    ME by Meliá has unveiled the all-new ME Cabo, five years after completing its previous restoration project. After undergoing a $10 million transformation, the lifestyle resort has reopened its doors with a completely reimagined look that touches nearly every aspect of the resort; from guestrooms and public spaces to food and beverage outlets and an entirely new rooftop bar and lounge, in partnership with Rosa Negra. 

    Located on Los Cabos’ only swimmable beach, and overlooking the celebrated ‘El Arco’, ME Cabo embodies sophisticated design with a creative flair and hint of local culture. Designed by Alvaro Sans, the hotel’s new look is bold and contemporary, with special touches around every corner. Beginning with ME Cabo’s signature open-air arrival experience, guests are welcomed back with warm, earthy, natural hues and touches of turquoise and ivory that complement the stunning Pacific Ocean that lies just ahead. Welcoming yet sophisticated, the arrival captures the classic charm of Mexico while embodying the brand’s European signature style. 

    ME Cabo has partnered with popular Mexican restaurant group Grupo Rosa Nega to debut four new culinary hotspots: Confessions Skybar & Tapas, Taboo Beach Club & Restaurant, Funky Geisha, and Mamazzita Mexican Soul. The new culinary concepts are dedicated to serving locally-sourced produce and ingredients that explore Latin American cuisine. 

    Dazzling with some of the best views the destination has to offer, Confessions Skybar & Tapas is the newly built rooftop bar andlounge featuring a tapas-style menu, creative mixology and nightly entertainment. ME Cabo’s signature restaurant, Mamazzita, open for breakfast, lunch and dinner, is an open-air restaurant that takes inspiration from the flavours and colours of Mexican culture, with the finest ingredients and culinary techniques.

    Additional dining outlets include Funky Geisha, a reinvented lobby lounge open for lunch and dinner, that serves up Thai, Chinese and Japanese inspired cuisine in a casual setting. Guests relaxing poolside can also enjoy Taboo Beach Club, where the design of deep sea blues and natural stone walls, coupled with reimagined cuisine, transports guests to the Mediterranean.

    All 170 guestrooms have been cued to embrace traditional Mexican design, boasting an eclectic feel, mixing rustic wood furnishings with bright, vivid colours. Rooms range from 425 to 914 square-metres and feature a private, furnished balcony or terrace with garden or ocean views, rainfall showers, fully stocked Maxibar, integrated room technologies and bath amenities by C.O. Bigelow.  

    ME Cabo also reopens with a new spa and wellbeing experience. The KORPO Wellness Experience combines inner and outer-wellness through a harmonious blend of beauty treatments, relaxation techniques, and state-of-the-art fitness facility. Innovative treatments and techniques by Sothys include the ‘CBD Detox Massage’ featuring CBD oil designed to improve lymphatic and blood circulation, and relieve tension and pain. The “Facial HIIT Tri-Complex” combines the trifecta of saffron, sophora and peptides in a scientifically proven anti-ageing treatment, safe for all ages.

    Meliá Hotels International is one of the largest hotel companies worldwide, as well as the absolute leader within the Spanish market, with more than 380 hotels (current portfolio and pipeline) throughout more than 40 countries and four continents. Watch this space.
