San Jose del Cabo Grand Mayan Facility - LindaG's Update

June 25, 2017

LindaG was in San Jose del Cabo for a week long vacation. The initial goal was to stay at the Grand Mayan faciltiy because she had heard good reviews. When she called to make reservations, the Customer Service agent let her know that the resort was under construction and to be prepared for construction noise and inconveniences. With that information, she decided to stay at another resort. Regardless, she visited the Grand Mayan to get a first hand look at the extent of the construction and to better understand the end result. The photos on this update provide a graphic story of what is there now and what the facility will be when construction is finished.
Hakkasan Day and Night Club
Following is the introduction statement from the Hakkasan website, located at http://hakkasan.com/about/:
Hakkasan was founded in London in 2001 and has since become one of the world’s most distinguished global restaurant, lounge and nightlife brands.

Executive Head Chef Tong Chee Hwee has led the Hakkasan kitchen since its inception, and his dedication to Chinese cuisine has achieved the group numerous awards including multiple Michelin stars at Hakkasan locations across the world. Leading Hakkasan’s global culinary expansion is International Executive Chef Ho Chee Boon, a Michelin-starred chef with over 24 years’ experience. His traditional techniques use fresh local ingredients to ensure his contemporary dishes retain the essence of conventional Cantonese cuisine. With signature dishes such as the Roasted silver cod with Champagne and honey to the Crispy duck salad, his international expertise creates an impressive epicurean experience.
Following is a press release from the Hakkasan Group website, located at http://hakkasangroup.com/news/hakkasan-group-continues-expansion-two-new-herringbone-restaurants-hawaii-mexico/:

Hakkasan Group, the global hospitality company, today announced that it will continue the rapid growth of its restaurant portfolio with the opening of acclaimed ocean-to-table concept, Herringbone, with two new locations in Waikiki, Hawaii and Los Cabos, Mexico, both set to open in 2017.

Herringbone will anchor its first Hawaii location within the 360,000 sq. ft., newly redeveloped International Market Place in Waikiki. Located on the open-air, third-level Grand Lanai, Herringbone’s debut comes alongside a partnership with developer Taubman and Coastwood Capital Group LLC, in conjunction with Queen Emma Land Company.

In Los Cabos, Herringbone will be one of several brands coming to Mexico as part of a wider partnership between Hakkasan Group and the country’s leading resort operator and tourism developer, Grupo Vidanta.

With anchor locations in La Jolla and Santa Monica, California, and its most recent location in Las Vegas, Nevada, Herringbone will stay true to its “fish meats field” philosophy, offering a refined and relaxed dining experience with a focus on seafood and market-driven ingredients from the ocean, ranch and field. Herringbone will also feature both indoor and outdoor seating alongside a lush garden landscape, bringing the restaurant’s locally sourced ethos to life.

“Herringbone is a priority growth brand for our business as we expand across the US and abroad. Finding the right partners is key to this success and we are delighted to be aligning with such esteemed developers who share our passion for unparalleled service, quality and experience,” said Hakkasan Group President, Nick McCabe.

Founded in the UK, Hakkasan Group is headquartered in both London and Las Vegas with over 50 establishments across the US, Europe, Middle East, and Asia. Its stable of brands also includes restaurants Hakkasan, HKK and Sake no Hana and nightclub / day club brand OMNIA; which is a part of the Group’s diversification into a full-suite hospitality company offering both day and nightlife premium services to guests.
The Hakkasan facilities are stylish and upscale. It appears that is what the San Jose del Cabo Grand Mayan will be offering when construction completes. Following are images of architect's renderings of the finished product:

Bottom line: There is a lot going on at the San Jose del Cabo Grand Mayan Resort. It was great that Linda's Customer Service representative warned her about the construction. She would have been very angry if she went expecting to enjoy a quiet vacation. Nice job!!

Also, the Herrinbone brand of "ocean, ranch and field" menu options will set the restaurant apart from other otferings in the area, which means it could be a draw for non-members of Vidanta Resorts.
