My wife and I visit the Palm Springs area a couple times a year and the Living Waters Spa has been on my bucket List for a few years. The overwhelming positive reviews on Trip Advisor made my wife's decision easy, "Ok, let's give it a try." Jeff and Judy have created a location where relaxation and serenity are the focus. The LWS is not a party place, there is no loud music and the guests we spoke with were all there for quality time away from the fast pace of life. Yes, the 75 minute couples massage by Judy and Lilly was the most relaxed we have been; undisturbed massage with special LWS unscented oils and quiet music in a pleasant air conditioned massage room.

We were day guests only this first visit. If a day guest make reservations. I suggest you take Judy and Jeff up on the offer to be at LWS at 10:00, enjoy the mineral spa and pool. Plan a couples massage in the afternoon so you can enjoy the healing waters after the massage. Also, the sangria and tea is served spa-side at 3:00.

Couples, regardless of age, visit LWS and enjoy the couples massage tell your special loved one you care......yes, we will return for relaxation and another couples massage.

Living Water Spa is a very special place to relax and rejuvenate your body, mind and spirit. Jeff & Judy open their hearts and home, creating a unique healing experience. Between the perfect mineral water pools and the magnificent massage, (thank you Jeff & Lillie), we were able to regain our balance and connect to what is important in our lives. Thank you Jeff & Judy! Mitakuye Oyasin, C&C

Very friendly owners, nice and clean accommodations as well as the soothing mineral water. Gotta try it! Its an intimate resort that works hard to keep you happy and comfortable. Never got a massage due to other obligations, but very much looking forward to thr couples massage.

My husband and I had a wonderful visit. This was our first stay and we were pleasantly surprised. What a great place to de-stress! The massage was easily the best I have ever had. We will definitely be back!

For those either just dipping into the au natural ways or contemplating it, this post might be worth reading.

I've heard that "You only have one chance to do something for the first time" . I was presented with the opportunity to visit LWS for the day, so I called and spoke with Jeff and asked if there was a chance I might slip in for a massage and a day at the pool. Being my first time, I had more questions than I was willing to ask, but Jeff told me everything I needed to know. Very polite and helpful, not to mention non-judgmental.

I had to drive two hours to get there, so there were plenty of opportunities to back out. As instructed, I arrived at 10am and rang the doorbell. I was met at the door by Judy(one of the owners), and she welcomed me with a warm smile, gave me the grand tour and signed me in. As I was only there for the day, I was given a locker for my belongings and told that towels were available if I did not have one of my own. I quickly filled my locker, and chose one of the chaise lounge chairs poolside.

I was grateful at first that I was the only one there, so I disrobed and swam a few laps in the pool. About 15 minutes after arrival, my masseuse, Lili came by and told me it was time for my massage, so she walked me over to the massage room and began her magic. I could feel the months of stress just melting away with every long rub up my spine. An hour and fifteen minutes can go by very fast. Ms.Lili was very pleasant and informative. Any apprehension I may have had was gone in an instant due to her ability and professionalism. Well worth it when you go. I wouldn't miss one of their massages for the world.

Most of the day was spent between the mineral spring fed spa and the pool. I brought along a good book and left all my cares and inhibitions behind me. Just hours of extreme relaxation and the feeling of freedom this setting bestows on you. At 3pm I was greeted by Lili again with some sangria! What an awesome treat. By now a few couples had shown up and were very easy going and friendly. I met a great couple one from Canada, and one from California.
I cant remember their names, but in the brief time I've known them, I feel like I've known them all my life. They were very supportive and encouraging as we discussed my coming back here for my honeymoon with my wife. (Married 21 years and still waiting for a honeymoon!)

The place is immaculate, guests are like family and their website has all the information. Jeff & Judy (owners) along with Lili, were exactly what I could have hoped for on my first time.
You never forget your first, and I certainly will never forget mine at Living Waters Spa. I sincerely thank Jeff and Judy for allowing me to experience what will undoubtedly become one the the best times in my life. I hope to visit again as I am no longer a "newbie".

Jeff, Judy, Lili and all the guests at LWS....Thank You!
(p.s. Don't change a thing!)

Room Tip: While I was there on a "day pass", I've heard that poolside rooms are perfect!
