Venue Spotlight – 3 Spectacular Luxury Resorts for Destination Events in Los Cabos
Los Cabos has beaches, palm trees and year-round sunshine, but this picturesque municipality on the southernmost rim of the Baja California municipality would still not have become hugely popular for destination events–which it undeniably has–without a host of great event venues. Last month, we surveyed the incredible variety of luxury villas available in cape cities Cabo San Lucas and San José del Cabo. This month, we shift our focus to luxury resorts. Specifically, resorts that have opened within the last two or three years, and thus may not be as familiar to those considering planning destination events in Los Cabos.
Trust us, the new resort venues are worth checking out. Since 2o15, Los Cabos has seen incredible growth, and has welcomed new properties from some of the world’s finest hospitality brands.
The Importance of an Event Planner in Choosing Venues for Destination Events in Los Cabos
Speaking of trust, a trusted and knowledgeable ally is a must for any destination event. Because the simple fact is, if you’re planning an event far from where you live, you’re not going to be as well versed about venues and other planning details as local experts.
Los Cabos based event planners like Creative Destination Events will help tease out your vision for a destination event–be it wedding, dinner party, birthday party, or the like–and based on the type of experience you prefer, make informed recommendations on potential resorts or other venues. We’ll even arrange guided site visits.
And that’s just the beginning. A good planner walks you through every step of the destination event planning process, making what could be stressful the exact opposite; easy and enjoyable.
Now, on with the tour!
Nobu Hotel Los Cabos
What do you get when you partner celebrated Japanese chef Nobu Matsuhisa, Academy Award winning actor Robert De Niro, and producer Meir Teper? The answer is Nobu Hotels, an acclaimed hospitality brand dedicated to fusing architectural elegance and laid-back luxury to provide incredible experiences in some of the world’s most beautiful places.
Nobu’s 200-room property in Los Cabos officially premiered in November 2019, and in addition to a beachfront location on the Pacific Coast of Cabo San Lucas, features a variety of artfully designed spaces perfect for destination events in Los Cabos.
As at many Los Cabos resorts, beachfront sites offer perfect venues for destination wedding ceremonies. But Nobu’s banquet hall, boutique bars and restaurants, and dedicated church/temple also open up a wide range of alternative possibilities when it comes to creative special events. Multicultural events like Indian weddings, for instance, have already been hosted at Nobu Los Cabos, and the resort’s ability to handle larger guest counts puts it in elite company locally.
Chileno Bay Resort & Residences
This stunning boutique property overlooks one of the most beautiful Blue Flag beaches in Los Cabos–Playa Chileno–and like sister property Esperanza Los Cabos, is part of the five-star Auberge Resorts Collection.
The golden sand beach and gently arcing cove with the azure waters of the Sea of Cortez stretching off into the distance is of course at the heart of Chileno Bay Resort’s attraction for “destination events in Los Cabos”, but there are plenty of other spaces to choose from.
The stylish and contemporary Chileno Galleria is perfect for affairs of up to 125 guests, be they for wedding receptions, birthday parties, corporate to-dos, or other special events. The Chileno Terrace, with its eye-catching pergola, can accommodate approximately the same guest count, as can the expansive event lawn which overlooks a three-tiered pool lined with picturesque palm trees. Two more intimate spaces, Galleria Uno and Galleria Dos, can accommodate between 50 to 70 guests, and each opens onto a large ocean view terrace. Then there is La Playita, the beach itself, perfect for destination wedding ceremonies or rustic al fresco receptions.
The one thing they all have in common is state-of-the-art facility services. That, of course, and those breathtaking Sea of Cortez views.
Solaz Resort Los Cabos
Since its opening in 2018, this luxurious beachfront property set in the tourist corridor between Cabo San Lucas and San José del Cabo has wowed guests and visitors alike with it sleek architectural design and decadent upscale amenities (private butlers, anyone?).
For the purposes of Los Cabos destination events, Solaz is notable for both the beauty of its event spaces and their sheer size. The 11,000 square foot Calypso Ocean Front Deck, for instance, is not only objectively jaw-dropping, it offers the ability to conceive and execute truly grand-scale events. Likewise, the 3,400 square foot Cousteau Ballroom, with its elegant furnishings and floor-to-ceiling windows.
The most beautiful event space of all, however, may be the beach itself. Here, framed by flower woven altars and with waves breaking majestically upon a golden shore, couples can stage a truly unforgettable destination wedding ceremony.
Of course, great beachfront spaces are available at almost every luxury resort in Los Cabos. Some look out upon endless vistas of Pacific Ocean or Sea of Cortez, others showcase cinematic rock formations or other features that mark them as not just beautiful, but one-0f-a-kind special.
The goal is to find the site that speaks to you, and provides a stage setting appropriate to the occasion you envision, whether it celebrates love and commitment, personal milestones, or simply the opportunity to spend time with the people in your life that matter most.
Finding exactly the right place may seem daunting, but it’s not. Not if you hire the right event planners.
