Ryokan-inspired beachfront retreat in northwestern Mexico, with Japanese-Peruvian eats and four swimming pools
Laidback luxury and magical minimalism—hallmarks of the Nobu Hotel brand—have finally landed on the Baja Peninsula. The high-end hospitality group’s first-ever Latin American edition is a suave beachfront resort with regional riffs on a Zen aesthetic—think sliding glass doors, natural stone floors, and a neutral palette that echoes the surrounding golden coast. Teak onsen soaking tubs complete many of the guest rooms here, offering the chance to indulge in a private unwind, but that shouldn’t discourage guests from booking a treatment at the Asian-inspired spa (fueled by Natura Bisse products)—a relaxing reverie with a hydrotherapy garden, Watsu treatment pool, al fresco showers, and a soothing water circuit. Find even more bliss at the property’s signature shorefront restaurant, which serves up Matsuhisa’s classic miso black cod in addition to locally-inspired fare like tuna tostadas and scallops drizzled with a piquant jalapeño sauce.
In the Area
The Baja Peninsula’s southernmost tip is often associated with a round-the-clock party zone, though a burgeoning golf scene, courtesy of over 300 sunny days a year, is drawing a more mature crowd. With natural attractions like the nearby desert, the Sea of Cortez, and the Pacific Ocean, it’s no wonder the region is known for deep-sea fishing, whale watching (for almost guaranteed humpback sightings, go between mid-December and mid-March), dune buggy riding, and mountain biking. The resort can arrange a variety of outdoor excursions. An international surfing competition steals the scene every June, while the red carpet is unfurled for a global film festival every fall.
From the moment you enter Nobu it's clear that everything has been meticulously planned not just to create a beautiful property but a truly escapist experience. Every inch of the resort is dripping with minimalist Japanese style from the free standing wooden bathtubs to the multiple beach front infinity pools (perfect spot to watch the sunset). Both our jaws dropped multiple times during our tour. We were lucky enough to stumble across Nobu Los Cabos before it officially opened and cannot wait to go back. Be sure to check to see if they still have happy at Nobu from 4-6 although I suspect this won't last it was too good to be true. Shoutout to our host Martha who took care of our every need and made sure we had an great time! Congratualtions to everyone involved for your amazing property.
Nobu Hotel in Cabos is one of the best hotels I ever visited. The service is impeccable, the architecture simple and elegant, the rooms large and refined.
Personally I did not love the location, pretty far from town, very large and beautiful beach, but on the ocean, hence almost impossible to swim.
The swimmipools are large and never crowded. The gym is small but extremely well equipped.
All 3 restaurants are excellent and Nobu is exceptional.
We will certainly go back soon!
My husband and I, along w/ our infant, took a long weekend trip to Los Cabos and stayed at the newly opened Nobu hotel. The property is tucked away, 15 minutes off the main road, and 30 minutes away from town. Upon arrival, we were greeted with warm welcomes and unparalleled views. An architectural marvel, each and every detail is inspiring and photo-worthy.
The beachfront hotel is impeccably designed and includes 3 pools, plenty of space to lounge and relax, beautiful dining options, a spa, a gym, a kids club, and a host of complimentary activities.
We struggled w/ whether we should spend our entire weekend soaking in the comforts and beauty of the property vs getting out and exploring Baja. One can easily spend days just hopping from pool to pool, cabana to cabana, walking along the beach, and enjoying fabulous breakfast, lunch, and dinner options at the restaurants, plus stunning sunsets in the evenings.
In addition, we were thoroughly impressed w/ the thoughtful service throughout our stay. Claudia, in particular, was very sweet and took excellent care of us. Alejandro, as well, offered great day trip and dining recommendations. The entire staff seems to embrace and exude the Japanese concept of 'omotenashi', which is what often sets Japanese hospitality apart from most others.
Looking forward to visiting again soon!!
