How Mexico's Los Cabos Became a Celebrity Favourite  

June 26, 2023

Ultimate resort-style luxury awaits at ‘Lands End’: discover Los Cabos, where the well-heeled swap paparazzi for palomas. 

Sun-soaked Baja-style casitas, supermodels and movie stars, and views of the Sea of Cortez sparkling like a diamond mirage – this isn’t the set of the new Bond film, this is Los Cabos. From impossibly fresh seafood to private slices of golden beach and wellness retreats offering ancient Mayan-inspired rituals, it’s no mystery why celebrities flock here, where the resorts rival even the most beautiful Hollywood mansions.  

Located at the very tip of Mexico's Baja Peninsula, this glittering haven is blissfully tucked away from reality: and what happens in Cabo, stays in Cabo.

Discover the world’s most glamorous stays here within our Ultra Lux collection.

With an armour of accolades and a celebrity stamp of approval, there’s no hiding the pinnacle of luxury that Chileno Bay Resort & Residences has achieved. Think immaculate Baja-style architecture on Cabo’s most sought-after beach and a 22-acre wellness retreat complete with a Nap Garden. Rooms are sprinkled around two sapphire infinity pools, each boasting sparkling views of the sea. The onsite restaurant is a celebrity favourite, with the indoor-outdoor COMAL serving a contemporary take on Mexican cuisine with a government-endorsed chef at the helm.  

Esperanza, Auberge Resorts Collection, Mexico’s most glamorous private beach resort 

Esperanza, Auberge Resorts Collection has carved out a piece of Cabo’s shoreline specially for its guests, including a discerning celebrity clientele. Each bohemian casita is so close to the shore that the soundtrack of lapping waves may enter your dreams. Follow the string of palm trees through a labyrinth of five shimmering pools, or glimpse the annual whale migration at Whale Point. Adventure through superfood-laden dishes at La Terraza Americana or sip hand-crafted cocktails on the cliffside Cocina del Mar – Cabo’s most spectacular restaurant.
