Built in a circular shape and heated using volcanic rocks gathered locally from the state of Baja California Sur. With its entrance facing east to greet the sunrise, the Temazcal is a re-creation of the womb space – small, dark, warm and humid. The entranceway is built low to the ground so one must enter lowering their head – a humbling position upon which to enter this sacred space. The exit is again the same – head first and low, facing down. This exit is the act of rebirth – cleansed and rejuvenated, and into the physical world once more.
The One&Only Spa at One&Only Palmilla is set among tropical gardens on Mexico’s Baja Peninsula, and offers sweeping views of the Sea of Cortez.
