My husband and I stayed in one of the rooms with a kitchen, and we were really pleased with the entire experience. Owners were sweet and helpful, and the whole experience was peaceful and relaxing. I am super-picky about cleanliness in rooms, and even I was really happy with how well- cared for the rooms were. The other guests were... More

A wonderful experience. As a solo day user, I was treated with kind hospitality by the owners and not just bid; but made welcome! Leave the cell phone and tech devices behind and enjoy the restoration and relaxation of your original senses delivered by mineral waters.

My wife and I enjoyed a wonderfully romantic two day retreat at LWS. The facilities were clean and very comfortable. Most of all, we felt like family amid the owners and other guests. The couples massage was absolute bliss. We'll definitely plan on coming back. One of the highlights was gathering in the naturally heated hot pool for H'ordoevres and... More

Skin is the clothing creation offered us. We skin-clad, sky-clad humans are so beautiful. I just spent a couple of days with my dear friend at the "clothing optional" Living Waters Spa in Desert Hot Springs, CA, enjoying the sun and breeze and mineral waters on my whole skin. The safe container created by the proprietors, Jeff and Judy, commands... More

My wife and I enjoyed our second visit to Living Waters Spa and are looking forward to another visit later this year. Jeff and Judy have an oasis and the atmosphere is relaxed, quiet and professional. We met a nice couple from Ohio, another couple who have spent the last decade traveling the US and a gentleman from Argentina, we... More

This was our first clothing optional experience. Reviews on tripadvisor.ca made us feel Living Waters would be the best selection for us. With a long day of travel and being tired upon arrival we were both not sure if we were ready for this. After a great meal at a Mexican restaurant that night (recommended by Jeff and Judy), then...

Whenever we want to have a true vacation we return to LWS. We just returned from our fifth stay, I would like to be there right now. We usually stay for a week. The condo was a great deal. Every time we go there we talk about going exploring the surrounding area, this time we went out twice which was... More

Let me start saying that I didn't choose this place, but my husband did. I wanted some relax time and my husband came out with this surprise for me over a weekend in March 2013. This small hotel is run by people that really want you to know and feel like you are a guest in their house, despite the... More

Living Waters Spa is a unique experience among small hotels. We are sorry that we were not what this person was expecting and perhaps our uniqueness just caught her off guard. If one is only used to large hotels where you never meet the owners or know the staff by name, then the Living Waters Spa experience IS for most... More

We've been visiting Jeff and Judy since they opened their cozy spa 10 years ago. Always meet friendly new guests when we're there and Jeff and Judy feel like family to us. Love the breakfast options and great coffee in the morning and 'happy hour' in the spa chatting with other guests.

My wife and I visited Living Waters for the second time at the end of December. We LOVE Living Waters and will definitely be back! Please see my July 1, 2013 review "Relaxation Perfected".
