Occasionally we will be sent stories of spa experiences from our readers that are particularly memorable. We read about an experience at the Auriga spa in Cabo San Lucas, Mexico that reached that level of relaxation and revitalization that all spas seek to achieve and thought we should share it.

There are spas…and then, there are spas. And the Capella Pedregal’s Auriga Spa in Cabo San Lucas certainly falls into the latter. Promising to not only transform but to transcend the spirits, this is one destination that delivers relaxation on a whole new level.
The realization that this is an environment like no other begins when you walk through the enormous center-hinged pivoting solid wood door. Flanked by a long hallway glowing with candles in amber votives, you weave your way into warmly lit rooms, styled from both Mexican and Mid Eastern influences. Here, your comfort is their only concern. Relaxation rooms, stocked with premium teas and healthy refreshments, are designed for ultimate luxury and rest. And what’s standard fare for most spas – pool, steam and sauna rooms, cold room – is simply the beginning at Auriga, as evidenced by the stunning entrance to their saltwater pool, adorned with stepping stones gushing with running water.
But the amenities are just the beginning. The true healing starts with one of the many treatments from Auriga’s extensive menu of spa services. Designed to “restore and rejuvenate the skin while relaxing the body and mind,” my Cocoon treatment was simply a taste of heaven. The two-hour package begins with an herb-infused foot bath, followed by two types of invigorating body scrubs, a rinse-off, and finally, a warm seashell massage. At the end of this treatment, I kid you not – not only was my skin glowing but my senses were transported into a state of relaxation so rarely achieved by a spa experience. It was then, in the warm after-glow of my experience at Auriga, that I knew what a magical place this was, and how this could be one of the most memorable experiences I’ve ever had with a spa.
