Desert Hideaway with Natural Mineral Water Pools and Organic Spa

More than a century ago, natural hot springs were discovered in the California desert. Today, that same mineral-rich water is used to fill up the rejuvenating hot tubs at Aqua Soleil Hotel & Mineral Water Spa. In fact, H2O is the focal point of most of the experience here: the hotel has several pools, and the property’s palm-shaded courtyard features spa tubs and a pool filled with natural mineral water.

At The Spa at Soleil, aestheticians perform detoxifying body treatments with the help of natural mineral water. Options include massages, body wraps, and anti-aging facials. Two $25 spa credits are included with this getaway.

Potted flowers and landscape art give an earthy feel to the guest rooms. Single queen units are painted in bright colors and overlook a tropical courtyard garden where you can lounge on deck chairs under the shade of palm trees. Each Soleil suite boasts a private, 6”x10” jetted mineral pool and a separate sitting area. All rooms have complimentary Internet access. Downstairs, you’ll find the Kafe Bar, a stylish space outfitted with flat-screen TVs and a snooker table—it’s a great spot to drink locally brewed beer.

Desert Hot Springs, California: Spa-Centric Oasis Minutes from Palm Springs

In 1913, settler Cabot Yerxa was digging a well in the San Bernardino foothills when he unearthed natural hot springs bubbling beneath the Californian desert. This area later became known as Desert Hot Springs, a town that’s thrived over the years as a spa-centric getaway thanks to Yerxa’s find. The mineral waters, which hover around 148 degrees and are said to have healing powers, now flow directly into several local spas. Desert Hot Springs’ location, just 12 miles north of Palm Springs and two hours east of Los Angeles, also makes it an easy destination to reach for those looking for a relaxing escape from the big city.

You can see more of Yerxa’s legacy at Cabot’s Pueblo Museum, which sits within a Hopi-influenced pueblo home he built using materials found throughout the desert. The four-story museum stays open year-round and offers guided tours of the property and historic artifacts detailing Yerxa’s life and travels.

After dark, take advantage of the area’s light-pollution ordinances by driving 40 miles east to Joshua Tree National Park to stargaze and spy the glowing eyes of resident coyotes during a night hike. The roughly 800,000-acre park stretches across parts of the Colorado and Mojave Deserts and plays host to some of the country’s most varied wildlife. The five fan-palm oases that are scattered throughout the park are the best spots to see native animals, such as snakes, bighorn sheep, and black-tailed jackrabbits.

Very Comfortable Bed, room was very neat & clean. Limited Channels & Picture was scrambled. Very Nice Staff, Ice Machine inconveniently located not on every floor, Same with microwave. Hotel Amenities were great (massages & restaurant that is attached has very very good food).

The staff was incredible from check in to check out. The accommodation were wonderful, 24/7 mineral pool and 2 jacuzzis. Would have given them 5 stars except for shaky WiFi and only 4 lousy cable channels, but they said they’re working on it. The restaurant on site was great!
