When this seaside sanctuary opened doors in December 2016, it became the fifth property in the Velas Resorts collection, a brand that’s practically synonymous with Mexican coastal splendor. This 304-room oasis, however, is anything but a splashy behemoth thanks to a number of thoughtful design decisions, from a unique half-moon exterior to a three-story, open-air entryway all seamlessly blend in with the beachy surroundings. The Sea of Cortez, which explorer Jacques Costeau famously dubbed “the world’s aquarium,” remains a focal point throughout the expansive property: gaze at it from one of the many infinity pools, soak it in with a sunset on your suite’s private terrace, or enjoy it as an awe-inducing accompaniment to a cocktail at Miramar, an ocean-edge bar dotted with bonfires. Fearless epicures may opt for a meal at Frida, which serves up a contemporary spin on local classics, paying homage to its namesake painter with one especially extravagant masterpiece—the $25,000 taco, a gold flake-infused corn tortilla stuffed with Kobe beef, Beluga caviar, black truffle brie cheese, and Morita chilies, among other over-the-top ingredients.
In the Area
Sure, you’re just 30 minutes from Cabo San Lucas’s electric nightlife, but you likely won’t stray far from this aquatic wonderland. A quick water taxi ride will bring you to Playa del Amor, a gold-sand beach with towering cliffs, seemingly plucked from the pages of a romance novel. For thrill-seekers, there’s scuba diving at Gordo Banks, an offshore seamount that’s home to hammerhead sharks. Hundreds of humpbacks and Minkes choose Baja’s bays and lagoons to birth and raise their young—for front-row seats to this annual spectacle (peak season is December through May), don’t miss a whale watching tour, which the resort can help organize.
How to Get There
I stayed here for 4 nights and enjoyed every single minute of it. It is a big hotel with more than 5 restaurants inside I loved the Italian one. The all inclusive part, works marvelous and they really do serve you high class drinks and food in every one of them. The rooms are very spacious and confortable. The pools are amazing, specially the adults only one which has an incredible view of the ocean. The only bad thing is the the you cannot get into the ocean because the currents are very high and it is dangerous. Highly recommend it for families because the only inclusive is perfect for big groups and they organice different activities throughout the day for everybody.The decoration is beautiful in every corner of the place.
For starters it has Unbelievable is service. Food is amazing. Especiallly the steak house.
Pools and beaches are stunning.the view from room amazing. Totally check it out if in Cabo.
Will definately coming back.
Stayed for 4 days, 3 nights and had an amazing time. I am positive i will never find a friendlier resort than this one. The detail they put into every experience you have is amazing. I felt like royalty. The staff wrapped me a towel when i exited the pool, carried my plate to the table at the buffet bar (thanks to Karen) and i could never explain in words how wonderful the spa treatment was. The entire experience was one of a kind. I will definitely visit again.
I am pleased to recommend this resort to anyone looking for a high end beautiful resort. I can not say enough about the level of service and the attention to detail of the resort. You are truly made to feel like royalty in every sense. The property is absolutely gorgeous and the food is incredible. This is the absolute perfect place to just go and decompress. And be surrounded by absolutely the most beautiful views and Incredible ocean settings. The Spa is like nothing I have ever experienced, be sure to go an hour early before your schedule appointment to enjoy the hydrotherapy water pool. Amazing, go ahead and book now!
