The nutrient-rich waters that bubble up across the Desert Hot Springs area have been used for centuries as natural cures for a variety of health conditions, including problematic skin, sore joints—even regulating blood sugar levels. Sometimes, the best cure for what ails you is a luxurious pampering session and these desert spas will not disappoint. So, get ready for a relaxing day of mud masks, massages and “me” time. Two Bunch Palms Pampering the public since the 1940s, the oldest hot mineral springs resort in the U.S., Two Bunch Palms, has catered to celebrity clientele over the decades. The lithium-rich hot springs is sure to cleanse the mind and body with its healing properties. Immerse yourself in a private mud tub or relax on the private sun deck or sip on cocktails and freshly squeezed juices from Essense, the resort restaurant. While Two Bunch Palms is the perfect place for a manicure or brightening facial, be sure to opt in for one of their signature spa treatments, like the Desert Abhyanga massage. Here, a massage therapist uses oils of wild-harvested desert plants in the Indian Ayurvedic tradition to restore and detoxify the body. 67425 2 Bunch Palms Trail Desert Hot Springs, CA 92240 760.329.8791 The Spring Resort and Spa The Spring Resort and Spa features some of the hottest naturally occurring mineral water in the region, reaching temperatures of 170 degrees.
