Completely Redesigned ME Cabo Resort Officially Re-Opens Today on Medano Beach

ME by Melia to Unveil Fully Transformed Property Following Extensive $16 Million Contemporary Revamp

CABO SAN LUCAS, MEXICO--(Marketwired - March 17, 2016) - Back and ready for action, ME Cabo officially reopens its doors today. After an extensive $16 million renovation, all rooms, suites and public spaces at ME Cabo have been redone to elevate the overall guest experience and cement its place as one of the destination's most popular resorts. Architects Patricia Rios and Leonardo Díaz Borioli have worked alongside renowned interior designer Alejandra Contreras to transform ME Cabo to exemplify the vibrancy and simplistic elegance of Cabo San Lucas.

With a total of 162 guest rooms, including 62 ME+ Suites, the resort blends Mexican culture and design with modern resort amenities to create a luxurious beachfront experience. In line with the trendsetting reputation that precedes ME Cabo, guests find themselves surrounded by custom designed aspects that are exclusive to the property. These include furniture and décor pieces crafted by the artistic hands of Mexican masons, carpenters and craftsmen, and new custom designed wallpaper that together culminate in the property's new aesthetic. Brightly colored fabrics decorate the lobby and Rose Bar, while contrasting shades of grey and white provide an elegant and soothing vibe in the guest rooms, as well as the completely re-tiled pool deck and brand new beach club.

The incorporation of culturally traditional artwork was purposefully curated to complement the modern re-design of ME Cabo, creating the property's strongest artistic concept. In addition to its distinctive décor, ME Cabo taps into Mexican heritage through unique paintings and sculptures by celebrated Mexican artist Yuri Zatarain, displayed in guest rooms and public spaces. Contemporary images by Portland, Oregon based photographer Kineo provide a more modern focal juxtaposition on white washed walls throughout the property. These diverse aesthetics blend seamlessly to create an overall vibrant ambiance.

"The unveiling of ME Cabo's highly anticipated property renovations is a thrilling time for our brand and this property," said Alvaro Tejeda, Regional Vice President of The Americas for Meliá Hotels International. "Guests will be welcomed by a new level of luxury and entertainment that is sure to facilitate memorable ME experiences for even the most discerning travelers."

Re-invented nightlife, restaurant and bar concepts also arrive at ME Cabo with its transformation. TullPu, a new signature Peruvian restaurant concept emphasizing authentic cuisine and Pisco cocktails, was developed by the food & beverage team at Meliá and added during the renovation. Rose Bar, ME Cabo's popular destination bar, has also been re-imagined featuring international DJ headliners and a new members-only Sub Rosa lounge tucked away upstairs. Guests looking for the ultimate in "cool" need look no further. Launching this Fall, the hotel has partnered with celebrated international lifestyle brand Blue Marlin Ibiza to create its latest hotspot, a multi-concept poolside beach club offering lunch, dinner and cocktails by day, and music from cutting-edge DJs in an avant-garde atmosphere by night. ME Cabo joins Blue Marlin Ibiza's collection of cosmopolitan beach clubs in trendsetting destinations from Dubai, to the original Ibiza location that has been attracting jetsetters for more than a decade, to special pop ups in London and Cannes.

The menu of treatments at ME Cabo's YHI Spa has also been tailored to include new relaxing experiences that perfectly complement the resort's vibe. YHI Spa focuses on holistic wellness with Ayurveda treatments, dry saunas and hydro-massage. Unique services include the Temazcal, a therapeutic sweat lodge intended to reconnect one with the earth and therapies that incorporate traditional Mexican ingredients like pitaya (dragon fruit), which are derived from ancient Mayan and Aztec rituals of the surrounding region. A fitness center with all the necessary equipment for a full body workout is conveniently located near the spa as well.

Elevating the room categories within the hotel, ME+ at ME Cabo is an entire concept dedicated to meeting the discerning needs and tastes of individuals who know exactly what they want. ME+ features lavish suites, such as Passion and Personality Suites as well as the brand-standard penthouse Suite ME, with floor-to-ceiling windows and extraordinary ocean views. Suite ME, ME Cabo's equivalent of a Presidential Suite, has been outfitted with an unparalleled miniature production booth for celebrity DJs to entertain at private parties and use as a creative den while on property. The suite now integrates three different units spatially connected with a grand stairway. Brand signature Personality Suites are also available for a fun and dynamic stay. A combination of extra space and stunning surroundings with superb sound capabilities provides an unforgettable experience. ME+ guests also receive exclusive access to select lounges and services on property.

Guests in search of meetings and events spaces to host special occasions or incentive trips will find a bevy of high-tech options to choose from at ME Cabo. With a total capacity of 2,500 guests for special events, VIP meeting rooms as well as poolside and oceanfront options are available upon request, in additional to a personal meeting concierge to help make all the necessary arrangements.
