Meliá Cabo San Lucas relaunches

Sol Meliá and
  Mexico-based Grupo Questro are relaunching Meliá Cabo San Lucas as the
  new ME Cabo,  making it the third property within the ME by Meliá
  portfolio of hotels and the second of the new brand’s experience-based
  ‘personality hotels’  in Mexico. Having completed a multi-million dollar
  renovation   earlier   this year,  the property is already the most
  fashionable hotel in one of the most captivating destinations in Mexico.
  Under the new brand, Sol Meliá also brings its signature Yhi Spa brand to
  Cabo San Lucas. As ME Cabo, the hotel becomes part of a select group of
  seductive,  urban and resort destination hotels under the ME by Meliá
  umbrella that will combine an intimate style of warmth and Latin flair
  while delivering experiences that are an extension of the guests’
  individual life-rhythms.

  Nestled on the sands of Playa el Médano the property is situated on the
  only swimmable beach in Cabo San Lucas as it’s protected against the
  strong currents of Mar de Cortes. Within a short walking distance of
  downtown restaurants and shops, ME Cabo is set to captivate travelers who
  have a taste for stimulating art, international cuisine, and world music.
  Designed for the discerning guest , ME Cabo will fuse innovative design
  with local flavors that encourage guests to move seamlessly within the
  surroundings,  transforming them from their daily routines into an
  inspirational existence that is indulgent…energizing…and daring.

  Guests will enjoy a balanced stay, where a busy day is complemented by ME
  by Meliá‘s signature Yhi Spa - the first in Cabo San Lucas. This marks
  the second Yhi Spa to open at a ME property having made its debut at ME
  Cancœn last month. Inspired by ancient healing traditions, the 7,036-sqft
  boutique   spa   will   include world-class Fitness,  Hydrotherapy and
  Relaxation   Centers.  The Fitness Center will feature free-weights,
  machines and cardiovascular equipment, a YHI MOVES   Studio complete with
  an outdoor movement garden and special group Yoga, Tai Chi and Pilates
  classes.  A Hydrotherapy Ritual Center features indoor/outdoor relaxation
  areas (YHI RELAX),  thermo-hydrotherapy experiences, a native Temascal
  sweat lodge and an outdoor cascade shower, while the Relaxation Center
  will offer reflexology paths and a complete selection of signature spa

  “ME Cabo is one of our most exciting projects to date and we are thrilled
  to be bringing the second Yhi Spa to Mexico,” says Guy Hensley, Senior
  Vice President of Operations of ME by Meliá. “Cabo San Lucas is a place
  of passion and warmth and our new hotel and spa are extensions of the
  rich heritage and stunning beauty of this location.”

  A lively atmosphere fills the hotel,  but the hotels’ 150 rooms and
  suites,  which have been created by Rebeca Perez of Interarq in
  collaboration with architect çlvaro Sans, are pure serenity.


  “After the successful opening of our ME product in Cancun, the opening of
  ME Cabo continues to affirm Sol Meliá‘s commitment to invest in this
  dynamic region of the world,” says Sebastian Escarrer, Vice-President and
  CEO of Sol Meliá Hotels & Resorts.  “This expansion further demonstrates
  Sol Meliá‘s desire to open this area to today’s more evolved travelers
  with a product that exceeds their tough demands.”
