La Buena Vida—the good life—is at the heart of Four Seasons Resort and Residences Cabo San Lucas at Cabo Del Sol. There, on the southern coast of Baja in the Los Cabos Golden Corridor, visitors will find themselves in the vibrant, Rivera-style village of Cabo del Sol. The new Four Seasons experience brings a modern, Pueblos-Mágicos-inspired hacienda, uniting local craftmanship, art, music and food.

From the 96 expansive guest rooms, casitas, suites and villas, plus 61 residences, villas and estates, guests can take in views of the Sea of Cortez. Clean lines and airy spaces blend contemporary luxury with traditional Mexican influences. All accommodations feature retractable glass doors and private terraces.

Guests first enter the property at La Casona, a welcoming gathering space decorated with a large fireplace, local artwork and ocean views. Rather than stand in uniforms behind a desk, employees assist guests in this living room-style space, wearing chic employee fashion from Mexico City-based designer Kris Goyri. Visitors can enjoy innovative dining concepts, from curated tequila tastings at La Casona Bar to an open-air kitchen serving French- and Italian-inspired menus at Palmerio, and more.

Numerous unique and versatile indoor and outdoor venue spaces combine for a total of 19,827 sq. ft. of meeting and event space. Already open for reservations, the property will begin welcoming guests on May 1, 2024.

Housed in the historic department store and Oxford institution, Boswells, The Store, Oxford brings a reimagined hotel complete with a restaurant, rooftop bar, co-working bar and space to the heart of Oxford. The space, with 101 guest rooms, is arranged over seven floors across the two historic buildings with a design intended to celebrate their heritage.

If they opt to visit the ground floor Bar at The Store, they’ll enjoy a space suited for all occasions, from coffee meetings to cocktail gatherings, amongst a fireside snug and floor-to-ceiling windows overlooking Broad Street. The Roof at The Store offers an elegant bar and terrace experience with views over Oxford and a variety of outdoor seating. It will run a range of themed pop-ups throughout the year.
