Hotel El Ganzo is an art and music lover’s utopia with its in-house recording studio, an artist in residence program, live artists installations and renowned musician performances on site.
El Ganzo is Los Cabos’ hippest and most unique luxe boutique hotel, often described as a place of experiences. With its very own Cultural, Art & Musical program, it is a member of ‘Preferred Lifestyle´ and offers 70 rooms. Expansive views of the Sea of Cortez and Puerto Los Cabos Yacht Marina set the tone. Perfectly situated between the area’s natural beauty and modern delights, the property stands at the mouth of Marina Puerto Los Cabos bordered by the fisherman’s wharf, and is only a 20-minute drive to the airport or just 5 minutes to the historic town of San José del Cabo and the famous Art Walk.
“The Underground” is the hotel’s state-of-the-art recording studio, aptly named as it is located underground and accessed only via a trap door in the floor of the lobby lounge. Acoustically and electrically isolated from the rest of the hotel, The Underground is stocked with the highest quality equipment including Blue Microphones, Fender and Gibson. The Underground can accommodate anything from solo artists to entire bands, any time of the day or night. The studio is also available for rent over extended periods.
Where most hotels have a lobby bar, El Ganzo has a lobby venue complete with a stage and surround sound system fit to host internationally renowned musicians for El Ganzo Sessions, a series of live performances held on-site. Guests can enjoy performances free of charge.
El Ganzo also features a one of a kind artist in residence program that invites artists from all over the world to create masterpieces and use El Ganzo as their canvas. Artists are given absolute freedom to create works of art inspired by the property and its unique atmosphere and creative vibe. Artists can choose to create live installations throughout the hotel that guests can see, and musicians take advantage of The Underground studio. Hotel El Ganzo’s website is updated bi-weekly with new artist news, comings and goings as well as El Ganzo Sessions performances.
Hotel also features:
- Rooftop Infinity Pool: Nothing says “ooh” quite like an infinity pool, and the graceful stretch of water that occupies some 2,013 square feet/187 square meters on the roof is especially alluring. Bali daybeds dot the perimeter, inviting guests to relax and perhaps enjoy a cocktail as they gaze at the beautiful Sea of Cortez. An eclectic music mix — which often includes original work produced at the Underground Studio — helps to set the tone here. After dark, the pool is dramatically illuminated, providing a memorable ambiance for nighttime socializing.
- Activities: You’ll find so much to do at Hotel El Ganzo that you might be tempted to stay on the property during your entire visit. Every Tuesday, the El Ganzo Film Club screens classic and cutting-edge movies, live musical performances accompany dinner on Wednesdays. Sun lovers will find lots of diversions at El Ganzo’s Beach Club, where activities include paddle boarding, kayaking and canoeing (not to mention the perfectly logical option of just lying in the sun).
As wonderful as the El Ganzo experience may be, you shouldn’t miss out on the additional fun that awaits nearby. The savvy staff can recommend the most interesting and even offbeat activities — whether it’s exploring cool nightlife, joining the Thursday night Art Walk in San José del Cabo, or bicycling past impressive yachts, original sculptures and a dramatic cactus garden. Consider them your personal entertainment gurus and ask away. They’ll find the right activity for you.
- Spa: The spa at El Ganzo has five spacious treatment rooms, as well as a therapy pool, sauna, steam room and indoor gym with Kinesis. Choose from indulgences like the Damiana Flower Treatment, which uses the unique aphrodisiac properties of a Baja desert flower to exfoliate and hydrate, or the Mezcal Ritual, a detoxifying experience that fosters relaxation and self-awareness, with an agave scrube, mezcal lotion massage, and desert clay purification process. A tranquil relaxation room allows for blissful transitions between the “real world” and our services, while separate manicure/pedicure area provides a soothing respite, and a small retail area allows guests to bring their favorite products home.
Whether it’s a relaxing massage, a rejuvenating skin treatment or refreshing aromatherapy, guests benefit from an array of eco-friendly, organic products. And the expert therapists are trained to know what makes people tick, so they’ll make sure you leave feeling better than ever.
- Dining: Hotel El Ganzo aims to delight your senses, and taste is a decidedly important one. Whether you’re in the main restaurant, on the roof or at the beach, you’ll find lots of delicious choices. With sustainable, farm-to-table cuisine and its own organic vegetable garden, El Ganzo excels at satisfying.
