Suite Dreams: 10Best Luxury Hotels in Los Cabos

In Cabo San Lucas, resorts not only distinguish themselves with stylish suites, but with soothing spas, first-class onsite dining options, and easy access to the region's many world-class golf courses.

The ultra-luxury Resort at Pedregal–formerly known as Capella Pedregal–is now the standard bearer for fashionable accommodations and detail-oriented service in Cabo San Lucas. The landmark Pacific Coast lodging opened in 2008 in the Land's End city’s exclusive hillside Pedregal neighborhood, and has been wowing guests ever since with sumptuous ocean view rooms and suites, spectacular cliffside wining and dining at the market-style seafood restaurant El Farallon, and revitalizing treatments at onsite spa Luna y Mar.

Co-favorite One&Only Palmilla has been a benchmark Los Cabos lodging for over fifty years, since pioneer developer Rod Rodriguez opened it as one of Baja California Sur's first fly-in fishing resorts.That was in 1956, before the Transpeninsular Highway had been built, and the region was a playground for Hollywood actors and big-game anglers. Today, the grand dame resort is an oasis of gracious living, with flawlessly sculpted grounds, five-star dining facilities, and a Jack Nicklaus designed golf course that has been rated among the world's best.

The region´s most exciting new luxury property is The Cape, a sleek, modernistic Thompson hotel set on famed surf beach Playa Monumentos in the tourist corridor that connects the cape cities. Each of The Cape’s 161 surfer chic studded rooms and suites offers breathtaking views of the granitic rock formations at Land’s End, and the boutique beachfront hotel is also home to Manta, the first Los Cabos project from celebrated Mexican chef Enrique Olvera.
