Set on the beautiful (and swimmable!) Santa Maria Bay, the Montage Los Cabos is a stunning newcomer to Baja California. This luxury beach resort is designed in a contemporary and chic Mexican style, with a zen feeling throughout.
Los Cabos offers many luxury hotels, so I wasn’t sure what to expect when visiting the new Montage Los Cabos. Trust me: you’ll be blown away. The landscape is designed to feel refined but natural, with smooth stone and a fiery plaque to announce your arrival to the resort. By the time you pass the security gates, the front desk staff is already prepared with welcome drinks, cool towels, and your room ready – though with the stunning views from the lobby, we won’t blame you if you linger a while before moving on.
First, the rooms (though they’re all practically suites!). Think desert chic room design, combining clean lines with local woods and art pieces. The ambiance feels residential and luxurious, exactly what you want when needing some R&R! The cherry on top? A lavish bathroom with its outdoor shower and deep soaking tub – perfect for reading a book with a margarita in hand.
While the rooms are lovely, the rest of the resort is equally luxurious and relaxing in design. Looking to get some sun? Pick from three palm-lined pools overlooking the ocean, or lounge in the adults-only spa pool. And don’t worry about dozing off – the attentive staff will move your umbrella to make sure you don’t sunburn. How’s that for service? Alternatively, take a dip in the beautiful Santa Maria Bay, one of the few swimmable beaches in the area.
Then, there’s the 40,000-square-foot Spa Montage, complete with steam rooms, jetted hot tubs, and cold plunge pools. Following a busy day spent snorkeling, paddle boarding, and sun bathing, enjoy one of the many treatments designed with indigenous ingredients and a holistic approach to health.
While margaritas may be the “order du jour”, set aside time to do a Mezcal Tasting with the head bartender. Mezcal is an agave-based liquor like tequila, but with a characteristically smoky taste. Feeling adventurous? Pair your mezcal with crunchy fried chapulines, a salty bar snack better known as crickets!
