Acre Resort Mexico Hotel

San José del Cabo, Mexico

Under a canopy of swaying palms, Acre is a treetop retreat with all the trappings of a boutique hotel. Tucked in the verdant foothills of Mexico’s San Jose del Cabo region, the resort – dotted with fragrant citrus trees – gives you plenty of room to reconnect with nature. With 10 hectares of farmland, Acre’s award-wining rustic restaurant and craft cocktail bar breathes new life into ‘farm-to-fork’ dining, with the majority of ingredients sourced on site, for the likes of crab ravioli and chilpachole sauce or roasted cauliflower with green seaweed mole. Each of the 13 boho-chic treehouses comes with thatched walls, rainfall shower and a dreamy private terrace to sip on small-batch mezcal as the sun sinks below the foliage. Wake up to flaky pastries, strong-brew coffee and yoga in the mango orchard, take a dip in the solar-heated pool, then explore the grounds to spot peacocks, rescued goats and donkeys, and pups awaiting adoption through the Acre dog rescue programme. Beyond, surfing, scuba diving and whale watching await.
