Sagewater is one of the best kept secrets in the desert. . . quiet, private, and simple, with a vibe that is savory and personal. Rhoni and Cristina make this place feel like home. The natural hot mineral waters are magical and flow from their own deep well that draws natural waters from the underground aquifer rich in healing properties.... More

continues to be a retreat when visiting West Coast....the water mineral pool is for guests only...the owners have been in business for a long time and are outstanding ; they kind of read the minds of thieir guests...all distractions (view, food, messages, etc) are strictly natural and charming. Best of all- I can sleep through the night..a rarity for me.

This trip was about healing. Instead of going to some kind of fitness boot camp, I decided that the water at Sagewater would be the best healing for me -- and the best motivation to get into a swim fitness routine. Warm water, sunny skies, low humidity, peaceful surroundings, fresh desert air-- well put them all together and it spells... More

The knowing simplicity. As Philip Glass is to music...We never adjusted to west coast time during this short trip, so each morning in the perfect water, watching the clear star-filled sky lighten ... transformative.

My friend and I had a fabulous stay at Sagewater that neither of us will ever forget! After a week of negotiating the Los Angeles freeways to attend a three day conference, we plopped down into the mineral pool to wash away the tensions. Within the hour we both had a wonderful massage. The three nights were heady and beautiful... More

I just returned from another incredible weekend at Sagewater Spa. I try to get out their 3-4 times a year in each season because I love the subtle changes in the desert landscape and night skies. Plus, there is no other place that I can fully relax. The water, the linens, the deep massages but mostly the quiet and respect... More

We had a great time at this beautiful little place. It's hard to tell what was better, soaking in their amazing spring water or the way they treated us. We also had incredible massages. Thank you SageWater!

My boyfriend surprised me with a stay here this past weekend, for our 2nd long weekend at Sagewater Spa - and it was just as amazing and magical as the 1st time! When Christina and Rhoni (and Sage, their pup) greeted us at the door, they welcomed us 'home' with a hug and their famous coffee cake. They treat you... More

Sagewater Spa is the ideal place for a get away relaxation break. Rhoni and Christina are simply the best. They make you feel like you have been close friends for years and they cater to your every need. This little slice of heaven in the hot springs is unique comfortable and best of all, the water has magic powers. You... More

I almost don't want to write this review for fear that the outstanding and magical Sagewater Spa will be overbooked from now until eternity and we will sadly never be able to stay there again. From the tastefully minimal midcentury design, to the perfectly heated healing mineral waters, to the legendary coffee cake one receives upon arrival (and jar of... More
