This seaside infinity pool is one of 10 at the new JW Marriott Los Cabos.
Spring break is right around the corner, which means it’s time to start planning your sun-drenched, beach vacation. Look no further than Cabo San Lucas’ newest luxury resort JW Marriott Los Cabos, which started welcoming guests this past December. Designed by esteemed architect Todd Olson, the 299-room hotel boasts sweeping views of the Sea of Cortez and is outlined by 10 swimming pools. “My main inspiration was the power of the ocean and bringing [its] power into every part of this hotel,” says Olson, who imagined the lavish yet modern guest rooms to feel like individual residences. “When you move through the space[s] there are always moments where your eye can focus on the outdoors,” he continues. “The architecture is designed to frame nature.” Olson certainly accomplishes his mission of indoor/outdoor living, a quintessential element to the Mexican lifestyle, with an open-air lobby and seven bars and restaurants. And when you’re not sunbathing by the pool or on the sand, make sure to pay a visit to the 21,000-square-foot Jasha Spa, which is filled with the scent of gorgeous plumeria trees. Try The Tides Relaxing Massage ($191, 60 minutes) to stimulate blood circulation or the Therapeutic Deep Tissue Massage ($261, 90 minutes) to relieve muscle tension. If you’re looking for a more intimate experience, stay at the Griffin Club, an ultraexclusive boutique hotel nestled on the property. With amenities like a private pool, beach and movie theater, you can’t go wrong. Overnight rates from $460, @jwloscabos
