It’s official: Nobu Hotel Los Cabos is now open. The project, which is the latest addition to the booming Los Cabos luxury hotel scene, brings the Nobu culinary and lifestyle brand to the destination.
The move marks the latest big luxury hotel name to enter Los Cabos. May 2018 saw the debut of both the Montage Los Cabos, set on the destination’s Golden Corridor, as well as the Viceroy Los Cabos. In May, a new Hard Rock hotel is set to open its doors, and in 2021, Accor is planning to open a new property under its SO/ Hotels & Resorts brand.
The signature element of the 200-room beachfront property is a Nobu Restaurant serving Chef Nobu Matsuhisa’s Japanese-Peruvian fusion cuisine, with both indoor and outdoor seating, as well as a bar and a 10-person dining room for private events. The hotel also has an outpost of Malibu Farm, a famous farm-to-table restaurant from Malibu that executives have told us should appeal to the West Coast crowd. A Nobu Café lobby bar, offering light bites and craft cocktails, rounds out the food and beverage venues on property. An on-site culinary garden provides a number of fresh ingredients for the hotel's restaurants and bars.
Accommodations comprise 103 suites and 97 standard rooms drawing design inspiration from the Nobu brand’s Japanese aesthetic. Also on property are a selection of high-end retail outlets and four pools; plus, for golf buffs, the nearby Diamante Cabo San Lucas Resort complex includes courses designed by David Love III and Tiger Woods.
For meetings and events, the property has 14,389 square feet of flexible space spanning 11 venues, including two ballrooms, one boardroom, one pre-function space, one outdoor terrace and two outdoor lawns, with banquet menus drawing inspiration from both the Nobu Restaurant and Malibu Farm. Event planning professionals are able to provide personal assistance for all gatherings, including destination weddings.
Finally, there is a 13,691-square-foot spa with 13 treatment rooms, both indoor hydrotherapy areas and an outdoor hydrotherapy garden and a cabana Jacuzzi. There is also a fitness center with a full range of gym equipment, an indoor/outdoor yoga area and a spinning area.
