Where Did Mexico's Prez Stay During Cabo's G20 Conference?
Now that his time as Mexico's President has come to an end, Felipe Calderon has begun a year-long fellowship at the Harvard Kennedy School in Boston. We're sure he's freezing his tail off, no doubt in need of an early spring break. Where do you think his in-class daydreams are taking him?
We're guessing back to Cabo, which he chose as the site of the 2012 G20 Summit last summer. Obama posted up at the Esperanza Resort, but where did Mr. Calderon decide to rest his head? We figure the host president had his fair share of open doors when it came to where he would make camp for the conference, an assumption that makes his selection all the more telling. His choice? The Imperial Suite at the Fiesta Americana Grand.
The two-bedroom suite is housed in a private building and features an ocean-front pool, sunken outdoor Jacuzzi, fire pit, and floor-to-ceiling glass windows that allow the scenery and Sea of Cortez to pour into the master bedroom. Check out the photos of the room and the resort in the gallery below. The Imperial Suite is one of those rooms you have to call to book, but $5,000/night is the approximate starting point.
The 249-room Fiesta Americana Grand Los Cabos Golf & Spa Resort is located in the hotel corridor between San Jose and San Lucas. It was the first in Mexico to combine wine and massage therapy in its SOMMA Wine Spa, where treatment products are infused with wine in what's called 'vinotherapy.' We like the sound of that, especially considering it doesn't have anything to do with drowning your sorrows on a lonely Friday night. The best part is that a glass of red or white wine is served to you after every treatment.
Jack Nicklaus designed the on-site Ocean Golf Course and has apparently described it as “the best piece of golf property” he has ever seen. We've included a photo -- you be the judge!
Rates start at $210 per night for an ocean-view room.
