Esencia Wellness Spa

Los Cabos’ sanctuary of serenity

The sun-drenched serenity of the Baja peninsula meets sleek Japanese design at Esencia Wellness Spa, the tranquil retreat housed within the newly opened Nobu Hotel Los Cabos.

The 13-room sanctuary’s style takes advantage of Los Cabos’ abundant sunshine with plenty of large windows and a minimalist feel featuring light woods and white fabrics. An indoor/outdoor yoga area allows for alfresco stretching, and the hydrotherapy garden lets you soak up some rays while luxuriating in a cabana-covered Jacuzzi.

Inside, you’ll find plenty of Zen in the form of Asian-inspired therapies utilizing luxe NaturaBissé products. After a hydrating facial or muscle-melting massage, be sure to linger over a cup of tea or infused water in the open-air relaxation lounge — an extra dose of vitamin D is just the way to cap off your Mexican spa day.
Our Inspector's Highlights

  • Nobu’s signature Japanese Zen style lends itself beautifully to Esencia Wellness’ sun-splashed design. Filtered through oversized windows, natural light reflects off the light wood interiors to bathe the space in sunshine.
  • Making use of Los Cabos’ most popular feature, the idyllic weather, the spa offers plenty of opportunities for indoor/outdoor lounging. The walled relaxation courtyard provides privacy and sunlight, while the alfresco wet areas have myriad ways to cool off.
  • Make time to unwind in the spa’s outdoor hydrotherapy garden. The coed lounge features experiential showers, cabana-covered Jacuzzis, steam and sauna facilities and a hydrotherapy pool.
  • The 13,691-square-foot spa also plays host to a light-filled salon, equipped for all manner of primping and prepping for a night out. From makeup and waxing services to mustache-trimming for gents, the petite beauty counter does it all.
  • The airy gym follows the spa’s design lead with light woods and loads of windows. Hop on a stationary bike for a quick sweat session or visit the outdoor pavilion for a few sun salutations.
