Las Ventanas al Paraiso, Los Cabos, Mexico

Have you ever thought of taking a luxury holiday with that something extra than your own backyard swimming pool?

Los Cabos is a hot destination for 2015 with an selection of amazing ultra-luxury hotels and resorts. It’s a trend among newly built ultra-luxury resorts to impress guests with hotel rooms that feature their own private plunge pools. And let’s face it, nothing beats watching the sunset over cocktails on your private pool terrace, even if you only go swimming occasionally.

Guaranteed to make you feel like a celeb, offering horizon views, private villas with in-ground infinity pools and even poolside butlers to bring you pre-loaded iPods, and lemongrass icy poles and oversized fluffy towels.

Here are my top five in Mexico’s finest:

This luxury hotel is favoured by celebrities including George Clooney and Cameron Diaz, and with a spectacular infinity pool like this you can see why. Pool Butlers are on hand to cool guests with mists of frosted Evian spray and cold towels, serve complimentary refreshments – ranging from frozen chocolate sorbet cups to lemon grass popsicles – and bring them oversized fluffy towels. They’ll even bring you a pre-loaded iPod!

One&Only boast two gorgeous infinity edge pools. The Vista Pool is for adults only and features flowing waterfalls and a swim up bar – the perfect place to relax in a serene atmosphere and enjoy the warm Mexican sun. Agua Pool is perched on a bluff overlooking the sea and features a waterfall and a meandering river, and is perfect for families or couples. Keep your eyes peeled for Jennifer Aniston, who regularly stays here.

Flowing into the horizon of the vast Pacific Ocean the edges of Pedregal’s glistening infinity pool create a relaxing oasis. If you’re seeking privacy, then enjoy the spectacular plunge pool in your room, with unhindered views of the Pacific Ocean. Beachfront Suites feature an in-ground infinity plunge pool with a warming fire pit that can be directly accessed from your bedroom or bathroom.

This stunning luxury resort is tucked between two scenic bluffs on the Baja peninsula. You could easily pass the days lounging by the infinity pool soaking up the beautiful Baja Sun. Los Cabos boast 350 days a year of sun, so there’s rarely a bad day to be poolside. Resort staff offer refreshing treats every hour, such as fresh fruit or icy poles.

Secrets Marquis

Sun seekers can choose from one of three infinity pools with panoramic views over the ocean at Secrets Marquis, an Adults-Only resort. You might even get lucky and spot dolphins, jumping rays and whales. If you’re seeking privacy, relax poolside in your Oceanfront Casita’s Private Pool.
