Nobu Hotel — Los Cabos, Mexico
The idyllic beachfront of Cabo San Lucas in Mexico is the latest locale to join Nobu Hotel’s growing network of impeccable properties.
Situated at the southern most tip of the Baja Peninsula, the region’s stunning views are just one component of the dreamy resort. Designed by global firm, WATG, Nobu Hotel Los Cabos is the first purpose-built hotel for the brand. Merging Mexican lifestyle with Japanese culture, the resort beautifully blends clean lines with suspended volumes in an intricate variety of finishes, ranging from light wood to black marble polished granite and limestone, to create a multi-textured, surrealistic setting.
From quiet, Japanese-inspired courtyards to stone frames that showcase the ocean views, the resort’s open-plan concept is bolstered by its minimalist, yet contemporary design. The placement of the hotel’s structures has been carefully considered to block the strong Northwest winds, while still maintaining a sense of space and openness. A staggering 18 pools also more than compensates for not being able to in the rough surrounding waters, although the sound of crashing waves is still very much present. The hotel’s tranquil aesthetic permeates its every corner. From the guest rooms, which each evokes a Japanese feel with its uncluttered décor, locally sourced wooden accents and Mexican handcrafted touches, to the resort’s landscaping which nods to Japanese rock gardens while incorporating local Cabo rocks, the aura of balance can be felt throughout the property’s many different areas.
Finished off by a signature restaurant that infuses signature Nobu dishes with a Mexican flavor, as well as an outpost of the popular Malibu Farm – a California-style eatery, the hotel’s vibe is relaxed and casual, yet perfectly appointed – an epitome of modern refinement. §
