Las Ventanas al Paraíso is a celebrity-loved oasis that is unlike any other, featuring several pools, premium restaurants and, of course, an immersive spa. From an elemental journey that connects you to earth, air, fire and water, to holistic body rituals inspired by nature, you’ll find yourself wanting to book more than one treatment during your stay. However, even if you don’t make time for a massage, all guests are able to use the spa facilities at their leisure. Embark on a cold plunge before taking a dip in the outdoor hot tub, or sweat out last night’s tequila and mezcal tasting in the sauna.
