Destination Safari: Luxury in Los Cabos

Los Cabos, Mexico
Los Cabos, a ritzy enclave of ultra-glam hotels at the southernmost tip of the Baja Penninsula. Boasting a 30% American expat population, the area is best known for its party atmosphere in Cabo San Lucas proper. Los Cabos’ other claim to fame? It’s A-list hotels, known for drawing celebrity clients from Oprah to Clooney and many, many more. An easy flight from Texas and the West Coast, Cabo is a simple connection from many east coast cities, lacks the crime issues of much of the rest of the country and has a strong English-speaking population and good exchange rate. Were we planning an ultra-luxe wedding in Los Cabos, here’s where we’d choose.

Los Cabos’ newest five-star resort by ultra luxe chain Capella features personalized service, a unique cliffside location (accessible only by a private tunnel) and a world-class spa. Many of the rooms feature private plunge pools and all feature spectacular water views. Wedding packages are completely customized, but all include a complimentary honeymoon night each year for the bride and groom on their anniversary.

Perhaps the most famous of all Cabo resorts, the Rosewood hotel’s Las Ventanas is an intimate and romantic setting for a luxury wedding in Los Cabos. We’d host the rehearsal dinner in the hotel’s wine room and the ceremony on one of the rooftop terraces at sunset, surrounded by blazing fire pits. Qualifying weddings earn a honeymoon getaway for two nights at one of the brand’s resorts or hotels, plus a romantic private dinner for two and welcome amenity if one honeymoons at a resort or flowers and champagne on arrival and an en-suite breakfast for two if one honeymoons at a hotel.
We can’t help but love this luxurious Auberge property. A mix between the lush, almost rainforest-y feel of La Palmilla and the stark desert elegance of Las Ventanas or Capella Pedregal, Esperanza offers beautifully-decorated rooms, many with private balconies and plunge pools or hammocks, a world-class spa and some of the area’s best dining. The resort also features an easy selection of honeymoon packages for seven and four-day adventures.
One & Only Palmilla
Part of the One & Only brand, this Los Cabos resort is exceptionally popular with celebrities and it’s no wonder why – the lush, almost Caribbean setting is unique in this arid desert area and the service is top-notch. Enjoy a world-class spa, impeccable dining and much more. It’s also the area’s only luxury resort with an on-site wedding chapel, available just for guest use.
