Located at the most Southern point of the Baja California Peninsula, stretching down from America’s East Coast, Los Cabos is surrounded by both the Sea of Cortes and the Pacific Ocean. It’s a really unique mixed landscape of desert, stunning beaches and scenic mountainous zones so whether you want a taste of traditional Mexican charm, adventure or a luxury resort stay, there is something to tempt all travellers.
Los Cabos is a renowned celebrity hot spot in Mexico. Being only a stone’s throw away from America, there are so many Hollywood stars that jet in such as Leonardo DiCaprio, Jennifer Aniston and Robert De Niro. It might have been less on our radar here in the UK but with direct flights from London recently launching, it has been getting a lot of well deserved attention.
When we stepped off the plane, considering it was November, it was a warm 26 degrees and a world away from the London chill we left behind – bliss! The weather stays warm throughout the year so if you want a super hot getaway in the summer or winter sun, Los Cabos guarantees that year-round summer glow. After a quick 45-minute drive from the airport in luxury transport arranged by the hotel, we arrived at the stunning new hotel, Nobu Los Cabos.
On entering the hotel resort, I was in awe. The combination of clean Japanese interior lines and the Mexican sea in sight had this instant healing influence wash over me. It was immediately clear to see the beautiful fusion of Japanese and local Mexican design. This is the case of all Nobu hotels around the world to ensure each Nobu hotel destination reflects local authenticity.
We were shown to our room by our private butler who exchanged numbers with us to ensure if ever we needed anything during our stay, she was only a quick call away – very slick. If I could describe the room in one word it would be ‘zen’. With neutral shades and wooden furniture highlighting the Japanese influence, it was incredibly calming. The room had electronic curtains which opened out to your own private terrace with sun loungers and your own private pool for the ultimate relaxation. The bathroom was a personal favourite of mine, it was incredibly unique with floor to ceiling marble walls, a beautiful pebble designed splash wall and stunning traditional Japanese Onsen Teak wooden bath. There was a rain shower so you truly felt as if you were stepping into a natural oasis. Japanese style evolves around clean and uncluttered living, holding tightly to balance, it was very clear to see that natural beauty was core to the design here at Nobu Los Cabos.
