Montage Los Cabos is one of the newest luxury resorts to enter the region; having opened its doors late summer 2018. Nestled between stunning cliffs that encircle Santa Maria Bay, the beach at Montage boasts clear and calm waters, perfect for swimming and snorkeling. Located on the corridor between San Jose del Cabo and Cabo San Lucas, it’s well positioned for guests to visit either of these destination towns during their stay.
All of the 122 suites afford guests spectacular views of the water, often including whale sightings if you are lucky! The suites are well equipped and incredibly quiet and peaceful, perfect for light sleepers.
At the heart of this beautiful resort, Spa Montage offers guests an oasis of calm with a tranquil pool and Jacuzzi surrounded by loungers in the mixed area in addition to separate hydrotherapy areas for males and females equipped with a steam room, Jacuzzi and an invigoratingly cold plunge pool, maintained at 10-12 Celsius.
Spa services include massages, facials, body treatments and salon services; however, to fully experience the best of Spa Montage, I recommend experiencing one of their signature rituals. The 120-minute Jewel Of Baja journey starts with a footbath and a natural sea sponge body-cleanse. Damiana flower and agave honey then replenish the skin during a luxurious wrap, while a cooling mask refreshes the face; a second therapist then joins to perform a synchronized four-handed massage incorporating hip-stretches to relieve tension throughout the back.
Facial experiences at Spa Montage include organic skincare brand Tata Harper; utilizing muscle relaxing neuropeptides to reduce wrinkles and active ingredients to encourage collagen production. Expertly applied, the floral aromas stimulate the senses while an invigorating facial massage activates the deep muscles of the face, leaving the skin feeling lifted and energized.
Yoga is offered daily at 7am for early risers and instructors each offer a different and unique experience, some focusing on technique and form while others provide a calm, centered morning flow with adjustments to help you deepen your practice.
The restaurants at Montage Los Cabos serve fresh cuisine of the highest quality in each of their two stylish spaces; Marea, overlooking the ocean and Mezcal, in the center of the resort. Try the tasting menu at Mezcal for an opportunity to sample the best their chef has to offer and don’t miss the gazpacho and blackened fish at Marea.
