It’s hard to conceive just how much luxury awaits at Cabo San Lucas. Beyond the stretches of white sand and crystal clear water lie beachfront luxury destinations where luxury-lovers vacation, dine and play.
Here, beauty is often in the name. As translated, Las Ventanas al Paraíso is a window to paradise.
Stay here and you will be at one of the most acclaimed resorts ever. Las Ventanas is known to pamper guests with special touches that are the hallmark of luxurious hospitality. From the Mercedes SUV service that picks you up the airport, to the greeting of all the staff down the lamp-lit driveway, this location is pure luxury. Known for incredibly large suites, this location is a favorite among refined travelers. While on a recent stay, I enjoyed the services of a personal butler en suite with private rooftop and personal Jacuzzi with my own cabana . Amenities included Mexican chocolate , spiced pumpkin seeds, fine tequila and an exotic fruit bowl daily. Evian bottles. Bulgari perfumed soap and bath salts topped off the amazing personal service!
The Pueblo Bonito Pacifica Resort and Spa tags itself as providing “luxury without limitations.” Here, breathtaking ocean views and upscale services are what visitors have come to expect. European-style spa methods keep demanding guests happy and satisfied.
Alexander Restaurant is located on the water’s edge at the marina. With the restaurant’s amazing mixture of Swiss, French and Tropical styles, there is something for every diner. The menu is huge and expands beyond seafood to the featured beef and seasonal vegetables.
Those that wish to dine and cruise will love the Caborey Dinner Cruise. Live music and cocktails await those that love the water and dinner is served aboard a triple-deck catamaran! The choice of six entrees is yours, including steak and lobster.
Traveling with a golfer? Then the Cabo del Sol Ocean Course is not to be missed. Put on the map by Jack Nicklaus, the course is considered to be his masterwork and is said to be on of the best courses in the world. The course plays long and is an amazing challenge.
Golfers looking to take in a real sports vacation will also be seen visiting Cabo Real. It has an amazing Robert Trent Jones II golf course that has been in existence for fifteen years. The course boasts “the wonderful scenery of well kept greens and fairways interact with both the desert and the ocean to form a spectacular playing experience.” Considered a must-play luxury golf destination, visitors will find themselves amazed by the entire development.
Amigos del Mar has been operating in Cabo for over 30 years and offers dive and snorkel tours. Differing from the typical is the amazing offerings which include; Anegada, The Point (off Land’s End), La Larga, The Blowhole, Twin Dolphins Reef, Chileno Reef, Barco Varado, as well as more remote sites like Gordo Banks, and Cabo Pulmo. Visibility is said to be good year round!
Galeria Corsica is a must stop for any art lover, especially those enthused by figurative and abstract sculptures and paintings. Shown here are internationally renowned masters as well as younger, yet equally as impressive, newer artists.
In all, Cabo is known for it’s vitality, spirit, beauty and nightlife. However, lurking beyond the apparent is a rich and cultural experience open to those who desire it.
