Summer Splash – 3 Great Spa Ideas for a Pool Party in Cabo
Some things just go together…wine and cheese, song and dance, hugs and kisses, swimming pools and Los Cabos…
Yes, we said it. Los Cabos–colloquially known as Cabo–and swimming pools are a perfect match. Not only does this vacation haven on the southernmost rim of the Baja California peninsula enjoy over 350 days of glorious sunshine a year on average, it also boasts over 100 miles of pristine coastline encompassing breathtaking views of both the Pacific Ocean and Sea of Cortés. Even better, cape cities Cabo San Lucas and San José del Cabo each offer a wealth of pampering beachfront resorts and rental properties with infinity edge pool vantages and jacuzzi warmed sunset views.
Cabo is the perfect place, in other words, to pull up a poolside chaise lounge next to friends or that special someone, pop a bottle of vintage Champagne, and bask in the golden glow of one of the most beautiful places on earth.
It’s makes a pretty postcard image, doesn’t it? So pretty, in fact, that if we didn’t already live in Los Cabos we’d be online booking the next available flight. But the best part of all is that there are no rules. Your idea of a pool party in paradise doesn’t have to look or feel like anyone else’s. You can customize it for any season or for any occasion.
With that in mind, here are three great ideas for turning an already memorable pool party in Cabo into an unforgettable destination experience.
Pool Party Plus Mobile Spa is the Ultimate Recipe for Relaxation
What could be more relaxing than floating on a raft in a Los Cabos infinity pool, cocktail in hand as you look out over a seemingly infinite swath of deep blue sea? There’s an easy answer to that question. Add a mobile spa visit with massages or mani-pedis between swim sessions. That’s the ultimate recipe for relaxation, either as a vacation rest day, or as a special event.
The magic of a premier Los Cabos mobile spa like Suzanne Morel Face & Body Care is that it comes to wherever you are, or wherever you want to be; be it by the pool, at the beach, or any of a myriad other creative or picturesque locations. So a certain amount of stress is already gone before the first drops of essential oils are rubbed onto bare shoulders by your dedicated masseuse for the day.
Mobile spa services take your pool party in Cabo to an entirely different level. Your day isn’t just about sunning and swimming anymore, but rather it’s an over-the-top (and much earned, we’re sure) ode to pampering excess, to pure sensory bliss. Picture wave after wave of sparkling cerulean blue, the floral scent of lavender, the sweet taste of a freshly made mimosa, the tranquil sound of gently lapping waves, and of course the feeling of cool ocean air on your skin as expert fingers tend to tired or tense muscles.
Sound amazing? It is, and it gets even better.
Transforming a Bridesmaids Pool Day into a Bridal Party!
The best part about any party is that it’s a shared experience. A great party is something you can talk about for years afterward, even if most of the people there were perfect strangers. But the best party of all? That’s the kind you share with the people closest to you, and that you never forget; not just because of the people involved, but because it means something more than just fun.
So when we talk about taking your pool party in Cabo to the next level, what we’re really talking about is making it an integral part of a larger celebration. Pampering yourself with a spa focused pool day is one thing, but doing it with your spouse-to-be before a destination wedding is something completely different.
His and hers spa days are of course extremely popular in an engagement, wedding and anniversary celebration capital like Los Cabos, but perhaps the most popular “pool party in Cabo” concept involves the bride and her bridesmaids. Not only is it a great way to relax before the big day, it’s an opportunity for the ladies to indulge in some preliminary beauty services…even before they get their hair and makeup done on the day of the wedding.
Manis and pedis are a given, naturally, but skin and body care options are also readily available. Hydrating facials and a bit of sun by the pool, for example, will have everyone radiant and glowing for the festivities to follow, not to mention for the photos and videos that will capture the moments for posterity.
But that’s only the tip of the spa treatment iceberg. As long as you’re being worked on by the pool, why not get a massage, or a full body treatment that incorporates exfoliation, yoga stretching and a soothing cup of antioxidant tea? That way you all look great and feel great for the important days to follow.
There’s nothing like the gentle pressure of a relaxed or Swedish massage to concentrate the mind and promote a sense of total well-being, but if you prefer a deep tissue or pressure point massage to combat pre-wedding jitters, well that’s okay too. So are margaritas and restorative dips in the pool.
Don’t think of it as just a pool party, after all, but a bridal party!
Making a Splash with a Bachelorette Pool Party in Cabo
As long as you’re getting together with your besties before the wedding, why not make your Cabo pool party the afternoon warm up to a festive bachelorette night out. Start with massages and cocktails by the pool before transitioning to a local restaurant or nightclub for after hours revelry.
Or just make the pool party itself the bachelorette party. It’s not as if you have to leave your poolside perch to have fun, right? Mix in catering and some live music with your mobile spa services and spectacular infinity edge views, and at that point it’s not just a party anymore. It’s a bachelorette pool party in Cabo; and trust us, that’s something
every woman should experience at least once in her life.
