Four Seasons Resort and Residences Los Cabos at Costa Palmas has been awarded the coveted Five Diamond designation from AAA. The property is the only luxury resort on the East Cape of Baja with Five Diamonds, and ranks among fewer than half a percent of the more than 27,000 AAA Inspected lodgings.
The East Cape is a region entrenched with a history of discovery and adventure, dating back to the 1940s when acclaimed author John Steinbeck explored the mysterious gulf that lived between Baja California and mainland Mexico for his prolific travel and science diary, The Log from the Sea of Cortez. By the 1950s, the region had become a hidden-in-plain-sight playground for California celebrities and Texas fishermen seeking the infinite landscape and limitless possibilities for untapped adventure.
Today, the spirit of the East Cape remains for guests of Four Seasons Resort and Residences Los Cabos. From guided ATV tours through the desert foothills of the Sierra de la Laguna Mountains, and hiking trips to nearby Sol de Mayo where fresh water cascades over granite boulders to a swimmable waterfall and hot springs, to snorkelling or diving the coastal reefs of Cabo Pulmo Marine Park – a UNESCO Marine Heritage site, to swimming encounters with the ocean’s largest fish, the mystical whale shark, and much more await.
Four Seasons Los Cabos features 141 expansive guest rooms, which includes 23 suites, as well as additional residences and villas available for rent through Four Seasons Private Retreats, that evoke a sense of elemental luxury that favours outdoor living and indigenous landscaping tucked alongside 2 miles (3.2 kilometres) of swimmable beach on the Sea of Cortez.
The award-winning Resort offers 10 unique dining options including world-renowned estiatorio Milos; multiple retail experiences; a sports complex and fitness centre; seven pools; Oasis Spa and Wellness Centre; a teen centre and Kids For All Seasons program; multiple unique indoor/outdoor celebration spaces; and a collection of whole ownership Private Villas and Private Residences for sale.
Four Seasons Los Cabos is the first resort to open within the fifteen hundred-acre (607 hectare) resort community of Costa Palmas, which offers Four Seasons guests and residents a Robert Trent Jones II designed 18-hole golf course and 18-acres (7 hectares) of organic farm and orchards.
“AAA Five Diamond properties represent the very best in global hospitality,” says General Manager Borja Manchado. “On behalf of every incredible member of this special team, we are deeply honoured to join the ranks of the select few who hold this distinction, and even more so, to share this special place with all of our guests.”
