I can not say enough good things about those four nights and five days we spent at the Living Waters Spa in Desert Hot Springs, CA. It was an incredible experience.
The days were spent enjoying the natural beauty of this part of the country. We could have spent several weeks here and not run out of hikes, drives, museums, galleries and things to do. Joshua Tree National Park, Palm Springs, Little Morongo Canyon, Big Morongo Canyon Preserve only scratch the surface of local gems to see.
Living Waters Spa is also a gem not to be missed. Jeff and Judy are most welcoming hosts at this wonderful spa. We found the natural hot spring waters to be just what was needed to ease the pain and tension of living and working in Manhattan. We stayed in one of their larger rooms and found the views, kitchen, and comfortable bed were perfect for our needs. Clean and comfortable with easy access to the pool and spa tub.
We were fortunate to have booked this Thanksgiving time frame with them. We found the other guests were upbeat, intelligent souls who also were happy to have found this spot or glad to be returning back for another visit. We became friends with a number of couples during the spa soaks and afternoon treats that Jeff and Judy provided. Then on Thanksgiving the owners invited all guests to bring a dish to pass and they provided the turkey. This dinner was one we will remember forever. The food was gourmet quality delicious, the conversation was lively, and several of the guests provided entertainment. The magician warmed the crowd but the main act was the one that was that rocked the house. The couple that were musicians played and sang a set of songs that were enjoyed by all. A high end Martin acoustic guitar and a vintage french fiddle complimented the velvet voices that melted the room. It was a privilege to be at this great meal and hear the music.
We will certainly return to Living Waters Spa and will spread the word word to worthy friends. We will keep it secret from those who are loud and obnoxious boors.
Thank you Jeff and Judy!
