Located along the Golden Corridor near the village of Cabo San Lucas, Esperanza is one of the world’s most luxurious oceanfront resorts. As the design architects, SB Architects took the resort’s award-winning spa, and made it even better. The team doubled the number of treatment rooms, and added a VIP couples treatment room. New hot tubs and showers enhance the men’s and women’s relaxation areas, and new fitness and cardio areas add a new dimension to the spa experience. Taking advantage of the sloping site, a new, expanded staff training and prep facility is tucked discreetly below the new treatment rooms. Eight-foot curved walls form a series of portals – symbolic entry points to pockets of seclusion within the spa. A new allee through the heart of the spa – lined with high walls, curving benches and mosaic floor patterns – creates an internal destination within this very private retreat.
