This dreamy, design-forward hotel opened to much fanfare in 2018, in part thanks to its highly Instagrammable aesthetic. Conceived and executed by a variety of designers (notably Miguel Angel Aragonés), the resort is a modern spectacle: guests are welcomed to an airy lobby framing the hotel's pièce de résistance, an open-air pavilion of shallow water convening around a nest-like lattice structure—part-contemporary art installation, part-hotel. This massive entryway is framed by minimalist white towers (housing guest accommodations), leading to the oval-shaped swimming pool and beach. The result is an optical illusion-like design, which is striking yet understated, playful yet sophisticated.

The resort's 194 rooms, suites and villas echo the overall aesthetic, with sexy and streamlined design. Crisp white linens, blonde wood accents and marble furniture complement fluid, indoor-outdoor layouts with balconies and terraces overlooking the pavilion and ocean below. There are palatial multi-bedroom residences that are similarly outfitted, with Jacuzzis, floor-to-ceiling windows and expansive outdoor spaces.

With so many restaurants and hotels in Cabo, it's only necessary for a newcomer to come prepared with A+ dining options, and the Viceroy delivers. Guests have a choice between Nido, housed in the resort's iconic nest structure, which serves excellent fish and street food-inspired cuisine; Casero Restaurant, an all-day eatery of creative Mexican classics like short rib chilaquiles and pancakes with cajeta; and Cielomar, the 360-degree rooftop with elevated dinner offerings like wood-fired pizzas, yellowtail tartare and marinated whiskey duck—served around a fire pit.

When not savoring cocktails and bites by the beach, guests can unwind at the 11,000-sq.-ft. spa, which is a state-of-the-art marvel of wellness offerings including hydro-massage chairs, ice fountains and a menu of treatments utilizing organic local ingredients. Curated by the Viceroy's 'Head of Vibe,' there are plenty of other pursuits on offer, including surfing with a local instructor, fishing and water sports, along with creative activities like underwater photography, tequila-making classes and guided walks in San Jose Del Cabo's downtown.
