We stayed at Sagewater during Modernism week in Palm Springs. We chose this place based on the positive reviews and we can't echo enough the same sentiments left by the previous guests. The hosts, Cristina and Rhoni, were phenomenal hosts. The motel is well kept, clean and simplistic. Its a perfect location between Joshua Tree and Palm Springs. The pool... More

Thank you for the sweetest review from a very sweet couple. We are so happy that you were both so happy here and enjoyed yourselves exploring the desert. Between Joshua Tree and Palm Springs and then relaxing in our mineral water, you got a great taste of our desert life. Look forward to many returns visits! More

Like countless others before us, the simplicity of Sagewater Spa and the truly exceptional kindness of Cristina and Rhoni won us over the moment we walked through the front door. As Rhoni kept saying "it's the water, it's the water". Well, it is the water but it is also far more than that. It is the wonderful caring hosts, it... More

Cristina was very helpful in arranging my last minute reservation, and Rhoni was the consummate host, warm and welcoming. She arranged for my in room massage which was heavenly. I felt at peace while swimming in the pool and soaking in the spa, both late at night under the nearly full moon and early in the morning as sun rose... More

You are so poetic and your words exactly describe the way we feel about the desert, too. There is such a contrast between our busy lives to the quiet relaxation that Sagewater and the subtlety that the desert provides. Come home soon. More

We stayed in Sagewater Spa over New Year's Eve after many friends recommended it to us. It is a lovely spot between Joshua Tree and Palm Springs and perfectly placed to take advantage of the gorgeous surround. The hotel is a remodeled motel with an L shape of small rooms around a warm water pool and hot jacuzzi. The rooms... More

Thank you for appreciating our service and normally our rates do begin at $225.00. Our holiday packages includes massages or facials, cocktails and hot d'ouevres, gift bags of organic homemade treats and a chilled bottle of Veuve Clicquot, with rates reflecting our offering. Quiet end of year celebrations have become customary at Sagewater Spa. Hope you will enjoy us again. More

Very special desert escape - excellent water, Palm Tress reaching to the sky, you can stay in the water all night long, everything you need, spotlessly clean and always very good company and unexpected, new friends. Simple and well equipped mini-kitchen so you can stock up for your stay and never leave. The owners are absolutely wonderful. I'm reluctant to... More

Great hot springs water in a swimming pool, especially enjoyable at night; very clean pool and rooms; good friendly service and advice for sightseeing and restaurants All rooms open to the shared pool deck so it's not for someone who wants total privacy, but guests and manager are low key and respect privacy and quiet. - P+M

This is hands down the best place to go in Desert Hot Springs. Incredibly peaceful, just enough mid-century attitude to make you think someone thought about it but not too hard. The water is so, so nice. I have sat in that water for hours at a time. It feels like a cloister of wellness. But it's really the two... More

My husband and I spent 4 days and 3 nights at Sagewater Spa, and we loved every minute. Soaking in the mineral waters was divine. The quiet peacefulness was just what we needed to relax, rejuvenate, and center ourselves. I enjoyed the decor and cleanliness, and loved the comfortable beds with their luxurious soft sheets. Rhoni and Cristina are wonderful... More

My husband and I spent our honeymoon prequel at Sagewater Spa right before the holidays and it was pure heaven! The moment we walked in and saw the clean and modern yet warm and elegant aesthetic, we knew we had chosen the right place to decompress and recharge. Although it was our first time there, we made instant friends with... More

Sagewater is simplicity at its best. There are no distractions while giving in to total relaxation. The rooms and grounds are spotlessly clean and well-appointed, with a touch of 50's vintage charm. Our days were spent soaking our cares away in the mineral pool while also enjoying various spa treatments, including amazing massages and facials. Rhoni and Cristina warmly welcomed... More
