Photo: The Cape Hotel located at Km. 5 outside Cabo San Lucas
If your heart and eyes long for a different when you select your hotel stay in Cabo San Lucas - something far from the same old (but truly comfortable) faux Spanish Colonial style hotels, you should take a look at this new post-Odile Cabo luxury hotel - The Cape by Thompson Hotels.
Located at km. 5 just outside of centro Cabo it displays a wonderful panoramic vision of Cabo San Lucas bay and Land's End beyond.The architecture incorporates many sophisticated design trends as the following article will inform. And it's definitely not Mexican hacienda style or even Spanish modern. No glaring white plaster walls, red roof tiles or adobe pots. Just lots of big windows, balconies and huge terraces to enjoy the outside with, which is what you came to this 'desert by the sea' location for afterall.
I'd venture to describe it as 'Desert Industrial' given its clean no-nonsense Bauhaus lines, open spaces and reliance on the darker earth tones found in local plants, rocks, reefs and desert highways. Now I have to leave before the architect of this masterpiece breaks my laptop. Read the following article from Maxim to catch the full flavor. -ed
THOMPSON HOTELS LOS CABOS INFLUENCERS X JAVIER SÁNCHEZ
Inspired by the natural beauty of the Cortez Sea, Mexican architect Javier Sánchez has added to his groundbreaking portfolio of work with The Cape, a new Thompson Hotel in the picturesque, laid-back haven of Los Cabos, Mexico. A founding partner and director of the Mexico City architecture firm, JSa, Sánchez works with what he calls “an urban acupuncture strategy,” using the natural world and public spaces to disrupt and regenerate the city’s fabric. He has designed more than ninety projects.
Luxury Hotels in Cabo can be lots of things – beautiful, opulent, romantic, and often tequila-soaked – but until now “cool” wasn’t really one of them. Enter The Cape, opened a few months ago by Thompson Hotels, the NYC-based company known for super-stylish, one-of-a-kind properties.
The Cape, on the Cabo San Lucas end of the peninsula, immediately sets itself apart on account of its modernistic architecture, refreshing in and of itself in an area where endless variations on mediterranean and hacienda style dominate the landscape.
Visionary Mexico City architect Javier Sanchez designed the property, with three buildings centered around a pool and beach club, with a “1960s Southern California-meets-Baja” aesthetic, and it really works. Metal, wood and concrete create a contemporary feel and play off the crashing surf and rock formations on its choice bit of coastline.
Sanchez also managed it so every room and vantage point overlook the ocean, the iconic Cabo stone arch (“El Arco”) and the Bahía San Lucas horizon. James Bond, who also picked Mexico for his last film, would feel perfectly at home at The Cape, martini or margarita in hand.
The interior design echoes the nouveau-vintage cool vibe, especially in the lobby and Glass Box bars, the only rooftop lounge in Cabo San Lucas, and Manta, the super-sexy Mexican–South American–Japanese restaurant helmed by famed Mexican chef Enrique Olvera.

The rooms and suites, which all feature private balconies, are equally elegant, boasting leather headboards, handpainted tile floors, great artwork and well-stocked mini bars made to look like vintage travel trunks.
Upon arrival, heed our advice and do the following: skip the tequila and order an artisanal mezcal at one of the hotel's swim-up bars, where you can expect to encounter lithe, tanned lovelies languidly quaffing glasses of sauvignon blanc. It's the right thing to do.
The Infinity Pool in this photo is truly magical - at first glace it appears to be a beach.
