Hot Springs Adult Resort with Award-Winning Spa
The two therapeutic pools at Two Bunch Palm Resort & Spa have their source in the natural springs of Miracle Hill. The lithium-rich waters trickle down through the mountains and eventually feed into the temperature-controlled pools, which are kept a toasty 99–104 degrees. The springs are thought to have healing properties, as affirmed by many guests who report feeling and looking better after a relaxing soak. A sense of tranquility pervades the resort, where the only sound you may hear from the outdoor treatment gazebos is the quack of ducks swimming in the meditation lakes.
Named one of the Ten Greatest Places to Relax Your Mind and Body by USA Today, Two Bunch Palms offers more than 60 unique spa services, many of which incorporate holistic Native American methods. Soothing mud baths are administered in deep tubs filled with peat moss, mineral-rich clay, and cooing swamp monsters. You can get a massage or body wrap with herbal clays in one of the outdoor or indoor cabanas surrounding The Grotto, the largest of the resort's mineral pools.
A network of trails crisscrosses the 56-acre resort, passing by ancient palms and picturesque ponds. You can explore the trails on foot or by borrowing a bike from the front desk. Two main areas house the guest rooms. The Grotto rooms are close to the spa and The Casino Restaurant, and the more secluded Fountain rooms lie near the meditation lakes.
Desert Hot Springs, California: Spa-Centric Oasis Minutes from Palm Springs
The hot springs caused by the San Andreas Fault have given birth to a spa-centric culture in Desert Hot Springs, a tranquil oasis where visitors come to unwind and recharge. The surrounding landscape encompasses both stark desert canyons and emerald-green golf courses. Stylishly laid-back and sporty Palm Springs is just a 20-minute drive from Desert Hot Springs, and Joshua Tree National Park lies 40 miles east. This 800,000-acre swath of land stretches across parts of both the Colorado and Mojave Deserts. The five palm oases scattered throughout the park are the best spots to see animal residents as they come here to drink and buy Ansel Adams calendars.
