Four Seasons Resort and Residences Los Cabos at Costa Palmas has opened the doors on its ultra-luxury Private Retreats collection located within the exclusive resort community of Costa Palmas on the East Cape of Los Cabos. We stepped inside to take a look and admire the view…
Four Seasons Private Retreats offers more than 750 of the world’s finest luxury vacation homes. The Los Cabos Private Retreats collection offers two to six-bedroom contemporary residences that seamlessly integrate indoor-outdoor living with flowing spaces, elemental design and native landscaping. The collection offers a wide array of accommodations for up to 18 guests, each with private pools and expansive entertainment space.
The project is located within Costa Palmas, a luxury beachfront resort community located on the East Cape of the Baja Peninsula. Thoughtfully and sensitively designed and situated along a two-and-a-half mile stretch of swimmable beach, Costa Palmas introduces an elemental form of luxury hospitality set among organic farms on an international marina – Baja’s first and only port of call for superyachts. Designed to take advantage of its picturesque location, Costa Palmas Residences are designed and managed by lifelong hoteliers with a focus on design forward properties with a high level of personalised service to each guest and owner living alongside an energetic destination to set sail on adventures unique to the East Cape and Sea of Cortez.
A distinct departure from the busy marina of Cabo San Lucas, guests of Four Seasons have direct access to world-class sailing, fishing and cruising yachts up to 76 metres from the convenience of the resort’s ‘backyard’. The property offers a fleet of boats ranging from an eight metre centre console to a 20-metre luxury cruising yacht. From direct access to Cabo Pulmo, considered to be one of the best diving and snorkelling sites in the world, to nightly sunset cruises and guided sport and spearfishing adventures, Four Seasons is the only luxury resort in the market with seamless, private marina access.
“The East Cape of Baja sets the stage for luxury living at its finest – and then some,” said Borja Manchado, General Manager, Four Seasons Resort and Residences Los Cabos at Costa Palmas. “Our residences provide guests with the best of both worlds, the privacy of renting a home along with the services and amenities that Four Seasons is known for. Not only do the residences in our Private Retreats collection offer extraordinary architecture, design and service, they offer what is perhaps the greatest luxury of all – unprecedented exclusivity and premier access to the wonders of Mexico.”
The Oceanfront Six-Bedroom Villa is a six-bedroom, six full bathroom unit from Guerin Glass Architects includes one powder room in addition to one staff bedroom and bathroom with a configuration of five king beds and two queen beds. The villa boasts the very best of beachfront living with a chef’s kitchen, thoughtful design elements, and a heated pool and whirlpool, in addition to full access to Four Seasons and Costa Palmas amenities. The architecture plays with rigid and organic forms to build a dramatic entry sequence with 180 degree views of the coastline, nearby estuary and mountain landscape. The gallery entryway leads to an airy and light-filled living space, the home’s central common area. An architectural focal point, a floor-to-ceiling curved glass wall, anchors the residence.
Additional properties range from five to two bedroom units and include the Oasis Five-Bedroom Villa and the Prime Ocean View Four-Bedroom Residence. The five-bedroom, six-full-bathroom units feature multi-level luxury living with a private infinity pool surrounded by Costa Palmas Golf Club and a natural estuary. This residence is located in a private neighbourhood within the Resort, still only a short golf cart ride to Four Seasons and the beach. The Prime Ocean View Four-Bedroom Residence is a four bedroom, five full bathroom unit offering floor-to-ceiling windows, open to ocean breezes and unparalleled ocean and sunrise views. Just steps from the dock, this private retreat is perfect for a private yacht experience.
