Wonderful time at this quirky and delightful spot.
The pros: the mineral waters are amazing as are the very special classes and delightful instructors.
the restaurant was mostly delicious with nice staff as was the staff in the coffee /happy hour area.
very relaxing location with interesting guests from those who have been coming for 20 years to LA folks for a quick getaway

Cons:
Many of the staff members have no idea what is going on at the property and dont make an effort to help you. This happened on more than a few occasions over our long weekend stay. Ask where a certain place on the property is and the reply is "I dont know go ask the front desk". Not ok.

The room was incredibly dark and had no closet or drawers. Just a few hangers lying around. These are easy fixes and seem like basic things a hotel room should require.

The "towels" poolside are basically small tablecloths that dont absorb anything. Pretty but not useful.

The spa needs a major overhaul or a reduction in its prices. Too much commotion going on to be relaxing.

Look forward to returning; with a few tweaks this place would be perfect.

The food at Two Bunch Palms is exquisite. It's healthful and fresh of course, but in the capable hands of Executive Chef Santos Perez, it's also an elevated experience. Chef Perez combines locally sourced ingredients in innovative, exciting ways... this is not your standard health spa fare. A menu standout during our too short two-day stay was the beautifully garnished 3 Grain Coconut Porridge. We were also captivated by the colorful Breakfast Bowl, artfully arranged Mezze platter and cool and crunchy Jicama tacos (where the taco shell is a thin round of raw jicama).

Kudos to the incredible staff as well. From the friendly front desk attendant to the waitstaff and hosts at the restaurant to the maintenance and cleaning crews, everyone working for TBP is kind, helpful and service-oriented.

The healing waters are the draw to this stunning desert resort, but for me, the exceptional cuisine is the real key to a sublime spa experience.

Two Bunch Palms checks all the boxes in my book. It's spacious, green and I truly feel disconnected from work and the city life while on property. The grounds are massive and very well kept with plenty of paths and different trails to keep my walks interesting. It's tucked away in Desert Hot Springs and really feels isolated from the busy freeways & Palm Springs downtown. There isn't much nearby the resort, but that's fine because we would rather spend our time on property and make the most of the amenities and public spaces. There are so many unique areas to enjoy a book, cocktail or take in some sun.

The highlights of this property are the stunning mineral pools and incredible restaurant. The entire property seems like it is getting refreshed & revamped - particularly they are opening a whole new mineral pools and treatment areas. You get a great view of the new areas as well as the valley as a whole from the restaurant situated on the upper level of the property. The restaurant has a healthy & upscale menu that had appealing and delicious options at each meal. Our group was very impressed with the food quality, plating and service. The bar program is extensive and unique.

In my opinion this resort is the best option in the Coachella Valley for those who want to get away, relax and unwind. We are all looking forward to our next trip to TBP!

The location is still the same: amazing and the hot water pools but can’t make for the uninterested and unhelpful attitude of the staff. Undertrained, under briefed. The valets never brought our luggage to the room and when asked about it failed to even acknowledge the problem, much less apologise. The food was relegated to the cramped “twine” room (tea and wine-really?) as they had closed the dinning room at 1pm...no hot water directions or etiquette in keeping with some of the guests comments on booking.com and then the spa: took 2 weeks of back and forth by email to finally book a session. Service there reminds of the glory days of Eastern Europe and the USSR. Who says the US is special ? You can really tell the economy is topping when so called 5 star resorts pull out this shabby a service level!

We booked a Master Suite, supposedly a large luxurious accommodation and were guaranteed a sofa bed. Upon arrival, there was no sofa bed. The sofa was rock hard as were the cushion less wooden chairs. There was no comfortable seating in the room. There was no closet and the room only contained a rack for hanging clothes and two very small drawers. We had to live out of the suitcase. The in room refrigerator was barely below room temperature. The bathroom sink was almost unusable since the distance from the faucet bottom to the drain was less than 3 inches with no room to scrub hands. The shower only provided hot water for a very short time. Due to the lack of hot water my husband and I had to shower one hour apart, waiting for hot water. Towels were difficult to get. No toiletries such as mouth wash, were provided. In addition, no bottled water was available. An exterior mineral bath hot tub was part of the room accommodation. Not only was the tub slimy, apparently not properly cleaned, but it was not hot enough. The bathroom lights, despite being turned off flicked off and on all night. Window coverings were drop shades which required considerable strength and effort to operate as the chain mechanism hurt our hands. In addition, the shades did not block out the morning sunlight.
In short, we booked and paid for a luxury accomodation and were provided with a substandard, poorly functioning room.
We had enough and checked out ahead of schedule.

