If you need a getaway from the popular Medano Beach and the individuals selling jewelry, hats, blankets and even dinnerware everywhere you turn, consider a spa treatment and day pass to relax. At the Casa Dorada Resort in Cabo San Lucas, Mexico, you can find the Saltwater Spa. Get massages, facials, beauty treatments and even fish therapy. Enjoy the spa’s amenities of a sauna, steam room, cool plunge pool and hot tub. Stay as long as you like. We did.
Two sports massages were scheduled for 9 AM and my friend and fellow entrepreneur, Nikki, could not wait. After a challenging day before getting into our accommodations, we were ready relax and boy, did we need it.
We were greeted and escorted by Arianna to behind the side doors of their reception desk. Thru those doors was a shallow pool with candles on islands and steps in between the walkway. It was automatically a soothing and calming environment.
Through another set of doors was the fruit-infused water station, the changing area with lockers, showers, bathrooms and large mirrors, sinks and stations to get ready prepped with deodorant, hairspray, combs, cotton swabs and more.
In the relaxation area, there were three beds with dividing curtains, four chairs with ottomans, a tea station, cool plunge pool, hot tub, steam room and sauna as already mentioned.
I was retrieved by my therapist, Alberto. He led me back to the shallow pool area and down another hallways where the other treatment rooms were. In my room, it was dimly lit and calming music was playing. Ready for the treatment, you can expect medium pressure and a lot of stretching. Prior to your treatment at check in, you may also select cream or oil products for your treatment. I went with the oil and it was perfect. If only the table was heated, then again I didn’t ask if it had that capability.
The hot tub was wonderful. Don’t mind the thermostat changing from 64 to 101 degrees. It was warm enough. Nikki enjoyed the cool plunge pool. I passed, along with the sauna and steam room as they aren’t my thing. The lounge chairs were comfortable and the roll pillow fit perfectly underneath our knees just as it did while we received our treatments. We slept well there until other guests didn’t practice proper spa etiquette in using their inside voices. The spa is a quiet and serene place. Be considerate to other guests paying $150+ for some time to relax.
Not having breakfast, I had ordered food to the spa. I ordered the steak fajitas and they were delicious with a lot of flavor. Be prepared to provide a credit card as it cannot be added onto your spa bill.
On a separate visit, Nikki and I tried the fish therapy. For $45, we had these little fish eat away at the dead skin on our feet that left them feeling very soft. Plus we received a massage during the treatment and a pina colada afterwards. I had Carmen and she really worked those knots in my shoulders, traps, neck and even my head. It was the perfect thing to get before going to the airport. Thank you, Carmen!
I have been to several spas and this would be my first one in Mexico. I would love to try them all! Wouldn’t you? Make time for to improve your mental health and yourself. You deserve it, I assure you.
