“A true 'oasis.'”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 1, 2012

We have just returned home after a lovely week at The Springs. We stayed in the deluxe villa which is fantastic. It is a few meters from the resort but we were provided with a golf buggy to make the journey back and forth! The villa is surrounded by plants and has a small lawn area with a gas barbeque and chairs. It gives you privacy but still 24 hour access to the mineral pools. We usually ended up going down in the evening and sitting by the gas fire on comfy armchairs after soaking in the pools, looking up at a sky filled with stars. The resort is small and the staff extremely friendly and helpful. You really were made to feel 'part of the family.' We hope to visit again one day and have no hesitation in recommending The Springs if you want a small, intimate resort which never seems crowded (in the evening we usually had to place to ourselves). We would certainly stay in the villa again but also talked to people staying in the pool-side rooms who were very happy with their choice.

Room Tip: We would recommend the deluxe villa if you are travelling with more than 2 persons (we were with our...

My husband and I have enjoyed going to the spring for at least 8 years. We wish that we lived closer, because we'd go much more often. Currently it's a 7 hour drive and while we drove home from our last visit, we both agreed it was well worth it. This is the one place we can truly relax. The Spring is clean, well kept grounds, nicely kept pools and plush, comfy beds. There's a perfect place for the sunset and in the evening an outdoor couch with fire pit or take a soak and look up at the stars. And, it's so easy. This is a small intimate place with full spa services, low key use of the pools and my favorite dry/wet sauna (pour water over hot rocks and you just steam up)...all accessbile 24/7. Cold mineral water is available by the pitcher so you take the water on the inside as well as the outside. This is a place to be quiet, take in the desert and dunk in the waters. We always reserve one of the rooms with the small and fully equipped kitchen so we never have to leave.

Room Tip: I recommend a room with the fully equipped kitchen (bring groceries if you are picky), otherwise you...

The Spring is a perfect retreat. My wife and I have visited four times now and we never want to leave. It is placid, serene and wonderfully relaxing. The staff are top notch and the mineral pools are truly special. The Spring is a Desert Hot Springs winner all around.

Ahh, The Spring. My new love, my home away from home. My daughter found this amazing and beautiful location as a gift to me for my 40th birthday. We had the best weekend EVER. So relaxing and I had the most AMAZING massage of my life. The mineral pools (open 24 hours) leave your skin feeling so soft. We have been there at least 7 times since April of this year. The staff is wonderful and make you feel so at home, yet pampered. A wonderful location to unwind, relax with a cocktail poolside and reflect. The grounds are extremely clean, well kept and zen-like. I highly recommend this hidden treasure. I will be back as many times as I can afford to! Thank you, The Spring, for providing such a wonderful escape from the city.

Room Tip: Definitely choose a room with a kitchen. Bring some pasta, cheese and wine and eat dinner poolside...

our experience at the spring was awesome. being a first timer to a hot spring resort, i wasnt sure what to expect. upon arriving you have to ring a doorbell. the person in charge opened the door and let us in. when we walked in we could see how amazing the grounds looked. upon entering the lobby we were offered some, what the person said, was mineral water from their well. it was the best drinking water we have ever tasted. we were given a tour of the grounds. they were amazing, very tropical and green. we were taken to our room. it was small but comfortable. there was also more drinking water in there. much to my surprise there was no tv or phone. it took some getting used to but i didnt mind. there is wi-fi. the pool and spas were great. each one has their own temperature setting. it was very peaceful and relaxing and not crowded, something im not used to. overall an awesome resort. we love it and we will be back again.

Room Tip: rooms are small but comfortable. if you want a bigger room get one with a kitchen.

I am writing this in response to a negative review i read. This hotel is a place to disconnect and reconnect with things more important than t.v. & technology, even though they have internet. If you are looking for a large hotel/resort for partying, with a restaurant, entertainment and a bar this hotel in not for you. If on the other hand you are looking for serenity, relaxation, water therapy, and time and space to renew, this is the hotel for you! I stayed here for three days and it was one of the most relaxing getaways that I can remember. I will admit when I got there and there was no tv i freaked out a bit, but we ended up listening to music and talking, and in the end it was a blessing that there was no tv. The room was beautiful...great floors, linen white curtains, adorable kitchen...And the mineral water is fab. When you first pull up to the hotel its a bit strange but the moment you walk through the hotel door it all changes! I cant wait to return!

Room Tip: Kitchen rooms, room #9, And the private mountain suite to the left of the entrance.
