We wanted to experience a clothing optional resort so we chose 3 different options in Palm Springs. Living Waters was by far the best of the three. We were greeted by Lilly who checked us in and gave a tour. She really made us feel comfortable right away. The room we stayed in was so peaceful and tastefully done. Jeff... More

This is a great place for getting away from the stresses of life and just relaxing in the beautiful and serene environment. There is nothing like beginning and ending your day in hot mineral water. This is a small place, so it is possible to find time to be alone in the pool (at least in mid-December). It is also... More

Very relaxing quiet place. Our first time in clothing optional spa. It was very nice & non-threatening. Blissful & great hospitality. Jeff & Judi are great hosts and very friendly. Will most definitely go back!

My boyfriend and I wanted to attend a clothing optional mineral hot springs spa while staying in Indio and checked yelp and trip advisor for ratings. This was the closest and most highly rated. We were a little apprehensive at first at the location from the outside. It didnt look like much. Until we rang the doorbell and Judi, one... More

The Living Water Spa is a place to be re-energized. The combination of wonderful hosts, healing waters, the sun and peace and quiet is rare to find in one location. Here, they are in plenty. This is a place for couples to spend a quiet day together and allow some of life's stress to be soaked into submission-even if only... More

We had gotten a massage here years ago so we knew the place. We booked into a 2BD condo for 4 nights. It had everything we needed including some staples in the kitchen. It is quick and easy to get to from Palm Springs Airport and about a mile and a half from grocery stores, restaurants, drug stores etc. We... More

It was our first time at this spa and wanted to celebrate our first wedding anniversary there. To our surprise, a bottle of champagne, 2 champagne glasses and a stylish anniversary card with our names printed on it was sitting on the dresser in our room. That's class!!! This spa was awesome! It has a very relaxing atmosphere and the... More

In the past I visited this spa for massages many times but did stay over night until last year. That 2 night stay was the most relaxing trip I had experienced in many years. For that reason, I could not wait to return. There is nothing fancy about the resort however you find it very comfortable. From the hot springs,... More

The atmosphere of this little gem is one of tranquility and total relaxation. There is nowhere that we have ever been like this, the weight of the world does not exist at Living Waters Spa. It's all natural without judgement, come as you are and be yourself, it's amazing. We are already planning our next visit for a longer stay,... More

I came with my husband shortly after moving to the area. We were a little put off upon driving up, the exterior of the spa could use some updating but the friendliness of the staff put us at ease. They have lockers to put your belongings in upon arrival. The spa has a mineral water pool, a hot tub, as... More

We are so pleased that this reviewer had an amazing massage by Lili here at Living Waters Spa and that she'd recommend us to others! Yes, we are very nondescript from the outside and that is by design as we don't want to draw attention to our place... a "hole-in-the-wall" kinda place as one TripAdvisor reviewer put it. But inside... More
