Auberge Resorts Collection, owner and operator of boutique luxury hotels, resorts, residences and private clubs, today announced plans to manage Chileno Bay Resort & Residences, Los Cabos, a new luxury resort situated on the most coveted beach in Los Cabos, Mexico. Set to open December 2016, Chileno Bay Resort & Residences, formerly known as VieVage Los Cabos, is set amidst the prestigious 1,200-acre resort community of Chileno Bay, a Discovery Land Company development, comprised of a private beach club, Tom Fazio-designed 18-hole golf course, residences and more.
“Auberge Resorts Collection is synonymous with exceptional luxury experiences and we are pleased to work in partnership to create the premier resort destination in Los Cabos,” said Mark Cooley, Partner, SV Capital Partners, the developer of Chileno Bay Resort & Residences. “The resort will be unlike anything else in the marketplace, offering a modern, active and outgoing spirit in its design and lifestyle. Coupled with Auberge’s signature intuitive service, we know it will be a highly sought-after destination for guests seeking Cabo’s newest luxury experience.”
Chileno Bay Resort & Residences is poised to be a relaxed, interactive resort escape, offering a lifestyle that celebrates shared experiences for families, groups of friends and active couples. The resort is defined by its premier setting on Los Cabos’ largest year-round swimmable beach, its fresh, contemporary architecture and design, signature restaurant, destination spa and Auberge’s exceptional service. A centerpiece, three-tiered zero-edge pool which spans 138 meters (150 yards) will serve as the prime location at the resort embodying energetic essence of Chileno Bay Resort & Residences.
“The natural beauty of Chileno Bay from its days as a sleepy fishing village is still unparalleled,” said Mark Harmon, Founder and Managing Partner, Auberge Resorts Collection. “Chileno Bay Resort & Residences, with its close proximity to and allure of the ocean—in addition to the magnificent cascading pool at the heart of the resort that takes guests into the sandy shores of Chileno Bay— is poised to be an unforgettable Cabo retreat.”
The San Francisco design team of Glazier Le Architects and interior designers BAMO embraced the natural environment and a contemporary indoor-outdoor aesthetic, infusing a color palette of earth, plant and sea tones with bright sea-colored tiles, custom fabrics, high-quality natural materials, original artwork and stylish fixtures throughout to create a timeless, elegant desert-meets-ocean environment.
Chileno Bay Resort & Residences will comprise 60 guest rooms ranging from 760 to 885 square feet of interior and exterior space, and 32 expansive two-, three-, and four-bedroom villas ranging from 3,300 to 4,500 square feet—featuring outdoor showers, terraces, indoor showers and soaking tubs, along with handcrafted furniture and accessories created by local artisans. Interior design finishes include marble flooring, artisan plaster walls, and intricately designed hand-made colorful tiles. Accommodations will feature an open concept with floor-to-ceiling windows and doors that open to ample private terraces. Ground-floor villas will all have private pools, while the upper-level villas will have Jacuzzis. All residential villas will be equipped with indoor-outdoor gourmet kitchens featuring Wolf and Subzero appliances, outdoor showers, and lush garden, pool or exquisite ocean views.

Amenities at Chileno Bay Resort & Residences will include three culinary concepts including the resort’s signature restaurant, a breezy open-air space designed by Los Angeles-based Gulla Jonsdottir Architecture + Design, offering local, freshly caught seafood, raw bar and interactive ceviche bar. Here, guests will be able to enjoy sunset cocktails and panoramic ocean views from hanging chairs overlooking the beach or by fire pits at the water’s edge. A beachside taco bar will offer specialty tequilas in an interactive casual setting at the edge of the beach, while a poolside grill will serve lighter fare for lunch.
A signature full-service spa will include 10 treatment rooms, a couples retreat room, a purification garden, a cool plunge pool, sauna and reflexology pool.

The Activity Center at the center of the resort houses the fitness center, movement studio, the “Pescaditos” Kids Club, private theater, and the Chileno Lounge, which will be open to guests throughout the day as a place to retreat and relax, read a book, watch a sporting event, or mingle with other guests.
