World's Best Beach Hotels
No. 11 Capella Pedregal, Los Cabos, Mexico
Reached by a 1,000-foot-long tunnel drilled through mountain rock, this 96-room boutique resort has all the requisite beachfront touches: a meandering main pool and private plunge pools; an oceanfront spa, where signature treatments are based on the cycles of the moon; and an alfresco restaurant, El Farallón, where suntanned travelers order the fish of the day from a chalkboard menu. The hotel is close to Cabo San Lucas beach bars and shops and a short boat ride away from the sea-splashed rock formations of Lands’ End and El Arco.
