Our Inspiration

Spa Alkemia

To transform, one must surrender entirely to that which it seeks. Motivated by this power of change, Spa Alkemia provides a playground of peaceful healing inspired by nature and tradition. The lushly landscaped setting is an oasis amid the desert, blurring the border between indoors and out. Here, treatments are performed in secluded settings amid the rich foliage, body scrubs are created in the moment from local ingredients and ancient rituals are used to cleanse the body and clear the mind.

Healing Waters

Water, in all its forms, has been a healer across cultures and centuries, used to promote circulation, strengthen the immune system and soothe aching muscles. At Spa Alkemia, an open-air circuit uses elements including temperature and pressure to take guests on a transformative, pre-treatment journey.

Alkemia Spa - Meditation & Yoga Room

Savasana Experience

The Savasana Room was created to help you quiet your mind, relax, and listen to and through your body, your heart, your soul, and your inner spirit so you may gain deeper awareness, clarity, optimal health, and well-being. As you listen to the music you will simultaneously feel it resonating throughout your entire body and mind as an inner healing cellular sound or musical massage.

Spa Alkemia


A purifying journey for body, mind, and soul beginning with an age-old energy cleansing ceremony and traditional chanting, guided by a Spiritual Healer (Shaman). The gradual heat generated in the space promotes detoxification, while the cooling outdoor shower enhances blood flow and stimulates the immune system, fostering improved health and a holistic energetic shift.

Signature Treatments

The magic of Mexico and the healing elements of nature form the foundation for the signature experiences at Spa Alkemia. Treatments are performed in rooms surrounded by water and lush foliage or a couple’s casita. Casa Privada offers an exclusive spa experience for groups or couples with its own plunge pool, lounge, massage studio and steam room.

Alkemia Al Fresco

Natural, local ingredients including tamarind, brown sugar and salt are used to craft customized, hand-blended body scrubs to awaken the senses and hydrate sun-soaked skin.

Brilliant Facial

A glowing complexion is delivered with a skin-brightening exfoliation and pure pearl hydration mask. Hands and arms are massaged with an uplifting blend of aromatic oils and the face is hydrated with a coconut-aloe, skin-brightening balm.

Desert Botanica

Comfort and deep relaxation are delivered with a warm, handmade herbal compress and firm, flowing massage featuring desert sage, vanilla and lavender oils. The face is cleansed, treated and hydrated with a blend of natural ingredients.

Baja Amor

Playfulness and passion come together in this experience for two. Begin with bodypainting using colorful clay followed by refreshing, tequila-soaked paletas beneath the sun. After a relaxing steam and dual shower, enjoy side-by-side massages.

Alkemia Massage

Ayurveda says that activating energy points opens pathways to vital body forces. Drawing from that wisdom, this full-body massage begins on a warm gemstone bio-mat, aromatic oils and a facial massage using crystal wands.

Abundancia de Flora

A celebration of the city’s gardens, this relaxing ritual includes a farm-to-table exfoliation, massage using rose and orange blossom oils and application of a rich, floral body butter. The experience closes with a healing reflexology session.

of Discovery

The resort shares its deep connection to the land and culture through exclusive, bespoke excursions that journey through the land and amid the sea. Led by passionate experts, guests are encouraged to be more than observers; to interact with people, traditions and nature in unforgettable ways.

Land Experiences

In San José del Cabo, history is alive and found in the courtyard of the City Hall, where murals depict lives from past eras, and in the 18th century Misión de San José del Cabo Añuiti, whose architecture reflects Mexico’s colonization by the Spanish. From here, the journey travels across centuries to arrive at the sophisticated city of today, where one can explore galleries in the arts district or wildlife in the Estero San José del Cabo.

Sea Experiences

Anointed the “aquarium of the world” by environmentalist Jacques Cousteau, the Sea of Cortés is among the world’s most diverse, attracting migratory species and fishermen from around the world. Resort excursions explore above and below the water’s surface to showcase the beauty of nature and the importance of preserving it.

Symphony on the Sea

Majestic, massive and mysterious, whales travel to the Sea of Cortés each winter seeking warmer water; and they’re not alone. Manta rays and leatherback sea turtles join them on the journey. Resort guests can embark on a private excursion to catch whales in their natural habitat. One may even be lucky enough to spot a blue whale, the world’s largest animal.
