With unobstructed views of Los Cabos’ iconic Arch and located along one of the most desirable stretches of
beach in Cabo San Lucas, The Cape, a Thompson Hotel offers a 360-degree luxury lifestyle experience
(LOS ANGELES; March 30, 2015) – Thompson Hotels announces the Summer 2015 opening of its
first luxury resort in Mexico, The Cape, located along Monuments Beach in Cabo San Lucas. The
161-room beachfront hotel seamlessly blends the brand’s signature urban luxury aesthetic with a
distinct Baja sensibility. Owned by Vertex Real Estate Investors and Pentz & Partners, and
managed by international, multi-brand lifestyle company Commune Hotels & Resorts, the hotel
team has assembled an extraordinary lineup of talent, including lauded Mexican architect Javier
Sanchez of JSa Arquitectura and celebrated design firm Arquitectura de Interiores led by
Marisabel Gómez Vázquez.
“We are thrilled to expand Thompson Hotels beyond urban locales and introduce not only our
first project in Mexico, but also a wholly distinct concept to the Los Cabos hospitality landscape,”
says Niki Leondakis, CEO of Commune Hotels & Resorts. “Our mission for The Cape has always
been to create an environment evocative of both the brand’s urban roots and the resort’s seductive
Baja setting. We are honored to work with talents like Javier Sanchez and José Noé Suro, each of
whom have helped shape and bring our vision to life.”
“Those familiar with Monuments Beach will recognize The Cape’s unparalleled location,” says
hotel General Manager Eduardo Segura. “Our secluded beachfront setting is not only a magnet
for surfing aficionados, we’re also ideally positioned to provide guests a serene setting to relax
and easy access to Los Cabos’ many seaside activities and cultural offerings—from kayaking,
diving, and whale watching to day trips to the architectural gems found in historic San José del
The Cape is highly inspired by the community and culture in which it resides, in keeping with the
Thompson Hotels ethos. Just steps outside the resort stretches the white sands of Monuments
Beach, a secluded surfing destination for experienced enthusiasts that also offers unobstructed
views of The Arch, a stunning natural phenomenon of limestone carved into an arch by centuries
of wind and sea exposure. This spectacular view of the Baja landscape can be enjoyed from any of
the guestrooms on property, all of which boast private terraces, or from the expansive rooftop
lounge and garden that sits six floors above sea level.
The Cape’s connection to the sea is woven throughout the resort’s design, spearheaded by
internationally renowned Mexican architect Javier Sanchez of JSa Arquitectura, in collaboration
with Arquitectura de Interiores. The JSa Arquitectura and Arquitectura de Interiores teams
worked closely with Thompson Hotels to integrate the brand’s signature mid-century modern
aesthetic with a vibrant 1960s Mexico-meets-Southern California feel. Highlights include custom
furniture handmade in Mexico, found both in-room and throughout the public spaces; original,
regionally produced art, curated in collaboration with celebrated ceramicist José Noé Suro; lush
native landscaping and greenery that blur the line between indoor and outdoor; two pools located
just steps from the beach, one built within a natural rock formation on property and the other an
infinity pool with swim-up bar; private stairway access to Monuments Beach; an intimate, five
treatment room spa and fitness center featuring a private outdoor cabana for al fresco treatments
with ocean views; and more. The resort will offer one-, two-, and three-bedroom guestrooms, as
well as bi-level suites with private rooftops; select rooms boast hanging outdoor daybeds and
plunge pools.
The Cape will additionally feature a selection of regionally-inspired food and beverage
destinations, including a 114-seat signature restaurant, poolside bar and grill, sunken lobby bar,
and al fresco rooftop lounge. The first and only rooftop lounge in Cabo San Lucas, this six-storyhigh space boasts two bars, an intimate terrace, and a sunken seating area with a fire pit and
communal tables offering views of downtown Cabo and The Arch.
Reservations can be made now for stays starting June 13, 2015. To reserve, guests may visit
