Fathom Favorites : Baja + Cabo Hotels

1. Montage Los Cabos

Montage Los Cabos

Located in a quiet cove in a previously undeveloped bay on one of only swimmable beach in the area, Montage has skillfully preserved that peaceful, secluded feeling that should have been its responsibility in developing such a private cove. Not only did they do an excellent job integrating the hotel into the natural landscape of the Bay, but they enhanced the public access and facilities to the water, encouraging community and reinforcing the understanding that in Mexico, everyone owns the beach. Well done, Montage.
