Choosing the ideal destination for a wedding is a crucial decision that impacts not just you, but your guests. One place that is a fan favorite here at Destination I Do is Los Cabos, Mexico. There are so many wonderful vendors there to make your dream wedding a reality and the destination is truly magical. With the sparkling ocean filled with frolicking wildlife, delectable cuisine, and a multitude of new luxury resorts opening all the time, Los Cabos is a highly sought-after area for celebrations for good reason.

One recent visit led us to Grand Velas Los Cabos, an excellent choice for couples seeking a luxurious destination wedding experience. This upscale resort offers a range of benefits, including all-inclusive programs, diverse wedding venues, and the allure of the destination itself.

TIP: If you’re looking for a luxury all-inclusive without the kids, the newly opened Grand Velas Boutique Los Cabos offers the same level of luxury but is adults-only and directly next door. It also allows you to enjoy the restaurants for dinner at Grand Velas Los Cabos when you want to venture out.

Not Your Everyday All-Inclusive

Grand Velas Los Cabos prides itself on providing a hassle-free and inclusive experience for its guests. Opting for an all-inclusive program not only simplifies the planning process but also ensures that every detail is taken care of, allowing you to focus on your wedding weekend. The resort’s comprehensive packages encompass accommodations, meals, beverages, and even some recreational activities, alleviating the stress of budgeting and planning. The resort offers everything from yoga classes, fitness classes and even kid’s clubs for your smaller guests.

The all-inclusive programs at Grand Velas Los Cabos extend beyond the basics, featuring high-end amenities and services that elevate the overall wedding experience. Our own experience had servers swimming up with light bites and refreshing cocktails by the pool, a fresh churro cart that served up this iconic melt-in-your-mouth classic treat and the most friendly and attentive staff I’ve come across in a long time. With a 3:1 ratio of staff to guests, there’s no surprise the experience is second-to-none.

Spacious Rooms & Suites

Grand Velas Los Cabos offers an array of accommodations that redefine luxury. Their spacious suites boast private plunge pools overlooking the ocean, oversized jacuzzi tubs, butler service, plus king-sized beds and showers that open up to the outside.

The resort’s suites are a testament to opulence, ranging from 1,180 to 1,377 square feet of decadent decor and modern design. These expansive living spaces feature private terraces that overlook the mesmerizing Sea of Cortez, providing guests with a panoramic vista of the stunning surroundings. Rooms come complete with binoculars to whale watch as you lounge in luxury.

Wedding Venues with Views

One of the standout features of Grand Velas Los Cabos is its myriad of breathtaking wedding venues. Couples can choose from a variety of settings, each offering a unique ambiance to suit their preferences. The beachfront ceremony locations such as Azul Beach or Velas 10 Beach provide a picturesque backdrop of the Sea of Cortez, creating a serene and romantic atmosphere steps from the shore.

For those desiring an indoor celebration, the resort offers elegant ballrooms with modern décor perfect for after-parties or large groups. And for something outdoors, but not on the sand, Terraza del Mar (seats up to 600) or Azul Garden is an ideal compromise.

Additionally, the resort’s expert wedding planning team collaborates closely with you to customize every aspect of your ceremony and reception. This personalized approach allows for your individual touches to be front and center to your unique style and vision.

The Ultimate Spa Experience

Awarded by Forbes as an “aquatic paradise,” SE Spa at Grand Velas Los Cabos is exactly that. Led through an 80-minute water journey by your own personal spa valet, you’ll experience all this 35,000-square-foot luxury spa has to offer. You’ll go from a hot steam room to an ice den onto a mud bath all the while drinking elixirs and tonics meant to cleanse your body and rejuvenate your cells from head to toe.

Before your signature treatment even begins, you’ll have relaxed every inch of your body just in the seven steps of your water ceremony. Many people who have enjoyed the SE Spa say it was the highlight of their visit. After mine, I can say without a doubt, that it was transcendent.

Delectable Dining

Select from one of seven restaurants on-site and your tastebuds will be wowed and every craving satisfied. One major standout on the property is Cocina De Autor – an immersive dining experience led by two Michelin Star Head Chef Sidney Schutte that will surprise and delight you at every turn. Their eight and ten-course tasting menus are paired with the finest wines from regions all over the world.

Every restaurant at Grand Velas Los Cabos offers something both you and your guests will enjoy. From more contemporary Mexican cuisine at Frida to Italian and Mediterranean fare at Lucca, the dishes are divine.

The Destination of Los Cabos

Los Cabos, situated at the southern tip of the Baja California Peninsula, is renowned for its stunning landscapes and vibrant culture. Grand Velas Los Cabos takes advantage of this backdrop, offering wedding guests an opportunity to explore and immerse themselves in the beauty of the destination.

The resort’s proximity to landmarks such as El Arco and Lover’s Beach provides you and your guests with the chance to experience the natural wonders of the region. Furthermore, the vibrant town of Cabo San Lucas, with its lively atmosphere and authentic Mexican charm, is easily accessible, allowing your wedding guests to partake in local culture and entertainment.

Grand Velas Los Cabos stands out as an obvious choice for couples seeking a destination wedding that seamlessly combines luxury, convenience, and the allure of a stunning locale. With the enchanting destination of Los Cabos as a backdrop, you can create lasting memories in a setting that perfectly complements the beginning of your journey together.
