Park Hyatt Los Cabos: A Resort I’m Excited About

Park Hyatt Los Cabos: A Resort I’m Excited About

14

I just realized that I had never written about this property before, so I figured it was worth a post, as this is probably the Hyatt property in the pipeline that I’m most excited about.

Basics of the Park Hyatt Los Cabos, Mexico

Back in 2017, plans were announced for the Park Hyatt Los Cabos, located in Baja California Sur, Mexico. The Park Hyatt will be located on a 26-acre property within Cabo del Sol, a golf resort community that stretches along two miles of beach. The resort is expected to feature 162 guest rooms plus 35 residences.

While exact details of amenities are limited, you can expect that the hotel will offer easy access to golf courses, several restaurants and pools, a large spa, a gym, and much more.

The challenge is that like so many projects, this one has also been delayed significantly. It was initially supposed to open in late 2020, but it’s still not open. The current plan is for the hotel to open in 2023, though who knows how much further that could be delayed.

Below is a video I found on YouTube giving a tour of the state of construction, though it was published in early 2022. The person estimates that it will be ready within 18 months or so, though of course there are often issues with construction that can cause delays.

Why I’m excited about the Park Hyatt Los Cabos

As I’ve written about in the past, Los Cabos is one of my favorite places to vacation. The service is amazing (hospitality is great in Mexico in general, and is even more elevated in Los Cabos), the food is delicious, the climate couldn’t be better, I love the rugged desert-meets-ocean landscape, and it’s also a great place for whale watching. Best of all, it’s close to the United States, so there’s no major jetlag to deal with.

The issue with Los Cabos is that luxury points hotels are largely lacking:

Zadun, a Ritz-Carton Reserve

So it’s nice to think that there will be yet another “true” luxury points hotel in Los Cabos. Best of all, it belongs to World of Hyatt, which means we can look forward to proper elite benefits, like complimentary breakfast, the ability to use suite upgrades, etc.

Redeeming points in Los Cabos is also especially valuable, given that taxes and service charges total close to 35% of the room rate. This should be a great use of points, though admittedly on the high-end, World of Hyatt’s points redemptions are much more costly than they used to be.

There’s amazing whale watching in Los Cabos

Bottom line

The Park Hyatt Los Cabos has been under development for quite some time. The 168-room resort should hopefully open in 2023, but who really knows, given how hotel openings go nowadays. Park Hyatt seems to have an especially bad track record when it comes to opening hotels on schedule — just look at London, Los Angeles, and Marrakech.

I’m really excited for when the Park Hyatt Los Cabos does finally open, as it’s the upcoming Hyatt opening I’m most looking forward to.

Anyone else excited about the Park Hyatt Los Cabos?

    Cabo is toast... it's done...
    Finished.... over.. history..
    One principal highway.. way too much new development. The roads are becoming parking lots already. Imagine 5 years from now.

    Park Hyatt is part of the Hyatt Resorts such as Hyatt Ziva in San José del Cabo?

    Nice property, but unless paying with points, this spot is a heck naw with cash. Mexico needs to get their tourist taxes together smh.

  4. Cmac Guest

    I stayed at the Hyatt ziva on Dec 2021 and it was wonderful. The look service and food service was excellent and the place was clean. Never had any issues with hot water or clean beds - well done! I want to go back here again in December- nice break from winter!

    The Hilton in Cabo is great. No reason to stay any where else.

    Solaz is incredible. Only had one person approach me about time share and I said I wasn't interested. If you stay on the Marriott side, you'll never see those guys. One of the best luxury properties I've been to down there. Incredibly modern rooms, service impeccable. Prices half of other resorts. Should open next year. They had scaffolding all as of two months ago, working on exterior.

    As ECR said, the Cape (Thompson) is a terrific property with a stunning view. We’ve been happily using hyatt points there for the past couple years.

    I think its slanderous to mention Solaz in this article and totally leave out the Cape (Thompson), which is a fantastic points property. Perhaps the best globalist breakfast I've had (maybe tied with the Blue Duck at the Park Hyatt Washington DC ). I think I enjoyed the Cape more than Canaves Epitome which I think you said was among your top hotels ever?

    Will be staying at the Waldorf Astoria Pedregal in a few...

    Will be staying at the Waldorf Astoria Pedregal in a few weeks but after having dinner at El Farallon last year I'll admit I wasnt wowed as much on first sight as your review indicated. Looking forward to comparison with the Cape.

    I hope you have a better stay than mine at next door JW Marriott!
    They fake reviews on Trip Advisor and have a number of issues.

      Trick there is to get into the Griffin Club

    @Lucky you’ve stayed at some of the best resorts in the world, including oceanfront and overwater suites with sweeping water views. How does staying at a beach destination with rooms set so far back from the ocean excite you? Especially with what looks like limited/difficult access for your beach walks?

    1. The Joe Guest

      Not Ben, but as someone who has also stayed in plenty of overwater villas and oceanfront rooms, I don't think that negates the ability to be excited about a place like this.

      Park Hyatt has such a limited footprint in North America, and this will be one of only 2 tropical locations for them here. Frankly, Cabo isn't on my radar for a return visit except for this property.

    What category will this property be?
