The Waldorf Astoria Los Cabos Pedregal offers unparalleled respite
Driving through the private torch-lit Dos Mares tunnel to land at Waldorf Astoria’s Los Cabos Pedregal hotel is a truly remarkable way to begin your stay. Carved into Mexico’s Pedregal Mountain, the 115-room, 24-acre property is by far one of the region’s most exclusive destinations, equipped with gourmet restaurants and a full-service spa.
Curated to appeal to all of the senses, guests can immerse themselves in luxurious Mexican design in one of the spacious suites, villas, casitas or private homes. From expansive ocean views to private plunge pools, firepits and more, each room takes full advantage of what Baja has to offer. What sets this hotel apart from the rest is the service. Each guest room is assigned a personal concierge who can assist with anything from food prep to childcare or addressing any essential requests.
Beyond the balconies, guests can enjoy lantern-lined fine dining at El Farallon, the oceanfront restaurant helmed by Executive Chef Gustavo Pinet, which offers cuisine celebrating an ocean-to-table menu. In 2022, the brand announced the expansion of their culinary program with the addition of Agave Study at Peacock Alley, Neutral Coffee Lab, a culture-rich café, and a redesign of the property’s signature restaurant, Don Manuel’s, which spotlights Travesia, a nine-course tasting menu surrounding the beloved taco. “Food and beverage has always been at the forefront of the guest experience at Waldorf Astoria Los Cabos Pedregal,” said Fernando Flores, general manager, Waldorf Astoria Los Cabos Pedregal. “We are incredibly proud of our reinvented culinary program, which provides guests with an immersive and reimagined experience touching all five senses to further root visitors in the destination.”
Save the date for the upcoming Festival of Flavors culinary weekend, happening November 9 to 12 and featuring Chef Enrique Casarrubias, who is the second Mexican chef to obtain a Michelin star in France at his acclaimed restaurant Oxte, which is steps from the Arc de Triomphe in Paris. After pleasing the palate, guests can lose track of time inside Luna y Mar, the hotel’s ocean-view spa. It offers a truly unique program based on ancient Mexican folk healing known as curanderismo, which focuses on holistic practices and treatments. The various therapies honor the lunar phases, aligning one with the rhythms of nature.
Whether you are seeking a deeper connection to nature, a spiritual makeover or simple fun and sun, Waldorf Astoria Los Cabos Pedregal has something for everyone to leave the tunnel feeling refreshed and rejuvenated.
