Cabo San Lucas – Health and wellness reign at Capella Pedregal which is home to Auriga spa, regarded as one of the top of its ilk globally, with praise coming from prestigious news outlets such as Travel + Leisure and TripAdvisor which named Auriga as one of “The World’s Greatest Hotel Spas.”

Located on one of Cabo’s most coveted parcels of land, the award-winning spa’s lunar concept is complemented by rejuvenating signature Baja-based treatments with added access to a natural healer and spiritual “curanderismo”

Auriga has unveiled new treatments to its dynamic menu including indigenous Mexican experiences and a pool-side “quench menu” so that guests can lounge in the sun and re-charge with re-energizing treatments:

•The art of couples massage - Learn the technique of giving a relaxing massage from our experienced therapist.

•Magical stones - Experience the magic contact of the stones, and receive the healing power with this special massage that connects you with your favorite stone.

•Baja flavor - This massage and body treatment will bring out the best of the earth in Baja utilizing damiana herbs, aloe vera and honey bee.

•Ancient traditional massage - This experience transports you to ancient times based on the Mexican traditions of their ancestors, where they performed massages using elements of the Mexican traditions such as overflow, suction cups, lemons and herbs to create a unique and healing experience.

The pool-side menu features:

•Hand and Arm Quench - Ultra hydrating sugar and sea salt infused in a rich shea butter scrub massaged into your hands and arms, soothing fatigued fingers.

•Foot Quench – Your Auriga therapist begins with an exfoliating and hydrating scrub to smooth and soften your feet, followed by a soothing cool towel. Organic shea butter balm is massaged into your soles and toes to renew and revive.

•Scalp Quench - A potent dose of luxuriously warm antioxidant Vitamin E oil is drizzled and massaged into your scalp and hair. The treatment continues with a 10 minute steam, and ends with a reviving cool water rinse. Hair is left shiny, silky, and hydrated.

•Back Quench - Pressure points and massage. Scrub optional.

•Quench on the Go (Complimentary) - Enjoy a complimentary scent journey and have organic quench products delivered to you poolside, or have them waiting for you in your suite.

All Quench on the Go services can be scheduled for 15 minutes, 30 minutes or combined to create your perfect poolside ritual.

“At Auriga spa, we are constantly looking for new, authentic ingredients and techniques to maximize our treatments.  We are so fortunate that our location in the heart of Baja provides us with a source for indigenous ingredients known for its exceptional healing and wellness powers,” said Vanessa Infante, Auriga spa Director. “Our legacy is not only to pamper our guests, but to leave a lasting memory of their experience here as well.”

Auriga at Capella Pedregal combines the spa’s signature approach to wellness, based on the four phases of the moon, with treatments inspired by the sea and authentic Mexican folk healing traditions for a spa experience that is pure Baja. Auriga is also the first Mexican spa for world-acclaimed spa designer Sylvia Sepielli, who has drawn heavily on the local natural healing culture, or curanderismo, to create her unique vision for Auriga at Capella Pedregal.

Guests can experience these exceptional treatments in settings that range from luxurious treatment “pods” at the heart of the resort to a seaside palapa for yoga, meditation and massages on the beach.  Guests can also arrange for a private consultation with Auriga’s spa guardian, a local healer who creates healing tonics concocted from local herbs and combines them with traditional massage and energy work to bring harmony, peace and heighten the spa-goer’s sense of well-being.

In addition to Auriga, there is the Salon by Julien Farel. Stylist Julien Farel has brought the world-renowned beauty services of his Madison Avenue salon to Cabo with an exclusive salon adjacent to Auriga. Guests can avail themselves of an array of hair styling and treatments, nail services and make-up applications delivered with the same impeccable attention to detail that has attracted the world’s most famous faces and influencers through his midtown Manhattan doors.

 To further keep your fitness levels high, there is the Auriga’s fitness center which is open 24-hours a day and includes an intimate personal training gym area for guests who travel with their own trainer, which can be outfitted prior to the guest’s arrival with all the tools and equipment the trainer requires. Capella Pedregal can also provide guests with accredited personal trainers (fees apply).
