I visited Sagewater as a weekend getaway with my fiance to celebrate our engagement. Cristina and Rhoni made sure every detail of our trip was considered and that we felt comfortable and welcome during our stay. We especially enjoyed the evening dips into the spa with the pool lights off and a soft desert breeze blowing through the surrounding palm... More

My husband and I had such a wonderful experience at Sagewater! The spa is beautiful and very very clean, really nice rooms with a delicate decor, awesome light and a small kitchen with everything you need (really, they thought of every detail!). Upon arrival we received a delicious coffee cake and our room had fresh water with organic lemons and... More

This was my first visit to Sagewater Spa. I was looking for a nice quiet place to relax, and Sagewater met every expectation. It was so clean, quiet and private. Rhoni and Christina were extraordinary and genuine hosts, going the extra mile to make me comfortable and welcome at their beautiful resort. The water is especially wonderful, and leaves the... More

Lack of pretense, that was my first impression... and shortly after it was how clean everything was. We opened the door into the the pool/courtyard area around 3:30 and I was hit with the colors and lighting that are unique to the desert... Bathed in whitewash and the smell of the hot springs we were greeted and presented with cinnamon... More

My second visit to Sagewater was divine. The room was clean and comfortable, the water was healing and relaxing. Rhoni and Cristina were sweet, hospitable, and helpful, as always. They are pros at recommending where to eat and what to do in the area. My boyfriend and I left feeling completely recharged. I will definitely be coming back to Sagewater... More

Our second visit, one year later. Warm hospitality awaits guests at the spa. We easily settled in and again enjoyed the desert ambience; the quiet mid-century modern decor, pure waters, silence, privacy, the gorgeous white desert light, palm trees, desert winds, etc. Soaking and swimming in the spring-fed waters is consistently refreshing and relaxing. Adults only a plus too! You... More

My girlfriend and I had such a wonderful and relaxing stay from the check-in till the end. Everything about the stay was absolutely perfect. Cristina's warm greeting, complimentary coffee cake, mineral water spa, room amenities, etc. Highly recommend this place for ANYONE visiting Desert Hot Springs to have a relaxing time.

We spent three nights here as part of our tour around southern california and found the sagewater spa to be a relaxing, tranquil haven. With just 7 rooms this really is a private boutique hotel that merits its praise. Christina who runs the place has one aim, to make sure her guests are content and it really shows - she... More

Just returned from a delightful weekend at the Sagewater Spa. My boyfriend and I came here with the hope that we could relax for a couple of days. We got exactly what we wanted and so much more. The spa is very small, only 7 rooms. Very minimalist, but very cozy and intimate. Rhoni and Cristina (the owners) make you... More
