  • Living Spa: An old grove of cotton trees dictated El Monte SagradoEl Monte Sagradothe layout of the property. A waterfall, stone sculptures, footbridge, and a trout pond enhance the natural beauty of the trees. Within minutes, I felt myself relax and tune into the breeze blowing through the branches.
  • Green Philosophy: All water on the property is recycled with a Living Machine - an ecologically engineered system for collecting, treating and recycling water with minimal impact on the land. A Biolarium (a beautiful glass atrium filled with plants) within the spa lets guests experience firsthand how water sustains all life.
