Estrella Suites at Capella Pedregal, Cabo San Lucas, Mexico

Estrella Suites at Capella Pedregal, Cabo San Lucas, Mexico

Sandwiched between the mountains and ocean, accessible by a chandelier-lit tunnel, balmy Baja Peninsula beach retreat Capella Pedregal in north-west Mexico is dedicated to pleasure. All 96 rooms in this luxe Cabo San Lucas getaway tout stellar sea views (the balcony-blessed Estrella Suite is fabulously flirty), with colourful Mexican art and plunge pools. Four swank dining venues span beach shack-chic to fine dining, including Crudo for raw fish fans. Stroll on the sand, float in the infinity pool or relax in Auriga Spa, where treatments are inspired by the lunar cycles. Yoga and candlelit massages are also yours to command.

Master Terrace Suites at Coqui Coqui Tulum, Riviera Maya, Mexico

Master Terrace Suites at Coqui Coqui Tulum, Riviera Maya, Mexico

Surrounded by jungle and sea, boutique retreat Coqui Coqui Tulum basks on Mexico’s beach-blessed, south-eastern Riviera Maya, just a hop from coast-clinging Mayan temple Tulum. Combining rusticity with sexy seclusion, the seven breezy bedrooms are soothing spaces, with tactile concrete floors, white-linen draped four-poster beds and vast, hand-moulded sunken tubs for soaking à deux. Hammocks add a local touch, as do woven lights and own-label perfumery bath products (all rooms are lovely, but the ocean-facing Master Terrace Suites have private terraces with dreamy day-beds). Watch the waves crash onto the white-sand beach; then go temple-hopping. Viva Mexico!
