Los Cabos — a catch-all name for the neighboring towns of Cabo San Lucas and San José del Cabo – is popular travel destination in Mexico on the southern tip of the Baja California Peninsula between the Pacific Ocean and the Sea of Cortez.
The area has grown since celebrities and fishing fans began visiting in the 1950s. Today, this West Coast Mexico destination is rolling out the red carpet for families, offering great experiences suitable for everyone in the group. Whether you are visiting Los Cabos for the many outdoor activities or just to enjoy the great weather on the beach, the exclusive Griffin Club – a 45-room boutique hotel located within the JW Marriott Los Cabos Resort is our pick for luxurious accommodations.
The design of the Griffin Club at the JW Marriott Los Cabos Resort seamlessly blends architecture and art with the site’s powerful desert landscape and an endless panorama of the Pacific Ocean. Though separated from the water by a 35-foot-tall dune, the resort creates an immediate connection from entry to ocean through a horizon-framing main arrival hall and intuitive, adventure-evoking pathways throughout the resort. In addition to contemporary, gorgeously appointed suite accommodations, the secluded Griffin Club provides a generous list of amenities to add value to your stay.
The Jasha Spa of the resort offers harmonizes well-being, discovery and indulgence with many treatments focus on indigenous remedies and rituals. Beyond the pools, saunas, and steam rooms, you’ll also have access to a temazcal, a Mexican sweat lodge.
Dining highlight of the resort is the award-winning Chef Thierry Blouet’s renowned Café des Artistes that reinterprets the finest in Mexican cuisine with a French influence. If you’d like to venture off-resort, the Flora Farms is just a short ride, featuring a 25-acre organic working farm in the foothills of the Sierra de la Laguna Mountains.
