Cabo Azul Resort

I already shared some pics of the fun we had in Los Cabos. Today I thought I’d show off some snaps of the resort where we stayed, Cabo Azul.

We went back and forth on all-inclusive vs. non-inclusive. And since good food and a variety of food options was pretty important to us, we went for a non-inclusive place. This way, if the resort food was not so hot, we wouldn’t feel compelled to eat there because we’d already paid for it.

I loved these straw garlands hung outside the (fairly decent) restaurant.

We got a 2 bedroom villa. Somehow I lucked into my own room. It didn’t have a window to the outside—it had a frosted window that faced an interior hallway. But, it was so beautifully decorated, I didn’t even notice. Plus I slept like a freaking sunburnt log.

The canvas drapery went all around the room and over the ceiling like a circus tent. The carved headboard was also backlit, so when we came back after dinner it illuminated the mint on my pillow. The bathroom mirror was backlit too. I left it on as a nightlight.

The master bedroom had canvas draped over the king-sized bed and a pair of these on either side.

The villa’s living room had dark wood beams and white slipcovered furniture with carved, dark wood accents. I loved how simple it was, but there were so many details that made it special. Like this fringe on the dining chairs.

And this shell-ish light.

Outside the living room and master was a big patio with canvas drapes. The ceiling was painted brown, which made the space a little warmer and more intimate.

But when this is the view, you’re really not looking at the ceiling too much.

The pool area was gorgeous, too, with dark wood chaises and white terry cloth covers. The pool also had a natural rock bottom, which I really like the look of. But don’t worry, there was still a swim-up bar.

Whoever decorated this resort had a wonderful sense of texture. I loved these nubby planters. There were a couple dozen of them lining the edge of the infinity pool waterfall.

We found the resort through TripAdvisor. It had great reviews and definitely did not let us down. I would love to go back, if for no other reason than they had this drink called Miami Vice—half piña colada, half strawberry daiquiri. Where have you been all my life, Don Johnson?

Isn’t it a beautiful resort? What’s the pretty place you’ve stayed?

PS. See where Taylor and I stayed for our honeymoon. They use the canvas draping trick too.
