The unique destination of Los Cabos offers a tantalizing array of unspoiled beaches, outdoor adventures, soul-soothing cuisine and exquisite hotels that cater to your every need. Finding a place to stay here is a delightful dilemma for travellers: some hotels offer the epitome of high-end luxurious living while others enchant and delight with chic bohemian style and comfort.
Among this diverse ecosystem of world-class hotels in Los Cabos, two hotels rose above the rest and were recognized with inclusion in Travel + Leisure’s 2021 It List of Best New Hotels. This annual list is curated by the editors and spotlights 73 of the most remarkable new and newly-renovated properties from around the globe. Though the two featured properties from Los Cabos differ greatly in scale, experience, and architectural design, it isn’t hard to see why both made this exclusive and coveted list…and why you shouldn’t wait to experience them both for yourself.
De-stress in the lap of luxury
Four Seasons Resort Los Cabos at Costa Palmas
This first-ever Four Seasons marina resort opened its doors in 2019 in Costa Palmas, an exclusive luxury tropical hideaway with the Sierra de la Laguna as a backdrop. Spread across 3.2 kilometres (2 miles) of untouched beachfront on the Sea of Cortez, this property delivers tranquillity and serenity to those who enjoy peace, quiet and beautiful natural surroundings. This prestigious resort offers a sleek modern design that complements nature and luxury in an authentic Mexican environment.
Minimalist contemporary architecture and neutral tones blend with the surrounding desert landscape. The property’s 114 guest rooms and 27 suites come with spacious outdoor terraces that open to views of the sea. Guests can choose from a variety of restaurants present on the grounds. However, the resort’s crown jewel is Estiatorio Milos, a seafood restaurant run by renowned chef Costas Spiliadis that sits right on the beach and is perfect for a romantic rendezvous for two.
Where you become one with nature
Paradero Todos Santos
In January 2021, the sleepy surf hamlet of Todos Santos was woken up when Paradero Todos Santos welcomed its first guest. This new 35-suite luxury resort exists in harmony with the community and the surrounding natural beauty. The property’s goal is to be 80 per cent landscape and 20 per cent artificial structures. It boasts a 10,000 square foot botanical garden and over 50,000 palm trees, giving the property the appearance of a lush oasis in the desert. The resort seeks to provide guests with an experience ripe with sensory delight, cultivating a sense of place and brimming with adventure.
The bedrooms come with white cedar wood furniture and textiles woven by artisans from Oaxaca. The resort’s outstanding restaurant has an open flame kitchen famous for Chef Eduardo Ríos’s shrimp zarandeado and spicy mezcal margarita. Perhaps one of the best parts of the stay is the guided activities, graciously rolled in to the all-inclusive nightly rates. You can enjoy yoga classes on the beach, catch cresting waves during a surfing lesson, wander around on a taco tasting tour, or take guided hikes and mountain biking excursions, among many other activities.
In the midst of a pandemic, the tourism owners and operators of Los Cabos remained busy by elevating their properties to new heights of splendour. As tourism resumes, guests at these two properties will discover that the old adage is true: good things really do come to those who wait. Start planning your trip to Los Cabos today.
