Cabo San Lucas, on the southern tip of Mexico’s Baja California peninsula, is known for its beaches, water-based activities, outdoor restaurants, numerous bars and nightlife. But not everyone wants to party while on vacation. Only 10 minutes from the hopping downtown on a two and a half mile stretch of white sandy beaches is the peaceful Pueblo Bonito Pacifica Golf & Spa Resort. This adults-only all-inclusive luxury resort and spa is a romantic, peaceful destination that offers full-service amenities and facilities, including five restaurants, a wellness-inspired spa, ocean view accommodations, two swimming pools and beach beds on their private beach. All-inclusive privileges also include daily wellness activities, wine and tequila tasting, and unlimited food and beverage.
The hotel’s surroundings, design and décor are inspired by the four elements.
Aside from the pristine beach, water is represented as a detail in the stones on the floors in the guest rooms; earth inspired the well-manicured grounds, gardens and special courtyards; fire is evident in outdoor fire pits as well as the red-orange fiery sunsets and air is depicted in the tranquil aura of the place and the breezes off the ocean.
The 154 rooms and suites are spread out among six buildings on the property and are nicely appointed. The bathrooms all have separate bathtubs and showers as well as bathrobes.
Every ocean view suite comes with complimentary 24-hour Butler Service to assist guests in every way possible. The butler can manage an in-suite, personalized check-in and orientation, pack and unpack suitcases, have shoes polished and laundry handled or even arrange for an in-suite bubble bath. Butlers will coordinate outside excursions and events as well.
