The Waldorf Astoria Los Cabos Pedregal resort, carved into the mountainside of the exclusive Los Cabos Pedregal Community, is a true haven for your being. The resort mesmerizes guests with their 5-star services and lavish accommodations, but their spa in particular is an experience that magnetizes the mind and the body into harmony.
Speaking from personal experience and crossing it with online reviews and award-winning recognitions, there is no arguing that at the Waldorf Astoria Spa, you relax into a deep renewal, rejuvenating yourself and tapping into the natural healing culture of Mexico. You see, the Waldorf Astoria Spa, is a unique spa concept based entirely on the cycles of the moon. Just as the different phases of the moon impact the ocean tide that lays right beside the resort, it also affects the body in specific ways. Depending on the moon’s lunar phase, the spa adapts their scents, techniques, and treatments to align visitors with the natural rhythm of the celestial body.
The spa has six signature moon treatments that range from 90 to 180 minutes. They also offer a special aromatherapy blend for each moon, using essential oils that promotes both mental and physical being.
