An abundance of shimmering stars is quite a sight to behold as evening falls on Greater Palm Springs; however, it’s especially breathtaking when you spa under those very same stars. Add a special “glimmer” to your next spa getaway with these unforgettable “spa under the stars” experiences.
Two Bunch Palms | Desert Hot Springs
Treat yourself to an evening in a lush oasis where your eyes can soak in the twinkling desert stars as your body soaks in the healing mineral waters of The Grotto at Two Bunch Palms. In this tranquil retreat you’ll discover one of Greater Palm Springs’ most surprising treasures: natural hot mineral water from the centuries-old aquifer below.
Palm trees, sweet blossoms and stone accents set the tone for relaxation at these outdoor pools where clear views of the night sky might even include a glimpse of a white owl or two. Take it as hot as you’d like: the pool temperatures are set at 99 and 104 degrees.
Ritz-Carlton Rancho Mirage | Rancho Mirage
Get a little starry-eyed at the Ritz-Carlton Rancho Mirage, where the Serenity Under the Stars yoga class lets you savasana into the sunset. Each week, this outdoor yoga class stretches and refreshes guests as the sun sets on the oasis, letting the calming night sky wrap you in full relaxation as you go deeper into downward dog. Complimentary yoga mats and bottled water is provided for this weekly class held on the stunning Vista Lawn.
Omni Rancho Las Palmas Resort & Spa | Rancho Mirage
Take your spa day – or night, that is – to the next level at Spa Las Palmas in Rancho Mirage, where Wednesdays are dedicated to “Spa under the Stars.” The San Jacinto Mountains paint a picturesque backdrop for this weekly spa “happy hour” where the night sky is dotted with stars and palm trees alike. Enjoy a glass of wine, hors d’oeuvres and entertainment in the peaceful outdoor spa area, where an inviting pool surrounded by turquoise blue chaise lounge chairs demand an evening of relaxation.
Unwind with a Swedish massage, refresh yourself with a deep cleansing facial or revitalize your body with a hydrating wrap; reservations include your choice of these 50-minute treatments.
La Quinta Resort & Club | La Quinta
If you want to keep your spa experience under the stars all to yourself, book a private treatment at Spa La Quinta at La Quinta Resort & Club. Perhaps it’s the scenic drive down the long, immaculately landscaped entrance beneath a brilliant red mountainside that makes Spa La Quinta feel like a private sanctuary removed from the stresses of everyday life.
Or, perhaps it’s the La Quinta Signature Bath with its private outdoor tub scented with lavender, citrus or eucalyptus that creates the solitude needed to truly relax. Either way, the stars are calling.
Miramonte Resort & Spa | Indian Wells
Why just spa under the stars when you can “party” under the stars? Make it a spa night to remember at The Well Spa at the Miramonte Resort & Spa, where couples are invited to unleash their creative sides during the Pittura Festa or “painting party.” With views of the night sky from a private cabana, couples can let their imaginations run wild as they paint their partners with colorful, therapeutic muds.
Afterwards, a private outdoor shower lets you clean up for a 60-minute couples’ massage. A soak in the spa’s outdoor saltwater pool offers yet another way to make the most of the evening.
JW Marriott Desert Springs Resort & Spa | Palm Desert
Enjoy a spa experience under the night sky on your terms with your very own Sanctuary Spa Suite at The Spa at Desert Springs. Perfect for group getaways, the suite offers a private courtyard where a hydrotherapy tub for two and outdoor fireplace offer an unmatched view as evening descends upon the desert. A personal butler is on-hand to enhance the experience, while perks like private treatment tables, a desert rain shower, an indoor fireplace and a high-definition TV await – if you make it inside, that is.
Hyatt Regency Indian Wells | Indian Wells
Paradise is found at the Hyatt Regency Indian Wells, thanks to the Couples Outdoor Paradise experience at the resort’s Agua Serena Spa. There’s plenty of time to enjoy a private moment under a starry night with your sweetheart, as you’ll have your own outdoor suite for an hour. Add a body painting kit for colorful clays, hot oil hair treatments and a honeycomb exfoliating body mitt for rinsing off in the outdoor shower. The experience ends with an 80-minute couples’ massage, enjoyed under the stars in this outdoor paradise.
