This was our first trip to the Desert Hot Springs area, and certainly not our last! My husband and I spent a weekend in March at the SageWater Spa and had a most relaxing time. The water there is just divine - both tap, shower, and spa. Amazing! All we wanted to do is stay in the pool and soak,...

The mineral water bath is amazing! Once you are in, you won't want to get out...and we didn't for nearly an hour. That was only to get our massages from Bob, who was outstanding and friendly too. The rooms are tastefully decorated and rather simple, but plenty of what you need in the kitchen should you be interested in cooking...

The room was very comfortable. Having a kitchen was so convenient. Our lovely hosts were welcoming and responsive to our needs. The water was delicious for drinking and soaking. But the most striking feature of Sagewater Spa was the attitude of the other guests. We spent delightful hours in the hot tub talking to people who had returned to this...

We desperately needed sunshine, water and a break from Denver's winter weather. I wanted a Zen-style retreat. My husband wanted easy access to golf courses. We got it all at Sagewater Spa. Owners Cristina and Rhoni (and their sweet schnauzer Sage) were very welcoming. My husband played golf at Desert Dunes, a gorgeous course just minutes away. I spent my...

Crisitna and I are honored by your review. Since you are the queen of research and have so much experience in the health and wellness industry your kind words mean so very much to us.

Sagewater Spa was just heaven. I haven't felt so relaxed in years. I don't really want to recommend it, as I'd like to keep it secret! The water was divine, the size of the place is just right, and it was totally without stress. Beautiful. Note there is no room service and no mini bar, and restaurants are a short...

We spent 2 wonderful nights at Sagewater Spa. We had been hiking around Joshua Tree National Park for two days and to slip into the pool after checking-in was bliss.

The warmth of the mineral water pool is only one part of the elixir that is Sagewater Spa. Surround that pool with a wonderfully designed, cozy cluster of rooms in the middle of the desert, and you're looking at a relaxing time. Add mellow, interesting guests into each of those rooms and your relaxing time also becomes rejuvenating. Add the...

My friend took me here for one night just to escape our city routine. It was a very charming and it felt like a home away from home.
