A round up of the latest hotel and resort news to inspire travel.
Rancho Pescadero has undergone an expansion and is now part of The Unbound Collection by Hyatt Hotels Corporation.
Set on 30 acres in Todos Santos, Mexico — an hour north of the San José del Cabo International Airport — the boutique property first opened in 2009 with 12 rooms. After a four year transformation, the property now features 91 rooms and suites, in addition to the 12 oceanfront villas built into the dunes.
Rancho Pescadero is set on 1,100 feet of ocean frontage with nine interconnected gardens, two farms and a citrus orchard that drive its culinary and wellness programs. There’s also a sea turtle hatchery, a tropical bird sanctuary, and hiking/biking paths throughout.
The adults-only resort is owned by Lisa Harper of Rancho Resorts LLC and is a member of Virtuoso.
This September, Kempinski Hotels took over the former Ritz-Carlton Cancun Hotel and renamed it Grand Hotel Cancún managed by Kempinski. The property marks the first Kempsinki property on the North American continent.

The hotel’s amenities include a fitness centre with sauna and steam rooms, a tennis centre, private cabanas and lounges on a 400-meter stretch of beach, a beauty salon and a kids’ club.
