Las Ventanas al Paraíso, a Rosewood Resort – The name translates to “window to paradise,” which is exactly the feeling you get upon checking into your spacious suite or villa, each with a private patio. The resort takes romance seriously: There’s an entire department dedicated to the art of love. Whether you book a live musical serenade, surprise your spouse by cooking him/her dinner (under the supervision of a talented Las Ventanas chef), or take a sunset horseback ride down the beach, your stay is guaranteed to be unforgettable.
One&Only Palmilla, Los Cabos – There are a few reasons why celebs like Jennifer Anniston and Ryan Seacrest are regulars at Palmilla: The butler service is top-notch, two of the restaurants are helmed by celebrity chef Jean-Georges Vongerichten, and the resort also has direct access to Playa Palmilla, one of Cabo’s few swimming beaches.

The Resort at Pedregal – It’s impossible not to soak in the relaxing honeymoon vibes at a resort where every room and suite features an infinity-edge plunge pool, perfect for daily dips out on your private terrace overlooking the ocean. Other highlights include: treatments inspired by Mexican folk healing at the Luna y Mar spa, the carved-into-the-rocks El Farallón restaurant, and walkable accessibility to downtown Cabo San Lucas, accessed via the hotel’s private tunnel entrance.
Hotel El Ganzo – This unique boutique hotel opened in 2013 and continues to stand out with its artsy offerings. There are in-house artists, performances by world-renowned musicians, and weekly movie nights on the roof. Located at Puerto Los Cabos, the hotel has a rare swimmable beach, two pools (including a rooftop infinity pool), four restaurants, and a spa. Rooms are cool and comfortable and each comes with either an ocean or marina view.

Esperanza, an Auberge Resort – Design-conscious and outdoorsy couples will want to make Espernaza their honeymoon home base, if only for the layout of their room: Each has a wall that can disappear, creating an indoor-outdoor flow onto a private veranda with sweeping views of both the Sea of Cortez and Punta Ballena (“Whale Point,” past which humpbacks migrate in winter). Be sure to make time for various activities at the resort, such as tequila tastings, cooking classes, and fitness classes.
Montage Los Cabos – The newest kid on the block opened summer 2018 with 122 guest rooms and suites, plus 52 furnished residences. Couples can post up on the shores of Santa Maria Bay—a swimmable beach with reefs for snorkeling just beyond—or by one of the three idyllic pools. Unwind at the 40,000-square-foot full-service SpaMontage, or challenge one another to a round of golf on the Fred Couples-designed course. You can also expect healthy eats: The resort has a partnership with celebrity nutritionist Kelly LeVeque, who helped create balanced restaurant dishes using seasonal ingredients—so you can keep that wedding bod going through the honeymoon.
