If there’s one thing I think of when I hear the words 'Four Seasons', it's legendary service. With a location in nearly every city you could ever dream of visiting, the Four Seasons are seemingly taking over the world--and I'm not mad about it. Whether visiting one of their private retreats, shopping their at home collection, or vacationing to one of their beautiful destinations like Los Cabos at Costa Palmas, the level of service you'll receive is bested by no one (and did we mention they're introducing their new private jet in 2021?). Some of our most memorable trips as a family have been spent at Four Seasons across the world, so we were excited to visit their new development at Costa Palmas in California Sur, Mexico!
We couldn't have asked for a more ideal room set up than what we were provided at the Four Seasons Los Cabos at Costa Palmas. The rooms were extremely spacious while still maintaining a warm, cozy feel. Our room was connected to the kids room, which was wonderful and provided peace of mind knowing that they could simply pop over into our room whenever they needed something (without having to exit the suite). The kids room had double beds, which eliminated any chance of fighting (amen!) and the sweetest welcoming gift was waiting for them in their room upon our arrival: a cookie decorating kit with their names spelled out in sugar cookies! Note: If you're traveling with a baby and/or toddler, they even offer complimentary baby proofing items! Both of our rooms included large closets, enormous bathrooms, and an overall open concept with low profile pieces to allow the panoramic ocean view to be the glorious focal point. Every single room at the Four Seasons was created to allow the natural light to pour in and freshen the space, allowing us to feel not only relaxed, but revitalized. The indoor- outdoor concept flows beautifully from room to room, with an outdoor patio being the icing on the accommodation cake. Our outdoor lounge area had comfortable seating-- including a daybed--which provided us the perfect, private spot to take in the panoramic Sea of Cortez views. Every suite at the Four Seasons Los Cabos includes a personalized butler service, who go out of their way to ensure their clients are happy and cared for at all times--something we so appreciated since our children were with us! The entire staff make it clear that no ask is unattainable for their valued guests at Costa Palmas.
With the kids in tow, we wanted to fill our time with memorable activities and outings. As you can imagine, the 18-hole golf course which was recently added this past Fall to the Four Seasons Los Cabos at Costa Palmas was a huge hit with the boys, as well as the basketball courts and beach volleyball courts. Lilah enjoyed fishing and taking part in one of their incredible baby turtle releases, which is an activity offered through the "Kids For All Seasons" kids club on site--a fabulous offering for families! Speaking of the kids club, the Four Seasons truly thinks of everything in regards to your children having just as memorable of an experience as the adults. In addition to the Kids For All Seasons club, they provide a kids swimming area (a great option for kids of all ages), a Teen Centre with popular games and outdoor excursions, tennis lessons, and even child- sized bathrobes! Horseback riding, pickle ball and tennis courts, and bikes are among other available options, and for those of us of drinking age, they even have fun tequila and mezcal tastings--what better place to learn?
For some pampering post playtime, the Oasis Spa offers a menu of treatments and experiences with healing at the root. I chose the Oasis Elevating Yoga Facial, which uses aromatherapy and sound with a customized cleansing and masking regimen for your specific skin. Through energetic yogic massage techniques, I walked out with revitalized and glowing skin. I also enjoyed the Hot Stones Massage, a blend of warm and cool stones that relax your muscles, improve circulation, and reduce tension, as well as the foot and leg massage from their Beach and Pool Experiences menu, where they provide your service in the comfort of your lounge chair, followed by a hydrating mist--just what I needed while taking in some sun!
Part of what Chris and I love about traveling is experiencing the native cuisine of each place we visit. The kids aren't always as adventurous as us when it comes to cuisine, so we were thrilled to learn that every restaurant on the property has a separate menu catered specifically to children! It can sometimes be challenging to find healthy alternatives when on the road, but never at the Four Seasons Los Cabos. We started our day by fueling up at Estiatorio Milos, one of the finest Mediterranean seafood restaurants in the world. Situated right on the beach, the floor to ceiling, unobstructed windows offered breathtaking views of the ocean, enticing us to go outside and play after breakfast. Chris ordered the steel cut oatmeal, while I enjoyed a fresh veggie egg white omelette. The kids devoured their pancakes and waffles and then we were off to the beach! After some quality time spent on the pristine white sands of the untouched beachfront, we gathered for lunch at Casa De Brasa. This Baja brasserie sits between one of the properties six swimming pools and the oceanfront, providing a beautiful, tropical feel no matter which direction you face. Chris and I absolutely loved their grilled fish tacos and grilled shrimp chopped salad, in addition to their made-to-order guacamole (a must-have when visiting Mexico). Between the activities and outings throughout the afternoon, we worked up an appetite for a quick snack at Ginger's, a grab-and-go cafe. Chris ordered the berry smoothie, I had the matcha tea, and the kids indulged in the homemade gelato (more than once!). For dinner that evening, we sat under the stars and dined al fresco at Limón, a farm-to-table restaurant nestled in the middle of a lemon tree grove. The energy and ambiance of Limón provided a truly immersive experience, with live music, a warm breeze off the ocean, and lemon trees adorned with lights and lanterns. We spent our last night feasting on a fresh spread of carnitas, Spanish chorizo, lobster tail, and a marinated farm chicken in a mole sauce-- absolutely divine from start to finish.
I think it's clear we highly recommend exploring the beautiful beaches of Four Seasons Los Cabos at Costa Palmas the next time you book your much-deserved getaway, but in case it isn't, we'd love to chat with you more about their legendary service, which will provide you with legendary memories.
