Cabo San Lucas, Baja California Sur, Mexico

Stunning doesn’t begin to describe the setting for Hacienda
Encantada, a contemporary beachfront hacienda-style resort.
Located on a cliff top at the tip of the Baja Peninsula, this
welcoming resort offers panoramas of crystal blue water,
towering rocks and prickly cacti. The Sea of Cortez and its
Land’s End arch lie to the right, the San Jose coastline to the
left. Scenery doesn’t get prettier than this.

The resort itself complements this breathtaking locale. Its first
phase is currently operating with 56 rooms, all suites and each
decorated in traditional hacienda style with modern amenities.
Handcrafted dark wood furnishings and rich, bright colors offer a
traditional Mexican feel, yet from ceiling fans to soaps the extra
touches are thoroughly modern. Embroidered pillows,
impressive artwork and woven throw rugs add color and texture
to the light and airy rooms. Suites are studios and one- and two-
bedroom units. Each has a kitchen or kitchenette complete with
a refrigerator, electric stove, blender, toaster, microwave oven,
can opener and corkscrew.

Even the entrance is grand, and reminiscent of colonial Mexican
towns. Following a personal greeting, guess are escorted under

Las Marias Restaurant and Bar is located right on the beach,
and serves exceptionally well-prepared Mexican cuisine. The

tribute to the women of this beautiful country. For lighter meals,
El Patio offers options in a snack-bar format. Groceries and
sundries are sold in La Tiendita, an all-in-one supermarket ideal
for those wishing to prepare their own meals.

The activities desk staff will happily book ATVs, parasailing,
snorkeling, diving, fishing and golf adventures. World-class golf
facilities are a quick 10-minute drive away. Visitors also enjoy
fishing for marlin near the area’s deep-water canyons; shopping
for black coral and crafts in Los Cabos’ colonial-style boutiques;
and going whale watching, horseback riding and hiking. The
tequila museum in downtown Cabo San Lucas is an educational
stop that teaches how tequila is distilled. Its exhibits explain the
differences among varieties of the regional spirit.
