Americans have been flocking to the Mexican state of Baja California Sur for decades, especially Los Cabos. The resort town is the meeting point between the Sea of Cortez and Pacific Ocean. Its most Instagrammable feature, The Arch and its powerful separation of the two bodies of water.
The destination has a bevy of cool hotels; one of them, Las Ventanas al Paraíso, A Rosewood Resort (@lasventanasalparaiso). Situated on a pristine beach, the property hosts 66 rooms & suites, five villas, 12 Signature Beach Villas, and the 28,000 square foot Ty Warner Mansion.
Gastronomes are in for a treat with the hotel’s five appetizing and well-designed dining venues, which, in the spirit of giving you a quick “taste,” include authentic Mexican food at restaurant, Alebrije; The Sea Grill and its cooked-over-a-fire dishes; as well as a lido-side taqueria. Their new vegan market pop-up, Bonberi at Las Ventanas is pretty cool too.
The hotel boasts Los Cabos’ first lazy river and an Oasis pool equipped with a team of butlers.
Love is in the air here — not just with the idyllic setting, but also through the workings of the hotel’s Director of Romance. Whether it’s an anniversary, proposal, or simply just a couple’s getaway, this director can make you and your partner’s dreams come true through a wide-range of customized set-ups (just thinking out loud here, but rose petals on the bed, champagne, a significant other, and ocean view sound quite alluring).
At the spa, R&R is front and center. Take the Four Elements menu, which is inspired by ancient Baja healers, tapping the powers of earth, air, fire, and water for extensive nourishment. Four hours in its entirety, you can definitely catch us booking the Essential Collection treatment. It commences with a dry brush exfoliation to enhance lymphatic flow and blood circulation; then, a scrub utilizing a traditional “Mole” recipe including chilies, chocolate and peanuts further energizes and detoxifies the skin; after that, an outdoor shower and purifying body wrap with indigenous herbs and plants; and, lastly, it finishes off with a botanical bath and full body Swedish or deep tissue massage.
In conclusion, Cabo is calling.
