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

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.

Clothing optional places are not that common and so it is very nice to find one where the owners are so nice and welcoming. My wife and I stayed here our first time and had a very relaxing 2 days. However I do have to say that I would love to see a bit more greenery around the facility. The... More

Ariel H. - We really appreciate your review of our Living Waters Spa. We work hard to provide our guests with an exceptional clothing-optional mineral water experience and we thank you for the 5 star rating! We understand that it is sometimes shocking for non-desert people to visit the non-green desert. Grass and other tropical / greenery just doesn't fit... More

This is a great place to unwind, relax and enjoy the sun and mineral water. This is out third visit and as always, Judy & Jeff's hospitality is wonderful. The level of comfort there is beyond belief. Get naked, enjoy the sun and soak your troubles away. Thanks again

My girlfriend and I have gone three times total, and each time has been a little different weatherwise, but have been well spent, very enjoyable times. Jeff, Judy, and Kat are very friendly and are often easily seen here and there, attending to whatever is needed for their guests. We enjoy the optional early morning brunch and afternoon hors d'oeuvres... More

My husband and I enjoyed the hospitality of Judy and Jeff at LWS as we do a couple times a year. It is the most relaxing weekend getaway. No social media or TV. Hours of relaxation, communication, and reading. A great way to relax with a massage, sauna, or the hot mineral pools. This visit was extra special as we... More

My wife and I have been married for nearly 40 years. We have had a great marriage filled with love, children, and a GREAT sex live. As we aged, many of the things we used to enjoy became undoable due to age and aliments. For our anniversary we decided to go to LWS and meet with Jeff and Judy to... More

Our second visit. It was even better than our first, experience. Being A lot more comfortable may help, but we connected even more, had an even better massage (if you have had many or none at all, you must try a massage here. They are Angels and like no other massage experience in the world). We relaxed even more. We... More
