Travel Blogs from Desert Hot Springs
Our visit in San Diego was wonderful; however we are antsy to hit the road. Three weeks in one place and the grass is starting to grow between our toes! First stop, Palm Springs and freedom from textiles :-)! Unfortunately, our new format and the use of a free blog prevents us from displaying textile free images; we will still note where we stayed …
... best slumber of the trip, we awoke to Orion looking down, the sun rising in the east, and LA glowing in the west.
We broke camp and set sail for San Diego.
BTW: For those who have been worrying about the fate of the tow bar, we finally got all the pieces we needed and it's all fixed and good to go.
... other worldly landscape of almost anywhere in the usa. The Dr. Suessian trees, cacti, and the outcroppings of piles of cracked and rounded granite make you feel as if you are on another planet.
We did some drive/touring to the scenic overlook gazed upon the San Andreas fault and could at least see the Salton Sea calling us in the distance. We did a bit of hiking (about ...

The road undulates over hill and dale. In some locations the road looks like a black ribbon with a rapid staccato of dips and rise resembling the track of a roller coaster. Sometimes I cannot see the bottom of the dip giving me the feeling that I should hit the brakes. Approaching the top of a rise I feel like the truck is going to launch off the peak and travel through the air Evel Knievel style. Of course that ...

Its past time to eat. It has gotten warm so the doggies can't stay in an unattended truck. A Mexican restaurant offers food to go. We order burritos which are not very well seasoned- as in NONE. Its our fist experience with bland Mexican food and it is not pleasant.
Its about 90 miles back to the resort so we head out backtracking our way to the Sands RV and Golf Resort.

Historical Traveler Reviews Living Waters Spa Desert Hot Springs
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!
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.
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.
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.
We spent our Wedding Anniversary for 2 days/nights at the wonderful Living Waters Spa resort. The owners Jeff & Judy are wonderful hosts.
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!
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!!
