Los Cabos in Mexico is a hotel Mecca because of the sheer number of hotels that are located in this wonderful summer resort. However, none of the hotels are quite like the El Ganzo. “Yeah, you say that about every hotel you feature”, you might say, but hear us out first. The El Ganzo is the most diverse, creative and artistic hotel in Los Cabos, and its individuality puts it above its competitors fair and square.
El Ganzo is all about soul, music and art, and is a wonderful departure from your typical, generic boutique hotel. The hotel’s founder Pablo Sanchez Navarro says that that the hotel was built “under the premises of constructing an area, a place or a hotel structure that could become the epicentre for the cultural arts.” This and several other things make the El Ganzo stand above the rest – first and foremost, the view of the marina and the Sea of Cortez from the El Ganzo is something to relish, particularly if you are sitting in the roof-top infinity pool and glass Jacuzzi.
The hotel rooms are very aesthetically pleasing and sophisticated. There are a total of 72 to choose from. The room amenities are many, but we’ll mention just a few – super comfortable beds with 400 thread count bed linen, the Rivolta Carmignani comforters and pillowcases, WiFi, iPads, ceiling fans, air-conditioning, mini-bar, and satellite TV. At the El Ganzo, you won’t find minute packages of bath products. These are full-size organic products, while terrycloth robes are provided by a luxury Italian company Frette.
The hotel has its own Underground Studio where musicians give live performances and artists exhibit their work. The staff at El Ganzo’s Spa will spoil you rotten – there are five treatment rooms, a sauna, a steam room, a therapy pool and a gym. The hotel suggests you try the Damian Flower Treatment which uses a Baja desert flower to exfoliate and hydrate the skin. All the products used at the spa are eco-friendly and organic.
As for gourmet delights, you definitely should try Tlacoyo de pollo, a unique dish made from chicken, refried beans, corn milk, Cotija cheese, pasilla chili sauce, and cactus slices. Or, for desert, why not enjoy in the traditional Mexican churros, chocolate fondue or crème brulee. watch video below
