An unparalleled view that seamlessly blends with the skyline from the saltwater infinity pool will undoubtedly be a focal point of your stay. Enjoy a refreshing cocktail or artisanal beer from Diablitos Bar while receiving a foot massage in front of nightly, sunset shows that poetically sink under the infinity pool skyline. During the day, jump into the 62 ft. salt-water infinity pool complete with underwater sound system and fire pit! For those looking to indulge in wellness, an open-air spa, Spa Sha, offers anything from couple’s massages, wraps and scrubs to manicures and pedicures.
