Las Ventanas al Paraiso embraces its desert environment with stunning architecturally landscaped gardens of cacti, aloe vera and succulents that flow down towards the azure Pacific Ocean. The philosophy here is 'if you want it, we will get it for you', and the service is relaxed but exemplary. Suites are extremely spacious and beautifully decorated with hand-picked Mexican furnishings and fabrics, with fabulous beds, fireplaces, dry agave trees and a telescope in every suite for whale watching or night time star gazing.
There are two signature restaurants that champion Mexican cuisine; the Restaurant is an inspired, regionally ordered menu with dishes from the states of Mexico, and the Sea Grill serves the freshest catch as well as simply but expertly grilled meats served up with an ocean view. Meanwhile Arbol delivers exquisite Asian-influenced cuisine using the freshet seafood from the Baja Peninsula.
While you can’t swim in the Pacific Ocean in front of the hotel, the surf is mesmerising to look at from the seven pools on property, and the white sand beach is wide and endless for walks. It also doesn’t mean ocean adventures don’t abound: we can organize adventures from whale watching trips to see humpback whales (Nov-April) to summer time diving, snorkeling on coral reefs in Cabo Pulmo National Park; kayaking and swimming with playful sea lions or with gentle-giants whale sharks (Oct-April); world-renowned sport fishing and beginner to advanced surfing at nearby hot spots Costa Azul or Los Cerritos.
Baja offers a unique combination of culture and nature and Las Ventanas embraces its Baja roots in an elegant, understated way. Its privacy and service make it a favorite, exclusive winter hang-out for the Hollywood a-list, but it is also an excellent choice for families looking for some winter sun where their beach front villas are the most sought after on the coast.
Expansive and richly appointed, all suites have marble showers and Conchuela limestone floors. At the end of the day, share the warmth of a seaside fire and be lulled to rest by the rhythm of gently washing waves. Or, turn your personal telescope toward the heavens to gaze at the shimmering stars.
Many suites and Villas feature - separate bedroom, very large living room, private patio, full kitchen and master bathroom with Jacuzzi bathtub, king/queen sized beds, stunning views of the ocean and the resort landscape, fireplaces and much more.
Beach view and beach front villas with one to three bedrooms offer incredible Pacific views, with full kitchens, entertainment spaces and indoor-outdoor living with stunning private pools and fire-pits. Villas also come with a villa host who will deliver breakfast, make pre-dinner margaritas or watch the children while you dine.
Children are welcome to come and stay at Las Ventanas al Paraiso. There is no children's club as such, but staff can arrange babysitting, kids' activities and nannies are available on request.
The Restaurant serves an inspired Mexican menu, their signature regional dishes to include grilled local Ling Cod fish fillet with cantina-style lentils in a green tomatillo and cilantro sauce, and braised beef ribs in “Pascalito” Sauce, roasted pumpkin seeds, pico de gallo and with homemade tortillas are definitely worth ordering. Delicious food combined with views of the ocean or pool is the recipe for a wonderful evening. The Sea Grill, located at the ocean's edge offers a selection of dishes from grilled fare, to fresh ceviche and shellfish to traditional Mexican tapas. Arbol serves up a menu of asian-inspired dishes, delivered impeccably using freshly sourced seafood, which has been caught locally.
Facilities at Las Ventanas al Paraiso include The Spa at Las Ventanas, a salon, seven swimming pools and a gym. There are also luxury private beach cabanas.
The award-wining The Spa at Las Ventanas allows guests to enjoy indoor and outdoor treatment rooms with private terraces. The luscious vegetation and calming natural décor help you to feel relaxed and renewed. In addition to a large selection of treatments on offer, the spa also has saunas, hot and cold hydrotherapy pools and steam rooms.
If you can drag yourself away from the hotel, signature experiences include shopping for ingredients and cooking with a chef at a local hacienda Barbacoa style. Dine family-style that evening to savour your dishes and enjoy a lively meal (with Mescal paring of course!). The Ultimate Treasure Hunt with off-road Polaris rangers is great fun and will see couples and families (as young as 8 years) racing through the desert canyons and Pacific beaches in search of clues!
Guests can also enjoy water sports including snorkeling, diving, windsurfing and sea kayaking, sport fishing, tennis, marine wildlife expeditions, horseback riding, desert excursions and there are also three private yachts for hire. Whale watching excursions to see giant humpback whales are also available from November through April.
Location & Directions
Los Cabos, Baja California
Situated between San Jose Del Cabo and Cabo San Lucas, at the southern tip of Mexico's Baja Peninsula. Los Cabos combines a starkly beautiful desert landscape with one of the richest marine environments encompassing both the Pacific Ocean and Sea of Cortez.
When to go
Baja California is a rare destination that offers a great getaway year long. Peak time for travel is when weather is temperate in the low 20ºc range and whale watching opportunities are at their best (late November to April). This also includes the festive vacation and New Year period. Cool temperatures are ideal for desert adventures and hiking and boating for wildlife viewing and island exploration. Summer (April to September) can be hot and humid but the beaches are less crowded. Summer waters are ideal for snorkeling and diving. Hurricanes are much less common than in the Caribbean, but it is something to be aware of for September and October travel which is considered low season.
Baja is blessed with two marine life rich oceans; the Sea of Cortez to the east has a warmer sea temperature than the more exposed than the Pacific Ocean to the west. In the summer the breeze coming from the Pacific is a blessing. For those interested in surfing, waves break on the eastern side of the peninsula March to October and on the Pacific west November to March. The most popular summer breaks start in San Jose and extend up to the Eastern Cape making Los Cabos an excellent base.
When planning your visit, it is worth noting the peninsula's main fiestas. Each March San Jose del Cabo throws an 11-day long Fiesta Patronal with parades and carnival and La Paz holds a similar event. Easter is also a busy time for Mexican's heading to the beach.
