Quarantine and Chill Like a Celebrity in Cabo

A short two-and-a-half-hour flight from Los Angeles, Los Cabos has long been the place where celebrities escape for a quick getaway. Since Mexico started reopening in June to travel and with no restrictions on north-of-the-border visitors, the city’s famed luxury resorts are ripe, ready and sanitized to receive COVID-free customers, A-list or otherwise.

Over the past decade, to answer the demands of an ever-growing elite customer base, new hospitality offerings from the most swanky names in the stay-and-play business have popped up. This seaside paradise has officially pivoted away from the all-inclusive vacation deal-loving crowd and now appeals to the $40 toro tartare with caviar-loving creed—thanks to the arrival of Nobu Los Cabos.

Celebrating its seventh year as a resort brand in 2020 with 12 properties worldwide, chef Nobu Matsuhisa’s eponymous hotels just have a way with celebrities—much like his Peruvian Japanese fusion cooking techniques. Matsuhisa has built an empire over the past 33 years with 43 restaurants, and along the way he made valuable besties and business partners in Robert De Niro and film producer Meir Teper—neither of whom have Tik Tok accounts.

Canadian Jamacian model Winnie Harlow recently caused quite a stir on property when she celebrated her 26th birthday in late July with a bikini and boots fashion shoot in a few very prickly places around Nobu Los Cabos—a zen-vocative Japanese minimalist retreat crafted from locally sourced, natural Mexican materials and finishes.

Harlow also feasted on carbs—custom-made shrimp, butter and garlic spaghetti—inside her Miyabi suite, pranced in the four pools with her girlfriends, dipped in and out of her swim-up cabana and luxuriated in a boudoir filled with hundreds of flowers presumably from L.A. Lakers boyfriend Kyle Kuzma.
