Resort Located on Southern Tip of Baja Penninsula
Nobu Hotel Los Cabos is a modern, luxury resort located at the southern tip of the Baja Peninsula. WATG, a landscape architect firm based in Honolulu, Hawaii, provided landscape architecture and architecture services to deliver a resort at the intersection of exquisite cuisine, innovation and creativity, designed to honor the Japanese principles of the Nobu brand while infusing local flavors of Mexico. The hotel opened its doors in March 2019, unveiling a uniquely serene experience to Cabo San Lucas with 200 guest rooms and suites, multiple swimming pools, a chef's garden, a luxury spa with a hydrotherapy experience, meeting and event spaces and food/beverage venues.
In order to maximize the ocean views without obstructing nearby residences, WATG designed a series of low, horizontal buildings, all of which are connected by vast yet private courtyards. WATG carefully planned the resort to respond to environmental factors and the views. Partnering with a world-renown wind consultant, the team began by identifying and ranking a series of "zones" on-site based on levels of comfort for the guests and staff. With strong winds being prevalent in this region, WATG harnessed that data to designate a safe placement for the resort, as well as mapping out areas for outdoor corridors that provide natural ventilation and work with the wind, not against it.
