France, Paris. March 20, 2019

Accor announced the continued expansion of its luxury portfolio in the North and Central American region with the introduction of the vibrant and playful SO/ Hotels & Resorts luxury brand in Los Cabos, Mexico. Slated to open at the end of 2021, SO/ Los Cabos Hotel & Residences will be an exciting, fashionable and luxurious new beachfront hotel and residential address located on the renowned Baja California Peninsula on the Pacific Coast of Mexico.

The first SO/ property in Mexico, and the second in the region, the avant-garde hotel & residences will boast stylish interiors and decor combined with exceptionable signature services, lively social events, entertainment and unique experiences in a prime setting on the outskirts of San Jose del Cabo, an area well known for dramatic desert scenery and majestic ocean views.

"We are proud to expand SO/ Hotels & Resorts in our region and bring our unconventional and exclusive luxury lifestyle brand to Mexico," said Chris Cahill, Deputy Chief Executive Officer, Accor. "SO/ Los Cabos Hotel & Residences will introduce an incredibly bold and exhilarating energy to the Baja California Peninsula, blending the brand's audacious luxury and services with the heart and soul of the destination. The property will most certainly become an exciting addition to Los Cabos, appealing to chic international luxury travelers and stylish locals."

Daring design is at the heart of the brand, and like all other SO/ properties around the world, SO/ Los Cabos Hotel & Residences will be brought to life by a celebrated fashion designer that will lend their artistic vision to the property. Ideally situated on 7.5 acres of pristine beachfront, the property will be a glamorous and vibrant sanctuary comprised of 200 chic hotel guest rooms and 36 luxury residences with sweeping beach and ocean vistas.

SO/ Los Cabos Hotel & Residences will offer an impressive rooftop experience, including two modern restaurants that will serve innovative Mexican gastronomy; a trendy lounge with outstanding ocean views, surrounded by five swimming pools; and striking outdoor event spaces with floor-to-ceiling glass windows. The hotel will also feature 7,500 square-feet of flexible indoor and outdoor function space; a SO/ SPA offering bespoke treatments inspired by Mexican beauty rituals; access to an 18-hole Nicklaus Design golf course adjacent to the property; and a SO/ FIT fitness center including a striking glass-bottom pool. 

With fashionable properties located in select high-energy and dynamic destinations worldwide, SO/ Hotels & Resorts is one of the fastest growing lifestyle brands in Accor's luxury portfolio. In addition to the upcoming openings of SO/ Havana Paseo del Prado in Havana, Cuba (2020) and SO/ Los Cabos Hotel & Residences (2021) in the North & Central American region, the brand will soon unveil hotels in dynamic and desirable locations worldwide including Kuala Lumpur (2020), Samui (2020) and Jakarta (2021.)

Food & Beverage: Millennial Chefs Lead the Way

Led by Millennial chefs, hotels continue to foster sustainability, sourcing and wellness within their dining rooms and banquet spaces, and by all measures, this is responsible for an increase in their revenues. In many hotels, the food & beverage division contributes 50 per cent or more to hotel sales and they are currently experiencing double-digit growth. As a result, hotel owners are allocating an increasing amount of square footage for F&B operations. The biggest area of investment is in catering, which is thriving due to weddings, social events and business conferences. Hotels are also investing in on-site market or convenience stores that offer fresh/refrigerated foods, and buffet concepts also continue to expand. Other popular food trends include a rise of fermented offerings such as kombucha, kimchi, sauerkraut, tempeh, kefir and pickles - all to produce the least processed food possible, and to boost probiotics to improve the immune system. Tea is also enjoying something of a renaissance. More people are thinking of tea with the same reverence as coffee due to its many varieties, applications and benefits. Craft tea blending, nitro tea on tap and even tea cocktails are beginning to appear on some hotel menus. Another trend concerns creating a unique, individualized and memorable experience for guests. This could be a small consumable item that is specific to a property or event, such as house-made snack mixes, gourmet popcorn, macaroons, or jars of house-made jams, chutneys, and mustards -all produced and customized in house. One staple that is in decline is the in-room minibar which seems to have fallen out of favor. The August issue of the Hotel Business Review will document the trends and challenges in the food and beverage sector, and report on what some leading hotels are doing to enhance this area of their business.
