    Historical Traveler Reviews Living Waters Spa Desert Hot Springs

    My time at this resort was a time of serenity peace and inner healing


    My time at this resort was a time of serenity peace and inner healing. My husband and I went to visit this spa-tel on Valentines weekend. Upon arrival you are greeted by the smiling face of your host or hostess the owners of the resort. You are welcomed with a tour and are made to feel like family. On this weekend there was a personality seminar, which helped my husband and I the first day to be more loving and more accepting of each other, on and the next two nights we had a massage workshops level I and level II, excellent (workshops were optional). The water in the Spa is warm and pleasant I found it mandatory to go in and out several times all day, it felt so good on the skin, the kind of water that you don?t have to immediately put lotions or oils on when you get out of it .?.beautiful. I didn?t get into the swimming pool but my husband did and he enjoyed it tremendously. The rooms are well appointed we had a room with a kitchen so we were able to prepare light meals if we didn?t want to go out of the resort. everything that we needed was at our fingertips. Finally I would like to say that this is not our first Clothing Optional experience, and before my husband who is very prude hated every last one of them. On the day before we left my husband said to me ?Baby we can come to this place anytime?. Jeff and Judy have worked had to ensure that their place is a safe place for first timers and true naturist, if you are looking for swingers and singles this is not your place but if you are looking for a place where you and your loved one can come and receive impeccable service and be treated like you really matter this is the place for you! First timers this is your place!

    Silky Water


    My wife and had the opportunity to spend two day visits at Living Waters. This was our first CO experience and I must say that it went very well. The hospitality the Jeff and Judy gave everyone was "southern" style! The environment was very safe and clean. We had a "couples massage" on one visit and must say that it was the best masssges that we have "ever" had. It was interesting as to how friendly everyone was as compared to a "textile" location. We met some very nice people. The best part of the visits was the "water"! The spa pool is around 100 degrees and the large pool is around 80. The water is natural mineral water from beneath Desert Hot Springs, and is absolutely the best water we have ever been in. Our skin was so much sofer and it is nice to spend 6 hours in the spa with no "pruning". I would recommend that everyone try the CO as well as the "silky" water.

    Jeff and Judy, thanks for a great visit and we will see you in the future.

    I love this place!


    I was hoping for a chance to detox from the East Coast winter and holiday season when my husband and I went to this 9-room, recently-renovated spa-tel in January. It was everything I had hoped for and more: the waters are fantastic, the desert is revivifying, and the hosts are welcoming and nurturing. They give wonderful massages. We spent a week there and would gladly have stayed longer. If you haven't stayed in a clothing-optional resort, this is a great place to try for the first time. It is very safe. There's nothing fancy about it, and that's the best thing about it. It's healthful, relaxing, and calm. You really ought to try it.

    Just Perfect!


    Living Waters gave my husband and I a relaxing and romantic setting to rekindle our love and rejeuvenate. We'll go again and again. Thanks Jeff & Judy!

    An all-year/all-around "Re-Treat".


    Living Waters Spa: An all-year/all-around "Re-Treat". The peaceful, tranquil location re-juvenates our minds; the soothing, beautiful mountain view re-freshes our spirits; the clean, comforting amenities re-starts our life-force; the exceptional hospitality re-vitalizes our psyche; the hot mineral water re-generates our energy; and the absolute incredible touch of the massages re-vitalizes our entire body and soul.

    If you try the Living Waters Spa only once, like we did, you will keep coming back for the most re-viving experience imaginable. T&S

    Living Water Spa is a great place to get away from your busy life. My husband and I had our first time experience with European style clothing optional. We had a great time there, and we enjoyed the most were the warm welcome from the owners and two totally relax massages.

    We will definitely go again and we recommend you to give a try, too.

    Living waters Spa Au-Natural


    We spent our Wedding Anniversary for 2 days/nights at the wonderful Living Waters Spa resort. The owners Jeff & Judy are wonderful hosts.

    They really made us feel special on our special occasion. Upon arrival, they had set up a dozen red roses in our room, (the wife was really surprised) and placed a couple chocolate stemmed roses on the bed with a personalized anniversary card. What a great start to our romantic weekend. At 3:00 PM while we were soaking in the mineral spa, the hosts served us wine and H'orderves with their special Living Waters Spa snack dip. This is a special time of day. Soaking, munching and talking with all our new found friends. This is a place that really makes you fell welcome. Great hosts and "mineral water" what else could we ask for we thought?. Well... we each had a massage in the afternoon. (one was free with a two night stay) After all this pampering we knew we would be coming back.

    A First that wil not be a Last


    My husband and I spent the weekend at Living Waters Spa, and had a life changing experience. Neither of us had ever experienced a clothing optional place before. Jeff and Judy are consummate hosts who make you feel perfectly at home. We felt more comfortable au naturel at Living Waters Spa, then we do at most other times in our lives. The rooms were simple, comfortable and tastefully decorated. The mineral water pools were as relaxing as can be. Judy serves poolside refreshments everyday at 3PM, and they were fabulous! We felt like royalty. Breakfast, including homemade pastries, was also excellent. We don't have enough good things to say. Give them a shot, you won't regret it!

    Beautifully restored (and updated) "spa-tel"


    Desert Hot Springs is fortunate to have a pool of hot mineral water beneath the town and visitors are fortunate to have Living Waters Spa. This recently restored (and beautifully updated) 'spa-tel'-a spa motel from the 1960s-is the perfect place to relax and unwind. My wife and I spent a week there in January and felt like we could have stayed forever. It's a unique place: clothing-optional, designed for couples, featuring two hot-water pools (one for soaking, one for swimming), with massages available from the owners (a welcoming couple who are both massage therapists), breakfast in the morning and delicious snacks in the afternoon. Most of the 9 rooms have kitchens, so once you stock up on food you never have to leave (but there are plenty of restaurants nearby too). It's a very inviting place.

    Living Waters Spa - a real gem


    Living Waters Spa is a real gem! We spent two nights there and loved every minute of our stay. The owners are great people and go out of their way to make their guests feel at home. We took advantange of their "stay two nights and get a free massage" and even bought another so we both could be really pampered. The hot mineral water was like "silk" on the skin and we even "skinny-dipped" since the place is european style clothing optional. If you've never done that, you got to give it a try!!

Doug goes into panic mode so we ask where the nearest gas station is and go directly to the gas station. We do not want to be walking in this heat. The temperature is about 40 C. Tank full we return to our search for Desert Palms Intervals and find the entrance with an attendant and FINALLY find the office. I am not impressed with ...

    ... of all my eyes didn't feel like someone had burnt them with a red hot poker. So with minimum damage caused we headed down to breakfast. Our hotel is quite small so breakfast is served in a small restaurant called "house of tacos" next door. Finding hotels in America that offer a full cooked breakfast is rare as rocking horse **** so I was pretty chuffed to see the selection on offer. Scrambled egg, omelette, crispy bacon, sausage and of course huge ass American waffles with syrup. ...
