Hard-working moms deserve a break and what could be more relaxing than a combination of beaches and spa treatments? At AAA Five-Diamond Grand Velas Los Cabos, located seaside in Mexico, you can now add bubbles to the mix. The new SE Spa Bubble Experience Menu offers new treatments drawing from modern Mexican approaches to rejuvenation. These effervescent experiences include Mexican sparkling wine and strawberries drenched in chocolate:


  • During the 50-minute Grand Velas Bubble Manicure, guests get an exfoliation with bubbly salts, followed by nail shaping, an application of soothing, moisturizing cream and a nail polish finish.
  • The 80-minute Bubble Oxygenating Facial focuses on delivering oxygen to the skin to improve the appearance of pores and small imperfections. Estheticians utilize temperature-controlled tools to facilitate the experience.
  • Bubble salts feature in the Grand Velas Pedicure, a relaxing 50-minute treatment including exfoliation, an indulgent pedicure, application of luxurious cream and classic nail polish.


Booked treatments also include the spa’s seven-step SE Spa water journey. Mom can show off her flashy new nail color while enjoying a circuit through the eucalyptus-scented steam room with chromotherapy, a refreshing polar pool, aromatherapy sensory shower, sauna and Jacuzzi.


The circuit even includes a multisensory pool with massage waterfall faucets for neck and back, and carved-stone chaise bubble beds with jets positioned below the surface to deliver a water massage while mom relaxes. Spa valets are on hand to make sure comfort is paramount throughout the circuit.


Post-treatment, there’s time to linger with warm neck pillows, heated loungers, refreshing scented towels and cucumber slices positioned strategically over eyes. Need more bubbles? Mom can nibble on bubble waffles at the resort’s Azul Restaurant, or sip from her choice of bubble teas at on-site Amat Coffee Bar.
