Property Overview

Tucked away on the coastline of Puerto Los Cabos, Zadún is the first Ritz-Carlton Reserve in Mexico. Overlooking the Sea of Cortez, this desert-meets-ocean retreat is just ten minutes from downtown San José del Cabo but might as well be a world away. With the tranquility of a beachfront sanctuary complemented by the vibrancy of a rich, cultural hotspot, a magical experience awaits at Zadún.

Agent Tips

  • Torrejas are a must-try at El Barrio. Topped with homemade whipped cream and marmalade, fresh fruit, and piloncillo-based syrup, these are the Mexican version of French toast and are simply divine.
  • Each ground floor room features a large terrace with an outdoor shower.
  • Don’t miss the empanadas at Humo topped with homemade chimichurri sauce. Fun fact: each empanada has to have twelve folds to close it, otherwise the chef throws them away as her grandmother does in Argentina!
Rooms + Suites

Contemporary Mexican design.

Relaxed yet sophisticated, each of the property’s 113 thoughtful accommodations features contemporary touches. Custom furniture, natural materials, and delicate objects can be found in each room, creating a unique blend between modern design and Mexican artistry. For extra serenity, each king-bedded accommodation and ground-floor suite offers a private pool or plunge pool.

The world's only Savasana Sound Room.

In addition to the over 100 private heated pools included with some rooms and suites, Zadún also offers four pools to all guests: hydrotherapy, adults-only, El Barrio, and a whirlpool. A twenty-four-hour fitness center is available to guests featuring the latest equipment as well as a selection of fitness activities. A semi-Olympic-sized lap pool can also be found in the facility.

If that isn’t enough, Zadún has dedicated 29,000 square feet to wellness initiatives over at Alkemia Spa, which offers exclusive experiences and treatments using natural ingredients. Featuring the area’s largest hydrotherapy pool, a cozy Heat Temple, and the world’s only Savasana Sound Room, Alkemia Spa elevates your senses like never before.

Three distinct eateries.

The Reserve offers three unique culinary experiences sure to delight even the most discerning palate, with a wide selection of options from salads to seafood to vegan specialties. Humo, Zadún’s signature restaurant, is a South American grill with the essence of firewood infused in each plate. For the best in traditional and modern Mexican cuisine, El Barrio is an all-day dining spot serving vibrant and colorful dishes. Lastly, Equis showcases the bounty of the Sea of Cortes with a fresh catch of the day, featured in dishes from ceviches to maki rolls.

Well-known Tequila and Mezcal to lesser-known Raicilla and Bacanora.

Strikingly designed, Candil Agave Bar is one of the Reserve’s most treasured haunts. With a wide selection of Mexican spirits, each signature cocktail tells a story. Our favorites are A-Maiz-ing, made out of a corn-based spirit from Oaxaca and paying homage to a Mayan God, and Lumiére, a Tequila blanco-based cocktail in honor of The Lumiére brothers — the creators of modern cinema.
  • Who's it for?
    From couples to multigenerational families, friend groups to incentive retreats, and wellness-seekers to foodies, there is a place for everyone at Zadún. Activities are plentiful, accommodations are spacious and private, and amenities are best-in-class so no matter what type of vacation you seek, the Reserve has you covered.
  • Vibe
    A gateway to unsurpassed serenity in a peaceful, coastal sanctuary.
  • Location
    Zadún is located in the gated community of Puerto Los Cabos, thirty-five minutes from San Jose Del Cabo International Airport and just ten minutes from downtown. The private estate is steps away from the clubhouse of Puerto Los Cabos and a stone’s throw from some of the area’s best restaurants.
