Desert Hideaway with Natural-Mineral-Water Pools and Organic Spa
More than a century ago, natural hot springs were discovered in the Californian desert. Today, that same mineral-rich water is used to fill up the rejuvenating jacuzzis at Aqua Soleil Hotel & Mineral Water Spa. In fact, H2O is the focal point of most of the experience here: the hotel is lined with pools, and the property's palm-shaded courtyard features spa tubs and a pool filled with natural mineral water.
At The Spa at Soleil, located on site, aestheticians perform detoxifying body treatments with the help of the mineral water. You and a guest can use this getaway's two included $25 spa credits toward treatments. During the included automated jade-massage-bed treatment, you'll head to a private room to recline on a mattress filled with infrared jade balls, which radiate a soothing heat to your spine and legs. There is also a free yoga class on Saturday mornings.
Potted flowers and landscape artwork give an earthy feel to the guest rooms. Single-queen rooms are painted in bright color schemes and face a tropical courtyard garden where you can lounge on deck chairs under the shade of palm trees.
With Option 2 of this getaway, you'll get two drinks per Groupon and 15% off all food purchases at the Kafe Bar. The stylish space has comfy chairs, flat-screen TVs, and a snooker table.
