BLUE MARLIN IBIZA COMING TO ME CABO IN CABO SAN LUCA
ME by Meliá Partners with Premier Lifestyle Brand to Enhance Day & Nightlife at Newly-Renovated Resort
22 May 2016: Meliá Hotels International has announced an official partnership with celebrated international lifestyle brand, Blue Marlin Ibiza. ME by Meliá, the group’s experience-driven brand, collaborated with Blue Marlin Ibiza to create its first destination in the Americas, Blue Marlin Ibiza Los Cabos, located poolside at the chic, newly reopened ME Cabo resort.
The ME Cabo location joins Blue Marlin Ibiza’s collection of cosmopolitan beach clubs in trendsetting destinations, from Dubai to Cannes to the original Ibiza setting that has been attracting jetsetters for more than a decade.
Set to launch in November 2016, Blue Marlin Ibiza Los Cabos is staged to become Cabo’s latest hotspot. A multi-concept poolside beach club offering lunch, dinner and cocktails by day, transforming into night with pulsating music from cutting-edge DJs in an avant-garde atmosphere, it is also Blue Marlin Ibiza’s first location at a hotel.
“We are thrilled to bring the spirit of Blue Marlin Ibiza to the Americas at ME Cabo. The resort and locale offer the perfect blend of sun, sea and international travelers looking for a world-class nightlife experience,” said Mattia Ulivieri, Managing Director for Blue Marlin Ibiza Group.
To get a taste of what’s to come, Blue Marlin Ibiza Los Cabos will host a monthly series of themed “Pop You Up” parties, which will highlight the atmosphere and caliber of DJs that Cabo socialites can come to expect once the club officially opens doors in the fall. Scheduled events include:
* June 4 - Pop You Up Kick-Off Party The Rise of the Phoenix
* July 2 – Pop You Up 2nd Edition
* August 6 – Pop You Up White Party
* September 17 – Pop You Up Made in Mexico
* October 22 – Pop You Up Grand Finale
* November 19 – Blue Marlin Ibiza Los Cabos Grand Opening
Designed by 3.14 Design Studio, the space is located on the beachfront adjacent to the hotel’s pool and newly re-tiled deck, where a vibrant blue and white color scheme and contemporary white furnishings create a breezy resort atmosphere. Outdoor seating accommodates up to 500 guests for dining al fresco day and night, while inside lounge style seating for 200 will be available. Come sundown, the interior is transformed into a nightclub featuring over 5,000 square feet of dancefloor space and state-of-the-art sound and lighting, offering everything a top DJ or reveler could ask for.
Featuring a menu of modern Mediterranean cuisine, Blue Marlin Ibiza Los Cabos will offer fresh salads, light bites and plates for sharing on the beach during the day, a full service menu inside the restaurant, as well as top shelf cocktails and VIP bottle service all night long. Daily specials highlighting healthy and organic seasonal ingredients will also be offered.
“The addition of Blue Marlin Ibiza Los Cabos at ME Cabo signifies our commitment to bringing the world’s best experiences to our guests,” said Alvaro Tejeda, Regional Vice President of The Americas for Meliá Hotels International.
Blue Marlin Ibiza Los Cabos joins a slew of re-invented dining and nightlife concepts introduced at ME Cabo this year, including TullPu, a new signature Peruvian restaurant concept developed by the food & beverage team at Meliá, and Cabo’s popular destination, Rose Bar, which has been re-imagined with a new interior and members-only Sub Rosa lounge tucked away upstairs.
Following an extensive $16 million renovation, ME Cabo re-opened in March 2016 with refreshed rooms, suites and public spaces, including new restaurants and clubs on property and a completely a re-tiled pool deck. With a total of 162 guest rooms, including 62 ME+ Suites, the resort blends Mexican culture and design with modern resort amenities to create a luxurious beachfront experience. Guests looking for the ultimate Cabo experience need look no further!
Starting in November, Blue Marlin Ibiza Los Cabos will be open seven days a week, with lunch service from 12:00PM - 4:00PM, dinner service from 6:00PM - midnight and live DJ programming through 1:00AM. Reservations are recommended.
