Las Ventanas al Paraiso - Luxury with a view
Las Ventanas al Paraiso (Windows to Paradise) brings another level of luxury to the tip of Baja California Peninsula. Opened summer 1997, this exclusive resort touts itself as "premier five-star property in Los Cabos". Operated by Rosewood Hotels and Resorts, the hotel companys tradition of excellence is evident in its attention to detail, devotion to style and understated elegance.
The resort blends into its dramatic location. The Mexican-Mediterranean style architecture hugs the upward slope of the terrain; the color schemes are of sand and earthy pastels; and the landscaping uses local boulders, rocks, trees and plants.
Throughout the property there is an unrelenting attention to detail, from latilla screens over the suite patios for soft, filtered sunlight, to the craftsmanship, evident in carved cedar doors and authentic Mexican inlaid pebble "carpets", where the stones form mosaic-like patterns.
Spa pampering, golf and deep-sea fishing draw and upscale clientele. "The Spa at Las Ventanas is the first world-class spa in Cabo" according to Angel Stewart, spa director. "It is used by 70 percent of the resort guests." The spa offers massages, facials and detoxifying and exfoliating treatments. Unique features are open-air massage room and the "Sea and Stars" couples massage, and 80-minute, in-suite massage for two.
According to managing director, in 1998 the spa will be expanded, tennis and squash courts will be added, and 10 more suites will be built.
More than 50% of the clientele hails from California, followed by Texas, New York, Chicago and Phoenix. Internationally, Germany and England are the leaders. The resort is popular with celebrities because of its proximity to Hollywood and its emphasis on privacy.
Typically, guests are in their mid-40s, primarily couples looking for a romantic getaway. The resort does not accept children under 8 between December 20-April 30.
