After a very stressful fall and early winter, my best friend and I booked 5 nights at Sagewater to celebrate our birthdays and get some much needed relaxation. From the moment we got there (even though there was a massive wind storm!) everything was amazing. I've never felt so cared for at a hotel or spa--Rhoni and Cristina were always... More

I stayed here with a friend for one night last July after going to the Integratron. I was told they typically have a two-night minimum, but since I agreed to purchase a massage, they bent the rules and let us stay one night. It was HOT in the desert, so there were only two other rooms booked, which was fine... More

We loved our stay at Sagewater. Everything about it was relaxing and peaceful. I was most impressed with the cleanliness. It was immaculate. The shower had great water pressure, the sheets were heavenly, and the kitchenette has almost everything you need. I was surprised though that they provided a coffee pot but no coffee! It would have been nice with... More

Been here before and it just continues to get better. New pool, and fresh paint. Same lovely owners and Sage the adorable doggie. Had a great massage this time as well. So wonderful to find a clean place that is well maintained with an eye to quality sheets that hug you. Can't wait to come back.

Truly a place I love! There is an immediate sense of peace and tranquility that will envelope you the moment you exit your car. You will then be given the warmest of welcomes from Rhoni or Cristina and will soon enter a sanctuary of relaxation. From start to finish, the love is in the details as every consideration has been... More

Sagewater is my new getaway for those times when you just need to rejuvenate the self.

Clean, pretty, mid-century lodging with great coffee and a cute and well-lit room, with a world-class natural mineral hot spring pool right outside your door. The owners couldn't be nicer and they make you feel so at home. 30 minute desert drive to great Joshua Tree hikes. Go there.

I highly recommend Sagewater for anyone seeking tranquility and healing, turquoise waters. We live in LA, and make Sagewater our weekend getaway, but ideally would love to spend an entire week or more here! The hosts are very friendly and welcoming, and have a terrific list of places to see and do in the area. Their recommendations are spot on.... More
