There’s no case of “lost in translation” for “Las Ventanas al Paraiso.” These “windows to paradise” overlook a stunning juxtaposition of desert and sea, showcasing panoramas that dutifully define our contemporary definition of “paradise.” Eleven whitewashed, low-rise buildings enveloped by diverse cacti and framed by the most brilliant blue skies and scintillating seascapes, “Las Ventanas” exudes an ambience of far and away storybook romance.
The resort impresses from the onset, with an expansive al fresco lobby opposite the rising tides, hovering over an enclave of inspirational architecture. The artisan floors are composed of contrasting stones, beautifully arranged along the labyrinthine walkways, the ceilings bound by traditional dried, latilla sticks. Bare branches from the Baja thirst lands come to life with hand-blown red and pink glass ornaments, complementing the color-splashed desert foliage rooted deep into the sand. Freestanding, rectangular stairs intersect reflection ponds, leading towards sea-level amenities and outlets like the resort’s fine dining restaurant or the more casual Mexican inspired Sea Grill. Seven distinctive pools surface as resplendent oases, offering varying degrees of privacy and exposition among the all-suite property. Warm and smiling staff surprise at every turn, eager to deliver stellar service that never seems forced or required. Indeed, Las Ventanas’ interpretation and incarnation of luxury is gloriously distinct, bold and beautiful.
In between the thick walls of monochromatic stateliness, Las Ventanas’
71 suites perfectly balance elements of rustic luxury with regional authenticity. Similar to its personality-driven exteriors, the understated interiors pay homage to the flavors of Mexico’s 32 diverse states, cast ashore on a seaside desert. Even the recent spa expansion showcases a multi-faceted example of Mexican craftsmanship, with ornamental glasswork from Oaxaca embellishing an outdoor, traditional Bajan palapa that serves as the spa’s unisex relaxation area. Overall, the resort’s genuine character proves intoxicating.
Over the entirety of its extensive manicured grounds, the Las Ventanas enclave exudes a constant spa-like placidity. The few interruptions to unrepentant “R & R” usually occur poolside or beachside with the hourly offerings of homemade sorbets, water coolers, and other thirst quenching delights. Or perhaps you’ll wake up from a post massage, sun-kissed snooze to a distant horn signaling the presence of whales in the area. Similar to
The One and Only Palmilla, Las Ventanas al Paraiso is superb ground for witnessing the renowned gray whale migration; and regardless of any timely state of self-indulgence, it’s hard to resist one of nature’s most majestic sights. But it’s not just whale eye candy here. Las Ventanas is also a great place for celeb sightings and gawking over the crème de la crème of Hollywood’s gay A-list.
Once you leave the resort, there’s a wealth of things to see and do in Los Cabos. First timers are almost obligated to visit Land’s End, an impressive cluster of rock formations, including the famous Arch of Poseidon, that appears on nearly every postcard of Los Cabos. During high tide, panga boats from either the Marina or from El Medano Beach in Cabo San Lucas offer rides to the Arch; better yet, during low tide, intrepid travelers can get here by foot by way of Lover’s Beach. For some more eye candy head to the Art Walk Exposition on Thursday evenings. The wildly popular Art District in San Jose del Cabo comes to life early evening as dozens of galleries offer patrons complimentary wine and insight to their fabulous displays and works of Mexican and international artists and artisans.
