This year, the new Nobu Hotel Los Cabos is bringing a world-class contemporary flair to a coastline already revered for its outstanding natural beauty, wildlife and culture. Situated on the idyllic Baja California Sur peninsula, the region of Los Cabos (aka. Cabo) has gone from strength to strength in recent years and is now home to the newest Nobu Hotel – and the group’s first hotel in Mexico.
Nobu Hotel Los Cabos is a structural vision, courtesy of lead architects, Monica Cuervo and Mark Yoshizaki of WATG, and sits resplendent on an idyllic stretch of sand on the southernmost tip of the peninsula. With design nothing short of divine, each of the 200 guest rooms and suites have ocean and resort views and the interiors, handled by Severine Tatangelo of Studio PCH, manage to beautifully execute an aesthetic of contemporary Japanese minimalism using the finest, locally sourced, Mexican stone. Certain categories of rooms and suites come with the bonus of direct, swim-up access to the property’s main pool for their own private oasis.
For those seeking the ultimate in luxury, there are also the one- or two-bedroom Nobu Suites. Boasting a large stone fireplace, separate living room, dining area, full kitchen, 15-foot ceilings, ocean views, and light and airy spaces, it is a luxury-seekers dream. Guests will also have access to four pools, private cabanas, and a spa that spans nearly 13,700 square feet.
A delightful balance of the Japanese style that Nobu is famous for, with a strong sense of its Mexican locality, Nobu Hotel Los Cabos is already attracting a notable group of tastemakers, influencers and style setters. Boasting a chic atmosphere, pearl white sand and glittering pools, the property also suits families due to its low-key, chilled out vibe.
Food wise, it is no surprise that this is an area in which the resort excels. On top of the signature Nobu restaurant, complete with a 10-seat teppanyaki room for private events, the property is also home to an outpost of California’s highly popular Malibu Farm for fresh, organic, and sustainably-sourced farm-to-table cuisine as well as Pacific Restaurant, a fine dining Mexican concept offering traditional taco and mezcal pairings. For a more casual experience guests can enjoy Nobu Café and the pool and beach restaurants and bars. Of course, there is also Nobu in-room dining for guests who desire a more private experience.
When it comes to wellness, the enormous (13,700 square feet) Esencia Wellness spa boasts an extensive list of treatments. Using Natura Bissé products, the spa invites guests to relax and unwind in utterly soothing surroundings. An outdoor hydrotherapy garden includes a water circuit, experiential shower, cabana jacuzzi, outdoor shower, steam and sauna areas and a Watsu treatment pool. The spa includes nine treatment rooms, a salon, indoor hydrotherapy areas and a 3,723sqft fitness facility with an indoor/outdoor area for yoga and spinning.
For the swingers, the resort is surrounded by the world-famous Diamante with golf courses designed by golfing legends, Tiger Woods and Davis Love III. In addition, there is spectacular whale-watching, a mere moment from the shore, as humpback and grey whales are frequently spotted along the shoreline. Guests at Nobu Hotel Los Cabos can be taken out by boat and feel close enough to touch these beautiful creatures – turning a trip away into a cherished, life-long, memory.
What’s more, adventure lovers can venture on a tropical hike through Cabo San Lucas taking in breath-taking views, snorkel, kayak or sail the Cortez Sea on a private catamaran or luxury yacht, or even go on a camel safari trip; perfectly complimented by a Mexican meal and tequila tasting.
Indeed, whatever travellers are seeking on their holiday – for foodies, spa lovers and design aficionados – Nobu Hotels Los Cabos has made a rather spectacular debut and promises to deliver something that is nothing short of extraordinary.
