(LOS ANGELES; April 17, 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 Cabo.” 


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-story-high 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
