Costa Baja Resort and Spa
The property’s sandstone-colored exterior may blend in with its desert surroundings, but its 115 rooms are bold and richly colored, with dark woodfurnishings, turquoise bed throws, and black headboards. Many rooms also have patios and floor-to-ceiling windows or sliding doors looking out on a lush 18-hole golf course or desert mountains plunging into the deep blue Sea of Cortés. Days here are spent by the pool, on the private beach, at the beach club sippingwaterfront-worthy cocktails, or at the spa, indulging in a hot stone or deep tissue massage, facial, or manicure and pedicure. In the evenings, guests gather for expertly prepared burgers or whole fresh fish at Steinbeck’s Restaurant, a hip space under a palapa with views of the marina.
