#3. The Cape, a Thompson Hotel

“A Los Cabos boutique hotel like no other. Imagine a side of Los Cabos you never knew existed, where the soul willingly surrenders to el sol. It’s a fresh and vibrant approach to Los Cabos luxury—a singular beachfront retreat commanding a contour of the cape where every room and vantage point overlooks El Arco and the Bahia Cabo San Lucas horizon. Intuitively interwoven within the natural landscape surrounding the Monuments Beach point break, The Cape is a place to revel in the heat of the moment. The clean, contemporary lines of visionary Mexico City architect Javier Sanchez converge in a relaxed 1960s Southern California-meets-Baja aesthetic at this luxury boutique hotel.

Two pools and a duo of outdoor spa cabanas seemingly spring from the natural rock formations, while the only rooftop lounge in Cabo San Lucas floats six stories above. Set to the pulse of an urban vibe by night, the warm designs by Arquitectura de Interiores’ Marisabel Gómez Vázquez ultimately draw you in, revealing a reflection of Los Cabos like no other.”
