Montage is Making Moves in Maui and Mexico
Montage Hotels may be super luxurious but with only three hotels (in Laguna Beach, Beverly Hills and Deer Valley), they aren't exactly everywhere you want to go. However, that may change after they open in two huge vacation destinations--Mexico and Maui.
Right now, Montage is building a beachfront resort in Cabo San Lucas, Mexico. Here's an idea of the vibe they're working on:
All of our Los Cabos, Mexico hotel's public spaces, guestrooms and suites will celebrate the area's tradition of indoor/outdoor living.Gracious tiled terraces, shaded courtyards, balconies and expansive windows will offer stunning views of sea, sky and the surrounding Baja desert landscape. Our hotel's guestrooms and suites will feature elegant, hacienda-style furnishings and luxurious bathrooms. A central gathering spot, complete with landscaped terraces, is designed for comfortable conversation and relaxation over morning coffee or sunset cocktails.
The resort will also have "multiple" dining options" , a full-service spa with fitness center, a rotating schedule of wellness classes and year-round leisure activities such as snorkeling in the Santa Maria Bay, diving, boating, golf on a Fred Couples signature golf course, tennis, guided hikes, biking and more. Plus, the hotel will offer "indoor" leisure pursuits as well such as wine tasting and culinary classes. In other words, it's going to be a montage of Montage amenities and services. Can't go wrong with that.
But before Montage opens in Mexico (which doesn't have an opening date), it will actually open in Maui first.
Montage Hotels & Resorts recently assumed ownership interest in The Residences at Kapalua Bay . The switchover will happen officially on August 1 but
Stacy Small of Elite Travel International got a sneak peek of the forthcoming Montage Maui yesterday. While the property is largely villa rentals, Small reports that there will be a Montage hotel component as well. And fans of the Montage Laguna Beach will like what they see as Small says the entryway is reminiscent of Laguna and has "awesome ocean views."
BizJournals.com reports that most of the 91 employees will remain on with Montage. But we'll keep you updated on the changes when August 1st arrives, including the all-important hotel reservations link.
