Hacienda Encantada Hotel, Resort & Spa is located 20 minutes from San Jose del Cabo and 10 minutes from Cabo San Lucas; overlooking the Sea of Cortez, and Land’s End. You’ll discover the serenity that Baja’s desert-by-the-sea is famous for. Wander from here along isolated coastline of the Los Cabos corridor as if in your own world. Discover hidden coves, surf fish, snorkel, swim in the sea, or relax in our infinity pool and watch a glorious sunset. Our Oceanside Hotel, Spa and Resort offers service and luxury unrivaled – your stay here will be remembered for years to come. You can Golf at adjacent Cabo del Sol (Rated #1 in Latin America). Go sport fishing, shopping, or party all night in Cabo. Yes, you can have it all – at the Hacienda Encantada Resort!

Spectacular Hacienda Encantada Hotel cascades down a hill overlooking the Sea of Cortez. Magnificent views of ocean sunrises, and sunsets over Land’s End can be yours from your suite’s private terrace, restaurants or from our infinity pool located on a cliff high above the crashing surf. Have your special event at Hacienda Encantada’s Convention Salon. Be it weddings, business conferences, or private parties – our experienced staff will make it happen for you!

Hacienda Encantada’s 92 luxurious suites will spoil you, for Old World elegance once experienced is never forgotten. You’ll dream away on our plush beds featuring richly embellished hand-carved headboards and tall finials. The sofas, armoires, chandeliers, original paintings and artisan décor make a statement of style and quality. Kitchens come fully equipped from wine glasses and china to tableware, cookware, stainless refrigerators and ranges set in granite counters, micro-wave, blender (read margaritas!), quality cabinetry and more. A fully stocked mini-mart is on premises for those times your inner-chef has the urge to cook. Bathrooms are fully appointed in natural stone, marble and high quality fixtures. Our suites include spacious studios, one to three bedroom units and a luxurious Presidential Suite suitable for large families or presidents. All suites have furnished private terraces overlooking the infinity pool, Sea of Cortez, the coastline to Land’s End or the expansive main swimming pool terrace.

Our bright terra-cotta colored Mexican hacienda style buildings are beautifully decorated with hand-made Talevera tile murals, vases, classical sculptures, Spanish colonial fountains, and – contemporary art for contrast. Be sure to see the whimsical Alexander Calder inspired water sculpture adjacent to the Pergola restaurant and children’s play structure.

Our La Pergola Restaurant & Pool Bar is the perfect place for a casual meal for 2, or groups up to 100 that want to add water activities to their menu of fun. Our restaurant offers dining al fresco under a shady pergola on elegant cast-iron glass covered tables and comfy chairs. The red-tile roofed outdoor kitchen and bar offer outdoor grilled burgers, sandwiches, Arrechera steak, shrimp baskets, and traditional Mexican fare. 

Secluded, mystical, and enchanting – El Patio Restaurant is as close to paradise as you can get. Enjoy casual, intimate dining, drinks on our patio overlooking the sea, or a cool margarita at the infinity pool’s swim-up bar. Your gaze will drift beyond the water’s edge, merging with the Sea of Cortez’s horizon and sky above. Experience the power and beauty of nature as waves crash on the rocks fifty feet below your table. 

Critics agree our Las Marias restaurant is one of the most romantic places to dine in Baja. Watch the world sail by from our Las Marias restaurant high on a bluff high over the Sea of Cortez. Whales, yachts, cruise ships, and a Hollywood movie buccaneer pirate ship from Cabo, pass by often offshore. Indulge in our special omelet of shrimp, spinach and Hollandaise sauce while watching a beautiful sunrise. The Glory Salad using organically grown local produce and chunks of blue cheese is a culinary work of art not-to-be-missed. Our original chocolate/chile based mole’ sauce recipe takes two days preparation using 35 ingredients, and is fantastic served over chicken. Light up your evening with the Los Barriles Style Shrimp – flambe’d tableside in a delicious Tequila coconut sauce. Our wine list features European, South American, Napa Sonoma and the finest Mexican labels including numerous gold medal-winning Madero wines. Watch a romantic sunset over a Coco or Tamarindo margarita, or Mango Tango rum drink. Then sit back and watch the moon rise over the Sea of Cortez and the stars come out. Open 6am till 11pm. and can handle groups of up to 200 plus 100 in adjacent salon and patio.

Pamper yourself with a luxurious massage or other beauty treatment at Hacienda Encantada’s Spa after a day relaxing by the pool, playing 18 holes of golf, or having spent the day enjoying Cabo’s many exciting attractions. Enjoy your massage in our fully equipped spa, in the privacy of your own suite, or on a romantic Caribbean bed high on cliffs overlooking the surf below. You may want to stay there awhile after your treatment and let the desert aromas and ocean breezes complete the experience. You deserve it. Swedish, Deep Tissue, and Aromatherapy as well as Facials, Waxing and more are offered Monday to Saturday 9am. to 5pm.

Our Hacienda Encantada’s Convention Salon is located conveniently next door to our Las Marias restaurant perched high above the hotel and sea below. The colonial inspired décor features upholstered armchairs, wood tables, and a massive dark wood colonial glass-door bar back with bar seating. 18th century paintings, crystal chandeliers and the baby grand piano create an elegant ambiance. Exotic wood arched French windows and the patio dining area offer views of the Sea of Cortez. Available for breakfasts, lunches, or events at night, the private club-like main salon seats groups to 70 comfortably, with seating for another 30 on the pergola-covered patio outside.
