Cabo San Lucas, Mexico
This Forbes Five-Star property offers celebrity treatment to guests (who sometimes include Leonardo DiCaprio and Jennifer Aniston) at every turn. The 57-room resort lies perched on a hillside just 15 minutes from downtown Cabo San Lucas and emerged from a top-to-bottom revamp in 2014 looking better than ever. Major features such as the multi-tiered oceanfront pool, palapa-topped spa and cliffside Cocina del Mar restaurant remain largely unchanged after 2014’s Hurricane Odile.
Four different types of suites are offered, but they all offer plenty of space and privacy, beginning at 950 square feet. All rooms feature splashy décor such as Mexican-style furnishings, Frette linens, walk-in closets, massive bathrooms with dual-head showers, and balcony-set Jacuzzis or terrace hammocks. The onsite spa is known as one of the region’s finest, featuring locally inspired treatments such as a soothing Aloe Glaze Skin Soother wrap and creamy coconut baths.
While the cliffside resort doesn’t provide the finest ocean access, guests will be troubled to move away from the pool where staffers offer citrus-infused water, towels, and gratis foot and neck massages amidst the satisfying crash of ocean waves against the rocks. The much-loved Cocina del Mar offers a beautiful backdrop to enjoy seafood-driven dishes highlighting the local bounty in a tasting menu format. There’s also a more casual outdoor ceviche bar and two other onsite dining options serving lighter American fare and casual Mexican eats like lobster fajitas
