The Cape, a Thompson Hotel

México 1 Km 5, Misiones del Cabo, 23455 Cabo San Lucas, B.C.S., Mexico

Design junkies will find plenty to love at The Cape on Monuments Beach. Designed by Mexican architect Javier Sánchez, the hotel eschews resort staples like wicker and rattan for a sleeker look that marries mid-century standards with locally sourced furnishings and art. In the 161 spacious guest rooms, leather headboards and copper-leafed tubs complement private tiled balconies with ocean views. The style extends to the public spaces, which include Manta (acclaimed Mexican chef Enrique Olvera’s globally inspired seafood restaurant), a saltwater pool, and a spa that’s cleverly tucked into a natural rock formation.

The surfers at Monuments Beach have an audience in the guests at The Cape. All 161 rooms have terraces stocked with binoculars for whale (or surfer) watching. The 1960s Mexico-meets-SoCal style is courtesy of acclaimed Mexican architect Javier Sánchez; big-name chef Enrique Olvera oversees the food. The hotel’s rooftop bar provides the ideal place to sip a margarita while enjoying views across the Sea of Cortez.
