Hotel Indigo’s neighborhood proposition delivers a stay experience rooted in local culture in the Mexican Baja Peninsula.
IHG Hotels & Resorts announces the official opening of Hotel Indigo La Paz Puerta Cortés, in La Paz, Mexico, a cherished oasis where the desert meets the sea.
The 115-room Hotel Indigo La Paz Puerta Cortés is the perfect blend of serenity and adventure, offering magnificent views and white sand beaches, along with premium amenities, including a beach club, two restaurant concepts, a fully equipped gym, spa, an outdoor infinity and lap pool, as well as more than a thousand square meters of meeting and events space. Guests also have access to one of the top golf courses in the Baja Peninsula and Marina CostaBaja which offers boat tours, kayaking, snorkeling, and scuba diving.
La Paz was once the center of the pearling industry and is still known today as The Pearl of the Sea of Cortez. It is now a quiet town with a tight-knit community, where locals and guests alike can enjoy a reprieve from the hustle of nearby Cabo San Lucas. From vibrant street art to its Malecon that snakes the neighborhood’s waterfront, La Paz and its people share a close connection to the sea and land.
When you stay at a Hotel Indigo, you don’t just visit a place, you fully immerse yourself in it. Hotel Indigo La Paz Puerta Cortés tells the story of its neighborhood for guests to uncover through its architecture and décor. Sculptures within the hotel are inspired by the vibrant coral reefs found in the Sea of Cortez’s underwater paradise. While other design cues throughout the hotel nod to the desert and the Baja sun through use of lighting, color palettes and textures. Guests will also uncover the use of local materials, such as brass and red stone from Sierra de la Laguna as well as resin-finished floors that imitate the landscape of La Paz that’s waiting to be explored outside the hotel.
Following the recent opening of Hotel Indigo Guadalajara Expo, this latest opening is a step forward in the brand’s commitment of doubling its portfolio in the next five years, which includes expanding in Latin America, where IHG Hotels & Resorts has seen a growing appetite for more lifestyle brands amongst both consumers and developers.
Carol Hoeller, Vice President of Hotel Indigo, said: “As The World’s Neighborhood Hotel, we are excited to arrive in La Paz – a community of the sea, for the sea, and for each other – and to bring an elevated lifestyle stay experience to this cherished paradise that has captured the hearts of so many.”
Pascual Fernandez, General Manager at Hotel Indigo La Paz Puerta Cortés said: “Nestled between the Sea of Cortez and La Paz Bay, our beachfront resort offers unparalleled service in an idyllic destination. Hotel Indigo La Paz Puerta Cortés truly has something for every lifestyle traveler, from personal indulgence to elevated sporting experiences, it all blends in harmoniously through our exceptional interior design and landscaping. Our guests will be able to take in the essence of La Paz and fully immerse themselves in the destination for the stay of a lifetime.”
Hotel Indigo La Paz Puerta Cortés offers several options to experience authentic, local cuisine at Barco, a Baja Med concept restaurant, as well as Puerto, located inside the beach club featuring a pool bar and grab-and-go options.
The state of Baja California Sur has more than 10 natural protected areas and conservation sites, many of which are within the limits of La Paz, such as Balandra (dubbed the most beautiful beach in Mexico), the Archipelago of Espiritu Santo, and Sierra de la Laguna; but the most precious jewel of La Paz is the water itself. La Paz has one of the richest marine ecosystems on the planet and is home to a myriad of species, whales, sea lions, and turtles among them.
Honoring the relevance of its ecosystem, a strong focus on sustainability permeates in both the hotel’s design and service. As part of IHG’s Journey to Tomorrow commitments, the property offers bulk amenities, no single use plastics, and leverages energy efficient equipment and materials where possible, including a desalination water plant and solar panels that generate about 46 percent of the energy used in Puerta Cortés.
Hotel Indigo, as The World’s Neighborhood Hotel, celebrates how guests can discover, or rediscover, some of the most inspiring and culturally rich communities across the world. With 278 hotels open or in the pipeline globally, each hotel draws on the local neighborhood, culture and popular trends in food, drink, and design to create a warm and vibrant atmosphere. Upcoming openings for Hotel Indigo in Latin America and the Caribbean include Hotel Indigo Grand Cayman, Hotel Indigo Tijuana, Hotel Indigo San Miguel de Allende, and Hotel Indigo Guadalajara Providencia.
The best-in-class loyalty program, IHG One Rewards, enables guests of Hotel Indigo La Paz Puerta Cortés and the wider IHG Hotels & Resorts’ family of brands – with more ways to earn and burn points than ever before, including richer benefits tailored to their needs, all powered by leading technology on its new mobile app.
