This Hotel Pool Is On A Whole Other Level

You can expect to encounter some interesting people in the lobby of Cabo’s Hotel El Ganzo; perhaps an artist-in-residence will be painting an original piece on the walls of the open white-washed lobby, or maybe a musician you love will be climbing into a hole in the floor to lay down their next track in the fully-equipped underground recording studio.

Yep, even the lobby is impressive, but the star of the hotel can be found by entering the elevator, hitting the level three button and emerging on to rooftop deck to the dopest infinity pool you’ve ever laid eyes on. And just like that, there go the rest of your Cabo plans.

Yes, that is a giant Stormtrooper mural.

The massive plunge pool (all 187 square metres of it) stretches the length of the hotel’s rooftop, from the sushi bar on one side, serving up cocktails and fresh fish hauled up directly from the marina below, to the curtained Bali beds on the other. The jewel on this watery crown is an elevated glass tub where photo opportunities are as infinite as the pool’s edge.

Like this.

It doesn’t matter when you visit; pretty much every day of the year is a pool day at El Ganzo. The adults-only hotel is set on the harbour of Cabo (or Los Cabos as its also known), on the very southern tip of Mexico’s Baja Peninsula where the dry desert meets the shining blue Sea of Cortez. The climate conditions result in 350 days of sunshine a year. It’s ripe for the basking.


When you do leave the pool, you can hop on a bike (free for hotel guests) and cruise around the harbour to the neat Wirikuta Garden cactus farm or you can jump on the small boat that ferries guests across to the hotel’s private beach club for a dip in the sea.

Cabo is just a two hour plane ride south of LA; go on, tack a few days on to the end of your next US jaunt and book into the coolest digs in the desert.
