Zadún a Ritz-Carlton Reserve, the latest resort in the prestigious Ritz-Carlton Reserve portfolio, is delighted to open its doors, welcoming guests to enjoy an unparalleled experience.
Set along the dramatic coastline of San José del Cabo, Mexico, in the coastal haven of Puerto Los Cabos, Zadún offers panoramic views of the Sea of Cortez.
The much-anticipated new resort marks the fourth extraordinary property in the Ritz-Carlton Reserve portfolio.
“Zadún, like each Ritz-Carlton Reserve, is a rare estate that allows guests to feel completely immersed in the stunning fabric of the destination,” said Lisa Holladay, Global brand leader for the Ritz-Carlton and Ritz-Carlton Reserve.
“Through bespoke design, thoughtful amenities and innovative culinary offerings, guests of Zadún will enjoy a highly personalised, transformative experience completely unique to the destination.”
Created to offer the ultimate in luxury, the striking design of Zadún celebrates both the desert and the sea with 115 elegantly appointed guest rooms and suites, many of which offer an individual pool and terrace, within 42 two-storey villas placed gently along the natural slopes of the land.
All guests will enjoy the genuine care of a tosoani, or private attendant. Among Zadún’s 15 stunning room categories is the property’s signature villa, the Grand Reserve Villa, which offers 5,930 square feet of living space, two large bedrooms, five lounges, a pool, one Jacuzzi, a private kitchen, a gym, a living room, two full bathrooms and two half-bathrooms.
“Zadún has been designed to celebrate the rich simplicity of living both indoors and outdoors, while showcasing the country’s incredible artisans,” said Sandra Estornell, general manager of Zadún, a Ritz-Carlton Reserve.
“We wanted to create a wholly immersive, culturally authentic experience for visitors and every element of a stay at Zadún is designed to encourage our guests to enjoy, explore and engage with their environment.”
The guest rooms offer a modern expression of Mexican design that showcases the talent of handcrafters from culture-rich areas throughout Mexico, such as Oaxaca, Yucatán, Campeche, Mexico City, Jalisco, and Puebla.
The rooms, conceived by uribekrayer, feature a careful curation and combination of materials, enhancing the natural veins of solid wood and stone throughout.
For the furnishings, also imagined by uribekrayer, communities of weavers in Oaxaca were engaged to design and produce handwoven textiles for the pillows, while a unique framed textile serves as one of the primary works of art in every room.
On the guest room terraces, a sculptural art piece made by artists Monica Bizzarri and Raquel Charabatti, lights up to emit a soft glow at night. The resulting design is a sense of place that is singular and unique to Zadún.
Zadún delivers distinct culinary experiences at four food and beverage venues on property.
Humo, open for. dinner, is set in the heart of the property with an open kitchen and breathtaking views of the Sea of Cortez.
Fire and firewood will be present in every dish at this warm, rustic, and refined restaurant, complemented by fresh, exquisite ingredients, and a wide global selection of wines in the Sotano wine cellar
El Barrio, open for breakfast, lunch, and dinner, is a gathering place that presents Mexican-street-food-inspired dishes by day, and an innovative celebration of Mexican cuisine by night.
Evocative of the classic colourful vibe of many Mexican towns, El Barrio offers bright seating both indoors and outdoors.
Meeting space at Zadún has been designed for group guests to celebrate connection to one another and to the land.
Perched at the very top of the property, “Nido,” which means “nest,” is a shared space offering areas for private gatherings, business engagements, and celebrations of life’s very special moments.
Multiple configurations inside Nido’s meeting spaces and its terrace, combined with ample open-air spaces in the property’s cactus gardens and beach areas, are meant to inspire creative, unique setups.
