Los Cabos, Mexico is abuzz with talk of Hollywood elite touching down to the chic new beachfront property by Thompson Hotels, The Cape. The first of its kind in Mexico for the brand, the seductive, contemporary resort boasts, among other things, infinity and salt water pools overlooking the bay and famous El Arco, where the Sea of Cortez meets the Pacific Ocean. With all oceanfront rooms, your guests will feel like VIPs, regardless of celebrity status. Copper-finished tubs, swinging daybeds on the balconies and suites with private plunge pools complete the image. Masculine modern décor is peppered with local artisanal accents, including handmade tiles below your toes. This sexy new destination wedding spot is perfect for a sophisticated (and sand-free) beachfront “I do” as you exchange vows perched above the ocean.

 Just two hours from Los Angeles, touch down and check in to The Cape’s signature Surfer Villa, a perfect place to celebrate for thirty or so guests, complete with its own plunge pool, two stories of living space, private sauna, kitchen and expansive patio for a ceremony or stunning dinner at sunset. For an equally dramatic backdrop (and many more guests), set your nuptials looking out at El Arco from the infinity pool deck before whisking your loved ones off to one of the Thompson’s signature rooftop spaces where you’ll enjoy an al fresco reception overlooking Los Cabos from high in the sky. Eloping? What better than an open-air spa villa and romantic dinner for two with total privacy from the outside world?

 No matter where you celebrate on property, you’ll enjoy the natural soundtrack of waves crashing against the rocks below and an eclectic cuisine paired with inventive craft cocktails from the award-winning resident mixologist, Osvaldo Vazquez. Executive Chef Enrique Olvera describes the menu: “It reflects the feel of The Cape, a mix of modern elements and casual Baja-style. Think housemade tortillas, fresh, locally sourced seafood and craft beer brewed right here in Baja.”

The menu is inventive, the view is spectacular, but the best part about checking into The Cape? The people. The resort may be new, but each staff member will feel like an old friend long before you and your wedding guests check out.
