The splendor of the Marquis Los Cabos meets the panache of Pineda Covalin fashions.
And you thought Marquis Los Cabos Beach, Golf, Spa & Casitas Resort already covered everything a girl could possibly want in a vacation. Well, ladies, they just added fashion into that heady mix of fun and indulgence. Fans of Pineda Covalin’s scarves, shawls, bags, shoes and jewelry – which are all inspired by the vivid, rich and seductive art, culture and history of Mexico and Latin America – can get an exclusive preview of the designers’ spring 2009 collection and lap up the luxury poolside at a VIP reception. Did we mention you’ll get to rub elbows and talk silk and chiffon with designers Cristina Pineda and Ricardo Covalin?
It’s all part of Marquis Los Cabos’ Fashionista Getaway, which also includes a daily breakfast that is delivered through a private nook, and accommodations in either a junior suite or a private pool casita. Design buffs won’t be disappointed by the contemporary Mexican décor of the junior suite, not to mention the private balcony with ocean views and hydromassage tub. If taking it up a notch is more your style, a private pool casita will offer all that and more, including rooftop botanical gardens and a private swimming pool that’s just steps from the beach.

You can further indulge any new enthusiasm for Latin American artistic endeavors by viewing specially commissioned works of art that the resort has placed at the hotel’s entrance and throughout the rest of the property. Artists include notable names such as Ana Mercedes Hoyos, Carlos Rios and sculptor Jorge Marin. Travelers who can indulge their passion for all things Mexican – except food – will enjoy Canto del Mar, a French restaurant that features the fresh fare of Chef Thierry Dufour, who previously worked in a Michelin two-star restaurant in France.
The package is available for a minimum of four nights between Nov. 20 and 30. You can lure a fashion-phobic significant other or an adventurous girlfriend with promises of blue marlin and yellowfin tuna fishing, golf at Cabo del Sol (a signature course by Jack Nicklaus ranked 68th in Golf Magazine’s top 100 courses), scuba diving, snorkeling, biking or horseback riding on the beach.
