The first time we went to Cabo, we were celebrating our first anniversary. We were staying at our grandparent’s timeshare, but we managed to find our way to El Restaurante at Las Ventanas for dinner. I will never forget the walk from the lobby down to the main pool. “You will be transported to another universe,” I wrote in one of my very first ever blog posts. That night, we put Las Ventanas at the top of our bucket list for an actual stay, and last October, for our fifteenth wedding anniversary, we finally crossed it off.
What I Love: The sheer luxury of it all—from the room butler to the pool butler, your wish is their command. The hot tub located in the main pool is where you could find me most days with a margarita in hand. The life! The spa, while maybe not as jaw dropping as the brand new Montage spa, offered everything I could want—from outdoor hot tubs and steam rooms to one of the best massages I’ve ever had.
Something to Know: Though the food was incredible (highly recommend El Restaurante), we got sick with a parasite the morning after we returned home. Las Ventanas is one of those places you never have to leave, so we only ate off property twice—two days before we left: once at the Montage and once at Flora Farms. We feel pretty sure it was the poolside Ceviche, but nobody can be sure. Even though you’re in the lap of luxury, you still have to be careful.
Suite Dreams: There are 61 guest suites complete with fireplaces and private patios. Our huge suite was perfectly situated with a private patio in front of the resort pool. I highly recommend booking a poolside suite near the beach pool. For those looking to indulge even further, there are also private villas as well as the Ty Warner Mansion, a 28,000 sq ft. beachfront hideaway that opened in 2016 with panoramic views of the Sea of Cortez.
Cool Factor: Las Ventanas was the first 5 diamond, world class property in Los Cabos purchased by Ty Warner (founder of Beanie Babies) in 2004, and set a new standard for the luxury hotel market world wide.
Hero Shot: Right at sunset looking out at the infinity pool as the lanterns light every path and the sky changes into a watercolor painting of purple and pink.
