A destination full of tremendous contrasts, from seas to deserts and mountains to lush countryside, Los Cabos is also known as “Land’s End” for being situated at the tip of the Baja Peninsula, where the Pacific Ocean meets the Sea of Cortez. There is literally something here for every type of holidaymaker, including unparalleled natural beauty, biodiversity and a range of amenities to appeal to all personalities.
Consisting primarily of two towns – San José del Cabo and Cabo San Lucas – linked by a 20-mile corridor lined with world-class resorts, championship golf courses and luxury hotels, to many travellers in the know, San José del Cabo is the less energetic and slightly more sophisticated twin sister of Cabo San Lucas. Whilst Cabo San Lucas is the party-loving Mexican wild child, her more sensible and elegant sibling, San José del Cabo, with art galleries, colourful homes, delightful Plaza Mijares and charming shops, dotted throughout with beautiful jacaranda trees, is the chosen locale for discerning holidaymakers dining at some of the best restaurants in the region.
In between Cabo San Lucas and San José del Cabo, deluxe 83-room Rosewood resort property, Las Ventanas Al Paraíso, occupies a generous swathe of oceanfront land, a vast proportion of which is dedicated to the art of pampering its lucky guests. There is no reception at Las Ventanas. Instead, your affable personal butler greets you on arrival with a margarita, your bags disappear and your vacation is underway.
A meandering network of terraces, suites, pools, eateries and bars, combined with such intense attention to detail the like of which most will never have experienced before, make this Mexican-cum-Mediterranean resort one of the most exquisite locations on the Pacific. Furnished with the works of local artisans, from tapestries and murals to hand-carved cedar doors and terracotta fireplaces, every inch of Las Ventanas connects the property with its surroundings and local culture, everything skilfully evoking the essence of Mexico’s Baja region. Dishes at the Sea Grill are served raw or cooked using a wood-burning grill or oven. The incredible spa has a hydro-thermal system. The service is attentive in a way that only a mind-reader could possibly provide. In short, Las Ventanas is a dream Mexican vacation destination.
