Some of the hippest rooms we’ve encountered recently can be found at the Bahia Hotel in Cabo San Lucas, Mexico.
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.
Details for booking the Bahia Hotel
- Rates: Accommodations cost about half the price of Cabo’s beachfront hotels. See here to book.
- Looking for super-swank accommodations? If you don’t mind paying quite a bit more in Cabo, try One & Only Palmilla (very tropical, very deluxe – we know from our lovely stay there!)

The Bahia Hotel is one of several hotels and resorts that we’ve personally stayed at and/or inspected in Los Cabos. We love the Mexican resort destination of Los Cabos, and visit it frequently.
