramatic: via the only privately-owned tunnel in Mexico, carved through the mountains and separating the town of Cabo from the Pacific. Buzz: At the world-class spa, the menu of treatments was designed by the acclaimed Sylvia Sepielli, who draws upon indigenous cultures for therapies, treatments, and rituals.
