Some of the hippest rooms we’ve encountered recently can be found at the Bahia Hotel in Cabo San Lucas, Mexico.
Bahia Hotel, Cabo
Owners Lee and Meredith Vosburgh ditched New York for Cabo a few years ago to jazz up the old hotel, which had seen better days.
The all-white, minimalist décor and polished concrete floors (in the remodeled deluxe rooms) appeal especially to young couples in their 20s, 30s and 40s (yes – 40 is still young!).
Rooms have queen-size beds or double beds, no kings.
Tiny kitchenettes in the studio-style rooms are good for making snacks and perhaps a light breakfast.
But for dinner, you’d want to eat out at the hotel’s happening Bar Esquina restaurant or elsewhere.
Very South Beach in feel, the boutique hotel is about a block away from the lively stretch of Medano Beach.
There, you’ll find Cabo SUP (run by the Bahia Hotel’s owners), where you can rent stand-up paddle boards and take SUP lessons.
When the Medano Beach party gets too much (and you tire of getting sand in your bikini), retreat to the Zen-like pool area back at the hotel, with couples sunbeds, gauzy white curtains, soft music and free WiFi.
