Where you really do get what you want
By Noelle Valentine
If world-class golf, pristine beach-front vistas and easy travel from Houston define your idea of the perfect getaway, then Las Residencias Golf and Beach Club is a destination that will give you exactly what you want. Las Residencias is a Private Residence Club devoted to golfers and their families. Located adjacent to the world-renowned Casa del Mar Golf Resort and Spa, the Club is nestled on the beach side of the Cabo Real master planned community in Los Cabos, Mexico.
Located at the southern tip of Mexico’s Baja Peninsula in the state of Baja California Sur, Los Cabos encompasses the towns of Cabo San Lucas and San Jose del Cabo as well as the 15 mile coastal corridor that lies between the two. Still considered the “Marlin Capital of the World”, the area’s economy was initially founded on sport fishing which remains robust and world famous. These days, however, with an enviable collection of designer courses (more than a dozen) the area has also become the “Golf Mecca” of Latin America and attracts both National and International enthusiasts.
Situated irresistibly on the sparkling shores of the Sea of Cortez, Las Residencias Golf and Beach Club offers luxury beachside living in a golf community with privileged access to gracefully appointed private residences on the coveted ocean front. Designed and built to accommodate the most discerning clientele, the 20 luxurious Villas feature panoramic views of the Sea of Cortez and are only steps away from the Cabo Real golf course, the Suenos del Mar Spa, gym, gourmet restaurants, a private beach club and a host of local activities.
With Villas spanning 1700 to 3200 square feet and positioned to take full advantage of unrivaled views, the Villas are offered in one, two and three bedroom configurations all of which include a weekly allotment of “cart fee only” golf rounds to be played on the member’s choice of three spectacular courses designed by Jack Nicklaus, Greg Norman and Robert Trent Jones Jr.
A perfect blend of Mexican architecture, modern technology and tranquil charm, Las Residencias Villas are designed and furnished to reflect the elegant sophistication that is expected by Members and their Guests. Spacious floor plans celebrate Cabo’s lively indoor-outdoor lifestyle while the uninterrupted vistas of the Sea of Cortez and the long sweep of white sand beaches provide the day’s backdrop. Each Villa delivers expansive ocean view terraces with heated plunge pools, expansive living room and dining areas, exquisite master bedrooms and guest quarters, marble floors, full walk-in laundry room, Wi-Fi, and plasma TVs with US Satellite channels. Gourmet Italian kitchens boast granite countertops and come equipped with a full array of Miele appliances with sleek design, superior engineering and German precision.
Two Lighted tennis courts, convenient parking and the adjacent Casa Del Mar Golf Resort and Spa provides members and guests with restaurants, a newly completed Sports Bar, Spa, Fitness Center and Beach Club/Sun Deck, all of which elevate the quality of the experience and leave nothing to be desired. Members and guests also enjoy significant discounts on food and beverage as well as spa services at the Casa Del Mar Hotel.
With a mission meant to combine the comforts of Private Residence Club membership with the legendary service and amenities that are hallmarks of Grupo Questro’s Casa Del Mar Golf and Beach Resort, management services by Casa
del Mar ensure that everyday living is a pleasure. And concierge service allows members to enjoy the royal treatment including daily housekeeping, in-residence dining and pre-arrival arrangements.
PLAY UNFORGETTABLE GOLF!
Las Residencias Golf and Beach Club members enjoy “cart-fee only” access to three of Los Cabos’ finest golf courses operated by Questro Golf included in their membership: Cabo Real, Puerto Los Cabos and Club Campestre.
Cabo Real Golf Club – This extraordinary golf course, designed by Robert Trent Jones Jr and which hosted two PGS Senior Slams, gained worldwide recognition immediately upon opening and is highlighted by its spectacular ocean front holes. The dynamic natural beauty of this course is found in the unique blend of canyons, mountains and ocean golf it offers to players as well as the opportunity to sometimes watch breaching whales just yards away.
Trent Jones said, “I attempted to create a high-quality course to look as though it had been entirely designed by the landscape itself, in which each hole provides an ocean view.” The result is a layout that blends into the environment so that desert hues, fairways and greens, hills and mountains and the ocean all coexist in harmony.
Club Campestre – Offering incomparable beauty on and off the course, Jack Nicklaus has created a design that takes advantage of the diverse landscape of the Baja California desert, combining a wide variety of natural elements and placing lush green carpets in the middle of desert arroyos and giant cacti.
Nestled at the foot of the Sierra del La Laguna Mountains, Club Campestre features undulating fairways, elevated greens and amazing views of the Azure blue Sea of Cortez and the beauty of the Sierra de la Laguna from every hole. It is also one of the first golf courses in the area to feature paspalum grass, a drought resistant variety that flourishes year-round in hot, salt-air climes producing a thick emerald green carpet-like surface that serious golfers love.
Here too, practice facilities are second to none and the expansive pro shop, modern restaurant and full service locker room facilities complete the equation. When you’re not playing a full round, take advantage of the Club’s private lessons and group clinics.
Puerto Los Cabos – If you’re looking for a golfing experience that you can’t find anywhere else in the world, look no further than Puerto Los Cabos where you can play a front nine designed by Greg Norman and back nine designed by Jack Nicklaus. This course will truly challenge your game with its variety which reflects the varying philosophy of two of the game’s greatest legends. For example, Norman’s greens offer long sweeping breaks while Nicklaus’ greens are multidimensional and feature multiple breaks.
A round at Puerto Los Cabos is also a culinary dining experience. PLC features an “All Inclusive” approach to golf with fresh food made to order at each comfort station (Palapa) as well as an open bar featuring National and International drinks. At the end of the day, a round at Puerto Los Cabos will provide memories to last a lifetime.
If your needs don’t require a Villa or if you are not quite ready for membership, then you might just find your Zen at Casa Del Mar Golf resort and Spa, an exclusive five-star authentic Mexican resort hotel, designed in a truly 16th century Mexican hacienda style.
Ideally located in the master-planned Cabo Real community, the amenities at Casa del Mar Golf Resort and Spa include six fresh water pools, the beach club-sun deck, eight tennis courts, the sumptuous Sueños del Mar Spa by Mex-Sun, two gourmet restaurants, three bars and lounges and miles of white sand beaches to explore. Upon arrival, guests are pampered with impeccable, executive class concierge service tailored to both anticipate and suit every need and to allow families to enjoy the many world-class activities and attractions in Los Cabos.
The newly refurbished Sueños del Mar Spa by Wet Sun, spanning nearly 5,000 square feet, provides a haven for ultimate tranquility and rejuvenation. Every detail is an important part of the experience, and every sense is indulged, from the rituals that accompany each treatment to the use of exclusive premium products. A visit to the spa will make any stay at the Villas or the resort a wonderful and relaxing experience that will soothe your mind, body and soul.
