You have to experience relaxation like this in order to believe it. Whimsical Moroccan retreats, Spanish hacienda-style inns draped with colorful bougainvillea, and carefully restored midcentury modern gems, there is a Desert Hot Springs mineral water 'spa sanctuary' that's the perfect for you. A good soak in the mineral-rich natural spring waters around Greater Palm Springs includes benefits like increasing circulation, easing chronic pain and absolute relaxation.
Ranked one of the Top10 clothing-optional resorts in the world by TripAdvisor and featured by the New York Times, Washington Post, The Tennis Channel, Los Angeles Times, and USA Today.
Our facility is completely private and clothing optional. You are encouraged to soak in our healing mineral waters au naturel and enjoy this total immersion in nature. For generations Europeans have visited the "spas" and have sunbathed nude. We Americans are now realizing how relaxing this "nude recreation" can be. Swimsuit optional vacations are now becoming common for us and we are discovering what our European friends have known all along -- such simple nudity is total freedom. We've designed our place to give "first timers" the best clothes free experience possible. At Living Waters Spa we provide you the coolest vacation souvenir of all: no tan-lines!
So come on and skinny-dip with us! When was the last time you did something for the first time?
