Guests can spend their days indulging in the beachfront boutique’s large main pool, the 12,000-square-foot spa, Luna y Mar, where signature treatments are based on the cycles of the moon, enjoy champagne and mole pairings at the Champagne Terrace, and more. The backdrop is a stunning location nestled on the region’s most coveted parcel of land – an extraordinary, 24-acre site at the southernmost tip of Mexico’s Baja California Peninsula.
Guests at The Resort at Pedregal will enjoy the incredible natural ambiance of El Farallon, the resort’s award-winning alfresco cliff-side and oceanfront restaurant. Stocked daily with bounty from local fishermen, El Farallon has become a hallmark of exquisite dining. The resort’s sought-after restaurant, Don Manuel´s, is designed in the style of an authentic Mexican hacienda and serves dishes with a focus on local, organic products grown specifically for the restaurant and prepared using old world techniques in a modern setting.
The magazine’ editors wrote: “Whales and dolphins swim within sight of this resort, where every guest’s need is met before it even becomes a want. No wonder our readers sing the praises of the Resort at Pedregal, located on the southernmost tip of the Baja California peninsula. Carved into a cliff on 24 acres overlooking the sea, guests can choose to get away from civilization — consider swimming with the whale sharks! — or indulge in the best the property has to offer at the spa or poolside. No surprise that one guest — speaking for many — wrote, “My first choice always.””
With the new Beyond the Beach: Baja Luxploration program, the resort offers discerning jetsetters the ultimate in curated travel with a variety of new, one-of-a-kind experiences highlighting the magical spontaneity of Baja’s diverse landscape. From swimming with whale sharks and snorkeling with sea lions to surfing coveted breaks, the elite destination has enlisted a roster of naturalists and pro adventurers to check off the boldest of bucket lists. The resort has insider access to naturalists, adventurers, farmers and artisans, who lend their know-how and personal narrative, adding substance and character to each experience.
