Guests hardly realize they're in Mexico when splurging for a week at this legendary spa. Well, until they join the dawn hike on Pilgrim Way trail and watch the sun rise over distant Baja peaks and canyons. Celebs and high-energy execs mingle with regular folk eager to experience ultimate rejuvenation within the ranch's 3,000-acre cocoon. The low-cal menu pulls from the organic garden and is legendary for its flavors and creativity (though we won't tell if you bring a stash of snacks and alcohol). Exercise, from water-sport conditioning to postural therapy, is challenging, while the pampering easy. The spa offers acupuncture, aromatherapy, and acupressure, as well as more traditional massages. Specialty weeks focus on everything from memoir writing to Zen qigong. After a full day, return to your casita and relax in front of the fireplace.—Maribeth Mellin
