When it comes to Los Cabos, Mexico, the word “luxury” comes to mind. Yes, the region is brimming with resorts of all kinds and sizes, from the family-friendly Hyatt Ziva Los Cabos to the more basic all-inclusive options like Pueblo Bonito Los Cabos. The combination of arid vistas, blue skies, and pounding surf, on the other hand, makes indulging yourself the first order of business in Los Cabos. This place has many amazing and beautiful resorts to visit. Check out our picks for the best Luxury Resort in Los Cabos right now.
1: One&Only Palmilla
The One&Only Palmilla is without a doubt one of the most opulent hotels in Los Cabos, Mexico, and the globe. Every feature has a high-end feel to it. This contains a Jean-Georges Vongerichten steakhouse, beautiful pools, dedicated butlers, and a lovely stone spa. With contemporary and traditional Mexican features, huge bathrooms, and high-tech facilities, the 160 rooms and villas are nothing short of luxurious. This resort is at the top of our list because of the included extras, which include luggage unpacking, daily refreshments delivered to guests, and an aromatherapy turndown menu. Need a little more persuasion to stay? The One&Only Palmilla is located on one of the few swimmable beaches in Los Cabos.
2: Esperanza – Auberge Resorts Collection
Esperanza is a little more laid-back than the One&Only Palmilla, with a laid-back feel that’s becoming the norm in Los Cabos. In the 123 rustic and sophisticated hacienda-inspired casitas and villas, guests will enjoy luxury without pretence. Bathrooms with side-by-side showers and separate soaking tubs are romantic bonuses. Huge terraces with hammocks or plunge pools are the norm, and suites are equipped with tablets that connect guests to concierges and porters. The hotel also offers a luxurious spa and a large fitness facility, as well as a spectacular infinity pool with breathtaking ocean views from practically every angle. This is especially true at Cocina del Mar, the city’s most famous restaurant.
3: Waldorf Astoria Los Cabos Pedregal
The 118-room Resort at Pedregal, which sits on a long stretch of beach at the foot of towering mountains, is so exclusive that it requires a private tunnel to get it. The style here is a seamless blend of modern design trends and handcrafted elements from the surrounding area. The rooms include beautiful hardwood accents, as well as large bathrooms and balconies with hot tubs, and some casitas have private pools and fire pits. The infinity pools overlooking the beach, as well as the oceanside restaurants and locally produced dishes, are highlights. There’s also an organic spa, a modern gym, and a fancy boutique.
4: Las Ventanas al Paraiso, A Rosewood Resort
Las Ventanas al Paraiso is the place to go if you want ultra-personalized luxury service. While the atmosphere is more laid-back than at the St. Regis (you won’t find a white glove here — this is Cabo, after all), the service is immaculate. You won’t have to walk more than a few steps before someone is ready to assist you. Come to be pampered; the pools are photogenic, the classic decor is eye-catching, and the food is delectable. With oceanfront cocktail bars and a picture-perfect spa, it’s also ideal for a romantic break. It also doesn’t hurt to have personal butlers.
5: Hacienda Beach Club & Residences
Hacienda Beach Club & Residences has a lot going for it, including breathtaking views of the Sea of Cortez and some of Cabo San Lucas’ greatest dining. The 109 contemporary units in this upscale resort range from one-bedroom flats to beachfront villas. With a wonderful spa, gym, and bi-level infinity pool with breathtaking Land’s End views, the home is the definition of tranquillity for the most part. While the position on Medano Beach is ideal — and San Lucas’ bustling marina is only a five-minute walk away — there will undoubtedly be some noise from party boats in the bay.
6: Montecristo Estates Luxury Villas
These pinch-me-now, three-bedroom/three-and-a-half-bathroom cliffside villas overlooking the Pacific Ocean are ideal for large groups. Montecristo has 151 bi-level houses, each sleeping eight people. Infinity pools, gourmet kitchens, and stainless steel Weber barbecues, to name a few, are among the high-end amenities found in villas. Guests get free use to Montecristo’s facilities, as well as the beach, pools, and restaurants at Pueblo Bonito (all-inclusive packages are available). The award-winning Quivira golf course is also available to golfers. Although a car will come in handy, a free shuttle service is provided to important areas around the resort and to town.
7: Chileno Bay Resort & Residences, Auberge Resorts Collection
Los Cabos is experiencing a surge in premium boutique hotels in 2019, with the 60-room Chileno Bay Resort & Residences leading the charge. With a structure that relies on attractively tiered pools, the attitude is lively and easygoing. Those pools are lovely, but the property’s own swimmable beach may be the nicest amenity of all (though guests also love the locavore Comal restaurant, as well as the stunning spa). Cool art can be found around the resort, and it goes nicely with the bright beach-chic accommodations. Beautiful indoor-outdoor baths and huge terraces (many with ocean views) are standard facilities, while energetic types can take advantage of the abundance of free beach activities on Playa El Chileno next door.
8: Montage Los Cabos
Montage Los Cabos is the first Mexican outlet of this North American luxury brand, embracing the region’s stunning landscapes and cultural traditions. The hotel has only 122 rooms, giving it a more personal feel than the neighbouring Chileno Bay Resort & Residences. While there are numerous pools with views of the sea, the Montage Los Cabos is one of the region’s few resorts with its own swimmable beach. Restaurants serve contemporary Mexican and superb international cuisine, while a sophisticated boutique sells local art and crafts, all of which have a storey to tell. To top it off, the spa here is one of the greatest in the region, inspired by the desert and hot springs of Los Cabos.
