Elegant oasis on one of Los Cabos’ best beaches, with a seaside spa and a high-profile restaurant
Designed by hospitality specialists Glazier Le Architects and interiors firm BAMO, this tasteful property by Auberge Resorts features expansive spaces framing unobstructed views of the Sea of Cortez. Contemporary wood furniture and plenty of linen and cotton in natural hues set a relaxing atmosphere, while pops of vibrant color add dashes of Mexican flavor. All 60 guest rooms and 32 villas (with two, three, and four bedrooms) feature private terraces with ocean, pool or garden views, as well as spacious bathrooms with deep freestanding bathtubs and private outdoor showers. Villas also have plunge pools. Aside from deep-blue tranquil waters teeming with pristine reefs, the piece de resistance at this resort and spa is its main restaurant, COMAL, a stunning space conceived by Los Angeles firm Gulla Jonsdottir Architecture + Design. Intricate Moorish-style wood paneling, geometric chairs, sculptural lighting and sweeping views are the backdrop to creative fusion flavors by chef Yvan Mucharraz, an alum of The French Laundry. Contemporary Mexican cuisine with influences from Peru, Brazil, and other Latin American countries includes notable dishes such as braised short rib with cacao broth and crispy octopus with hazelnut mole.
In the Area
Cabo San Lucas was made famous by the scads of celebrities who’ve been spotted in this Baja California playground over the years. While many visitors come here to kick back at the spa and drink cocktails by the pool (which is often just what the doctor ordered), there are also plenty of sights and activities for active travelers. Chileno Bay Resort & Residences is perched on one of the only swimmable beaches in Los Cabos, also a great spot for snorkeling, paddleboarding and kayaking. Nearby, on the area’s southernmost tip, is the picturesque Lovers Beach, a secluded stretch of sand facing a series of dramatic rock formations known as Land’s End. If you’ve had your share of surf and sun, head to downtown Cabo to browse traditional crafts and savor authentic Mexican eats at places like Los Tres Gallos, a scenic open-air restaurant.
