Jeff, Judy and staff are wonderful. I had a great relaxing time. Left husband and children home, and in desperate need of quiet rest and therapy. I had a wonderful 90 minute massage, and soaked in their wonderful mineral water pool almost the whole time I was there. Just 9 rooms poolside. There were about a dozen people total. Exactly...

Our first stay (we've already booked a return visit) was such a pleasant surprise. The online reviews helped us choose this spa. Very relaxing. Very clean. Very comfortable. Jeff told us we would get to enjoy one of the best massages we ever had. Very skeptical, Lilly and Kat did just that. Top 5 massages I have ever experienced.

This was my first attempt as a solo traveler to Living Waters. I had caked the other nude spa and didn't like their response to my inquiries and decided to come here instead, based on the phone conversation. I'm a newbie to this and was on a healing journey, so I thought, "Why not". The staff were very professional and... More

My wife and I enjoyed every minute of our two night stay here. It is perfectly clean, comfortable, quite, relaxing. The owners are super nice. The rooms are around the pool. A few feet and you are in the pool with perfect temperature. We will certainly be back.

Truly a peaceful oasis to soak in the beneficial waters of Desert Hot Springs, unwind, and relax. Everything about my recent trip to Living Waters was soothing and supportive to relaxation. The room was clean, the kitchen had everything I needed for 3 meals and snacks. Also, I enjoyed meeting and chatting with the other guests. The hosts were warm... More

My fiancé and I were first time visitors and did not know what to expect. Of course we knew that this is a clothing optional spa and wanted to give it a try. The host was very nice in explaining the rules and etiquette and after we settled in ,found it to be a very relaxing experience. Fellow guests were... More

What a fabulously relaxing naturist spa resort. Jeff and Judy are the owners and along with their two staff members, Lilly and Kat, they have created a clean, comfortable, quiet place to relax, soak, get massage treatments (all 4 are massage therapists) and meet other people who enjoy a textile-free environment. This is the only spa in the area with... More

This was my first time at a clothing-optional place, and look forward to returning to Living Waters Spa. Judy and Jeff were so warm and hospitable, and have created a wonderful environment to unwind. Their policies are such that I could arrive on my own and feel safe and have a relaxing time. I found the other guests to be... More

A nice small friendly place to be nude. From the super staff to the other guest's everyone helps you feel like old friends right away. Soaking in the great mineral spa,heating up in the sauna,getting a wonderful massage, or just laying by the pool getting your all over tan, Living Waters Spa strips you of your stress and sends you...

Outstanding relaxing weekend. Treated like old friends by Jeff and Judy and made new ones along the way. Water in the pool and jacuzzi is amazingly invigorating. Couples massage session highly recommend. Can't wait to go back.
