Relax and Recharge: The Perfect Spa Day in Los Cabos
With its pristine sands, shimmering Pacific waters, and dramatic stone arch, Cabo San Lucas is one of the most scenic destinations on Earth. Now, thanks to the five-star wellness offerings at Waldorf Astoria Los Cabos Pedregal, the resort has also become one of the world’s most relaxing destinations. Explore this luxe property’s incredible spa, from grottoes to a saltwater meditation pool, using the one-day itinerary we’ve conveniently compiled below.
The Waldorf Astoria Spa is partly inspired by the ocean — so start your day with one of two sea-view yoga courses offered as a part of the property’s wellness program. Our seasoned instructors will teach you the asanas associated with Hatha, Vinyasa, Ashtanga, or Restorative styles of yoga, all in a beachfront palapa with a thatched roof. You can alternatively enjoy beachfront yoga as part of a group class for beginners and intermediate students.
Now that you’ve warmed up your body, you’ll get so much more out of your Waldorf Astoria Spa signature treatment . Try The Intention, which pairs a massage inspired by Mexican folk healing (curanderismo) with an energy-cleansing ritual and craniosacral therapy. Other options feature add-ons like a scalp treatment, a honey-facial mask, cold marble stones from Baja, and more. Whichever you choose, it will begin with a pampering foot-cleansing ritual.
Having completed your wellness treatment, it’s time to experience the wet area. Take in exquisite aquatic design by the illustrious Sylvia Sepelli while bathing in one of the whirlpools or grottos, or while you detox in the sauna, steam room, or ice room. Follow your hydrotherapy circuit with a healing soak in the saltwater meditation pool, accessible directly from your treatment room.
Once you’ve dried off, proceed to the salon. A stylist will wash and blow out your hair or provide a nail service such as a polish change, a French manicure, or the sumptuous rose-crystal pedicure. Another luxe service, the Indigenous Detox pedicure, includes a bath in an herbal-infused tub, a sea-salt scrub, and an herbal mud wrap.
The moon is the other source of inspiration for the Waldorf Astoria Spa — so when you’ve finished taking advantage of the wellness center itself, at the end of the day, enjoy the moon-night meditation that also comes with the Yoga Retreat. Or, if you haven’t opted to add on this package, float back to your room or suite and fall asleep to the sounds of the ocean, just steps away.
