Last Updated

“Sleep Tourism” is expected to be one of the fastest-growing travel trends in the next 5 years. The market cap for this type of tourism is set to be valued at 640.9 Billion by 2028.

This trend is described as a form of travel in which tourists look for places to rest and forget about the stresses of their daily life and work.

Los Cabos hotels that offer this type of travel experience are heavily focused on wellness.

A good spa is certainly a big plus for travelers looking to experience this new trend. Also, these types of travelers are looking for places where they can genuinely get a good night’s sleep.

Therefore, the type of beds that are offered by hotels are of significant importance. Few spots in the world are perfectly set up to provide this type of experience like Los Cabos. 


Wellness Options Can Be Found On Every Corner In Cabo

There are actually two ways to craft a Cabo vacation that’s purely focused on wellness. You pick a hotel that you like and take part in the different activities that they offer.

The other thing that you can do is find a tour company and have them craft a wellness experience that can include stays at local hotels.

The perfect example is the Wanderwell Retreats. These are retreats that are run by the One and Only Palmilla resort.

Travelers who take part in them have a chance to experience daily yoga lessons, meditation sessions, and workshops.

Part of the retreat includes a healthy set of meals throughout the two nights that guests can stay at the resort.

It should be noted, though, the concept of a wellness-focused vacation or “sleep tourism” doesn’t just limit travelers to looking for the best spa in Los Cabos.

Some Resorts Have Special Programs for Sleep Tourism 

Apart from the aforementioned retreats that take place at the One and Only Palmilla resort, there are other Cabo properties that are investing heavily in this new travel trend.

The Viceroy Hotel in Los Cabos, for example, recently launched their “Strength of Mind” package. The experience is set to include activities such as sound healing and guided meditations provided by certified hotel staff. 

This experience also features a set of massages and treatments aimed at cleansing both the mind and the body.

In fact, the most sought-after dates for this experience are when there’s set to be a full moon in the sky. The belief is that this experience is rejuvenating for both the mind and the body.

On top of the activities that guests are able to take part in while at the resort, they get access to a platform where they can continue practicing guided meditations.

It’s important to point out that the different parts of the experience are each sold at a separate price.

If you want the full experience, it could be a good idea to call the resort and see if they can give you a deal for their full strength-of-mind experience.      

The World-Class Spas Can Help Travelers Truly Relax

While not all hotels are going to offer a full-service package like the Viceroy to promote this sleep tourism trend, there are plenty of resorts with world-class spa facilities.

The Esencia Wellness at Nobu features a spa facility that’s 14,000 square feet large. This includes a wide variety of rooms to provide different types of treatment to guests simultaneously.

The Four Seasons at Costa Palmas may be a great option for sleep tourism not only because of its extensive spa facility with a bunch of different pools.

It’s also located way outside the main Cabo tourist hot spots, making for a relaxing experience even as you walk around the resort.

As we’ve mentioned, even hotels without direct investment in sleep tourism as a concept can benefit travelers looking to decompress and have a truly relaxing vacation.
