The Cape’s impressive panoramic features were done by design: Once Mexico City-based architect Javier Sánchez spotted the spectacular views from the pre-built land plot, he decided to build the entire resort to complement them. The two accommodation buildings curve along the crescent-shaped beach so as to not block one another’s line of sight; everywhere from the ground-level infinity pool to the sixth-floor rooftop lounge has a picture-perfect view of the coastline and the world-famous granite arch.

The Cape veers from the common white-washed aesthetic seen in most other Cabo resorts for a more sleek, dark, and urbane look. You’ll feel it most upon entering the gargantuan lobby space, after passing through the newly-installed sanitization tunnel, with black-painted concrete ceilings and a wall-less frame towards the sea. Though it’s easy to be distracted by the outdoor views, interior designer Marisabel Gómez Vázquez provides ample eye candy with mismatched leather furniture, ceramics, locally-sourced woods, and graphic antique-style tiles seen in the guestrooms and restaurant venues.

Dining and drinking venues at The Cape — which includes an infinity pool-flanked swim-up bar, casual all-day restaurant The Ledge, and open-air lounge The Rooftop — is business as usual, save for paper menus being replaced by contactless QR codes. The resort’s proper restaurants The Ledge and Manta, the latter run by World’s Best 50 Restaurants chef and Mexico native Enrique Olvera, both have outdoor seating, offering the same sublime views of the Sea of Cortez and El Arco as elsewhere on the resort.

Currents, the spa tucked on the resort’s western edge, is rather quiet due to the lowered resort guest count, which makes it all the more appealing. Masseuses are masked for the duration of each service, and beyond the five indoor treatment rooms are two plushly-draped massage cabanas hovering a few steps away from the sandy beach. Don’t be surprised if you have the gorgeous, breeze-filled common area to yourself, containing a sauna, steam room, and outdoor warm-and-cold plunge pools surrounded by natural rock formations and restorative seaside vistas.

When you want to venture out of the resort and explore Cabos San Lucas’ natural offerings, The Cape’s Guest Experiences team provides a fine-combed list of trusted, COVID-cautious vendors to choose from. The Cabo Shark Dive is perhaps the region’s most hair-raising thrill, where one can snorkel or scuba dive (or simply watch from the boat) with several shark species in the open sea with a modified maximum of five guests per boat.

El Arco is too iconic to not see up-close, and charter company Pisces Yachts offers private excursions to the site and along the coast, dodging the crowds that often come with boat tours to the arched wonder.
