With its beautiful sandy beaches, sizzling sun, and plentiful selection of luxury resorts, Los Cabos San Lucas, Mexico is the ideal place for a spa and fitness retreat. What better way to escape your daily grind than to take a long walk on the beach, pamper yourself with a full day of spa treatments, or melt your cares away in an infinity pool while you watch the sunset. It was hard to narrow down but these are our five top picks for a spa and fitness-filled getaway in Cabo:
1. Casa Dorada Los Cabos Resort & Spa
Located on the beautiful Medano Beach, Casa Dorada Los Cabos Resort & Spa is one of the best resorts in all of Cabo. We absolutely love the location on Medano Beach. While some beaches in Cabo can be rough, this one is the best for swimming, and the resort is just steps away from the marina, shopping, dining, and great places for entertainment. You don’t really even need to venture away from the resort if you don’t wish to with their on-site restaurant, bar and lounge, room service, gorgeous outdoor pool, spa, and fitness center. Everything you need to have a fun and relaxing vacation is right there!
The real highlight of the resort is Saltwater Spa. From the moment you enter, it has a way of making you feel like you’re oceans away from all your cares back home. It’s a wonderfully serene experience, too, having your own spa cabin. Not only does the spa offer luxurious spa treatments like massages and body wraps, it features a cold plunge pool, jacuzzi, sauna, steam room, and weight-training equipment.
2. Chileno Bay Resort & Residences, Auberge Resorts Collection
The Chileno Bay Resort & Residences is a stunning resort built for pleasure and relaxation. With three infinity pools, beachfront access to the Sea of Cortez, and on-site activities including snorkeling, hiking, and world class spa, you’ll never want to leave. Many guests come all the way to Cabo just to experience it for themselves. Its design is open and airy, showcasing the beautiful surroundings of the sea.
You begin your spa journey in a mist alcove, working your way into the salt inhalation room lined with healing pink Himalayan salt, and then to the reflexology pool for a relaxing soak. It’s 55 minutes of pure bliss. Plus, a full range of classes are offered such as spin class, water spin class, yoga, pilates, and personal training sessions. It’s no wonder the resort was voted #1 in Los Cabos by the Conde Nast Traveler Reader’s Choice Awards in 2017.
3. Pueblo Bonito Rose Resort & Spa
In desperate need of pampering? The Armonia Spa at Pueblo Bonito Rose Resort is just what the doctor ordered. The European-inspired 15,000-square-foot retreat has everything you need to detach and let your cares melt away, with 15 treatment rooms, couple’s room, steam rooms, cold water plunges, hot water pools, and jacuzzis. If that doesn’t sound fabulous enough, they offer a full suite of spa services, including massages, facials, spa rituals, manicures and pedicures – it’s no wonder it was named one of the Top 10 Hotel Spas of Mexico, Central, and South America by the readers of Travel + Leisure and one of the top 5 best spas in the world by Conde Nast Traveler Readers’ Choice Award.
4. ME Cabo by Melia
Just steps away from downtown Cabo on the Playa El Medano, ME Cabo by Melia is just the place for a spa and fitness retreat in Mexico. If pampering and relaxation is top priority, you’ll love their gym and award-winning YHI Spa, a relaxing oasis that specializes in holistic treatments that invigorate the senses and leave you feeling refreshed and recharged. The spa uses traditional Mexican ingredients like pitaya (dragon fruit) and the exclusive line of Pevonia spa and skincare treatments for their deep tissue massages, facials, body wraps, manicures and pedicures. For a truly unique spa experience, try their Temzcal spa ritual. It’s based on the ancient Mayan and Aztec sweat lodge ritual that allows you to release toxins through sweat and meditate with traditional practices. You probably won’t find it anywhere else.
5. Esperanza – Auberge Resorts Collection
The next place to set your sights on for your spa and fitness retreat is Esperanza. This beautiful resort offers 57 guest casitas and suites with a view of the ocean from every room. It’s situated in the private enclave of Punta Ballena, a superb location. We can’t think of a better way to experience the beauty of Cabo, with its breathtaking views of the Sea of Cortez.
When you’re not relaxing in the oceanfront infinity-edge pool, tanning on the private beach, or working out in the fitness center, you’ll definitely want to be at the award-winning spa. As you enter, you find yourself surrounded by a desert oasis, with traditional palapa roof that lets in the breeze and tropical plants. Take advantage of their detoxifying treatments while you’re here, or book their sun baked stone massage and cucumber lime facial – some of their most popular treatments.
