Las Ventanas al Paraíso, a Rosewood Resort
On the dramatic desert coastline of Los Cabos, where sun, sand and sea converge, Las Ventanas al Paraíso, a Rosewood Resort consistently redefines pampering and pleasure with incomparable service and attention to detail. Much admired for its architecture and artistry, this remarkable resort is distinguished by the constant attention to detail and striving for something better. The exquisite design of Las Ventanas creates a uniquely beautiful setting for Los Cabos vacations, and the resort’s approach to landscaping is key to its look and feel. Designed to be in harmony and oneness with the local ambiance, Las Ventanas nestles into the natural slope and contours of the land. The external color scheme reflects the white of the sands and ocean surf.
Viceroy Riviera Maya
The pure white sand and turquoise waters are the first indications: This isn’t just an escape, it’s the definition of enchantment. Viceroy Riviera Maya is a Mexican luxury resort nestled in the rainforest of Riviera Maya near Playa Del Carmen. Here, in the lush and untamed wild, you’ll stay in seclusion in one of 41 private villas where you’ll enjoy your own private plunge pool. Discover complete relaxation and rejuvenation during your nature-filled experience, and find serenity at the full-service spa.
The ecological enclave of Mayakoba, on the Riviera Maya, has a number of glossy resorts—but this one takes the cake. The décor is Insta-worthy (Yucatán limestone and renewable wood fill indoor spaces). The spa is set on its own island overlooking the lagoon (book a Mayan-influenced treatment, like the Cenote Temazcal Purification). The food is deliciously indulgent (order the Pacifico battered shrimp tacos by the pool). And the rooms, outfitted with glass doors and private plunge pools, are so cozy you may never want to leave.
Hotel San Cristóbal
This swanky retreat in Todos Santos, is part of a laid-back surfers’ haven on the Baja Peninsula. It’s conveniently located on the beach at Punta Lobos—adjacent to where local fisherman bring their catch of the day. What does this mean for honeymooners? Legit sea-to-table meals, since the chefs stop by the dock each afternoon to pick the fish that’s served for dinner each night.
This blissful boutique resort is set on the Mayan Riviera’s most beautiful beach and its luxurious main building, the whitewashed three-storey Casa Grande, was built to satisfy the whims of a wealthy duchess and her guests. Today, it stands surrounded by a 30-acre estate, with a collection of luxury suites and villas, all with a private terrace that overlooks either the jungle or the sea. Seamless service, miles of beach, expertly mixed cocktails, a spa, and only the turtles to pip to the post. Oh, and did we mention the clifftop Mayan ruins of Tulum are just half an hour away?
