A relatively well-kept secret among resort savvy San Diego residents is Two Bunch Palms Resort & Spa in Desert Hot Springs. The 56-acre natural hot mineral springs desert oasis features 45 guestroom suites and villas as well as a California-cuisine restaurant and a world-renowned spa with a menu consisting of more than 45 treatments, including 12 varieties of massage, body wraps, facials, salt rubs, and Watsu, an exquisite form of water therapy. A natural hot springs flows through the heart of the property, landscaped with verdant gardens and preserved wilderness areas.

Although within the resort it feels like you are a million miles from nowhere, Two Bunch Palms is located only an hour east of San Diego, in the Coachella Valley, adjacent to Palm Springs. The exclusive playground for movie stars during the “Roaring Twenties” also offers private hot mineral tubs, pool, saunas, walking trails, Clay Cabana mud baths, and private tennis courts.

The juxtaposition of swaying palms against a backdrop of distant snow-topped mountains creates a serenely beautiful and relaxing setting where the favorite pastime, at any time or the day or night, is a soak or face-up float in the 104-degree mineral-rich water of the grotto. Here, where the waters of health ascend through the geological fault of Miracle Hill and feed the mineral spring, cloud watching or stargazing in sublime silence is the norm.Two Bunch Palms

Letting go of the outside world and holiday stress is inevitable after slipping into a luxurious Two Bunch robe, which is the spa’s typical guest attire. This symbol for the freedom to simply “be,” in a place that possesses a magical ambiance, is an expression of the resort’s commitment and devotion to serenity, restoration and rejuvenation: the perfect holiday retreat and gift for anyone.

For two consecutive years, Two Bunch Palms won the “Favorite Hot Springs Spa” in the annual SPA magazine Silver Sage Readers’ Choice Awards. USA Today ranked them as one of 10 great places to relax your mind and body in 2008.
