Desert Hot Springs
While foodies flock to Indio for scratch-made tamales and artists convene in Cathedral City, those in search of total relaxation and wellness escape to Desert Hot Springs. This healing oasis is home to some of the purest hot and cold mineral springs in the world thanks to an underground aquifer beneath the city. Many boutique hotels feature their own mineral pools and spas where you can take to the waters and let the cares of daily life float away.
Soak in a private tub filled with waters from a 600-year-old spring or energize your chakras with a light, rhythmic massage at the renowned Two Bunch Palms. Channel the exotic auras of afar at El Morocco Inn & Spa, where lavish guest rooms with canopy beds create an idyllic setting to unwind and recharge. Or detox your mind and body at The Spring Resort & Spa with a cleanse retreat, which blends organic juices and teas with yoga, meditation, and other restorative practices.
Desert Hot Spring’s natural beauty is equally transformational and inspiring. The spa city is nestled at the base of the San Bernardino Mountains near the Mission Creek Preserve, a protected part of the Wildlands Conservancy that includes lush wetlands, a perennial stream, and native flora and fauna waiting to be explored.
