TRAVEL

FOUR SEASONS, LOS CABOS, COSTA PALMAS

The low-lying five-star 1,000-acre community adding a new dimension of luxury to the 2-mile stretch of pristine beachfront.

Set against the backdrop of the Sierra de la Laguna Mountains (so lush), you’ll be forgiven for thinking you’d stepped off the face of the Earth and into some kind of magical mirage. All within four hours of LA.

Journey up the dirt road of the untamed East Cape and discover a sprawling masterpiece bowing to the surrounding showpiece that is Mother Nature. Created by Brooklyn-bass glass architect, retreat into the distance and watch the building almost disappear. An effect designed to tread lightly on the family of palo blancas, sea grapes, torotes, palms and other, fellow native plants surrounding.

Four Seasons’ sensational collection of Private Residences and Villas awaits – your temporary five-star home on the sea of dreams – and one of 141 rooms including 23 suites with a view of Sea Cortéz. Finished with the obligatory trimmings of a classic Four Seasons,’ expect travertine flooring and carved ceramic walls; an elevated canvas for considered art and natural-dye textiles (sourced from Mexico City and Guadalajara) to hero the heritage of the site. The all over vibe is cool and coastal with that Mexican soul. Tick.

If the half-mile of Four Seasons’ exclusive beach isn’t your vibe, then set off in search of one of six pools (two so hidden, you’ll need local intel on their whereabouts).

Get settled and head down to one of five restaurants. You’ll find expert, Greek-inspired seafood and an intimate lunch-only spot with its very own ceviche counter. Next, Limón, the hero harvester of onsite organic orchards and farms, alfresco style.

If the half-mile of Four Seasons’ exclusive beach isn’t your vibe, then set off in search of one of six pools (two so hidden, you’ll need local intel on their whereabouts). Kickback, accept a towel and the offer of a traditional margarita.

Like a side of adventure with your travels? Hike through Sol de Mayo, wind down a natural waterslide, snorkel alongside sea lions (in an UNESCO listed area in Cabo Pulmo).

What annual getaway dreams are made of. But for now, we wait.
