The Desert Spa
A Unique Spa Experience
A Unique Spa Experience
Situated on the tip of the Baja Peninsula, the Desert Spa basks under a bright blue sky surrounded by the Sea of Cortez and the mountains. This remarkable setting creates an ideal environment for a memorable spa experience.
Our 31, 000 square foot spa and fitness center offers a host of indulgences to refresh the mind, body, and soul. Guests can enjoy massages, body wraps, facials, hydrotherapy, couples’ experiences, and a full-service beauty salon, as well as a la carte services and special spa packages.
With the Desert Spa’s exclusive line of desert-inspired body products, guests will be wrapped, bathed and pampered with extracts of agave, lime, nopal, melon, and vanilla. Using fruit and herb extracts native to the Baja California area, the spa’s body products have been specifically developed for the restorative and nutritive powers they possess – and for the enjoyment, they provide spa guests.
Designed in Mexican Hacienda style, the Desert Spa insets into Los Cabos’ timeless merger of desert and sea by complementing its natural setting with earthy tones, ample natural light, and the scents and flavors of Baja. Among its spectrum of contemporary amenities are generous hydrotherapy centers for men and women including a spacious Jacuzzi, cold plunge pool, cold pressure showers, body temperature pool, steam room, and sauna.
How do I schedule a spa service?
You may visit the spa personally to book an appointment or you may dial ext. 686 from your room and speak with one of our spa concierges.
What time should I arrive for my spa service?
We encourage you to arrive a minimum of 30 minutes prior to your treatment and enjoy our extensive hydrotherapy circuit to relax before your spa service. Arriving late will limit the time for your treatment, thus lessening its effectiveness and your pleasure. Whether you arrive on time or not, your treatment will end at the scheduled time so that the next scheduled guest is not delayed. Please note that if you arrive late, you will still be charged the full price of your treatment.
What should I wear for my massage/spa service?
We provide spa robes and slippers for your comfort while at the Desert Spa. It is customary to wear just your robe to your service, although undergarments may be worn if preferred. You will be given the opportunity to disrobe and cover yourself in privacy. During all treatments, the body is fully draped except for the area being addressed. The separate men’s and women’s spa areas are clothing-optional environments.
What to bring?
We recommend that you do not bring valuables with you, as the spa and hotel will not be responsible for any item lost or stolen during your visit to our spa. Since the Desert Spa accepts room charge as a form of payment, there is no need to carry cash or credit cards to the facility.
How should I spend my “relaxing time” after I check in for my service?
Enjoy the “healing water” ritual utilizing our whirlpools, cold plunge, pressure showers, sauna, and steam room. Being in a relaxed state before your spa service will allow you to enjoy and benefit from your treatment much more. The spa attendant will escort you to the relaxation room at the time of your appointment. All guests are required to shower before using the wet areas and/or having a spa service.
When do I pay?
For your own convenience, we will ask you to sign your bill before your spa treatment so that you will not have to wait in line to pay once you are ready to leave the facility.
What is the customary gratuity?
A 15% service charge will be automatically added to your bill. This amount is given to your service provider(s). Additional gratuities are welcomed, but not expected. If you feel that your service provider(s) did not perform to your desired standard, let us know after your treatment and we will cancel the 15% gratuity.
What do I do when my massage/spa service is over?
We suggest that you drink water or our special tea to hydrate your body and enable your system to flush out toxins (this is especially important after a body wrap). You are welcome to sit in one of our lounge chairs and/or use our hydrotherapy pools for as long as you desire. Take your time. Enjoy the moment!
