Las Ventanas al Paraíso

A Window To Paradise, This Luxurious Gem On Mexico's Baja Peninsula Welcomes Pacific Coast Travelers With Style

A gentle breeze off the Sea of Cortez and Pacific Ocean sweeps across the Baja Peninsula after the sun has set on another picture-perfect day in Los Cabos, Mexico. All that's left in this paradise of sea, sand and mountains are the twinkling lights and exotic allure emanating from the luxury vacation gem, Las Ventanas al Paraíso, a Rosewood Resort.

With its oasis of thatched palapas, swaying palms and thriving cacti, the hotel offers a combination of painted desert and tropical splendor. And with the meticulous handwork of local craftsmen and woodcarvers — hand-laid pebble walkways, hand-painted murals, cedar doors, wrought iron details and colorful pottery — the culture and artisanry of Mexico permeates the entire resort.

The Dallas-based design team Wilson & Associates created the distinctive Mexican-Mediterranean environment at Las Ventanas and collaborated with San Diego-based art consultant Joan Warren-Grady to achieve a refined and creative aesthetic that showcases original art and centuries-old design traditions.

The hotel's 71 suites and private residences each illustrate this rich heritage with architectural elements of stucco exteriors and wood-beamed ceilings, and greenery indigenous to Mexico. Relaxation pools invite guests to a refreshing plunge.

In keeping with the resort's lifestyle of relaxation and rejuvenation, the destination spa at Las Ventanas offers personalized service amidst a garden setting of desert flowers, plants and herbs. Restorative treatments, holistic therapies, healing rituals, organic products, and remedies from Mexico and around the world invigorate the body and soul.

Baja-Mediterranean cuisine, fine tequila and diverse ceviche menus imbue the hotel's restaurants with the flavor of Mexico. For recreation, two tennis courts, luxury yacht excursions up the Pacific Coast and championship golf courses within reach provide endless leisure.
