Moving freely around the world is not yet an absolute reality. Many borders remain closed to tourism and many countries request a Covid-19 test and a two-week quarantine. But, some paradises are already beginning to open cracks for those who venture out of isolation, such as Mexico. Want to know the most exclusive corner of the country? The west coast. And do you want to know where to stay in style? At the fantastic Las Ventanas al Paraíso, in Los Cabos, on the Gulf of California.
Think of an impeccable and surprising hotel in terms of pampering, accommodation, connection with culture, gastronomy, natural beauty and service. Yes. All of this, in one place, which serves as Las Ventanas al Paraiso. The name cannot translate more perfectly what is to come, the hotel opens a real window on Mexico’s most secret paradise. Las Ventanas is one of those hotels that alone justify the trip, be it a romantic trip, with small children or even with your pet. Yes, it is pure luxury and it is pet friendly.
Welcome drinks and many kindnesses accompany the experience from the first minute at the hotel until the farewell. Always with great discretion. You hardly even notice the presence of the staff, but when you least expect it, someone comes up with a spray of thermal water to refresh your face or to clean your glasses, with an ice bucket full of little bottles of water, with a menu of books, and so on… This is not an exaggeration, nor my perception alone, Las Ventanas gained fame for reinventing the concept of luxury service in the hospitality industry.
There are 71 immense accommodations, with tremendous privacy, facing the sea, with super neat Mexican decor and handicrafts produced by artisans in the region. Ah, it is worth remembering that check in is done by “your butler”, in the apartment itself, since long before the pandemic.
The heated infinity pool is the hotel’s highest point, as are the spa and restaurants. I ate the best ceviche of my life. Really, unforgettable. It is also worth trying the drinks made with tequila.
The sea of Cortez that bathes the hotel is not the friendliest. It has a lot of current. But, who needs to enter the sea when they have so many possibilities to live? In fact, by car, you can quickly reach quiet beaches like Playa Chilena and Santa Maria.
Las Ventanas al Paraiso, Rosewood Resort is one of those places to live a magical moment. Suffice it to say that it has earned 5 stars from the acclaimed Forbes Travel Guide for the past five years running. So, don’t waste time and take the tip!
XoXo and see you next Tuesday.
