Vista Encantada Spa Resort & Residences in Cabo San Lucas, Mexico is the prime getaway.
The harshest reality of professionally reviewing five-star luxury properties is that you quickly become immune to their splendor. Before you know it, this idolized profession becomes just that–work.
However, I recently stay at Vista Encantada Spa Resort & Residences, the meticulous newly-opened piece of paradise in the resort city of Cabos San Lucas. This visit entirely regenerated my spirit. After all, it would be difficult to not feel at peace at this exclusive and tranquil property. It is ultimate retreat from the Cabos chaos energy nearby.
Nothing is more soul-soothing than a backstroke in one of the resort’s rooftop infinity pools. Picture it: swimming under the canvas of the sprawling Mexican sky, the surrounding Pacific Ocean’s breeze cooling the harsh air, the unobstructed views of the famed Land’s End rock formation in the distance.
Vista Encantada Suites
The elegance in Vista Encantada’s interior is a seamless melange between traditional Mexican color palettes and smooth contemporary finishes. An all-suite property, the “smallest” living arrangement, is a one-bedroom suite, which features a master bedroom with a King bed. It also boasts a living area with a full kitchen, sitting and dining area, and an accompanying lounge area.
The most spacious suite option at Vista Encantada is reminiscent of a house–features four bedrooms with full bathrooms, a spacious living room, dining area with full kitchen, private balcony with a plunge pool. Best of all, it has unobstructed Pacific Ocean views.
The Milagro Spa
The Milagro Spa is the optimal sanctuary to indulge in unique treatments and remedies carefully curated with Mexican wisdom of herbs and plants to help heal and rejuvenate the body. I indulged in the Pacific Mare Signature Ritual, which delicately combines warmth from an ancient Ayurvedic warm oil and the cooling sensation to dually relax and ease muscle tension (which, after countless laps in the infinity pool, I certainly needed!)
The spa also boasts a variety of couple’s treatments. These include a lighted candle drip massage and a romantic aromatherapy experience, including champagne and strawberries, of course.
Vista Encantada Cuisine
The gastronomic delights of Vista Encantada make it worth a visit on its own. A stay is incomplete without digesting the panoramic views and signature dishes, including creative takes of fish platters, at Mestizo del Mar. Wannabe mermaids like myself will adore the swim-up bar and grill at Atico Rooftop Pool and Bar. Those who prefer a little spice in their bite will flock to Los Riscos Mesquite Grill and Bar for authentic Mexican dishes and zesty margaritas
To promote surrounding local businesses, the hotel also has a unique Golden Zone program that invites guests to use their meal plans at local restaurants. These include a local steakhouse and sushi restaurant.
Staying Fit at Vista Encantada
No guilt trips needed after indulging in all these tasting offerings, however. There are plenty of complimentary fitness activities to enjoy. Take advantage of perhaps the prettiest gym you’ll witness, located on the property’s roof, and with views of the sea below. A horseback riding program allows guests to experience the stark and drastic desert-like surroundings of the resorts, trotting through trails sprinkled with cacti.
Whether pursuing an active holiday or hoping to escape from the chaos of everyday life, the distinguishes hospitality, creative delicious experiences, world-class amenities, and lovely spa makes Vista Encantada Spa Resort & Residences the obvious choice on your next Los Cabos getaway.
