Dream Destination: Las Ventanas al Paraiso, A Rosewood Resort, Los Cabos
Las Ventanas al Paraiso has been among the world's most heralded properties since it opened in 1997. I feel privileged to have stayed at this outstanding resort and I feel it's time to share this hidden piece of paradise.
A short 2.5 hour direct flight from Los Angeles to San Jose del Cabo and you are in paradise. Las Ventanas al Paraiso appears like an oasis in the middle of a desert, if only it weren't overlooking the sparkling Sea of Cortez. Las Ventanas hugs a wide piece of ocean shoreline between Cabo San Lucas and San Jose del Cabo. Every inch of this resort is furnished with the works of local artisans, each evoking the essence of Mexico's Baja region.
Las Ventanas has no reception desk, rather your smiling personal suite butler meets you with margarita in hand at the entrance and you are whisked away to your suite. There really is no sound reason to leave the cocoon of this hotel, and why would you when you have redefined pampering at the Spa, AAA Five Diamond Award winning on-site restaurants, pools, fitness centre and did I mention the Tequila & Ceviche Bar!
