Banyan Tree Group’s legacy as pioneer of the all-pool villa concept and sustainable, wellbeing-focused travel will be infused into the Banyan Tree Valle de Guadalupe experience.
The luxurious enclave, designed by the office of renowned Mexican designer Michel Rojkind (see renders) and developed by Grupo UBK, will boast striking villas that draw in the valley’s natural surroundings with a sense of place that connect guests with the beauty around them. The property sits on nearly 39 acres of land and will be home to Banyan Tree Group’s first proprietary winery featuring vineyards, rooms for fermentation, barreling and aging, a winemaking laboratory, tasting room and underground cellar.
Valle de Guadalupe is a one-hour drive for travellers in Southern California looking to spend a few days in a culinary mecca amongst Mexico’s best vineyards that are well worth the journey.
Nestled among olive oil groves and grapevines, five food and beverage venues are found in the centre of the resort, including a terrace restaurant, fine-dining eatery, cocktail bar, coffee house and a hilltop rooftop concept with views of the valley. Known as a sanctuary for the senses, Banyan Tree’s signature award-winning Spa comprises four treatment rooms, sauna, a state-of-the-art fitness center and both indoor and outdoor swimming pools.
Banyan Tree Valle de Guadalupe will join the global brand’s iconic collection of properties across Mexico – Banyan Tree Mayakoba, Banyan Tree Cabo Marqués in Acapulco and Hacienda Xcanatun by Angsana in Merida.
