In June I was invited to check out the beautiful Le Blanc Spa Resort in Los Cabos, Mexico. It was stunning. Le Blanc Spa Resort Los Cabos is an adults only, 373 rooms, all inclusive resort. It features 4 heated outdoor pools (1 infinity pool), 2 swim up bars, 2 outdoor hot tubs, daily activities (including TRX, yoga, spinning classes in the pool and BOGA yoga/pilates classes), unlimited (included with your stay) hydrotherapy at the spa, 24 hour room service, 8 restaurants and 6 bars.
I flew with WestJet, a direct flight from Vancouver in just under four hours. It was my first time to Cabo, so I was very excited to see a new part of Mexico. Landing into Cabo I could see why so many people loved it as a destination. It’s dry and not really humid. It reminded me of Arizona or Sicily, cactus lining the mountainsides along with sage brush. Again, also such a quick flight from the West Coast to get some much needed sun. Once I dodged the timeshare representative gauntlet in the Cabo Airport, I found a representative from Le Blanc who met me outside, gave me a cool towel and took me over to the waiting Cadillac Escalade for my private transfer. Once inside the air conditioned vehicle, luggage was loaded, I was given a cold bottle of water and enjoyed the 20-25 minute drive from the airport to Le Blanc Spa Resort Los Cabos.
Once I arrived at the hotel, I was given a welcome drink, a beautiful flower and checked in seamlessly at one of the reception desks. I knew at that point, this was a very different all inclusive resort from others I have stayed at in the past. I really needed food at this point, so I checked out Blanc Ocean, the casual oceanfront restaurant here. The food and service is amazing. I ate at Blanc Ocean a few times, it’s open for breakfast, lunch and dinner. After a late lunch, it was time to check out my room, and it didn’t disappoint. I was treated to a Royale Deluxe Honeymoon Suite. It was stunning. The room had an amazing, very comfortable king size bed, a soaker tub (with a view of the ocean from the bathroom), separate rainfall shower, BVLGARI bathroom amenities, a Nespresso machine, beach bag for you to use during your stay then keep and of course a bottle of Tequila (which I took home, or you can enjoy in your room).
Every room includes butler service. I would highly recommend downloading the app (yes there is a Le Blanc Resorts app), so that you can manage everything regarding your stay. Using the app you can message your butler, order off the pillow menu, select in room aromatherapy, select which bath salts and handcrafted soap you would like in your bathroom, and you can order room service, then track your order afterwards. My butler came and introduced himself, he also offered to unpack for me and/or iron anything that needed to be, I kindly declined, but the service is there if you wish to use it. They also offer a packing service on the day of check out should you feel inclined.
It was then time to try Blanc Italia for dinner. It was the some of the best Italian food I’ve had outside of Italy. The pasta is made daily, everything was delicious. It was totally worth breaking my keto diet for (another post on this soon). Afterwards, it was time to check out Blanc Fire, one of the beautiful bars here at Le Blanc, looking over the pool area. Comfortable lounge chairs and outdoor chairs create a cozy laid back environment with fire pits lining the space.
Every morning I ordered room service. The Dulce de Leche pastries in the morning were so good. It arrived very promptly and I ate out on my balcony most mornings. The food always arrived hot, which was nice as I find that can be a struggle with room service. I’m an early riser (5:00am), and took advantage of getting the perfect spot at the pool quite early each morning at 7:30am (yes it was already quite sunny and hot). I arrived down to the pool where the pool concierge greeted me and laid out my towels for me on the chair I had selected. He them brought me over a side table with a bucket of ice and a couple bottles of water. Never thought anything of it, he asked for my room number and headed off to greet the next guests. About half hour later my regular butler greeted me at my chair asking if there was anything I needed or had forgot in my room (at this point I was already impressed with the service, but this blew me away). I was all good, so just wished him a good day. This is a spa resort, so the music near the pools reflect that, which I loved. It was mostly quiet, spa style music, in the afternoon a little bit more upbeat however still not loud. If you’re hoping for foam parties and DJ’s by the pool, this resort is not for you. It is a serene place which I was so thankful for and enjoyed thoroughly. I even read two books!
After a site inspection and resort update, I look part in a margarita making and ceviche cooking class. It was so much fun to learn how to make this amazing dish and a proper margarita. They also host tequila tastings so you get to learn a little more about tequila and how each tastes better with different flavours. Who knew dark chocolate truffles with Anejo tequila tastes so good?
I did try a full body toning pilates class followed by yoga on the BOGA boards at the “activity pool”. It was a lot of fun and really suggest getting involved in all the different activities. I also tried the water spinning class, which was challenging but so much fun! Then it was time to enjoy the spa. The hydrotherapy (water journey) is included for everyone at Le Blanc, spa services (facials, massage, etc are at an extra charge). You enter the split hydrotherapy room (one for women, one for men) and are led to the locker room by your spa butler (yes, a spa butler). Your spa butler gives you a robe and sandals to use while taking advantage of the hydrotherapy. I was then led to the Sauna, asked how long I would like to stay here (up to ten minutes), then she applied cucumbers to my eyes with a cool towel on top and sprayed my body with a lime smelling water. I dosed off when she lightly tapped my shoulder and asked if I was ready to continue (I totally lost count of time so I already think having a spa butler is amazing). She then took me to the “Ice Room”, where I was given a pumice full of ice and an aloe vera gel to apply to my body (felt amazing after spending the morning in the sun). I stayed here for five minutes. Then off to the Steam Room. Before entering the Steam Room I was given a lavender and rosemary facial mud to apply and a thermal protectant conditioning treatment for my hair. I applied both and enjoyed the Steam Room for ten minutes. Then it was time for the invigorating shower, a series of showers at different temperatures and intensities. Time to now relax on a tiled heated lounger, where you can sip on hibiscus iced tea or ice water. Again once rehydrated, relaxed here for twenty minutes with another set of cucumbers and a cool towel over my eyes. The time flew by, as again she lightly tapped me on my shoulder asking if I was ready for the therapy pools. From here you are shown to a seat in a private cabana and explained the three pools in this area, the main therapy pool has many different water jets and is a warm temperature, a hot tub and a cold plunge pool (yes it’s cold but very refreshing after doing all the pools). You can then relax in the “Relaxation Room” where they have these amazing nest beds (yes, I had a nap). You can do the water journey and hydrotherapy as many times as you like. I did it at least twice a day!
All the restaurants here are amazing! The food is incredible for an all inclusive resort. The most surprising to me was Mezze, everything was sharable and meant to be shared. It is a Lebanese style restaurant and the food was so delicious! Make sure you order the Turkish Coffee, they make it the traditional way in the sand, table side. The French restaurant “Lumiere” is the only restaurant that requires reservations (you can make this reservation when you check in or from the app) and is a bit more of a formal dress code. Again, can’t say enough about the food, very very good. Blanc Asia has amazing appetizers and sushi, if you’re a seafood fan there are lots of great options on the menu. Poolside, I ordered from Blanc Pizza, actual stone fired pizzas and fresh salads (I love a caprese salad on a hot day). Also ordered from Blanc Ocean poolside, guacamole and pico, and of course amazing tacos! The other poolside attraction is the churro cart every afternoon! They make fresh churros right in front of you and you have the option of getting it stuffed with dolce de leche (yes, so yummy).
Overall, this is definitely my favourite all inclusive resort so far. If you are looking for a relaxing vacation where you are spoiled from the moment you arrive, this is the resort for you.
