Spa Cerro, a state-of-the-art, 4,000 sq. foot day spa, lays at the heart of Hotel Cerro’s vast array of amenities. Open to the public as well as hotel guests, Spa Cerro’s nature-inspired design offers guests the same blend of San Luis Obispo culture, California’s rich history and casual elegance promised by Hotel Cerro itself.

Spa Cerro’s comprehensive menu of treatments draws from the natural elements of the region surrounding San Luis Obispo, with each spa service specifically designed to restore physical equilibrium and make each guest feel relaxed and rejuvenated. Inspired by the land and sea of California’s Central Coast, Spa Cerro provides a range of luxurious health and wellness options that capture the uniqueness of this region.

Guests can choose from a variety of treatments, including massages, facials, body polishes, and wraps.  A choice of 60- or 90- minute treatments are available, including Blue Poppy Organic Enzyme, Apple Stem Cell, and Cerro Signature Fortifying Ritual Facials, and Classic Swedish, Mommy to Be and Himalayan Salt Stone massages, among others.  A menu of sensual ‘enhancements’ can be added to any treatment including an Aromatherapy Scalp Treatment, Reflexology, Mini Massage and Mini Express Facial.

For a true escape Spa Cerro offers luxurious ‘Rituals’ and ‘Journeys’.  Rituals include both wet and dry treatments such as exfoliation treatments and wraps, followed by a Chromotherapy Cascade and a massage.  Organic Almond Orange Fruit & Nut Body Polish, Nature’s Organic Grounding Ritual and Organic French Green Clay & Seawood Wrap are all rejuvenating rituals that are on the menu.

Spa Cerro’s Journeys will take guests into the realm of deep relaxation and self-renewal.  All Journeys are at least two hours long and include Total Unwind, Serene Escape and Zen Renewal. The ultimate Spa Cerro treatment, Zen Renewal includes an Aromatherapy Foot Bath, Body Scrub, Wrap, and Chromotherapy Cascade Water Treatment as well as a Cerro Signature Facial. All journeys are accompanied by a glass of sparkling wine served on the Rooftop Spa Terrace.

Each Spa Cerro treatment incorporates all natural, organic skincare products with a variety of botanical and sea elements – almond, citrus, beeswax, green tea, lavender, and kelp among many others.  All Spa Cerro guests have access to the Relaxation Lounge and rooftop Relaxation Terrace after their treatments.

“We are very excited to once again share our beautiful, land-meets-sea inspired spa,” says Spa Manager Michele Mignone. “For example, our quiet room’s design was inspired by the vast kelp forests off the SLO county shore to channel the relaxing qualities of the ocean. Like the rest of the hotel, Spa Cerro strives to marry the ultimate in luxury with artful design and ecological consciousness, both in design and products.”

For relaxation and fitness outside of Spa Cerro, hotel guests can enjoy Hotel Cerro’s luxurious rooftop Pool Deck offering dramatic 360-degree views of the surrounding rolling hills and countryside.  Furnished with sleek chaise lounges and featuring three roomy private cabanas, the exclusive space features an intimate bar, with a shaded pergola.
