A life style experience: The Resort at Pedregal

As part of our Green living vacation series, we selected another leading Green resort: The Resort at Pedegral, Cabo San Lucas.

As the story goes, owners the Diaz family wanted to access their beautiful beach-front land. The only way to do so, was to carve through the mountain. The best engineers were hired and the magical resort was conceived.

Capella “ the double constellation” rests on the southernmost tip of  Mexico’s Baja California Peninsula. With 24 mountainside and oceanfront acres, its grandeur complements the beautiful and legendary rock known as Land’s End.

The private hideaway is within 10 minutes from the Los Cabos Marina. Guests can embrace the “Cabo culture” with its colorful shops and authentic Mexican cuisine.

The 66-room Capella Resort and Spa is the  flagship beach resort for the Capella brand. The property amenities are extensive and include 4 pools, 3 inviting bars, a private library, a state of the art fitness center, a world class Spa, breathtaking Cliffside dining and so much more. Excellence in service is a crucial element and the very soul of the resort.

  • The use of natural products from “the Organic Pharmacy” at the Spa
  • Sheets in the rooms are made of organic cotton
  • The linens are washed with Eco friendly detergents.
  • The Spa has adopted a Zen and holisitic approach and offers yoga classes
  • The Kitchen composts and recycles
  • There are recycling bins on the property
  • The landscaping is water-wise and requires less water than the norm

Bustamante heads all 3 dining establishments at Capella:

  • The fine dining Don Manuel’s, where guests can also enjoy a healthy breakfast or brunch
  • Stunningly nestled in the rock El Farallon, which provides superbly fresh caught seafood daily
