Zadún, a Ritz-Carlton Reserve, San José del Cabo

by David Krebs


San José del Cabo

Nestled into the sand dunes along Mexico's dramatic San José del Cabo coastline, a place of mystery and magic unfolds. One where fire is the catalyst for bold flavors; heat and sound are healers; the sea is a place of adventure and discovery; whims are anticipated and fulfilled; and your place of rest is a gallery of Mexican artistry.

Embracing panoramic views and listening to the powerful rhythmic crashes of the waves from the Sea of Cortez, guests at Zadún, a Ritz-Carlton Reserve, can easily indulge in self-care. Located in San José del Cabo, on the southern tip of the Baja Peninsula, the resort sits on a hillside that slopes down to a beach along the sea.   

There are five Ritz-Carlton Reserves in the world, with each location specifically selected for its distinctive environs. 

Suites are designed for guests to be in close contact with nature—operable walls open to the lush landscape that winds through the resort. You may be tempted to spend the whole trip in your suite, as each offers a spacious outdoor patio with dining and lounge areas, outdoor soaking pool and expansive views. There is a casual elegance that comes from lounging in bathing suits and flip-flops in environments with modern architecture that speaks to quiet sophistication, tranquility and sense of history. Artwork and furnishings reflect the rich tradition of Mexico’s cultural heritage. 

Tucked back into a secluded garden oasis, Spa Alkemia provides an ultra-immersive experience, built around a courtyard with cabanas, tropical landscaping and a plunge pool. Treatments centered around local herbs, salts and hand-blended ingredients take place in luxuriously appointed private suites. Healing waters in the form of an open-air circuit take you on a transformative journey of mind, body and spirit. 

Of course, it all comes together with the personal concierge service that is a trademark of the Ritz-Carlton Reserve brand. Spending time in the sheer beauty of the landscape—with every detail taken care of perfectly—is an ideal way to relax, clear your mind and recharge.
