Historic New Year celebrations scheduledfor the iconic Rosarito Beach Hotel & Spa

ROSARITO BEACH, BAJA CALIFORIA, MEXICO---As New Year’s guests at Rosarito Beach Hotel & Spa this year count down to 2024, there will be additional historic significance to the festive celebration.

It will be the last New Year’s gala at Baja’s largest and best known beachfront resort before it turns 100 on July 27 of 2024, an event that will be celebrated on June 15 of that year.

“This year’s holiday celebrations will be especially significant for us as we also count down to our centennial,” said Hugo Antonio Torres, chairman of the resort’s board.

Guests will have two options to celebrate the start of the new year, including one with a two-night oceanfront stay. Dinners, music and dancing will be available in either the Salon Mexicano ballroom or elegant Chabert’s, located in the former mansion of the founding family.

The two-night lodging option in a standard oceanfront room is 7,359 pesos (dollar amount determined by current exchange rate). As well as the stay, the package includes two tickets to the New Year’s celebration in the Salon Mexicano.

That celebration includes an extensive dinner buffet served from 7 to 10 on Dec. 31, plus live mariachi and dance music, countdown and the lucky grapes tradition. The party alone is 1.799 pesos or 1,599 for advance tickets.

Advance reservations are required for the lodging package and can be made by calling either 1-800-343-8582 or 1-866-767-2748. Maximum occupancy is four, including two children under the age of 12, who always stay free with their parents.

Guests at Chabert’s can welcome the New Year’s with an elegant four-course dinner and dance party for 1,924 pesos (or 1.724 pesos for advance tickets), while they enjoy the elegance of a 1930s mansion, furnished from throughout the world.

The resort also will offer three-course Christmas dinners for 575 pesos in its Azteca restaurant from 5 to 11pm on Dec. 24 and 25. Reservations can be made by calling 661-612-1126 (from Mexico) or 1-800-343-8582 (from the United States).
