AAs I stretch out on the beach, I find myself trying to jog my memory from high school Spanish class so that I can say “great outdoors”. Perched on a chair on a large white sand beach, there is little noise except crashing ocean waves.
There is no blaring bar music. No roaring cruise ships or flaming jet skis. No beach chair gibberish neighbor. The only hint of sounds to hear other than nature is an attentive waiter whispering that my fresh margarita and ceviche have arrived.
Welcome to the world of the Four Seasons Resort Los Cabos in Costa Palmas. As my husband and I basked in the pristine seclusion of the beach, we realized we were on the perfect relaxing getaway.
The two-year-old Four Seasons outpost is the first hotel in the community of Costa Palmas, which sits in a quiet area on Baja’s Eastern Cape, about an hour from the hustle and bustle of Cabo San Lucas. This part of Mexico offers a remote setting for those who want to escape reality with the one they love.
The beachfront resort overlooking the sparkling Sea of ââCortez is the perfect setting for a relaxing, finger-less trip that has the power to totally recharge your state of mind. With state-of-the-art accommodations, culinary wonders and bespoke adventures, this new resort is a couples’ paradise.
By Four Seasons standards, this Los Cabos resort puts luxury details and personalized service first. This means sleek contemporary design in architecture and decor, including huge suites packed with lavish perks, starting with ocean views. The bedrooms feature sizable living spaces and bathrooms fitted with soaking tubs, rainfall showers, and comfy bathrobes.
Some rooms include spacious patios, often with plunge pools and outdoor showers. The guy obsessed with the Pineapple Suite in White lotus would be happy.
But you’re not limited to your bedroom pool. Six expansive pools are scattered around the quiet property, giving the Four Seasons Costa Palmas a uncrowded feel even when the hotel is at full capacity. The poolside loungers can enjoy refreshments like fresh ceviche and freshly cracked coconut water while soaking up the sun.
The food power of the Four Seasons Costa Palmas
The dining options at the Four Seasons Costa Palmas set the stage – and the menu – for memorable romantic meals. The hotel’s beachfront restaurant, nicknamed Estiatoria Milos, is run by celebrity chef Costas Spiliadis, who has received major accolades for his freshly caught seafood with Mediterranean flavors. Once diners are encouraged to hand-select their fresh catch, the pastel cotton candy sunset puts on a show during the tantalizing feast.
Set under the twinkling bistro lights and lemon trees, the charming LimÃ³n offers a farm-to-table experience in paradise. This outdoor dining wonderland can even set the stage for an in-depth conversation with your loved one.
Of course, a relaxing getaway wouldn’t be complete without a spa, and the Four Seasons Costa Palmas has the secret ingredients. The finely curated services of the hotel’s Oasis Spa are aimed at couples who wish to relax together. There are 10 free-standing treatment rooms ideal for joint treatments.
After a treatment, couples are invited to enjoy an adjacent private garden and swimming pool in the private refuge with champagne, chocolate covered strawberries and cold meats provided. Talk about romantic.
For couples who wish to explore, the resort offers easy access to the nature of Cape Town. In addition to the Robert Trent Jones II designed golf course, which is part of the exclusive Costa Palmas Golf Club, there are mountain bike rides along the nearby desert sand dunes for a wilder nature experience. .
Slower excursions – including wine and agave tastings, hikes to hidden waterfalls, and oceanfront boat cruises – can add to the sense of romance.
It’s tranquility – with many luxury perks – at its best.
