Forbes Travel Guide is the world-renowned authority in genuine Five-Star service, and Chileno Bay Resort & Residences, Auberge Resorts Collection is the latest addition to its prestigious annual Star Rating list, defined as “outstanding, often iconic properties with virtually flawless service and amazing facilities.” Properties were inspected prior to the pandemic and when regional restrictions allowed for the safe return of guests.

Chileno Bay Resort & Residences, Auberge Resorts Collection is nestled along a protected cove on the most desirable beach in Los Cabos with swimmable waters and pristine coral reefs. The resort is a free-spirited contemporary playground with an open-air aesthetic that blurs the line between indoor and outdoor Baja-style living. With unobstructed views of sunset and sunrise, the brand new rooftop three- four- and five-bedroom Sky Villas are designed to host families and groups in  a modern setting. The villas come fully equipped with kitchens, ample communal spaces, expansive rooftop terraces with a private pool and fireplace, and private outdoor showers plus a large soaking tub. 

The Auberge Spa at Chileno Bay is inspired by the rich healing traditions of Baja—from the tranquil waters in the protected cove steps away to the calming dry air in the desert canyons just beyond. The wellness-oriented space harnesses a range of healing elements, noticeable in treatments like the signature Spa Journey, which begins in a refreshing mist alcove before winding through a salt inhalation room and soaking in the reflexology pool. With floor-to-ceiling windows for taking in inspiring views, the fitness program also emphasizes the transformative power of nature, whether during a core-strengthening routine in the studio or a heart-pumping class right on the beach.

“These 2021 award winners are a testament to the resiliency of the hospitality industry,” said Filip Boyen, CEO of Forbes Travel Guide. “During an unprecedented time, these top properties adapted to numerous adversities all while maintaining high service levels and ensuring the health security of their guests and staff.”
