About 40 kilometers south of Loreto, near the fishing village of Ligui, Ensenada Blanca consists of a string of white sand beaches, dunes, and estuaries that are now under development by The Villa Group. At press time, a crew of 400 builders were rushing to complete the first phase of construction so the Villa del Palmar Loreto could open its doors in March 2011. Finished plans call for 2,200 rooms on its 728-hectare property. Part hotel, part timeshare, the resort was planning to open several restaurants, an activity center, kids' club, spa/gym, tennis courts, golf course, and swimming pool in the shape of a giant turtle. Studios have kitchenettes with stainless steel appliances; one-bedroom units have full kitchens. Every suite has a private balcony. Introductory rates start at US $150 per night, but prices are sure to climb as the resort operation gets into full swing.
