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
The staff went above and beyond to make our stay very special. The hotel is stunning--from the immaculate rooms to the pool, fitness center and grounds. Our family so enjoyed our vacation, we were always warmly greeted by name and our children felt so special. The Kid's Club was a huge blessing and our children begged to go. The craft the ladies made with them were carefully thougt out and very creative. We will definitely be back alone and with our family!
The staff at this hotel treats you like royalty. I have stayed at many luxury hotels and the staff here was amazing. The rooms are very large, the outdoor shower amazing, the spa is gorgeous, and the resort is a desert oasis. I deducted a star because all I wanted was a pina colada and a staff member said they only had the chileno colada. On my last day I saw people ordering regular pina coladas and finally got one. Also, the ribeye at the restaurant was pure fat and they fail to tell you that you’re being charged for water. The coffee at breakfast is also a rip off for not very good black coffee and no refills were offered. However, the espresso/coffee at the separate cafe are great. The private beach in front of the hotel is really rocky and the public beach is super crowded with locals. I discovered on the last day that there is another beach past the cliff/rocks that has no people and no rocks (i wish someone would have told me about it!) - it was beyond gorgeous.
This is a very private, luxurious resort located on excellent snorkling beaches. Great attention to detail, good food and service. Would definitely return! Room was beautifully decorated with a stunning view.
