Cabo San Lucas, Mexico—Reported by Coleman Bentley for Elite Traveler, the private jet lifestyle magazine
Both Capella Pedregal and its guests are currently basking in the glow of south-of-the-border sun, guests because that is what they come to beautiful Cabo San Lucas to do and the resort because it was recently honored by two 2012 World’s Best Awards. Being named one of the “Top Resorts in Mexico” was just the tip of the proverbial pina-colada, however, as Capella Pedregal’s Auriga spa also earned the title of the “World’s Best Hotel Spa,” aptly recognized as a slice of paradise in, well, paradise.
Dedicating itself to personalized service and unparalleled luxury, Capella Pedregal lies at the feet of Pedregal Mountain, a five-minute walk from downtown Cabo San Lucas. The resort, accessible only through a private tunnel entrance in Pedregal Mountain (admit it, everyone loves the James Bond treatment), features 96 rooms and suites, each with one or two private pools, spread across a 24-acre estate that offers spectacular views of the Pacific Ocean. The Auriga Spa, however, is what truly pushes Capella Pedregal’s relaxtion levels from the sublime to the ridiculously rich.
Auriga spas feature four signature treatments, which are adapted to reflect local ingredients and culture. The treatments have been designed to reflect the varying energies of the lunar cycle and include a massage, exfoliation, facial and wrap. Based on the phases of the moon, the treatments encourage guests to attune their wellness routines to the rhythms of nature. Each treatment is dedicated to a particular phase of the moon: New Moon, Full Moon, Waxing Moon and Waning Moon and will traditionally be suggested when the treatment corresponds to the moon’s particular stage.
On top of everything else, Capella Pedregal also offers three unforgettable dining establishments, each evoking a different nuance of authentic Baja atmosphere. Complementing stunning landscapes and the world’s best spa experience with the vibrant flavors of a Central American cuisine empire, this one-of-a-kind resort has crafted a perfect warm-weather getaway for the fall.
