Azure Palm Hot Springs Resort & Day Spa Oasis

Blue hot springs

Azure Palm Hot Springs Resort & Day Spa Oasis is just fifteen minutes away from Greater Palm Springs, providing stunning views of Mt. San Jacinto on top of Miracle Hill. Crystal clear, steamy mineral water fills the pools, spas and private tubs of the resort, but one of the most unique features is the Desert Ice Room. The room is the counterpart to the only authentic Himalayan Salt Room in Greater Palm Springs. Traveling back and forth from the healing heat of the Himalayan Salt Room to the bristling cold of the Desert Ice Room increases circulation, reduces tension and inflammation, improves muscle recovery and invigorates the mind. The frosty 25° F Desert Ice Room is currently available only to overnight guests to limit capacity and maintain its relaxing experience.

Casita pools and private pools are also available when booking rooms and suites.

Ace Hotel & Swim Club

Ace Hotel

The Ace Hotel & Swim Club in Palm Springs is a desert oasis providing the perfect spot to chill out during the fall and winter. The hotel features two cooled pools. The Main Pool is where parties and celebrations have taken place in the past with live music and DJs during Coachella, Palm Springs Pride, White Party and The Dinah. Order food from King's Highway or indulge in drinks from the Ace Hotel’s new cocktail menu and wine list. The hotel also hosts goings on from bingo and jazz nights to pool parties and large events. The Commune Pool is a quieter option by the fire-pit and the Commune event space, where the hotel holds parties, weddings, film screenings, family dinners, and other activities. The walls of the Commune open up to the circular pool, an intimate amphitheater, and views of the mountains—acting like an indoor/outdoor living room on a very grand scale. The Ace Hotel & Swim Club offers day passes for pool use Monday through Thursday currently, as well as the Swim Club membership, which includes discounts at The Feel Good Spa.
