The reigning presence overlooking one of the swimmable beaches in Los Cabos, ME Cabo brings much more than fun in the sun to one of America’s favorite escape spots. The upscale lifestyle resort—known for its emphasis on art, design, and culinary experiences—reopened in 2021 after a $16 million renovation with a fresh new look and modern upgrades to its 169 guest rooms, spa, and outdoor areas. And now, ME Cabo has added Grupo Rosa Negra to its offerings—with four new culinary hotspots that highlight local ingredients and Latin American cuisine.

The resort is one of what will soon be 14 Hotels by Meliá in Mexico making a statement on what a vacation can mean. In Los Cabos it means unconventional luxury with bold design, contemporary art, pulsating music, and impeccable service—the resort has been awarded a prestigious four-star rating by Forbes Travel Guide.

ME Cabo’s new look presents a chic, minimalist aesthetic to rooms and suites—most opening to private balconies with breathtaking views of the Sea of Cortez. The hotel’s crown jewel, the Beyond ME+Suite, showcases a sprawling terrace with a private pool, DJ booth, and unparalleled panoramic vistas.

The pet-friendly and party-friendly property’s beachfront location offers guests direct access to the pristine sands of Playa El Médano, famous for its calm waters and vibrant beach scene. Near Playa El Médano is Tamara Beach, a new beach club where the free-spirited essence of bohemian style merges with the stunning coastal views. Its menu highlights the bounty of the sea with select ceviches and chef’s specialties made with fresh local fish.

Business meetings, too, benefit from ME Cabo’s beachfront location. Corporate events take off at Taboo, where business and pleasure merge through state-of-the-art facilities, personalized services, and outdoor team-building.

For dining, there is Taboo Beach Club & Restaurant featuring fresh seafood and wood-fired baked goods. Funky Geisha brings a taste of Asia to the beach, in a menu highlighting Japanese, Thai, and other Asian cuisines. At Craft Open Fire Kitchen, on the resort rooftop, guests take in panoramic views of the ocean and the Arch of Cabo San Lucas as they dine under the stars or watch an incredible sunset.

Meanwhile, Mamazzita Mexican Soul serves breakfast and dinner with a modern twist on traditional Mexican cuisine. The resort’s collaboration with Grupo Rosa Negra elevates the culinary scene in Los Cabos, providing innovative and avant-garde dishes in high-energy settings, especially in a destination now home to three of 16 restaurants in Mexico recognized by Michelin.

For those who want to venture out of the hotel for chic shopping and gallery going, Cabo San Lucas is a seven-minute walk away, and bursting with day parties and nightlife. But it you want to relax, ME Cabo’s KORPO Wellness Spa obliges with detox and rejuvenation treatments mixing in local ingredients and indigenous wisdom.

ME Cabo’s happenings continue to impress through collaborations with creative minds from around the world. The resort’s Happenings Program offers fun, immersive lifestyle and cultural experiences connected to the local scene. Partnering with the most exclusive brands in fashion, arts, music, spirits—and offering epic lineups with DJs including TIËSTO, Alok, Claptone, and Steve Aoki, among others—ME Cabo promises unforgettable moments and extraordinary hospitality.

Whether you’re basking beachside in the sun, exploring the vibe of Los Cabos, or dancing the night away at exclusive events, your summer at ME Cabo promises to be nothing short of extraordinary.
