The modern Mediterranean rooms at this extravagant resort have huge beds and lavish bathrooms. A-list celebrities flock here for the unparalleled service. The nightly turn-down service includes your choice of aromatherapy oil, and the housekeeping staff tailors your sewing kit to match your wardrobe (although people who can afford to stay here never sew on their own buttons). The pool attendants, meanwhile, would rather die than let you adjust your own umbrella. The eateries include The Restaurant (which has a dress code), the oceanside Sea Grill, and a tequila and ceviche bar. The excellent spa uses products made from blends of Baja's plants, as well as various native remedies and healing rituals.

"It's pure bliss" at this Mexican-Mediterranean resort with desert tones and snaking pools. Hand-carved cedar doors open to suites with a garden or Pacific view; blue duvets and fresh flowers accentuate the pale limestone walls. At Sea Grill, meat and seafood are cooked over wood-burning grills. Dine on the beach during the full moon accompanied by music from a flamenco guitar duo.
