Capella Pedregal's dramatic setting continues to set the standard for ultra-luxury hotels.

The proximity of the resort to the ocean provides stunning seasonal views of humpback whales which congregate around the hotel's peninsula. 

Accessible only by the 1,000-foot private Dos Mares tunnel, Capella Pedregal is reminiscent of a Mediterranean mountainside village. Its interior design celebrates traditional Mexican culture, mixed with sophisticated modern elements.  Each guestroom has a private terrace and plunge pool where guests can enjoy sweeping views of the Pacific Ocean.  The resort offers three key accommodation options, the luxurious hotel guest rooms and suites and exclusive private Beachfront Suites situated directly on the beach, providing the ultimate experience in residential living. For more information visit www.CapellaPedregal.com or call toll-free at 877-247-6688.
