The Cape, a Thompson HotelWords by Harmony Walton

Los Cabos, Mexico is abuzz with talk of Hollywood elite touching down on its newest property, The Cape. I just had the chance to land there myself! The seductive, contemporary Mexico resort by Thompson Hotels certainly did not disappoint. It boasts infinity and salt water pools overlooking the bay where the Sea of Cortez meets the Pacific Ocean and heaven meets earth. And, Hollywood royalty or not, your guests will all feel like VIPs with oceanfront rooms, copper-finished tubs in the bedrooms, swinging balcony daybeds and suites with private plunge pools. The sleek, modern décor is peppered with local artisanal accents, including handmade tiles, to make you feel a part of the beautiful culture in Baja. This sexy destination wedding spot is perfect for a sophisticated beachfront “I do” and ideal for a refined weekend away for those bachelor or bachelorette gatherings.
Just two hours from Los Angeles, check in to the Surfer Villa, a great place to celebrate, complete with its own plunge pool, two stories of living space, private sauna, kitchen and expansive wedding or dinner patio. For a larger dramatic backdrop, try the infinity pool deck for your ceremony; then whisk your guests to the signature rooftop space where you’ll enjoy an al fresco reception with views of El Arco. Eloping? What better than an open-air spa villa and romantic private dinner for two to say, “I do?”
No matter where you celebrate, you’ll enjoy the natural soundtrack of waves against the rocks below and an eclectic gourmet cuisine paired with inventive craft cocktails from their award-winning resident mixologist, Osvaldo Vazquez. I highly recommend a visit to the Glass Box bar for a tequila tasting experience and a visit from him during your stay! You’ll be suspended above the property and surrounded by the sea with glass walls on three sides so no sunset could possibly be missed while you sip Mexico’s finest.
The drinks are a delight, the cuisine is special, 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 before you checkout.
