In Los Cabos, Play by Suzanne Koch

Armonia Spa at Pueblo Bonito Sunset Beach Golf & Spa Resort is consistently ranked among the best destinations to unwind and treat yourself to luxurious pampering. The spa was voted No. 1 Top Hotel Spa on Travel + Leisure’s World’s Best List and named among the Top 10 Hotel Spas in Mexico, Central and South America. It was also named by Condé Nast Traveler as one of the Top 20 Best Spas in Mexico and Central America. Its European-inspired spa menu, combined with its exclusive line of products and treatments make it an easy winner for anyone looking to revive their sense of well-being. We talked to Pilar González, the spa’s manager of nine years, and got the inside scoop on its exclusive products, most luxurious treatment and its swanky VIP suite.

As one of the best spas in Mexico, we immediately had to ask for the secret ingredient. The answer? New products. But not just any new products—the product line at Armonia Spa is exclusive to Pueblo Bonito and can’t be found anywhere else. The spa is directly involved in the process of its signature products, creating a unique, top-of-the-line brand. What’s more is every six months a new line of its special products is rolled out, along with accompanying treatments and tantalizing scents. “We are known for our signature line of products of body lotions, scrubs, soaps and treatments. Everyone remembers our scents and signature products that we use,” says Pilar. Ingredients like chocolate, lavender and white tea can be found in some of their most popular products and currently, the spa is introducing a new organic line and menu of treatments.


Aside from its exclusive brand, the spa has an extensive menu of irresistible choices that aim to rejuvenate and revitalize. For those looking to really experience what the spa has to offer, Pilar recommends the Diamond Life Infusion or the Luxury Massage C+C Vitamin Aroma Balm, the top two most luxurious treatments at the spa. The Vitamin-C-induced Luxury Massage is 80 minutes of citric pampering that restructures damaged skin, and is one of four Vitamin-C treatments the spa offers that help to restore vitamins lost, especially during sun exposure. It is the dazzling Diamond Life treatment that really delivers though. “The Diamond Life is like the top-of-the-top,” says Pilar, “it helps to take everything back.” Along with sending you into extreme relaxation, this treatment works to rid skin of all impurities through a special peel that detoxifies skin, helping with aging and lifting. Holistic methods and ancestral massages help to revive skin for a newfound state of rejuvenation. Also 80 minutes, this treatment is great for special occasions like weddings, when fresh, glowing skin is a must.

To really indulge, the spa has a separate VIP suite, perfect for couples, that offers more than just a dose of relaxation. The suite is decked out with a special treatment room with two treatment beds, special chairs, a private Jacuzzi, steam room and shower. Stick around after your treatment and enjoy one hour of bliss, complete with champagne and chocolate-covered strawberries. The room is available for the cost of treatment +$100.

The menu at Armonia Spa is complete with facials, rituals, massages and body treatments. It also offers express treatments, manicures, pedicures and bride-and-groom packages. Too many decisions? Pilar tells us massages are the most popular pick among guests, with the Deep Tissue, Swedish and Therapeutic Stone being the most popular choices. Curious what a spa expert’s favorites are?
