A newer region for American travel located on the eastern coast of Mexico’s Baja California Peninsula, Danzante Bay at the Islands of Loreto is an emerging and secluded hotspot reachable via direct flights on American Airlines . A 741-acre masterplan resort community set amidst the dramatic Sierra de la Giganta mountains and bordered by the turquoise waters of the Sea of Cortez, expect miles of unspoiled landscapes and vistas as it is part of the Loreto Bay National Marine Park, A UNESCO World Heritage site.
Notably, the community is home to the exceptional TPC Danzante Bay, an 18-hole golf course from Rees Jones boasting some of the most striking holes in golf, and the 140-room Villa del Palmar Beach Resort & Spa. The resort offers an extensive all-inclusive plan and feels as though it was built for families and group getaways given the ample, colorful suites, some of which accommodating more than 10 people; a 39,000-sq.-ft. spa with more than 75 treatments; five unique pools; an immersive kids’ club; and four dining options.
Adding to the cool factor for kids: an in-suite camping experience; nightly shows that allow them to come on stage; pool toys; shell painting; jewelry making; golf (and mini golf) lessons; theme nights; and both a personalized check-in and check-out area for kids so they can feel in charge.
New this year, there are also now – for the first time ever – home sites up for grabs as well. Ranging from 2,900 to more than 6,000 square feet, full built offerings start at $1.7 million while lots are available from $450,000. Owners enjoy a private beach club, access to the resort’s fitness facilities and special rates and access to the spa and restaurants.
