"Spa Bliss For Two"…oh, how very true! We spent an absolutely wonderful afternoon and evening at Sea Mountain Inn last Sunday. Thanks to all who have made SMI the experience of a lifetime: To Dewey and Julie for creating this lover's paradise, to the SMI staff for keeping that vision and vibe alive, and to the many amazing members -...

What a nice little resort tucked away in the desert. A true gem, the only reason to go to Desert Hot Springs! The staff is amazing and the grounds are zen like! If your looking for a romantic get away to recharge, this is the place!

We would have never gone to Desert Hot Springs except for the excellent reviews we have read on Sea Mountain Inn. The proprietors Dewey and his wife Julie are hands on managers who totally oversee this private oasis. Like a private club with no children is aimed at loving couples who prefer sun, music and a bit of warm water.... More

Sea Mountain....the adult Disneyland. Everyone is friendly, happy, having fun. My boyfriend & I are SO grateful we had the courage to come to this place. Something for everyone. You can find a quiet place to relax, get a massage, socialize, meet interesting people from all over the world. Never met anyone that's pushy. Go to Adventure Land if you... More

Like many others on here I will start off by saying that we are not in the lifestyle. Well not to the extent that most would consider the lifestyle. We are definitely a very playful couple. SMI is a very unique place. We just went for the day since it was the first time we have ever attended this type... More

This was our 6th time staying at SMI and we continue to LOVE it here. We always have such a great time and the staff does an amazing job at taking care of all your needs! This past weekend was a great theme weekend and the crowd was so much fun. Despite what you read on some the reviews, they... More

This place is a blast because of the people that meet and enjoy each other. Cots and lounges are old and dirty and those with umbrellas need them replaced. The pool can get pretty funcky - rarely do the staff clean the water and it can get pretty nasty... However the people are fun and enjoying each other.... bathrooms semi-decent... More

We keep coming back, and every time the hotel itself is nicer. An accepting, warm, fun atmosphere is created by the staff and embraced by the customers. In general the clientele is high class, educated and open. Most of the customers had either been there before or plan to return, which says a lot!
