Hotel El Ganzo Celebrates Five Year Anniversary

In Los Cabos, Stay by Suzanne Koch

The chic boutique hotel located at the base of the Puerto Los Cabos Marina in Los Cabos is celebrating its five-year anniversary! Known for its laidback vibe and robust arts program, we’ve got five reasons why Hotel El Ganzo is its own type of boutique experience and why it should be next on your list of places to visit.

1. Artists Welcome

El Ganzo offers a one-of-a-kind artist in residence program that invites artists from all over the world to create masterpieces and use El Ganzo as the canvas. Artists are given absolute freedom to create works of art inspired by the property and its unique atmosphere and creative vibe. Artists can choose to create live installations throughout the hotel and/or leave behind a piece of their work in their rooms.  All of Hotel El Ganzo’s exterior and interior walls are white, serving as an ideal canvas and an ever-changing space.

2. El Ganzo Sessions and Concert Series

Every month, internationally-renowned musicians are hosted by the hotel, and their visits culminate in a free, intimate concert on the rooftop for guests. The musicians in residence are hand-selected by El Ganzo’s music curator, Mark Rudin, a well-respected musician in his own right who divides his time between LA and El Ganzo’s “The Underground,” a state-of-the-art recording studio, accessed only via a trap door in the floor of the lobby lounge.

3. Commitment to Sustainability

Hotel El Ganzo is fully committed to sustainability. Energy is saved by using solar power to heat the rooftop pool, Nopal (cactus) based laundry detergent, which saves 80% more water than traditional detergents, is used for laundering linens. Reusable, BPA-free water bottles are given to guests to encourage waste reduction, and the hotel’s chef sources organic herbs, microgreens and vegetables from a garden on-site. El Ganzo is also a Platinum member of The Center for Responsible Travel (CREST), which encourages guests to skip straws through their no-straw policy and uses plant fiber containers.

4. The Beauty of Giving Back

Hotel El Ganzo may be a kid-free hotel, but that doesn’t mean children aren’t a priority.  The El Ganzo Community Center, which stands across from the hotel, offers a free arts program giving children of the local village an opportunity to engage with the creative arts, and the world-class artists who visit El Ganzo. Additionally, El Ganzo is a partner of Kind Traveler, a booking platform where guests get exclusive hotel rates by donating to their choice of top-rated charities.

5. The Best of Cabo

Located at the base of the Puerto Los Cabos Marina, Hotel El Ganzo offers the ideal location for visitors looking to experience the authentic Cabo. It is a short bike ride and even shorter car ride to the charming San Jose downtown and notable farm-to-table restaurants, and a sculptural garden, the bustling marina and several walking and biking trails are steps from the hotel’s front door. Better still, El Ganzo’s Beach Club boasts one of the few swimmable beaches in Cabo and on the hotel’s rooftop a glass-enclosed Jacuzzi and one of the destination’s most Instagram-worthy pools awaits.

“Since its inception, Hotel El Ganzo has extended an open invitation for artists, musicians, filmmakers, and explorers to enjoy not only a unique and distinctive place to stay, but a special headspace,” said Ella Messerli, general manager at Hotel El Ganzo.  “There is a soul and a vibe that inspires all who visit. We may be celebrating five years, but we feel that the best is yet to come.”
