Luxe Life at Land's End: 10 Best Hotels in Los Cabos

Los Cabos specializes in luxurious accommodations that feature soothing spa services and a host of other full-service amenities, ranging from championship golf courses to palapa-shaded infinity pools.

Las Ventanas al Paraíso has long been considered the area's benchmark lodging, but the coastal corridor that connects the cape cities is also home to three other world-class resorts: One&Only Palmilla, and Auberge brand properties Esperanza and Chileno Bay Resort & Residences All four of these ultra-luxe retreats boast privileged settings overlooking the Sea of Cortés, but each has its own individual charms. Las Ventanas offers exquisite attention to detail and fashionable boutiques; Palmilla is known for its private butlers and celebrity chef helmed restaurants; Esperanza claims what is generally considered the top spa in Latin America; and Chileno Bay is proud possessor of a jaw-dropping collection of infinity pools.

The Resort at Pedregal is annually rated as the best hotel in Cabo San Lucas, and like The Towers at Pacifica, offers its exclusive clientele sumptuous accommodations and access to outstanding spa and restaurant experiences, as well as spectacular Pacific Ocean views.
