Best Luxury Hotels in Los Cabos

View all Los Cabos Hotels

Plenty of resorts across Los Cabos -- the region on the southernmost tip of Mexico's Baja Peninsula -- claim luxury status. These seven hotels are the rare few that truly deliver on that promise. Take a look at the top luxury hotels in Los Cabos, Mexico. 

  1. The One&Only Palmilla is easily one of the most luxurious resorts not only in Cabo, but in Mexico. Every single feature here has an upscale touch to it, from the wonderful restaurants (including a steak house by Jean-Georges Vongerichten) to the two gorgeous pools, from the velvet-gloved treatment to the stunner of a spa, which is crafted from a seemingly endless amount of stone. The 160 rooms and villas are nothing less than lavish, with contemporary and traditional Mexican accents, massive bathrooms, and high-tech amenities. The included extras -- such as luggage unpacking, daily snacks delivered to rooms, and an aromatherapy turndown menu -- put this resort at the top of our list.

  2. This luxurious resort is one of the nicest in Los Cabos, and offers more of a home-y vibe than other high-end properties in the area. The 123 hacienda-inspired casitas and villas are rustic, bright, and refined, with romantic extras like bathrooms with side-by-side showers and separate soaking tubs. Free baskets of fruit are available, as are Nespresso machine, minibars, large flat-screen TVs with media hubs, free Wi-Fi, and tablets that connect to concierges and porters. The hotel has a gourmet restaurant, an elegant spa and large fitness center, a beautiful main infinity pool, and stunning ocean views available from almost everywhere, though note that the beaches aren't swimmable (an issue throughout Los Cabos). 

  3. The 118-room Resort at Pedregal -- set on a long sweep of beach at the base of towering mountains -- is so exclusive that reaching it requires driving through a private tunnel. The style here seamlessly blends modern design and local artisanal details. Rooms have gorgeous hardwood accents plus massive bathrooms and terraces with hot tubs, and select casitas open to the ocean with private pools and fire pits. Oceanside dining and locally sourced menus are highlights, as are the infinity pools overlooking the beach. There are also an organic spa, a modern gym, and a posh boutique, but sadly, the ocean here isn't swimmable.

  4. True to this high-end brand's reputation, The Cape, a Thompson Hotel is arguably one of the swankiest hotels in Cabo San Lucas. The 161 rooms vary greatly, but all have a sharp look plus luxury amenities including spacious glass-enclosed bathrooms, ocean-view balconies or terraces, in-room cocktail bars, and (optional) private hot tubs. Many include services like butlers and and in-villa check-in. The property has two pools, an excellent surfer’s beach, a world-class Mexican restaurant, and a breathtaking spa, it’s unlikely guests will find much to fuss over. However, the secluded location away from town may dissuade some guests, though that's just what others are looking for. 

  5. This grandiose adult-only resort outside of San Jose del Cabo is practically a destination unto itself. Manicured grounds are sprawling (expect to walk often) and offer great views of the Sea of Cortez, especially from the two pools and golf course. All-inclusive rates are among the highest in the area, even for a luxury hotel, but the six bars and eight restaurants provide guests with plenty of food and drink variety. The 500 suites have modern amenities and playful, romantic touches -- some are swim-out. Most guests are couples, though the resort's conference center also attracts big (and sometimes loud) corporate groups.

  6. Spectacular Sea of Cortez views and some of the best dining in Cabo San Lucas -- Hacienda Beach Club & Residences has a lot going for it. This luxury property's 109 contemporary apartments range from One-Bedroom Residences to Beachfront Villas. For the most part, the property is the definition of tranquility, with a lovely spa, gym, and a bi-level infinity pool with stunning Land's End views. And while the location on Medano Beach is fantastic -- and San Lucas' bustling marina is less than a five-minute walk away -- a bit of noise from party boats in the bay is inevitable. 

  7. Groups with big budgets can stretch out in these pinch-me-now, three-bedroom/three-and-a-half-bathroom cliffside villas overlooking the Pacific Ocean. The luxury development is a few miles outside of Cabo San Lucas within a gated community under the umbrella of Pueblo Bonita, with sister resorts here and closer to town. Montecristo, for its part, offers 151 bi-level houses that can sleep eight guests each. Villas are similar in design with high-end amenities such as infinity pools, gourmet kitchens, and stainless steel Weber grills, to name a few. Guests are granted free access to Montecristo's own facilities, as well as Pueblo Bonito's beach, pools, and restaurants (all-inclusive packages are available). Golfers also have access to the award-winning Quivira golf course. Free shuttle service is provided to key points around the resort and to town, though a car will come in handy.
