I have stayed here a bunch of times with my now wife. Its very relaxing. We love sitting with the other quests having drinks and cheese in the evening, or a late night swim, or just enjoying the quietness of the place. It is close to Palm Springs with the fun, food, shopping it has, the outlet malls is also... More

The wife and I love to come here to reelaxxxxx! No tv's, no parties, just a place to revive. Clean and comfortable with some soothing mineral waters. Can't wait to come back. It's very recommended for people learning to be comfortable in their own skin.

Had a great stay with my wife at the resort. No pressure, no hassles, no problem. Would definitely recommend to anyone that wants to try out the "Clothing Optional" experience. Remember, it is optional.

Yes, it gets hot in Desert Hot Springs in the summer, but with the mineral water pools right at your feet, a refreshing swim is just what you need. Jeff and Judy made us feel totally welcome and comfortable from the moment we arrived. The kitchen in our room allowed us to make our own meals most of the time... More

Great little spot to lay out and get a tan with no tan lines. The owners are friendly and the rooms are comfortable. Super hot weather, no clothes, nice pool, adults only, good times. Definitely will be coming back.

Jeff ,Judy, and staff thank you for your hospitality and over all great experience. Both my wife and I were welcome and fell in love with the safe and warm experience that you and the staff gave to the two of us. We look forward coming back very soon. Thank you again.

We have been going to Living Waters since 2004. It is our favorite place in the world. The resort is very clean, well run, and the mineral water spa and pool is the best! Very tranquil and relaxing, and the massage cannot be beat anywhere. Jeff and Judy are the best hosts you can want. You must come to this... More

Jeff and Judy are very friendly and welcoming. The room is spacious, recently renovated, and clean. The small pool is the right temperature for soaking for an extended period of time and is shaded. A simple breakfast is served at 8 and there is a choice of wine or punch at 3. There is a view of the distant mountains... More

My husband booked us in for 2 days at Living Waters. We'd been to wonderful natural hot springs hotels in Death Valley, Sacramento, Wyoming, and elsewhere, and I really enjoyed them. The owners here are very friendly and decidedly proud of their massage services and water. Sadly, the water isn't very hot (104--which some people like).. I prefer a much... More

We are honored that you gave our mineral water Spa Hotel a try and sorry that it wasn't for you. We do work hard at providing our guests with our very best and sometimes there just isn't a "fit." Pool temperature is a very personal issue. Mother earth provides us with amazing pure, odor free, mineral water at 105 degrees.... More

My fiancé and I were looking to take advantage of the area's minerals pools and came across this gem. The price for the both of us was reasonable and the people who work there are very friendly and welcoming. Neither of us had been to a clothing optional spa before and found it to be easy to get used to,... More
