Forbes magazine’s online version came out with a list of the world’s hotels that feature the best terraces for outdoor dining. Along with options in the French and Swiss alps or views of Greek ruins from a restaurant terrance Forbes listed the Waldorf Astoria in Los Cabos as one of the 5 hotels with the best terraces for outdoor dining. The list’s selection process is said to contemplate both the view that guests of the resort will get while sitting at these outdoor terraces, and at the same time, the food that is served at the facility
What Guests Can Expect To Experience At The Waldorf Astoria in Los Cabos
The Waldorf Astoria resort in the high end region of El Pedregal in Los Cabos is one of the newest resorts in Cabo. It opened its doors in the final months of 2019. After going through the pandemic years the resort is basically reopening, in a sense, and allowing guests to experience the different things that it has to offer.
According to Forbes one of the main things that led them to include this resort on their list was the majestic views that the resort has to the Pacific Ocean. The Waldorf Astoria in Los Cabos sits atop a cliff that overlooks the Pacific Ocean. Forbes points out that guests of the resort don’t even have to head out to the on location restaurants to enjoy the view. Many of the suites that the resort features have their own terrance with the same great views of where the Mexican Pacific meets the Sea of Cortez. The article implies that you can potentially do whale watching from the comfort of the resort saying,
“From January to March, the Baja Peninsula, which separates the Sea of Cortez and the Pacific, provides perfect conditions for whale breeding—and whale watching. The Waldorf Astoria’s cliffside and beachfront suites have individual terraces for your own private viewing session.”
The Dining Options That Complement The View
At the Waldorf Astoria the dining options certainly compliment the view. Forbes named two of the restaurants on property which were El Farallon, and Don Manuel’s. However, the resort actually features multiple dining facilities including its famous Champagne Terrace which is located right next to El Farallon.
If you want an overhead view of the Sea of Cortez while sipping on champagne or eating gourmet fresh caught seafood these two venues are your top options for dinner and a view in Los Cabos. The terrace sits atop a cliff that overlooks the private El Pedregal beach. These two areas are only open for dinner from 5 pm until closing. The operating hours allow the Cabo sunset to make for a perfect backdrop to a romantic “candle light” dinner at the resort.
Don Manuel’s which is the other dining option that Forbes mentions provides a completely different experience for guests. For one the terrace is located at beach level. You don’t get the overhead view of the other two options, but if you really want to feel the breeze from the waves this is the place to be. On the culinary side of things Don Manuel’s is essentially the go to spot for hotel guests no matter what hour in the day they may get hungry.
The kitchen opens its doors at 7am serving typical mexican breakfast dishes, in many cases with a modern twist. Although the menu does feature local seafood dishes, Don Manuel’s is more of the Waldorf’s traditional mexican food culinary option. Although these restaurants are located within the Waldorf Astoria resort grounds both locals and tourists that are not resort guests can book a table through the official site of the resort. Giving themselves a chance to experience what Forbes says is one of the best terraces for outdoor dining.
