January 26, 2021 – Elite Alliance, the leader in luxury hospitality management, vacation rental, and home exchange, announced a new partnership with The Residences at Rancho La Puerta, a new wellness resort and spa located in Tecate, Baja California, Mexico. The Residences will be a private wellness-focused village, thoughtfully placed on The Ranch's 4,000-acre grounds set to debut by the end of 2022.
“What a way to start the new year by announcing a wonderful partnership with Elite Alliance,” said Roberto Arjona, CEO of Rancho La Puerta. “Not only do they share our core values centered on the wellbeing and care of their clientele, but they also exemplify a persistent focus on high quality, precise attention to detail, and an undeniable love of nature, travel and the outdoors. Elite Alliance is everything we are looking for to enhance The Residences family.”
The Residences have been designed by Mexico-based developer Grupo Espiritu, which plays a large role in the partnership with Elite Alliance. The majority of The Residences’ homeowners will now have the option to rent their homes through Elite Alliance, in addition to Rancho La Puerta. Owners of The Residences will enjoy the rental program opportunity along with Elite Alliance’s vast global exchange program, offering homeowners access to an extensive portfolio of unique, luxury properties around the world -- even before their homes are built! In addition, Grupo Espiritu will provide homeowners a Premium Membership into the Elite Alliance Exchange, if they participate in the Elite Alliance rental program.
In turn, Elite Alliance exchange members will have access to The Residences. In addition to the year-round amenities and concierge-style services, The Residences provide guests ultimate privacy and stunning views. The elegant homes overlook a woodland stream and a 24-acre, flourishing vineyard adjacent to Rancho La Puerta. Vintners are currently reviving The Ranch tradition of organic grape cultivation central to its early healing programs and to the region of Tecate. Residents and guests alike will enjoy locally crafted wines and meals at the new Winery Restaurant and Market, or they can simply pick up produce and other groceries.
"We are extremely excited to work with Grupo Espiritu and Rancho La Puerta. Our shared vision for The Residences is founded on the Ranch’s philosophy of wellness, personal healing, and opportunity,” said Rob Goodyear, President of Elite Alliance.
The Residences will feature 108 private homes priced from $733,163 to $1,692,600 million and three different housing options including Casitas – two-bedroom floor plan with two and a half baths at 1,961 square feet, Casas – three-bedroom floor plan with three and a half baths at 2,774 square feet, and Villas – four-bedroom floor plan with four and a half baths at 4,299 square feet. Expect a tranquil, wellness-focused enclave with incredible features and amenities, including frequent access to Rancho La Puerta.
