It’s luxury redefined, but accessible luxury, thanks to our trusty points and miles strategy.

 Our days were filled with the kind of activities that make you pinch yourself to make sure you’re not dreaming. From private cocktail classes that turned us into mixology masters to unforgettable whale-watching excursions, every moment was a blend of thrill and relaxation. And the service? Unparalleled. Whether it was the daily delivery of chips and guac to our rooms or the seamless handling of special requests, the Waldorf Astoria Los Cabos made us feel like royalty.
