Whale watching season has officially begun, and Los Cabos, Mexico, is among the world’s best destinations to experience the natural wonder. But what if you could skip the boat ride and catch a glimpse of the majestic giants from the comfort of your hotel room? Well, you can do that at the newly opened Nobu Hotel Los Cabos.

The oceanfront property boasts unprecedented access to serene whale watching as each suite has near panoramic views of the Pacific and the whales that swim within. The room is even outfitted with binoculars to get an up-close look at the wildlife.

“Los Cabos will always be among the world’s top destinations for whale watching, and Nobu Hotel Los Cabos wanted to make a once-in-a-lifetime experience available without ever leaving the shore,” Felix Schlokat, General Manager of Nobu Hotel Los Cabos, told Departures. “Top suites are outfitted with near 360-views of the Pacific and binoculars in hand’s reach, offers unlimited access to whale watching from the moment guests wake up.”

Of course, that’s just one of the many amenities you receive during your stay. The suites also feature exclusive Nobu beds, butler service, and a Red Flower bath ritual. Plus, it offers in-room dining from Nobu and Malibu Farm, one of the property’s organic and sustainably-sourced farm-to-table restaurants.

Elsewhere you’ll find all of the zen elements the Nobu brand is known for, including a minimalist-designed pool area, glass balconies so as not to interrupt the ocean views, and a spa with a water circuit and experiential shower. So, it’s no wonder that stars are already flocking to the resort. Leonardo DiCaprio and Allison Janney stayed during the opening hosted by co-founders Robert De Niro, Nobu Matsuhisa, and Meier Teper while Ashlee Simpson and Evan Ross were spotted lounging poolside this week.

But the best part has to be the location on the southernmost tip of the Baja Peninsula. This makes for not only total seclusion from nearby properties, but also a prime spot for whale watching.
