Cabo San Lucas, Mexico
Nobu Hotel Los Cabos
What it is
A 200-room modernist retreat on Baja’s southern point, with infinity pools galore and a Nobu restaurant overlooking sea and sand.
What it isn't
Old Mexico. Nobu’s bones feel more like a Japanese ryokan than a typical Baja resort, with lofted platform beds and slatted wood screens.
What we think
Nobu restaurant obsessives—and there are many, many people who will beeline there in any city they can find—delight in the brand’s perfectionist tendencies, the way it spins tradition into something as fresh as ocean foam. That’s extra evident at Nobu Los Cabos, where the jaw-dropping 13,691-square-foot Asian spa—with a hydrotherapy garden, cabana jacuzzis and treatments like the Citrus Drench body treatment—are only the beginning of chillaxation on-site. Book an aptly named Zen suite for 1044-square-feet of bliss, with Italian stone vanities and a soaking tub in the bathroom, sliding doors onto your terrace, organic cotton linens swathing your pillowy bed, and...oh yes...butler service.
You're here because
You’re obsessed with Nobu, and the fact that the menu here includes dishes like rock shrimp tempura with butter ponzu and short ribs in mole miso for an only-in-Mexico twist.
You like to eat as local as possible, so when you learn about Malibu Farm—the organic second location of Chef Helene Henderson’s SoCal original, right here in Mexico—your heart skips a few beats. Looking at the breakfast menu, you can’t decide between papaya yogurt with seasonal berries or avocado and local smoked bacon egg tacos, so get both. Mexico: you’re a marvel.
