When you’re dashing between El Arco, whale watching tours and sunset margaritas, having a personal space in which to rejuvenate is vital. Cabo San Lucas’s villas offer that and a whole lot more. From independent homes with infinity pools to private villas on beachside resorts, here’s are pick of the best places to stay, bookable on Culture Trip.
The exclusive, gated community of Montecristo Villas sits within an enclave of opulence known as Quivira Los Cabos. Its 1,850 acres (750ha) of coastal real estate await to entertain, pamper and indulge. Villa guests have access to the pools and spas of two nearby resorts and a Jack Nicklaus-designed ocean-view golf course. The exclusive Quivira shopping mall has The Market, a dining outlet inspired by the food halls of Europe. Villas are individually owned so interiors vary, but all are reliably impressive, as are the infinity pools and views from the outdoor jacuzzis.
Ideal for families, this three-and-a-half star accommodation sleeps eight in four smart bedrooms. The poolside views from the villa’s private terrace stretch over rooftops to the ocean beyond. A full-sized kitchen is impressively appointed, while soft robes and marble bathrooms add a little extra luxury. Daily housekeeping is an extra, as is a nightly turn-down service. For the young and young at heart, the complex has a water park of the snaking slide variety.
Residence has a suitably upmarket ring to it. This wow-inducing set up, where Mexican tradition meets modern luxury, is set in a community of individually designed villas and houses all walkable to central Cabo. We’re talking wrought iron spiral staircases, original artworks, sumptuous furnishings, private pools, swim-up bars and fire pits on the patio. Natural stone terraces, grand fountains and tropical plants give a sophisticated air to a complex providing top-notch hotel standards with all the privacy you need.
This low-rise block of villas built on the rocky hills above Cabo San Lucas enjoys spectacular views across the city to the ocean. The two- or three-bedroom apartments come with private dipping pools, which jut out from the balcony. Head there to cool off with champagne in hand after a day in the balmy Baja sunshine. The villas are smart with muted tones.
A four-star villa straddling the two halves of Los Cabos, Cabo San Lucas and San Jose del Cabo, Villa Oceano is ideally located. Credit vouchers for local activities are part of the package as is a free airport transfer, dedicated concierge and, not forgetting, a margarita upon arrival. This charming duplex, which can be rented as a two- or four-bedroom unit, has a private pool with views of the sun-shimmered Sea of Cortez. Take a few steps from the villa and onto the beach to feel the soft sands between your toes.
Haven’t found your ideal stay in Cabo San Lucas yet? You could book one of the city’s best Airbnbs, or if you’re after something different, head to one of the great resorts in nearby San José del Cabo, all bookable on Culture Trip.
