I’m so excited to share my Los Cabos adventures with you here today! I was beyond blessed and totally thrilled to have been invited on a press trip (along with several other wonderful wedding bloggers) to check out and review the Westin Resort and Spa Los Cabos and the Sheraton Hacienda del Mar Golf & Spa Resort as destinations for weddings and honeymoons.
The amazingly talented and super-sweet Chelsea LaVere of Bit of Ivory Photography accompanied me and you’re absolutely going to fall in love with her images of these resorts.
It takes a lot to get a Hawaii girl to admit that any other place outside of these islands is ideal for destination weddings and honeymoons, but Los Cabos definitely is!
First up: THE WESTIN RESORT AND SPA LOS CABOS
(read part two with the Sheraton here )
… is gorgeous and secluded.
The Westin Resort and Spa Los Cabos is situated in a unique location and designed to perfection. The modern architecture is fabulous and the colors are amazing. The best word for it is ‘cool.’ It really is such a cool place.
This resort is set apart from the others in Los Cabos so it has a more secluded feeling. In the mornings and at night all you hear is the ocean. It’s lovely! The rooms are stylish, clean, and ideal for honeymooners. Every room in this hotel has an epic view of the ocean and it all felt very grown up, very now.
I loved this place.
Of the two resorts The Westin Resort and Spa Los Cabos had more couples than families (in fact… I’m having a hard time remembering seeing any children there at all) which is a honeymoon plus in my book.
Transcabo not only picked us up at the airport (HIGHLY recommend them – they took so much stress out of the whole airport transfer process) but they also treated us to a luxury sail with Cabo Adventures.
The sail was fantastic and it allowed you to get up close and personal with the iconic natural arch and sea lion colonies. The crew kept the drinks and delicious food coming, music playing, and it was so much fun! A sailing adventure is an awesome pre- or post- wedding activity with your guests AND a definite must for honeymooners.
The restaurant at the Westin, Addicefes, is absolutely fabulous. Their fresh fish was delicious, the attention to detail was magnificent, and the plating was a work of art.
The Westin Resort and Spa Los Cabos has a fabulous al fresco wedding area (and since Los Cabos is a desert, you never have to worry about rain on your big day).
Along with the exceptional staff at the Westin, The Main Event Cabo designed a beautiful wedding ceremony and reception area and treated us all to one of the most delicious meals I had there: lobster, lamb, and a huge array of hors d’oeuvres, signature cocktails, and desserts.
The purples, greys, and silvers of the wedding reception and ceremony design mimicked the colors of the sunset and the entire evening was magical. It’s a definite YES for destination weddings!
For your honeymoon: YES. The Westin Resort and Spa Los Cabos is perfect for it. Book your honeymoon here.
For your wedding: YES. They can accommodate huge or small weddings and the Westin is fabulous if your wedding guests are mostly adults. Plan your destination wedding here.
