Soak up tequila sunrise

YOU will never be troubled by gawking invaders when you stay at the Capella Pedregal resort outside Mexico's Cabo San Lucas.

The only way you can get into this beachside haven is by a private tunnel that runs several hundred metres through the heart of a mountain that divides sea and town.

And when it comes to pampering, Capella Pedregal seems to have it all, including 138 plunge pools (one for every room and suite plus a sprinkling of others around the grounds).

There is an in-house astronomer to discuss the night sky with guests, a resident Mexican folk healer who uses home-grown herbs to support emotional healing, a traditional Mexican kitchen that offers free private cooking lessons as well as private tequila tasting lessons with a "tequila master", a food and wine journal to record your favourite resort food and dining experiences for when you make a return visit, and a free A-list fitness trainer to keep you in shape . There's also 24-hour room service, a personal assistant for all guests during their stay and a driver to run you into town should you wish to dine there, go sport fishing or play golf.

And the cost? Start looking from A$612 a night for an ocean-view room with king bed, private terrace, and from $A1838 for an ocean-view deluxe twin bedroom suite.
