Welcome to our regular feature, Pitch Your Hotel, where we let hoteliers, general managers and other hotel execs tell us on-camera what makes their hotels so different from all the rest. And believe us, the competition is fierce these days. So sit back, relax and listen to them explain why their hotels are worthy of your hard-earned dollars or rewards points.
Las Ventanas al Paraiso in Los Cabos has come up with some pretty awesome amenities over time—pool butlers who will bring you iPods and “Hot Type” books and afternoon sorbet; aromatherapy, after-dinner bath, and bed sheet menus for the guest suites; sewing kits that have been personalized to the palette of your wardrobe; a tequila welcome platter with various gourmet salts; protected sea turtle release; and, of course, our favorite: a Director of Romance on staff. File that under Cool Hotel Jobs.
During a recent stay at the resort, we chatted up the new Director of Romance, who has the impossibly perfect name of Esmeralda Silva. She just took the job in August, after seven years at the W Mexico City, but she’s wasted no time stepping into Cupid’s shoes, and has already introduced a “Sleeping With The Stars” experience for lovers staying in the rooftop terrace and penthouse suites.
It’s not all about what she can do for you, though. There’s also just something about the resort that…well, we’ll just let her explain it for herself.
Full disclosure: Eric Rosen spent three nights as a guest of Las Ventanas al Paraiso while on assignment for another publication, but all opinions expressed are his own.
