Upon arrival Rhoni and Cristina immediately live up to all of their reviews as the most hospitable in the boutique hotel business! Lucky for my man and me - we ended up at Sagewater by accident after We Care was full. Both of us are business travelers and just needed a break! ...we needed to detox and recharge! Well, Rhoni and Cristina welcomed us with open arms. And although we were on a juice fast and could not enjoy the coffee cake upon arrival or enjoy using the sparking clean stainless steel grill...Rhoni and Cristina made sure that we were getting what we needed during our fasting week - rest and long soaks in the hot mineral spa. The week that we stayed at Sagewater was the best week of sleep that I have had in years! Thank you, Rhoni and Cristina, for sharing your corner of the world with us.
Sagewater Spa is a gem.

If you want escape and relaxation, choose the Sagewater Spa. If you want simplicity with style, choose the Sagewater Spa. If you want affable and knowledgeable owners, choose the Sagewater Spa. Each time we visit, we marvel at what Cristina and Rhoni (and not to forget, Sage) have created in this small oasis. And, if the mood takes you, you can always hit the sites knowing that there's calm at the end of your adventures. Or, just take another dip in the mineral pool. You can travel far and wide and not find a better place for unwinding.

We spent 5 nights at Sagewater Spa and came back rejuvenated, restored and refreshed! The place is impeccable in its order and freshness. Because it is a small hotel it is cozy, intimate and friendly. The rooms are comfortable and well appointed w/ views of the mountains and the desert. The hot mineral water in the pool and the spa soothe your aches and calms your spirit. Rhoni and Cristina are the best... they make you feel welcome and at home without being intrusive. They give suggestions for things to do and where to eat. They respond to what is needed. They also seem to attract lovely guests to the Hotel. By the end of the stay we felt as if we had spent a week away w/ friends. I highly recommend this precious get-a-way!

Room Tip: We enjoyed being able to see the mountains

A friend and I recently stayed at the Sagewater and had a great time. We loved how stylish the rooms were and that they had a small kitchen and desk area where we could make our meals. We also loved the hip pool area where we took our mineral dips with the view of the mountains in the background. Best of all we LOVED the owners, Rhoni and Christina. They totally took us under their wings and guided us on the area and on life in general. I would highly recommend this property. It would be a great place to rent for a private party or a corporate team building event.

Room Tip: I loved our corner room where we had a view out of both window.

My partner and I had an amazing weekend stay at Sagewater Spa recently. It was so wonderful, we added a third night and headed back for work at 5am Monday morning. The magic of this small, intimate, cozy hotel is its balance of light and water. The light is clear and white - the water is clear and mineral-laden. The result is a healing energy that is literally transformative. The spa owners, Cristina and Rhoni, were gracious and super-friendly. They arranged a deep-tissue massage for us both, and that experience added to the feeling of relaxation we both benefitted from. We will return as soon as we can - we feel as if we found our home away from home (and away - enough - from the hustle of Palm Springs, a 20-minute drive away).
