“could use some work”
Reviewed April 3, 2013

Went in mid-March with a group of friends for a birthday celebration. Not a good place to celebrate with boisterous friends as there is a "whisper" on the grounds policy. Okay, that's fair if that's why people are there. We stayed in a casita that has seen better days. Part of the fridge fell off when the door was opened. The cheap formica counter was chipped. The wall cooler was so loud when it came on it sounded like a train in the room. We had to have it on because the wind and road noise was too loud to keep the door or window open at night. the food in the restaurant was okay. Nothing spectacular. I admit the grounds were lovely, but the pond was so overstocked with turtles, ducks and fish they would nearly kill each other, even the fish, trying to get food from us. Seemed kind of sad, really. I understand it has recently been purchased and I hope the new owners take care to return it to its glory days.

My husband and I were joined by our college-aged daughter for Easter weekend and we loved it. I had no idea the grounds were so expansive and the mature landscaping and wildlife pond (fish, turtles, ducks) were gorgeous. The spa treatments were first-rate and I felt like this was a spa that has a hotel attached rather than the spa being an afterthought. The service and food were both more than adequate. We had a newer room which was very nice. It's not the Ritz but neither are the prices, nor the vibe. It was a charming, relaxing stay and we'll be back. having dinner in yoga pants = priceless.

Room Tip: If you want convenient access to the pools and spa ask for a Grotto room.

My husband and I travel a lot - much of the time for business, but plenty of vacation as well. Two Bunch Palms is one of the most relaxing places we've discovered. It's comfortable but not fancy. Excellent food and out of this world treatments. A fantastic place to unplug and rejuvenate.

My husband and I had a plan for total relaxation and peace. Just hours away from home (2 to be exact) and there we were in the middle of heaven for us. I had read a review earlier in the fall from the San Diego Union Tribune and booked our trip in March. The grounds and pools were maintained perfectly. Our room was clean and comfortable. The environment was perfect for complete rest. True the rooms are dated but in great condition, only minutes away from Palm Springs where we spent one afternoon. The hot spring is open until 11 pm so perfect for a late night stroll and soak for more healing time. The trees were musical as the wind rushed through the leaves, stars were bright and mesmerizing. The ponds were our favorite place to spend time, plenty of fish, ducks and turtles to feed and admire. We were graced with the presence of a hawk in the early morning, just added much more pleasure to our experience. We found our little piece of heaven and look forward to a return visit!

Room Tip: Casa Blanca has private jacuzzis, and private patios. It is more expensive but worth it if you prefe...

My husband and I had a wonderful overnight stay at Two Bunch. We each had facials and massages and the services were wonderful. Kathy Brauer and Jennifer at the front desk were so kind and helpful. They were accommodating, generous and considerate. Soaking in the clean, warm mineral baths were very relaxing and helped quiet our busy minds. We highly recommend staying at Two Bunch.

What a great getaway. Just a heads up to the younger crowd, this is a quiet relaxed environment, not a place to party. My friend and I had the most chilled out time in the hot springs, getting some great massages and the place is really beautiful. The restaurant is stylistically out of date and would feel stuffy if not for half the patrons being in bathrobes. Highly recommend. Our house was HUGE and had its own hot tub.

My husband and I stayed here for our anniversary. It was kind of at the last minute but Jennifer and Danielle were able to make it happen. Danielle put together a package that included a couples massage dinner and breakfast. Our casita was right beside the tennis courts which were in good condition. Our room was big and had a cute little patio that was surrounded by foliage. Our room was very clean and had top of the line shampoos body gels and lotions. The staff had large pool towels laid out for us when we arrived. The inn is very quiet and serene. The restaurant was phenomenal. Thanks Ivan! The spa has an extensive menu and our massage therapists (Mark and Tracy) were very patient and very knowledgeable. We can't wait to go back!

Official Description (provided by the hotel):
Marking 75 years in 2015, Two Bunch Palms has much to celebrate. Last year's incredible renovation of the 270-acre property resulted in 70 'soulful' new room accommodations, a farm-to-table restaurant Essense, passive solar earth mound yoga dome and a new View Point conference center and meeting facility with views of the valley against the San Jacinto Mountains. This physical transformation, including the addition of a 3.5-Acre solar field, puts Two Bunch Palms on the destination spa map as the first "Sustainable Wellness Resort" in North America and the first carbon-neutral resort. A legacy that spans several generations of guests-from notorious gangsters to Hollywood elite to romantic spa seekers-the property and its newest incarnation brings a rich and storied history full circle. This adult-only sanctuary (guests must be 18 or older) invites you to explore the four pillars of the resort: waters, spa, movement and cuisine. Their renowned, natural lithium-infused spring grotto features two mineral water pools carefully kept at a consistent temperature to ensure therapeutic and mood-enhancing properties. Guests are encouraged to "take to the 600-year old waters" and connect body with spirit before enjoying the spa well-known for its intuitive healers and authentic treatments. The new Essense restaurant features healthier gourmet dining prepared by a Le-Cordon Bleu trained chef with the help of a PHD nutritionist. With a nourished body, guests may partake in more than 35 wellness activities, such as meditation, art classes, tai chi, qigong and yoga in the beautiful new dome. ... more   less
