I rarely write reviews unless I am genuinely impressed and moved by all facets of an experience: quality of service, product, ambiance, personalities, decor, generosity of gifted products and so forth.
Each one of those elements were fully delivered and satisfied during my visit to Somma Wine Spa which is connected to the Fiesta Americana.
Upon arriving, I was greeted by the receptionist, Flor, who welcomed me warmly and professionally in english. As it was almost 7am, just before opening hours, she politely led me to the outside deck with a gorgeous view of the sunrise and a cup of tea. She suggested I lay down on the wider than average and comfy looking longchaise and enjoy the sunrise over the Pacific Ocean until opening time. As I lay and sipped my tea, I looked upon the sun breaking the horizon in its spectacular glory with wisps of clouds above reflecting a golden pinkish effect. It was panacea for the eyes.
Even in the exterior deck, the decor was impeccably set for tranquility and serenity. Before may was a shallow pool filled with pebbles and two spouts bringing forth a small fountain of water effect: audible, visual, both having a calming effect on the senses, while the sun rose.
After awhile, Flor welcomed me back to the front reception and asked whether I had a preference for a male or female masseuse to which I requested a female touch. While she looked at the computer screen, I began flipping through the brochure of various massage types. I expected to see only 3, however there were many more listed, each of which deepened my curiosity and interest with the exception of the massage tailored towards pregnant mothers....as I am a man. There is a massage for every possible therapeutic requirement. This Spa is luxury and professionalism at its best. And Flor knew each and every massage package detail for detail as if on the back of her hand. She explained the differences comprehensively to help me make an informed decision. Already from the outset, Flor was the introduction to professional and courteous service!
I was pulled between choosing the facial massage for men or the swedish body message. I opted for the latter... A few knots had formed on my lower to mid back which needed some therapeutic touch ups....
Flor offered me the choice of starting with the steam and sauna rooms as well as the hot and cold jacuzzi's followed by the massage session itself and concluding with a local white wine and fruits. I opted for the message first and conclude in reverse order with the steam, sauna, whirlpools and then a tea and delicious fruits. I will NEVER FORGET the partially frozen grapes that were the most delicious I have ever tasted!
The sliced bananas with honey accompanied by those yummy grapes is a must.
I was introduced to Magda, the masseusse who was both professional and had a naturally warm and sunny disposition and a welcoming smile.
She asked me my preference: the outdoor spa gazebo with immaculate beige/cream curtains and clear fresh air or the indoor massage rooms? Outdoor anyday! The bed itself was tastefully covered by a Japanese style sheet decoration, the floors wooden, positive energies felt good on the feet. She discretely left so I could undress out of the robe that had been supplied and went under the cover. Upon her return, she reviewed the information I provided where I marked off the most needed points of stress on my back. And did Magda work on my back using Swedish techniques soft to medium pressure. I was thoroughly impressed that she never tired and kept persistently working the areas of knots away.
A true professional who knew what she was doing, Magda was able to release the tension in the back muscles which many are unable to truly achieve at other spas. Thank you Magda, you really made a tremendous effort.
50 minutes was the session although I could have chosen the 80 minute package. Next time....I will!
The steam and sauna areas in the men's zone were exactly as it should be....management should be applauded for their attention to detail. Packaged toothbrushes and toothpaste, aftershave cream, hair molding cream, razor blades, shaving foam/gel, hair dryers and other conveniences were easily in eye's view and accessible at no additional cost. The interior design left nothing out, every detail accounted for in the men's zone, tastefully done and bespoke excellence of quality. Gentlemen...you need to check every corner and nook of this spa - management has proven success in how things ought to be done.
Bravo to the Management Team.
At the end of it, I remember being brought to a resting area to enjoy my tea and fruits (I should have grabbed the white wine but it was early in the day) which you just have to experience for yourselves. I read a few pages of the beauty of Cabo Mexico's landscapes and animals but fell asleep like a baby.
The rest is history!
Muchissimos gracias Sommo Wine and Spa for a unique and extraordinary experience - other Spa's.... Please take heed.
