SPA REPORT: OJO DE LIEBRE SPA
Experience the ultimate bridal treatment
The iconic Ojo de Liebre lagoon located in Guerrero Negro, about 11 hours north of Cabo San Lucas, is an inviting sanctuary for a wide variety of sea life, including grey whales, which migrate thousands of miles every year to mate, give birth and relax in its revitalizing waters. Inspired by this lagoon of natural opulence, this spa has created its own version of this sanctuary. At Ojo de Liebre Spa you will find a fabled selection of ingredients and treatments curated specially to offer a transcendent experience to your mind, body and soul.
The feel: An Organic Baja Sanctuary. The clean and modern architectural lines, in combination with natural textures such as rich wood and stone on the floors, walls and ceilings, submerge you into this relaxing organic sanctuary. Ojo de Liebre Spa is all about the elements, from their service menu which is divided into Earth Experiences, Ocean Experiences, Energy Experiences, and Wind Experiences, to their wet areas with impressively sized pools.
The experience: When you first arrive you are greeted with a welcome drink made with cucumber, aloe and citrus, and you’re given a tour of the facilities. As you enter the wet areas the warmth of the vast room embraces you, immediately inviting you to enter into relaxation. The round therapeutic Himalayan salt room sits in the middle in between the two pools. The feeling of the salt floor on your feet gives you a sense of grounding, meanwhile the light entering through the salt walls soothes you into tranquility. Make sure you arrive with enough time before your treatment so you can enjoy the many other amenities that the wet areas have to offer, such as jet massaging beds inside the pools, several water pressure features, a sauna and steam room, hot and cold jacuzzis, an outdoor sun room, and thermal beds where you can lay and get lost in the reflections of light on the walls and ceiling that bounce off the water.
The treatment: Velo de Novia (Bridal Veil) – The goal of this treatment is to leave you glowing for the BIG DAY. It begins with an energy cleansing ritual and a feet exfoliation with Himalayan salt, rose petals and jasmine, then followed by a full body exfoliation made of organic coconut, rose petals and sea salt. The mix is sprinkled on your body with a Lomi Lomi technique, and the feeling of the granules falling on your skin is incredibly soothing. After the exfoliation, you’re covered in a warm body wrap and are given an Ayurvedic face massage and after a scalp massage with amethyst oil. You are then invited rinse off in the in-room shower, followed by a massage – which incorporates hot stones – given with a shea butter, coconut and cucumber mask. The therapist recommends that you leave the mask on until the next day so your skin is soft and radiant on your wedding day.
