There may not be a shortage of luxury resorts in Cabo but there are only 6 Los Cabos resorts that have been given the prestigious AAA Five Diamond award. There are currently only a total of 26 hotels and resorts in all of Mexico that have been given this coveted award. Even more astonishing, in the entire world, only about 122 hotels have received this high honor, which means Los Cabos is home to 5 percent of them, and we’re going to list them here.
Montage Los Cabos
Montage is located in Cabo San Lucas and is the newest addition to the list of AAA Five Diamond resorts in Los Cabos. The hotel features only 122 well-appointed rooms, suites, and larger casas in addition to the 52 luxurious residences on the breathtaking 39-acre seaside property. There are six fabulous restaurants, a world-class spa, and a beautiful infinity pool overlooking Santa Maria Bay. Montage Los Cabos was added to the list of AAA Five Diamond resorts in 2018.
Esperanza An Auberge Resort
Esperanza is part of the Auberge Resorts Collection and is located in Cabo San Lucas. It is one of the newer additions to the list, receiving its AAA Five Diamond award in 2017. The accommodations at Esperanza are anything but standard, with plenty of room to spread out whether choosing a casita, suite, villa, or hacienda and many come with breathtaking views of the Sea of Cortez. There are four Baja-inspired restaurants on-site and a number of private dining experiences that can be arranged.
Grand Velas Los Cabos
Grand Velas is located almost perfectly in the middle between Cabo San Lucas and San Jose del Cabo. It received its inaugural AAA award in 2017 and has been delighting visitors with its all-inclusive luxury for at least that long. The luxurious all-suite resort features seven different unique dining options, one of which is led by a Head Chef that has earned two Michelin Stars. For relaxation, guests can kick back at the beautiful pool area that’s surrounded by lush greenery and offers amazing views of the Sea of Cortez.
The One&Only Palmilla, located on a cliffside in San Jose del Cabo, has been a AAA Five Diamond resort for eight years and counting since it received its award in 2014. It offers seclusion and luxury fit for a king and incidentally is a very popular retreat among celebrities. The rooms and suites are spacious and provide unbelievable ocean views and the villas are stunning homes away from home. There are four gourmet-class restaurants on-site, including one led by Michelin-starred Chef Jean-Georges Vongerichten.
Waldorf Astoria Los Cabos Pedregal
The name Waldorf Astoria is synonymous with luxury so it’s no surprise that the Cabo San Lucas resort has been a AAA Five Diamond resort since 2012. Not only does it offer the ultimate in luxury throughout the property but the best of the best in every amenity. From the opulent accommodations to the blissful spa and everything in between, no detail has not been thought of. After a long day of relaxation at the luxurious pool complex guests have the choice of dining at one of three superb oceanfront restaurants.
Las Ventanas al Paraiso, A Rosewood Resort
Another popular destination for celebrities, Las Ventanas al Paraiso began delighting guests for many years before it received its initiation into the AAA Five Diamond award club in 2002. Since its debut in 1997 travelers from all over the world have flocked to the San Jose del Cabo resort to enjoy the supreme luxury offered in every aspect of the resort. With some of the most lavish suites in the Mexican Caribbean, a gorgeous property to spend the days lounging in, and five world-class restaurants for dining there’s really no reason to leave the resort after arriving.
A resort doesn’t necessarily have to be awarded the AAA Five Diamond classification to be amazing. It does help in choosing the right resort if true luxury and unrivaled hospitality are what you’re looking for, though, and that is exactly what you’ll find at these six very special resorts.
