One of the main characteristics of The Spa by The Ocean is the integration of luxury with the environment and respect for the traditions of Baja California Sur. Even the names of the spa experiences are from the ancient Cochimí language. This is how the concept of an open, natural and ancestral spa was born.
Grand Solmar at Rancho San Lucas, the newest property in the Solmar Hotels and Resorts collection, is pleased to announce its newest amenity – The Spa by the Ocean.
The architectural firm HKS Miami, in conjunction with Landscape TBG, Dallas, TX and Studio Design by RSL, oversaw combining the magnificent natural environment with the functionality required by The Spa by the Ocean.
The design of the resort preserves as much of the natural environment as possible. A special emphasis is placed on using native plants, particularly old trees and cacti. Beauty and functionality are combined in the landscaping through the creation of watering holes to attract local species, from birds and hares to deer and bobcats, while simultaneously creating pleasant oases for the guest.
Materials such as palm branches, recycled wood, brass and limestone in harmony with the cardones cactus and trees of the region generate a sense of visual tranquility from the moment of arrival. Relaxation is immediate. The sound of water from the fountains, the waves of the sea, and the singing of the birds allow you to naturally clear your mind and prepare for your treatment.
The transition areas highlight the large Jacuzzi spa with stones that emulate the blue of the Sea of Cortez combined with Talavera pottery and Venetian mosaics in green tones to provide a touch of the local landscape.
Personal attention is the most important element. Every person and everybody need its own space, time and rhythm to achieve complete relaxation.
The five exclusive cabins are suitable for all services and offer a variety of treatments. In addition, every cabin has a terrace where each sensory experience culminates with culinary samples.
“For us, service is what makes people feel special. All the attention of our practitioners is oriented toward the best treatment for each individual. A personal valet and professional therapists are there to meet all your needs. They possess a natural warmth that will make you feel special.”
The Spa by the Ocean is a different kind of space. Located on the Pacific Ocean side in the Grand Solmar at Rancho San Lucas, The Spa has been designed to deliver a sensory experience completely outdoors.
“Luxury is giving yourself the pleasure of experiencing something different, something that enriches you internally and elevates you.” Ricardo Adame, Spa Director by The Ocean at Rancho San Lucas.
One of the unique spa experiences is the Tama Wakoe therapy. In the Cochimi language, it means “couple.” This special 80-minute massage for couples is intimate and relaxing and uses a sequence of movements that somehow manages to increase the amount of trust both feel for each other. The massage is followed with a culinary tasting by Executive Chef Hector Lucas.
