The Desert Spa

Review by Spa & Wellness MexiCaribe

Paradise awaits you in beautiful, sunny and safe Cabo San Lucas. Located at the very tip of the Baja peninsula on the western side of mainland Mexico is a plethora of pleasures in all its forms. With pro-designed golf courses, outstanding fishing, gourmet restaurants, 5-star resorts and activities to suit the most discriminate traveler, put Cabo San Lucas at the top of your vacation list.

Want to just get away from it all? Cloud nine could not be any closer. The Villa Group comprises three adjoining properties in Cabo san Lucas, Villa del Palmar, Villa la Estancia and Villa del Arco, each with its own personality, but all have access to the largest spa facility in all of the Baja. With 31,000 square feet of the finest amenities offered anywhere, this monumental multi-level structure is heaven on earth. These days, stress reduction and relaxation have become a necessity of life. Here you can take advantage of every blissful experience you’ve ever heard about.

From the moment you step through the glass doors, you will be whisked away on one of the most pleasurable experiences of any vacation you’ve ever had. A friendly attendant will escort you up the elevator to the dressing rooms where you will be assigned a locker and key. Wrap yourself in the luxurious robe and slide your footsies into the slippers provided. Now you are ready to indulge in a myriad of decisions. The common hydrotherapy room reminds one of what the Roman baths might have been like with its floor level hot tub that you can just walk into and plunge down into the hot, bubbling water. Or, you can start with a cold water pool to awaken the senses or just relax in the tepid pool. To cleanse the respiratory system while conditioning the skin, opt for the intense humidity of the steam room or the dry heat of the sauna.

You can take advantage of a list of spa services from massages, facials, detoxifying remedies, to a day at the full-service beauty salon, but for a really outstanding adventure, try one of the signature services such as the Piña Colada Body Facial. What a relaxing and indulgent way to spend an afternoon or morning in beautiful Baja California Sur. You’ll begin with an enticingly sweet full body scrub with fresh papaya and pineapple extracts. This is followed by a hydrating mineral mask with pineapple, mangos and aloe vera. This wonderful experience of the senses ends with a body massage with a “facial quality” coconut milk formula. (80 minutes). Another exciting and enticing option is the Margarita Salt Glow and Massage. The Sportsman Combo was designed exclusively for men that comprised of several select services including a facial. Whatever you choose, you will leave feeling relaxed and pampered. There are 19 individual rooms including 2 suites especially designed for couples complete with Jacuzzi tub. The Desert Spa is located in the 220-suite, 5-star Villa del Arco resort, adjacent to a 4,500 square foot fitness center offering special exercise classes and personal training. Couples, bridal parties, and families are welcome.
