In Mexico, the tequila and guac are a given but for those looking to indulge in the suite life - we’ve rounded up the resorts that offer next level rooms and and over-the-top treats that have us all grateful calories don’t count on vacation.
Suite Life: While the entire resort is all suite, adults only, guests can opt for Marquis Los Cabos’ enchanting casitas which offer either a garden with a plunge pool or a rooftop pool and sundeck for guests to escape and luxuriate in privacy. In addition, all casitas feature over 1,670 square feet of space with a private bedroom, king bed, luxury linens, as well as a living and dining area, wet bar, and a furnished lounge terrace and two full bathrooms. The adults-only, all-inclusive resort has recently reopened following a $10 million redesign and renovation. The all-suite property overlooks the Sea of Cortés and offers five dining options, as well as a cafe and bar. The 13,000 sq ft Spa Marquis offers guests a holistic experience dedicated to wellness of mind, body and spirit.
Sweet Life: Greet the day with perfectly instagram-able mini donuts at the grab and go, Espresso Cappuccino, or drop into the Sweet Spot for an afternoon pick me where a selection of chocolate goods, bombones awaits. Better yet - nothing beats the heat like a tequila popsicle with frozen flakes of gold leaf inside! The luxe pop is a Premium Clase Azul Tequila — along with pure gold leaf – and is only available upon request with a minimum of 15-days notice.
