Lavish isolated retreats
Once a sleepy fishing village, the beautiful city of Cabo San Lucas has grown to become a top holiday destination for travellers seeking a magical coastal escape. Located 20 minutes from the inner-city stands Las Ventanas al Paraiso, a romantic, secluded haven overlooking the Sea of Cortez. Each sumptuous room has a personal butler service, and some feature outdoor patios with telescopes for stargazing.
Accessible only by a tunnel that runs through the mountains, the exclusive Capella Pedregal delivers the ultimate in luxury with every room boasting a private plunge pool and terrace with panoramic ocean views. Fringing the pristine waters of the Los Cabos Corridor is the One&Only Palmilla – an award-winning resort with a host of lavish facilities including a par-72 golf course and five dining venues.
Few hotels offer the convenience of being near three of the city’s most iconic attractions – Land’s End, The Arch and Lover’s Beach. Nestled between towering granite cliffs and a private stretch of beachfront is the luxurious Grand Solmar Land’s End Resort & Spa. This all-inclusive retreat is the closest hotel to Land’s End and showcases three infinity pools and a tranquil day spa.
Sandos Finisterra Los Cabos is an upmarket resort idyllically positioned near Solmar and Cannery Beach, placing guests within walking distance of the lively Cabo San Lucas Marina. A short stroll away stands the affordable San Angel Suites, featuring just 12 guest rooms, each with a full kitchen and private terrace.
Most of your time will no doubt be spent lazing on many of Cabo’s white sand beaches, so for a touch of semi-solitude you can opt to stay at a hotel that offers a private beach. Hacienda Beach Club & Residences is located near the marina and features self-catered apartments with breezy balconies that overlook a private stretch of Medano Beach.
Esperanza – An Auberge Resort is an upmarket retreat with a two-tiered infinity pool that leads down to a private beach dotted with sun loungers and cabanas. Pueblo Bonito Sunset Beach Resort & Spa also boasts a private sundrenched beach alongside six outdoor swimming pools and an award-winning day spa.
