Three hotels from Los Cabos are part of The Best Resorts in the World by Condé Nast Traveler.
Congratulations to The Resort at Pedregal, Chileno Bay Resort & Residences and Viceroy Los Cabos!
The Resort at Pedregal
The Resort at Pedregal needn’t work too hard to impress—that much is clear from the moment you set foot in the 900-foot torch-lit tunnel entrance and, after snaking through, suddenly find yourself on the heels of the Pacific. Enveloped by short, craggy hills on 24 pristine acres of Baja California beachfront, the upscale spot is practically floating in open waters, and in fact, it’s tricky to distinguish the hotel’s infinity pool from the brilliant blue body of water behind it. The Mediterranean village-inspired enclave has a rustic, serendipitous beach vibe that makes you feel like you just stumbled on the place, and luckily so.
Chileno Bay Resort & Residences, An Auberge Resort
Cabo San Lucas is a town full of resorts that are either too fusty, too fancy, or too family-friendly, but Chileno Bay is the rare option that feels both sophisticated and hip. Follow the throng of weekending thirty-somethings to the resort’s cool open-air restaurant, or to a little taco shack on the beach with an excellent selection of small-batch mezcal.
Viceroy Los Cabos
Opened as Mar Adentro, Viceroy has taken over this stunning Miguel Ángel Aragonés-designed resort that’s just minutes from town (San José del Cabo). Built from glass and concrete, the hotel has six different buildings for guest rooms, all offering unbroken views of the ocean beyond. All rooms feel like a dreamscape, with floor-to-ceiling windows and private outdoor space. Apartments even have rooftop pools. Decor is mostly white, with light wood accents, letting the stunning natural setting speak for itself.
