Mexico All-Inclusive Report: Los Cabos

Riu Palace Baja California
The Riu Palace Baja California

It may be known among jet setters for its EP hotels, including the newly opened Nobu Hotel Los Cabos, but there are plenty of all-inclusives popping up in Los Cabos

Le Blanc Spa Resort Los Cabos is just under a year old, and it brings some significant culinary experiences to the destination. Most notable is the resort’s signature restaurant, Lumiere, where guests can take in a seven-course French fusion tasting menu. Many of the seven other restaurants on property also have an international flair: Blan International, Blanc Italia, Blanc Asia, Blanc Pizza, Blanc Ocean, Blanc Cafe and Mezze. In terms of amenities, guests can take advantage of personal butler service, nightly aromatherapy, a pillow menu, CHI-branded blow dryers and flatirons, BVLGARI personal products and an array of luxury bath salts in every room. Elsewhere at the resort, they can check out a full-service spa with 25 treatment rooms and a hydrotherapy facility, a fitness and wellness center, juice bars and four plunge pools. Good to know: To celebrate its one-year anniversary, through April 27 the resort is offering a $500 air credit promotion that is combinable with its popular $1,500 resort credit. 

In December, Riu opened the Riu Palace Baja California, marking the company’s third hotel in Los Cabos. The newbuild hotel shares the “public spaces on top” design concept with the company’s new property in Costa Mujeres, and it has 602 guestrooms, 32 of which have also been elevated and 82 of which have sea views. All rooms have 24-hour room service, free Wi-Fi, a complete spirits dispenser and a minibar. The resort is adults-only, with a number of romantic amenities aimed at couples: a welcome cava cocktail, bathrobes in the bedrooms and the option to book a candlelit dinner on the beach. There are also four pools, two with swim-up bars, and a number of dining venues: the Promenade main restaurant; the Indian Taj Mahal; the Japanese Yu Hi; the Italian Sofia; the Guacamole steakhouse; the fusion Krystal; and the grill Pepe’s Food. Rounding out the food and beverage options are a lounge bar and a patisserie and ice cream parlor called Capuchino. Other amenities include a Renova Spa and two fully equipped conference rooms for meetings and events. The hotel is located in El Médano, along with RIU’s two other hotels in Baja California: the Riu Palace Cabo San Lucas and the Riu Santa Fe, the latter of which hosts pool parties that guests at the new resort can attend for free.
