Dining in the resort is not overwhelming yet diverse, with five exceptional restaurants to choose from, ranging from Japanese to Italian. While locally-sourced ingredients are a staple at every restaurant and bar, the offerings are a diverse mix of international flavors, varying from elevated fine dining to casual beachside buffet. In terms of Mexican cuisine, a rotating chef program has been implemented at the resort’s Cueva Siete, where current chef Christian Bravo serves up modern twists on classical dishes like tamales or enchiladas, utilizing local produce and flavor. Perhaps the most unique feature of the resort is the mixologist-driven cocktail program, that focuses on the art of the drink and the savor of the sip, with naturally infused margaritas and more on offer throughout the property.
Wellness is taken very seriously at the resort too. Esencia Wellness is an immersive experience for the self featuring signature spa treatments, a full-service beauty salon & barber shop, and a state-of-the-art fitness facility featuring classes from ‘Spin’ to ‘HIT’ (great for a bit of detox before any daytime retox.) The spa itself boasts a range of top notch massages and more. It is in itself a piece of heaven, offering a hydrotherapy experience of plunge pools and a deck with floating beds to match.
