Dramatic mountainside resort beloved for its modern adobe architecture, award-winning cuisine, and unobstructed Sea of Cortez views
This Baja peninsula resort has all the makings of a James Bond film set: entry via a torch-lit mountain tunnel, giant stone gates, and a perfectly isolated location on the tip of a 24-acre peninsula overlooking the turbulent Sea of Cortez. Its collection of modern adobe buildings look more like a Mediterranean village than a hotel, where 66 rooms all feature fireplaces, locally made ceramics, and private plunge pools with staggering ocean views (helped by in-room telescopes). The grounds themselves were made for lengthy strolls: walkways wind around the hillside, past the extensive spa, the enormous infinity pool (a popular setting for exchanging vows), all the way up to El Farallón, the open-air restaurant and adjacent champagne lounge built right into the cliffside. Dig in to award-winning seafood while listening to nightly live music and the incessant crash of the waves below.
In the Area
Nature is integral to stays in Baja. Cabo reigns as one of the best sport-fishing destinations in the world, and The Resort at Pedregal’s proximity (an 11-minute drive) to Cabo San Lucas—a jumping-off point for adventures like sport fishing, scuba diving, and golf—means guests are invited to be as active as they want. Whether you’re a first-time amateur or semi-pro, Cabo Fishing will help you refine your technique on a five- to eight–hour charters for one to eight people. Cabo San Lucas is also home to El Médano, the area’s favorite swimmable beach. After laying out, head to The Office for mid-day snacks (ceviche, nachos, fish tacos), fun drinks, and great people-watching right on the sand. A boat trip from the marina is another must for seeing the area’s famous sights, including Lover’s and Divorce Beach and El Arco. Looking to up the romance? Dinners with a view at Sunset da Mona Lisa, a half-hour’s drive away, are second to none.
