14 Treatment Rooms

Luxury wellness seekers return time and again to The Spa at Esperanza, part of Esperanza, An Auberge Resort in Cabo San Lucas, Mexico. It’s easy to see why: Step through the massive wooden garden gates and enter a lush tropical paradise complete with the signature water passage experience, which includes a warm-spring soaking pool, steam caves and a cool waterfall rinse. Use the water passage to stimulate your lymphatic system and loosen stiff muscles in preparation for your treatment.

The 14-room spa is known the world over for its pampering treatments using local and organic products (it's the only hotel spa to carry the Marie Veronique Organic line) that draw from plants and ingredients native to its Baja Peninsula home. Much like the resort itself, guests of the spa are met by architecture that complements the natural beauty of the surroundings, including a palapa-style roof and original Mexican artwork throughout the space.

A robust array of treatments form a well-rounded menu, ranging from Baja Lime Brightening and Lightening facials and beachside massages to Sol Relief, an avocado-based treatment geared towards revitalizing sun-damaged or burnt skin. Plus, complimentary fitness classes lend a holistic feel to the wellness offerings. Each week, the spa provides more than 60 such classes, including sunset and sunrise yoga, zumba, TRX and salsa dancing. If that sounds right up your alley, plan to attend one of the spa's Fitness Retreats, where it brings in expert instructors from all over North America to conduct a series of complimentary classes (both group and private).

Treatment areas feature lush private gardens with latilla canopies for shade as well as outdoor showers. Guests are encouraged to linger after treatments on the spa patio with aguas frescas, made-to-order juices in flavors such as watermelon ginger and cucumber chili pepper.
