Las Ventanas al Paraíso, a Rosewood Resort
For more than 20 years, Las Ventanas al Paraíso, a Rosewood Resort, has gone beyond the expected to deliver unrivalled levels of service and experiences for guests. Today, they are still keeping their promises but with even more treats in store for those on a luxury holiday in Los Cabos and the Baja Peninsula. They serve up a heady cocktail of beautiful hacienda-style influences here, impeccable butler service for everyone, a spa that goes above and beyond to make you feel pampered, and multiple swimming pools. All this, thrown together with an exotic Mexican twist, makes Rosewood Las Ventanas a cut above the rest.
The spoiling begins as you are picked up from Los Cabos Airport and transferred the short 20-minute ride to Las Ventanas, where check-in is streamlined, quick and complemented with a tequila cocktail, just to get you started. No need to worry about luggage either, as your personal butler will do all the unpacking so you can begin relaxing straight away, whether that’s in the spa, by the pool or at one of the restaurants, served by ever-smiling staff. Now you can get your bearings and marvel at the scenery around you; endless Pacific Ocean waters, golden sand and the outline of craggy cliffs in the distance. This is the southernmost tip of Baja California Peninsula, and Rosewood Las Ventanas celebrates its location with injections of brightly coloured art depicting quintessential Mexico, thriving plants and mouth-watering cuisine, encouraging guests to feel a true ‘sense of place’.
The Baja vibe extends to the guestrooms too, their cream, adobe interiors interspersed with a bright vermilion rug or sapphire armchair, gilded mirrors exuding colonial splendour and hand-crafted headboards. Even the entry-level suite is a pleasure palace, with a 300sq ft patio, roaring fireplace and telescope for stargazing. Treats like Bvlgari toiletries, fresh fruit replenished each day and a bathtub come as standard, though higher categories also flaunt Jacuzzis, kitchens, swimming pools, wine cellars, and more. The ultimate retreat is the Ty Warner Mansion though (the tycoon owns Rosewood Las Ventanas), complete with multiple pools, putting green, bar, pool table – the list goes on. What’s more, is an array of indulgent spa treatments to succumb to within Rosewood Las Ventanas’ rooms; aromatherapy burners to prepare before bedtime, a bath menu, and even a bed sheet menu so you can pick your favourite.
Las Ventanas al Paraiso, a Rosewood Resort, could just rest on its laurels with so much eye candy going on, but instead, it chooses to do the opposite. Depending on the time of year, you might get the opportunity to go for a private surfing lesson, savour a delicious dinner in the Oasis grotto, master the art of making tacos at the poolside Taqueria, or participate in a mini-golf tournament. You also couldn’t possibly leave Los Cabos without taking part in the Tequila Sign; a tasting and masterclass in Mexico’s favourite tipple. Afterwards, fill in a questionnaire to find out which tequila is for you; then, every time you order a cocktail at the bar, staff will know which of the 200 labels to use when crafting your drink – seriously impressive stuff.
Whatever you require during your stay at Las Ventanas al Paraiso, your personal butler will make it happen, and if it’s a couple’s break or honeymoon then they’ll consult the hotel’s very own ‘Director of Romance’ to come up with the best possible experiences for the two of you. A separate pool butler is then on-hand with an Evian spritz, sun cream (various SPFs, of course), sorbets and refreshing lemonade, and will take your drink or food order if you so require it.
This is just an overview of the sort of services Rosewood Las Ventanas can provide, before even mentioning the range of swimming pools (a lazy river and cave grotto among them), kids’ club, spa, restaurants, bars and sports facilities. There’s only one way to truly understand all that this hotel has to offer, and that’s by experiencing Las Ventanas al Paraiso first-hand.
