Los Cabos provides numerous options for a luxurious getaway. Many exclusive resorts and spas call the tip of the Baja Peninsula home. Below are three options to consider when selecting your vacation to Mexico.
Los Cabos Westin
A comfortable, familiar brand that provides top notch service is the Los Cabos Westin. The unique architecture definitely separates itself from other hotels as the color schemes reflect the traditional desert tones and make for a soothing setting. It provides two large pools, one for all ages and a second adults only that includes the always popular swim up pool bar.
The secluded beach may not always be swimmable for guests, but can provide a chance sighting of the migrating Pacific Grey Whales just meters off the coast. Additionally, the Westin is a member of the award winning SPG rewards program as a category 5 hotel.
Pueblo Bontio Pacifica
Just a few minutes from downtown Cabo San Lucas, The Pueblo Bonito Pacifica Resort and Spa s a contemporary adults-only oasis. Ocean view accommodations, a gourmet restaurant and even complimentary butler service for all guests staying in suites make for a memorable stay.
And although secluded as well, the resort provides shuttle service directly to the adjacent Pueblo Bonito Sunset Beach where guests stay in cliff side villas and a ten-minute bus ride to its downtown property, Pueblo Bonito Rose all for no charge. The Pueblo Bonito brand may not be popular in the US, but Conde Nast consistently awards the resorts with top accolades from its Gold List to list of the 20 Top Mexican Resorts.
Seclusion can still be found in the heart of Cabo San Lucas. Just steps from the world-class marina and directly on the swimmable Medano beach, Hacienda Beach Club and Residences opened its doors in January 2010. With views of the beach, cruise ships, and all the water activities the action is close, but luxury, comfort, and service can make it seem miles away at times.
With the residences, beach front villas, and penthouses, all available to rent for a night or weeks, the Hacienda provides a taste of the utmost. And no matter the accommodation all guests and the public have access to the Hacienda Cocina y Cantina that serves top quality Mexican food with views of the iconic Land’s End rock formation.
The resorts of Los Cabos provide the traveler with options and the availability of luxury when selecting Mexico as your vacation destination.
Marquis Los Cabos Beach Resort
As part of the Destinations for Artists series, this month we feature the lovely Marquis Los Cabos Beach Resort in Los Cabos, Mexico. From the outside the resort looks like what you would expect, a beautiful, soothing resort. But on closer inspection you realize that it is much more. It is a haven of artistic beauty. “We have invested in the belief that a beach vacation need not jettison the world of aesthetic delight, and that art can be the perfect reflection of nature,” says Ella Messerli, General Manager.
The whole resort seems to be designed around art. The hotel describes itself this way: “On one side of the resort, a long, crescent beach stretches to a rocky point where the Sea of Cortez meets the Pacific Ocean. On the other side, the southern point of the great, 1,000-mile long desert of Baja California, painted in hues of sand, ochre and rust, is dramatically juxtaposed with the deep blues of the ocean. In the middle stands the Marquis Los Cabos spotlighting an art collection as unique as the dramatic architecture itself. Inside, a wealth of Mexican paintings and sculptures seem to symbolize the union of vast ocean and rolling desert.” (From the Marquis Los Cabos’ “Spotlight Art Collection as Unique as Its Dramatic Architecture” Press Release, KWE Group Inc.)
How very true. Every room includes a painting by the renowned painter Agustin Castro Lopez. The entrance to the hotel is protected by sculptures of bronze wings, created by Mexican artist Jorge Marin, that symbolize the landing of angels at the Marquis Los Cabos. The resort features over four hundred paintings and breathtaking bronze sculptures. These pieces were specially commissioned by the Marquis Los Cabos Beach Resort from local artists such as Colombian Ana Mercedes Hoyos, Carlos Rios, Fernando Garrido, and Jorge Marin and Agustin Castro.
The real story, though, is the resorts latest package for artists. Starting last December, the Marquis Los Cabos has begun offering the Aspiring Artist Packages, which include three days of private lessons, a Winsor & Newton Victoria Box, Series 7 Kolinsky sable brushes, a porcelain palette, a 4″ brush vase, willow charcoal, pencils and more. The package also comes with a tour of Todos Santos, a thriving artist community nearby.
Overall, the resort is an artist oasis for those who don’t want to leave art at home.
