The most anticipated new private resort community in Los Cabos, Rancho San Lucas is a master-planned development set in rolling desert foothills that slope to 1.2 miles of pristine beachfront on the Pacific Ocean. Located only 15 minutes from downtown Cabo San Lucas, a deep-sea fishing and nightlife capital, this exclusive, gated enclave occupies a privileged location that offers a level of serenity rarely found in Cabo. A new highway cut through the mountains has reduced the drive time to 30 minutes for FBO arrivals at Los Cabos International Airport (SJD).
The Solmar Group, an award-winning hospitality company in Los Cabos, has assumed the role of environmental steward at its first master-planned residential development. Residents and visitors alike are the beneficiaries of the company’s sustainable, eco-friendly initiatives. Of the development’s total of 834 acres, 106 acres have been preserved and left untouched. An additional 186 acres is dedicated to the resort’s centerpiece, a signature Greg Norman-designed golf course.
Known for employing a ‘least-disturbance’ approach in his design projects, Norman has created a multi-themed layout that features sweeping ocean views from every hole. The site’s contours and topography, he enthused, are ideal for the routing of a world-class course.
Spanning three different ecosystems, the 7,260-yard, par-72 course descends to enormous windswept dunes at the start, climbs through a thick cactus forest creased by meandering arroyos in the middle of the round, and returns players to the beach and sea on the back nine. A fall 2019 opening is anticipated.
With two fully hosted comfort stations spaced around the course, players will enjoy an all-inclusive experience during the round. A handsome ranchero-style clubhouse, featuring an indoor-outdoor restaurant and event lawn, overlooks the fairways and sea.
There are three real estate options at this landmark development, a low-density community that is poised to redefine the coastal living experience in Cabo. The Villas at Rancho San Lucas, occupying a bluff at the development’s highest vantage point and totaling 134 homes, offer panoramic views of the ocean, fairways and desert. The Villas feature updated Mexican-Spanish architecture, with earth-toned stucco walls, clay barrel roofs, arched entryways, and cantera stone finishes and ironwork trims. Five different floor plans are available. The use of top-quality materials, coupled with great attention to detail, create an ambience of natural elegance.
The Norman Estates, the most exclusive address within Rancho San Lucas, features 32 single-level, luxury estate homes and 36 luxury condominiums, all with panoramic views of the Pacific and a trio of seaside golf holes. The hacienda-style homes at Norman Estates reflect a “Baja Chic” design ethos, with expansive indoor-outdoor living spaces that blend seamlessly into the oceanfront setting. The first model home debuted in March, 2019.
Construction will soon begin on the community’s 36 luxury beachfront condominiums, which are contained in four five-story buildings and feature eight spacious three-bedroom units. The impeccably appointed penthouses offer incomparable ocean and golf course views.
The Norman Estates at Rancho San Lucas offer seclusion, comfort and relaxation that includes access to a private oceanfront beach club complete with pool, gym, restaurant and recreation room. RanchoSanLucas.com
