Restaurant: Flavors and sensations join in a wide
variety of international dishes with a little traditional
touch. The fruits of Mother Earth and the water, passing or
not through fire and that return to meet us with the natural
elements, as well as foods of animal origins, should be
mixed in a healthy and wisely way in order to achieve

we should not sacrifice the joy of flavors and textures that
give the host the pleasure to spoil and to comfort its
guests. Also, we can not forget the wine, or the ambiance,
the music, the company and in El Santuario Resort and Spa’s
case the landscape; since drifting into the night as seen

Outdoor events area
Services of aerial transportation
Besides this, the hotel has the
following spaces designed for the enjoyment and relaxation
of the guests:
Swan Plaza: From the center of the plaza and the
fountain, a swan gives the welcome to El Santuario Resort
and Spat and offers to be the spiritual guide. This symbol
represents the birth of the sun after the agony of the
night, which leaves behind the winter and brings the spring.
The swan stands for being reborn again, since in the oldest
mythologies it drags the sun’s boat until dawn. The twins
Dioscuri, Castor y Půlux, born from the union of a swan and
Leda; one represents the divinity, the other the humanity.
This way, the swan at the plaza, welcomes and sends-off the
guests and is the guide that reminds them during their stay
that is possible to join the mortal body and the
Mirror of Water: A mirror reflects the soul of those
who look into it, since it gives back the energy that is
radiated on its surface. The Mirror of Water constitutes the
bridge between the physical world and the spirit, or, it
opens a door towards other worlds and universes. It
represents the other half of one self. The mirror does not
return to the world the things as they are, but as a gamma
of opposites: One does not see one self in the mirror but an
opposite and complementary being. When the mirror is made of
water the deepest vision of the things can be evoked.
Buddha’s Space: This space it is El Santuario Resort
and Spa’s heart, a space reserved for meditation, the
personal and inner withdrawal and the spiritual search. In
this space all the energy of the mountain comes together and
it becomes present in who goes in. The stained glass window
was made by the painter, sculptor and Italian teacher of
light, Narcissus Quagliata, creator of the dome of the Santa
Maria degli Angeli Basilica, at Rome for the year 2000
celebrations. When entering Buddha’s Space, it is worth to
have in mind the four noble truths on which the Buddhist
doctrine is based: Suffering exists; it has an origin
expressed through fear, uncertainty and anguish. The origin
of suffering is moreover the ignorance that makes us to hope
for things that we can never get from objects, people and
situations. To clarify the ignorance leads us to stop the
suffering. There are methods and means to achieve this and
they are divided in three main methods: Ethics,
concentration and development of wisdom.
Pool: The water has an immense symbolism. In the
sermon of Assapuram, Buddha could observe the mountain’s
lake, whose transparent waters allow observing the sand, the
shells, the snails and the fish, like the path that leads to
redemption. The water is the universal matrix, the
intrauterine state, the place where life emanates and from
where we all come, and the element to which we all dream to
return. Water is renewal and purification, but also a symbol
of the overflowed emotions.
The Tunnel of the Serpent: The serpent is a meeting
point with earth’s depths, where the energy of Gaya is
generated. In El Santuario Resort and Spa, the Tunnel of the
Serpent represents for the visitor the limit of the material
and the entrance to the spiritual world. Those who walk
through it will consider crossing the threshold between the
terrestrial and the transcendental world, and will
understand when leaving the mountain why the serpent is the
symbol of reincarnation: It changes of skin like the water
changes of body.
Suites Waterfall: The hexagrams of the sacred Chinese
book I Ching are groups of six lines divided or complete
that symbolizes archetypal qualities and produce 64 possible
exchanges, each one with a different meaning. The 64 rooms
of El Santuario Resort and Spa are identified with one of
these hexagrams and are arranged like a waterfall,
suggesting to the guests to ascend and descend by the
transmutation that proposes the door to their inner self and
that they will open during their stay.
Common room of rest and relaxation: It is possible to
be on the terrace or to remain inside to experience a
pleasant moment, while talking, playing billiards at some of
the available tables, or simply leaving the body to rest and
position in one of the chairs, in order to look towards the
lake and to watch it without any haste, perhaps while you
are waiting for somebody.

Santuario Resort and Spa offers to its guests. To be able to
