In addition, the perfect blend of classic elegance with a touch of Spanish-Mexican Hacienda charm creates an enchanting atmosphere you will find deeply captivating— just like we did!

Everything about The Cape screams sophistication and luxury at its highest level. Along with the sound of the crashing waves (highly praised by guests), this place offers a magical experience in Cabo filled with style and sober elegance. In case you are looking for the perfect place to have a romantic getaway, let me tell you The Cape is the one.

4. Chileno Bay Auberge Resort

Location: The Corridor (Cabo San Lucas side)

Part of the Auberge Collection, this luxury resort is located on Chileno Beach— hence, its name. And here we have to highlight the fact that there are not many swimmable beaches like this one in Cabo (no small thing!).

Chileno Bay Resort is on our Top 5 listing simply because it can offer something different to many other resorts in Cabo: a fresh, laid-back vibe well balanced with a spark of elegance and character.

Why we love it: Unlike Medano Beach, Chileno Bay’s location is blessed with a swimmable beach that is not packed with tourists and spring-breakers, which brings the calmness one needs to enjoy this unique experience in Cabo.

Location: The Corridor (Cabo San Lucas side)

Another jewel with a swimmable beach is Montage Los Cabos. We selected this marvelous-looking resort as an impeccable last proof of ultra-luxe alternatives here in Cabo.

Montage Los Cabos is one of the best resorts in the area for many reasons, but perhaps the best quality to be mentioned here is its spectacular layout, allowing any guest to experience an encounter with a real paradise, we adore everything about this resort.
