Hacienda Encantada Resort & Residences in Cabo San Lucas, Mexico, has unveiled new wellness programming just in time for 2022 travels. For starters, guests can experience an ancient ceremony right on site at the hotel’s new temazcal. An important Mayan practice, the temazcal is a traditional sweat lodge used for cleansing rituals and its health and therapeutic benefits. The darkness and warmth of a temazcal are set to represent the womb of Mother Earth.
During the hour-long ceremony, a temazcalero, or shaman, leads guests through the power of the four elements—water, fire, air and earth—to purify the mind, body and spirit. The temazcalero uses music, steam and herbs to transport guests through a sensorial, visceral experience, where participants emerge feeling inspired and transformed.
Guests can book the temazcal, held Fridays at 4 p.m., local time. The resort also offers the "Hacienda Mexican Ritual" package, a 120-minute service offering the temazcal experience and a full-body relaxing massage.
The hotel’s fitness center has also been renovated and expanded with new equipment. Fitness-conscious guests can enjoy a good workout with the newly added machines from Technogym, besides a Skillrow rowing machine and Excite Live Synchro elliptical. At Hacienda Encantada’s adjacent sister resort, Vista Encantada Spa Resort & Residences, guests can receive complimentary access to Milagro Wellness Spa. Guests booking a stay through June 30 will also have complimentary access to the spa.
According to a recent American Express trend report, 60 percent of consumers are looking to book a wellness-focused trip, and over 75 percent would like to spend more on travel for well-being.
