Top 5 Spa Getaways in Los Cabos

Last updated January 12, 2024

Gone are the days of vacationing in Los Cabos, Mexico, for spring break, margaritas and Cabo Wabo nightlife.

Located at the very southern tip of the Baja Peninsula, Los Cabos, meaning “the capes” in Spanish, is often shortened to Cabo. The resurgence of luxury, high-end hotels has paved a new path for tourism here.

Spa getaways, wellness retreats and wellness resorts are taking over this area of Mexico. The various wellness resorts, farm-to-table restaurants and experiences make Los Cabos a prime wellness destination.

Along with the influx of wellness and sustainable offerings in Los Cabos, luxury and high-quality spas are coming with it.

In this article, we’re highlighting five of the top spas in Cabo San Lucas to relax, restore and indulge. Beyond the price tag and lux services, we’re also basing our selection on local healing traditions that provide an authentic and extraordinary experience.

1. Waldorf Astoria, Los Cabos Pedregal

Formerly known as the Resort at Pedregal, the Waldorf Astoria is an intimate environment to hide away and stay. To arrive at this spa getaway, you must enter via tunnel. How cool is that?

At this spa getaway, guests can choose to stay in casitas, villas, or private homes.

The Spa at Waldorf Astoria

Equally private is the Spa at the Waldorf Astoria Los Cabos Pedregal. A mouthful to say- we know- but the Spa is worth it! There are ten private treatment rooms.

Fun fact: the organic treatments are inspired by the lunar cycle, the sea and authentic Mexican healing.

We recommend the Indigenous Herbal Detox. This detox aids the body in releasing toxins through the use of potent plants. It is followed by an herbal mud wrap and the Ancient Massage. The Ancient Massage utilizes lemon and herb-infused scents for relieving tension. Feel your muscles relax as the massage therapist uses ancient wellness techniques that have passed down through generations.

2. Se Spa at Grand Velas Los Cabos

The Grand Velas Los Cabos is a massive establishment. The SE Spa alone is 35,000 square feet. Coined an “aquatic paradise” by Forbes magazine, we think it’s the ultimate underwater cave adventure.

Exclusive to Mexico, the Tequila Cream Massage will not get you drunk — but it will certainly energize your body and mind.

Disclaimer: there is a tequila cream-tasting at the end of this treatment.

The Blue Agave Massage

Are you familiar with Blue Agave? It is the plant used in creating Mexican tequila. During your stay you should try the Blue Agave Candle Massage. This massage offers serenity of the mind and body. It is known for reducing inflammation while restoring and moisturizing the skin with a light-pressure massage.

3. Esperanza, An Auberge Resort

The Esperanza wellness resort is a genuine place for guests to restore, relax and rejuvenate. This spa getaway sits on 17 acres of pristine land that overlooks the Sea of Cortez.

The resort’s spa synchronizes nature and healing. Outdoor and indoor spaces seamlessly integrate for the treatments. The integration of the two brings the “outside in.” All in all, the Spa at Esperanza is a journey through a desert oasis of well-being.

Pasaje de Agua

Before your therapy, arrive 30 minutes early to cleanse in the “pasaje de agua.” Pasaje de agua is an outdoor water therapy experience combining hot, cold, steam, sauna amenities.

Insider tip: two favorite local therapies on the menu are the Avocado Butter pedicure and the Papaya Mango Body Polish.

4. Viceroy Los Cabos

The location alone is stunning in its architecture and decor. Viceroy, Los Cabos is best known for their photos of the “Nest.” The Nest sits in the middle of the property just past the entrance.

The Viceroy is notably one of the most aesthetic spa getaways in Los Cabos. That being said, you will need an appointment or reservation to get past the lobby.

Our tip: book ahead for this one.

Tranquil Damiana

For a unique experience, check out the Tranquil Damiana. The Tranquil Damiana combines sensory sleep techniques, aromatherapy, music and sound healing and movement therapy.

Let’s switch it up. Are you looking for a group experience? The Cacao Ceremony is great for groups traveling together. The ceremony is native to the area. It is delicious and euphoric on many levels!

5. Montage Los Cabos

The Montage Los Cabos exudes feelings of balance and well-being. Warm hues of stone balanced by blue ocean waves make the Montage a picturesque spa getaway. Additionally the Montage has a modern appeal despite the foundational design of Mexican folklore.

The Californian Wildflower Massage

Are you in need of some spa treatment recommendations? We recommend the Californian Wildflower Massage. This massage is a vibrational treatment exclusively for the Spa Montage. The Californian Wildflower Massage is perfect for any guest that is in search of a revitalizing spa experience.

Do you sunbathe on the beach during your vacation? If so, we recommend the Sun Worshipper Recovery treatment. This spa treatment is the perfect indulgence after spending too many hours in the sun.

The Sun Worshipper Recovery Treatment

Soak your body in a mask of lavender and aloe to restore and heal the skin. The treatment also includes a foot massage. The foot massage is favored by many guests. This makes sense because every beachcomber’s feet are sore. Especially after walking through the sand with no shoes!
