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.
How to Get There
This place was absolutely amazing! There were a total of 13 guests staying here to celebrate my 50th birthday and Chileno Bay did not disappoint. Eight of us had reserved a 4 Bedroom Ocean View Villa with Pool and upon arrival we had been upgraded to the 4 Bedroom Sky Villa with Pool! Armando (our butler) was so assiduous and attentive, he made everything perfect. I honestly can't detail how incredible this place is.
Chileno Bay Resort is truly a special place and our absolute favorite in all of Mexico. The service is unmatched, the property is gorgeous, the food and cocktails are so delicious. We can't wait to go back! Their guest rooms are both beautiful and oh so comfortable, also the bathrooms are AMAZING -- gorgeous soaking tub and lovely outdoor shower. The three-tier pool is breathtaking, the gym is fantastic... we can't sing enough praises for Chileno Bay Resort! Also we didn't get to use the spa this time, but I have experienced it on a previous trip and it is life changing, from the pre-treatment experience (salt room, sauna, steam, pools, etc.) to the actual massage treatments, it is one of the best spa experiences I have ever had! If you're consider going to Chileno Bay, do it!
The resort staff is one of the best I´ve ever encountered. Warm heart, amazing can do attitudes and attentiveness. The food throughout the stay was awesome. The beverages were unique and of course delicious. Thanks for a great stay.
