For stressed multi-taskers, hitting two birds with one stone has major appeal. Now more than ever, time-crunched, wellness junkies mingle spa days with social catch ups with friends. Glen Ivy Hot Springs was the first to inspire this trend in Riverside County, catering to groups and holding cuisine to high, holistic standards. At the mouth of Cold Water Canyon, beneath the Santa Ana range, the facility boasts an impressive 19 pools, as well as a number of spa treatments and fitness activities encouraging you to rejuvenate.
You won’t find pretensions here; this campus of therapeutic pools has a playful camaraderie—strangers mud up each other’s backs in Club Mud while trading smoothie recipes.
The mineral hot spring soak is the spiritual heart of the site. Water flows from deep in the earth into this natural sanctuary as it has for countless generations. The first use of these mineral springs can be traced back to 1860, attracting those seeking the benefits of geothermal waters.
Glen Ivy’s Quartz Massage is a standout for athletic types with tight hamstrings.
Imagine quartz crystals spread onto a framed bed, covered by silken linens and heated to perfection. The effect? The surreal sensation of lying in semi-precious sand. The most reasonably priced “trip” to Bora Bora you’ll ever find. Forget old-school leg pillows; your therapist piles up sand strategically to swaddle all four limbs, creating sand cradles with the quartz.
Big event on the horizon? Book the Longevity Solution Facial, designed to revitalize your complexion with a gentle lactic acid peel, in harmony with specialized massage techniques to naturally boost collagen production.
Leading luminary Dr. Claudia Aguirre often visits the spa to educate staff and guests on Skin Regimen. “This is modern, plant-based chemistry formulated for reality,” Aguirre emphasizes. “Urbanites are leading increasingly multi-hyphenated lifestyles, we help the skin adapt and flourish.” An ideal fit for Glen Ivy, where the fusion of ancient health remedies and contemporary skincare innovation offers a healing ritual for every need.
