The luxury destinations serve as the inspirational backdrop that will help people reset their bodies and minds. The hospitality segment is focusing on giving people the tools they need to eat, sleep and move in a way that elevates the way they feel, and the way look, so that they continue the journey at home.
Four Seasons Resort and Residences Los Cabos at Costa Palmas will offer exclusive wellness programming from seven-time best- selling fitness and nutrition author Harley Pasternak, and pioneer of natural luxury skincare Tata Harper. Each designed to promote long-term wellness from the inside out, the Resort will offer Pasternak’s Baja Body Reset over three weekends this year, including membership to a virtual community of checks and balances between sessions. Harper’s Sensorial Beauty Retreat will be available year-round and combines a variety of spa treatments with grounding experiences rooted in nature that help to soothe and align all five senses.
Inspired by Pasternak’s New York Times bestselling book The Body Reset Diet, The Baja Body Reset at Four Seasons Resort and Residences Los Cabos at Costa Palmas is a weekend program curated and hosted by Pasternak that combines exercise with adventure, nutrition with Mexico’s rich culinary resources and coaching with education to reset, slim down and get healthy.
Known for sculpting Hollywood’s hottest bodies for the last four decades, the program is centred around five pillars: steps and resistance training, sleep, diet and digital detox to kickstart a health journey that guests can continue at home.
All guests of the Baja Body Reset program receive a reset survival kit that includes Pasternak’s latest book and other Baja essentials including a Fitbit Inspire 2, an herbal eye mask with heating and cooling options, Coola sun care products, local Baja aloe, bath salts and an aromatherapy sleep mist. To optimise performance and recovery, Pasternak, a Hyperice Performance Ambassador, will provide bootcampers with access to Hyperice’s innovative product line including Vyper, Hypersphere Mini, NormaTec, and Hypervolt technologies for enhanced pre- and post-workout recovery. Bootcampers will also take home their very own Hypervolt GO.
As part of the program, all guests will check their phones and devices with a Four Seasons captain before the morning hikes, to be returned after bootcamp, with the option to go screen-free throughout the length of the Reset.

Create Inner Peace and Harmony at Fiesta Americana Hacienda Galindo Resort & Spa
At Fiesta Americana Hacienda Galindo Resort & Spa, the Misaya Spa is an oasis where timeless colonial charm meets the modern practices of holistic medicine and wellness. The Temazcal—the only one located in Central Mexico—is a steam bath for hygienic, therapeutic, and spiritual purposes that benefits the body and soul, balances mind and emotions, and creates a ceremony of healing, purification of the spirit and corporal cleansing. Among other benefits, this ritual improves blood circulation, helps expel toxins, improves metabolism, and reduces stress, insomnia, nervous tension, and more. The interior of the Temazcal has four doors to symbolize earth, water, wind and fire as guests are guided through a meditation during the experience. Another option at the Misaya Spa is a Wine Therapy treatment, where guests are treated to a grape exfoliation, followed by a grape gel and topped off with a wine
wrap. The treatment’s extensive benefits to the skin include deep hydration, increased luminosity, improving elasticity, firmness and circulation, slowing down aging thanks to the grape’s antioxidant power.
Ancient Mayan Chocolate Relaxation and more at Grand Fiesta Americana Coral Beach Cancun
The Seventh Wonder Luxury Massage is a popular treatment that combines seven different massage techniques to create 80 minutes of deep relaxation. Guests looking to pamper and tone their skin in a new and unique way can opt for the Chocolate Body Wrap, a 50-minute treatment performed with Ancient Mayan prized chocolate and followed by a relaxing massage to elevate serotonin. For couples who would like a full day of pampering, the resort offers the Infinite Wellness experience that begins with a yoga or a yoga surfing class in the sea, followed by reflexology massages with the soft lull of waves in the background. This is followed by a hydrotherapy circuit for two hours at the Gem Spa, a sublime Wellness Lunch, and finishing with an indulgent couples’ massage. The Gem Spa has been recognized with a prestigious Forbes Travel Guide Four Star Rating—one of just two spas in Cancun to receive this coveted honor.
Seduce the Senses at Live Aqua Beach Resort Punta Cana
At the newly opened Live Aqua Beach Resort Punta Cana where sensory experiences take center stage, guests immerse in total wellness from the moment of check-in with aromatherapy and a hand massage. At the resort’s Feel Harmony Spa, among the recommended treatments is the Royal Citrus Ritual—an 80-minute treatment for the face and body that infuses the skin with intense hydration and vitamin C, which dramatically smoothens the surface of the skin thanks to the highly effective exfoliating agents. Guests can feel the energy created by the citrus that removes dead cells to unveil protected and radiant skin. The ritual combines massages, stretching and an aromatic foot scrub.
