An Oasis four your Senses

El Santuario Resort Spa (The Sanctuary) is a luxurious haven set on 494 acres, on the shore of lake Valle de Bravo. The mountains, pine forests, starry nights, sunny days and the song of birds, make it an unforgettable experience for visitors. Across the lake, opposite El Santuario, is the picturesque sixteenth century town with its cobblestone streets and welcoming atmosphere.  

Located on an energy-filled quarts mountain, El Santuario Resort Spa is a spectacular paradise created for your complete relaxation.


Spa, an experience that will change your outlook

El San­tua­rio’s spa is a pa­ra­di­se for body and mind. It co­vers an area of half an acre and re­de­fi­nes the spa ex­pe­rien­ce. It of­fers over 60 the­ra­pies, 15 the­rapy ca­bins, a cou­ple’s sui­te with pri­va­te fi­re­pla­ce, floa­tarium and gym. It also has a “Body and Soul” studio with activities like yoga, meditation, tai-chi and aerobics, in addition to an oxygen bar, boutique and beauty parlor, all with views of the lake or mountains.

El Sanatuario’s signature therapy is “Yenecamu” which means, “place between two waters”. The three hour treatment takes place in the center of the lake, on the “Spa Poontoon” boat and includes services such as cactus body exfoliation, hydrating mescal-tequila body wrap and a relaxing Swedish massage, among others.  



The spa has all the necessary facilities and accessories: dressing rooms with a fireplace, jacuzzi, sauna and steam bath, rain water showers, robes, slippers and complementary lotions, hydrotherapy tubs and talasotherapy treatments, Juice and Snack bar and a circular space for meditation with individual queen-size loungers, surrounded by water and cascades, plus a 180° view of the lake and an impressive hanging copper chimney.        



With a privileged micro-climate, no humidity, 90% less rainfall and more than 8°C than the rest of Valle de Bravo, El Santuario is the only place where you can watch the rain fall on the other side of lake while you sunbathe. 

Architecture of the elements: water, air, earth, balance and tranquility make this magnificent construction a jewel for the recreation of the spirit.

Marina, restaurant-bar, wading pool, separate “Infinity Edge” swimming pools for kids, young people and adults, multipurpose halls and, soon, the Narcissus Quagliata cupola, one of the most important works of its kind in the world.





All of El San­tua­rio’s 64 lu­xury rooms ha­ve a pri­va­te “In­fi­nity Ed­ge” swim­ming pool, which means that, when the view of the pool coin­ci­des with the la­ke, it crea­tes an op­ti­cal illu­sion of in­fi­nity. The rooms ha­ve down quilts, Egyp­tian  li­nes in the dé­cor and ame­ni­ties li­ke aro­mat­he­rapy, a pa­no­ra­mic view of the la­ke and moun­tains, areas for re­la­xing, con­ver­ti­ble fu­ton, queen-si­ze loun­ger, mi­ni bar, TV, sa­fe,  di­rect-dial pho­nes, hand­ma­de, fi­ne wood fur­ni­tu­re and onyx lamps. The mar­ble bath­rooms al­so ha­ve a view of the la­ke and fea­tu­re Mu­ra­no sty­le glass sinks and dou­ble sho­wer­heads with a wa­ter­fall and ri­ver sto­ne floors for re­fle­xo­logy, as well as uni­que Vic­tor Klas­sen sculp­tu­res.
