FACES + PLACES
From star-studded celebrations to exclusive performances,
JW Marriott hotels hosted a busy social season.
EXCLUSIVE BEACHFRONT GALA MARKS LOS CABOS DEBUT
Nearly 300 guests, media and social influencers came out to play and party under
the Baja, Mexico, sun and stars to celebrate
the grand opening of the JW MARRIOTT
LOS CABOS BEACH RESORT & SPA. The
two-night celebration began with a beachfront welcome event at the ultra-exclusive
Griffin Club, a 45-room boutique hotel within
the resort, which featured an extraordinary
fire performance and music from celebrated
local DJ Antares Guerena.
During the day, guests were treated to
enriching dining, culture and well-being experiences, including culinary demonstrations led
by internationally acclaimed Café des Artistes
chef Thierry Blouet, a guided meditation and
temazcal ritual—held in a traditional Mexican
sweat lodge—in the 21,000-square-foot Jasha
Spa, and an art walk exploring the resort’s
extensive multimillion-dollar collection, which
includes works from Jaume Plensa, Jan
Hendrix and more.
The celebration continued with an evening gala, including a starlit feast honoring
the sacred pitaya fruit and other ingredients
indigenous to the region. Following dinner,
guests explored the expansive property while
being treated to live percussion, water artists creating modern reinterpretations of
regional cave paintings and cocktails under an
open-air temazcal lighting up the night’s sky.
International recording artist Betty Who kept
the party going well into the early morning.
