With 400 rooms and a full-service luxury spa, the Riviera Palm Springs Resort sits at the foot of the San Jacinto Mountains like the world's most elaborate base camp. You are more likely to bump into a celebrity than you are a climber at the historic resort, however. It’s been a true Hollywood institution since the 1960s, when it was featured in the film Palm Springs Weekend and regular clientele included members of the Rat Pack. Today's Reserve selection grants you the star treatment with the following spa day:
- 50-minute Transformation facial with Bright Eye treatment
- 50-minute Massage Medley with Moroccan-oil scalp massage
- Take-home bottle of Skin Authority daily cleanser
- Relaxation time at the spa lounge in the waterfall pool, Jacuzzi, tea lounge, and relaxation beds
- A glass of champagne
SpaTerre at Riviera Palm Springs immerses guests in retro-futuristic architecture and modern-day luxuries, including 11,000 square feet of relaxation areas, steam rooms, and private treatment rooms. A day at the spa may begin with the Transformation facial, which leaves skin glowing and smooth after gentle exfoliation and resurfacing. It includes a custom mask designed to encourage cell regeneration, and a Bright Eye treatment enhances the results by diminishing dark circles, puffiness, and fine lines.
The spa’s massage therapists are masters of numerous ancient techniques, including the intuitive Massage Medley which uses deep tissue and Swedish light touch techniques to release tension and stress.
As muscles relax, hair comes to life with a Moroccan-oil scalp massage. The treatment nourishes follicles with a blend of argan and essential oils, and it also increases circulation to the scalp, which may help hair grow strong, long, and sentient overnight.