Our daughter was to have a wedding at this place. Both she and her fiancé had talked numerous times to management. In fact, they were told that once they showed up to look around the grounds and find a place they wanted. On the day of the wedding, May 30, 2021, my daughter and her fiancé were advised by management that they had no information regarding the event and would not allow the event to occur unless a $2,500 fee was paid. Keep in mind the place didn't have to provide any services at all as the wedding was standup and would only last 15 minutes. The manager advised the upcoming newly weds four hours before the event was to happen. You can only imagine the anxiety level as there were family members who had flown in to attend the event. There were three deluxe rooms and one suite that had been reserved. Two of the deluxe rooms and the suite were for two nights and one deluxe room was for three nights. These rooms are not cheap! But because the event was to take place on the grounds, it seemed reasonable for family members to stay at the resort. Once the manager refused to budge from his position, the entire family and friends worked together to locate another venue. Success was had just an hour before the ceremony. We found a beautiful resort named Casa de Monte located in Palm Springs, CA. This resort once they found out what the Two Bunch Palms had done, they immediately set up chairs, had an arch for the couple to say their vows, played music, ceremony was in a secluded area and the grounds were magnificent! What a life savor this place was and they did not price gouge us either like Two Bunch Palms was trying to do. Back to Two Bunch Palms: the grounds are in dire need of maintenance. No room service. Will only provide additional towels and empty trash when requested. Not customer service oriented and price gouging by adding $3.00 per drink to the price listed for mixes used and ice. BUYER BE WARNED! We'll NEVER stay here again nor will family members and friends who were with us!

The actual springs and outdoor areas were lovely. No complaints there at all.

It’s the accommodation that needs serious improvement. I stayed in the “ springs” room near the pools. It’s very very basic for the price. It’s all concrete and slight touches of wood, but ultimately its not luxury you feel but hard cold utilitarian.

The lighting in the room is also so poor I needed my phone light to find anything.

And the “ water bugs” I was told that were in my room every night…., , were roaches. I know the difference.

The mattress was especially bleak, which made the hot springs especially wonderful.

Sorry guys… I hate to give a bad review but the hotel needs to take notice. These are easily fixable things that need a bit of a cash infusion to sort out but I’m sure its money well spent. I hope the hotel fixes these things.

The food was good. The service, although super nice, was inefficient and the restaurant understaffed. To get even a drink takes 20 minutes of waiting. But because they’re so nice you feel a bit sorry for them so you don’t complain.

So? In short..
Great bathing pool areas
Nice outdoor area/ The Grotto super nice

The food good….but give it time. Don’t go starving.

And the rooms are dismal. Concrete utilitarian dismal like an apt complex in Moscow….. so from that perspective, way overpriced.

And again, those were roaches I saw and not “ water bugs” in my room every night!!

……..roaches and waterbugs are totally different classes of insects and not related. I know the difference.

I actually left a day early because I couldn’t take the thought of a roach on my bed in the middle of the night.

I needed a sleeping pill to get rid of the anxiety about the roaches and not to mind or notice the uncomfortable bed.

Slightly ironic, considering this is officially a health spa.

I live local, visiting this property for many years Yesterday, I called the restaurant 4:30ish explained that I was with friends on a tennis vacation and would like to come over by 5:30 for cocktails/dinner. I asked if we needed a reservation and a nice gentleman said they weren't busy then and we would be fine to come over. At the the gate, I explained my recent conversation with restaurant. The guard said that we needed a reservation to enter. I asked him to call. He did, said the restaurant wasn't accepting any more RSVPs. I asked to call. He told me to circle out of the property; park on street to make my call. The guard was being intimating so I pulled forward but wasn't feeling comfortable street parking with 4 ladies at dusk. As I went to circle out, a nice gentleman thought we were valeting. I rolled down my window to explain. The valet let me try to call, but no answer. The kind valet offered to let us go the restaurant to discuss and offered to cart us. As we opened the car doors, the entrance guard came rushing on a cart with radio and forcefully said I had been told to leave the property; it was private property and we were trespassing. He kept escalating the situation as I tried to explain and I became nervous to leave ASAP. It's a shame his position has the ability to make the first impression. Is the culture of this great property changing? I don't plan to return and potentially subject myself to being accosted in this way again especially in front of guests.

These people at Two Bunch Palms took our money and would not refund even .01 one cent after we begged them to re-schedule or cancel our reservation due to a death of our dear friend's 21 year old daughter. I explained the death and how we could not possibly keep our reservation to Two Bunch Palms. They were callous, cold and completely uncaring. If they can't care about a customer's very personal needs how would they possibly care for ANYTHING about their customers on site and their physical safety, cleanliness, health etc. They pretend they are an image of health and caring but they are incredibly cold and callous to their customers needs.

My wife and I are retired and have spent the past four years hiking the national parks and staying at the park grand lodges. That’s to give you an idea of who we are. Last February we planned to spend 5 days touring Joshua Tree National Park which does not have a lodge. After looking for something special nearby we picked Two Bunch Palms based on some internet reviews.

Well, it’s an ok hotel and we thought the restaurant was good. But, after a long day hiking it was nothing special. First, it was like getting into Fort Knox sometimes. The guard was skeptical that we were bona fide guests. I guess the hiking clothes were improper attire. Then there was poor information and even poorer signage. It was a couple days before we realized there was a coffee shop. It had no sign and we thought it was for private parties. Then, once discovered, and after getting what we thought was complimentary coffee and muffins we very presented with a bill for the muffins as we started to leave—not cheap! One day we walked through the spa which we though had seen better days, No one asked to help us and the sauna looked like a YMCA sauna. In short, because of the lack of concern by the staff, we had the feeling we were intruding on someone else’s private club. We noted all this on a request for a review Two Bunch Palms sent to us, but there was no response. Its ok but we think it is not worth the price.
