Remote but relaxing A review of The Spring Resort & Spa
My fiancee and I spent Valentine's Day weekend at The Spring. It took almost 3 hours to get from San Diego to Desert Hot Springs, but it was worth it. Upon our arrival we were surprised to find that the rooms have no televisions, only radios. There is a quiet living room with a fireplace that guests can sit in and relax. Clearly, the very best part of the The Spring, are the springs. The water is warm and cozy, and since there are only 9 rooms availble at this resort, you rarely share the water with anyone. I received a Clay wrap with massage combination, and it was wonderful! My fiancee received a 90 minute massage that he wished had gone the whole day. Close by is just about the biggest outlet sector I've ever been to, which was also fun. The best part of our trip was our dinner in La Quinta at The Cliffhouse. HIGHLY RECOMMEND THIS RESTAURANT. Although it took about 25 minutes to get to the restaurant, it was well worth it. Lobster Bisque is a must! My one and very only complaint is that the resort is very remote...far from any attractions Palm Springs has to offer. Next time I'm pretty sure we will try to stay more in the city of Palm Springs...nonetheless, we would absolutely return to The Spring...it was truly relaxing and we had a hard time leaving.
