De-stress in the Desert at One of Palm Springs' Best Spas

Can you feel the tension in your shoulders or the knots in your back? If so, it's time to put a spring in your step with a pampering day at one of Palm Springs' top spas. From mineral water day spas to luxurious resort spas with every detail covered, you'll find the perfect treatment for you in the desert.

If you're looking for a truly pampering experience, try The Well Spa at the Miramonte. This award-winning spa in Indian Wells is known for its one-of-a-kind treatments (think wine baths and honey massages) and its stellar service. From the moment you're greeted with a coin to toss in the wishing well to when you leave with a custom-blended oil for aromatherapy, you'll be well taken care of at this relaxing spa.

If you're interested in the natural mineral waters that run beneath Desert Hot Springs, you can experience them for yourself with a trip to one of the city's day spas. Our pick? Two Bunch Palms Spa Resort, a scenic and secluded resort that offers mineral water pools in its Grotto area and spa services like facials, mud therapy, reiki and lymphatic massage.
