Mexico dreaming? Just a short hop from the West coast, Los Cabos is a favorite destination for Hollywood A-listers looking for a quick getaway. Where the tip of the Baja Peninsula divides the Sea of Cortez from the vast Pacific, the resort destination has recently experienced a luxury-hotel construction boom. The latest on the scene, and named to Conde Nast Traveler's 2008 Hot List
, is Cabo Azul
, a beautiful 332-room property which CNT describes as "a well-kept secret"-- "tasteful despite its large scale." You can indulge in pure luxury at the state-of-the-art spa, or partake in massages in private cabanas on the beach. Take a dip in one of three huge pools overlooking the waves; this tri-level infinity pool is also the setting for fire bonfires in the evening. Retire to your villa and appreciate the thoughtful amenities including flat-screen TVs, whirlpool baths, double sinks, and full kitchens. You'll be so smitten with this place, you may even consider tying the knot here. The wedding services are top-notch, with a five-story open-air church set beside candlelit water walls.
