Quite a sight we must have been standing there in the middle of the street outside of Sea Mountain, way overdressed, palms sweating, talking ourselves into the courage to lock the car and venture forth. We each took a shot of tequila and a couple of deep breaths, then headed for the entrance.
Our story really begins about 18 months ago when we received in the mail a greeting card - inside written one word "enjoy" - that contained a generous gift certificate to Sea Mountain from "secret admirers." After a year and a half of trying to figure out who gave us this gift and talking about going, we finally reached a point where we both could say "we are ready."
What lies inside the door of Sea Mountain is pretty well described in the other reviews. What we can attest to is that we were immediately put at ease our host and his assistants - is candor and personality is uniquely disarming and we were put instantly at ease. All was going to be just fine.
After enjoying a very nice couple's massage (we have paid twice the rate elsewhere for half the quality) we returned to our room for one more shot of courage, and then took THE PLUNGE literally into the pool. We will keep the details of our wonderful experience to ourselves, but we agree with the other reviewers that there is zero pressure to do anything but relax.
It is unfair to compare Sea Mountain to the full service mega-resorts of the Palm Springs area, so don't come expecting a La Quinta-ish facility. Sea Mountain is more akin to the boutique hotel properties that have been renovated and recently reopened around the area. Rooms are well appointed and tastefully done - our's compared favorably to the more expensive room at one of the very popular retro-hotels in PS that we stayed in during the same trip. The only real weakness is the lack of a solid, on or near site food option...but that can be easily solved by bringing in your own snacks and/or planning a nice dinner out - downtown PS and five star dining are all very close.
If a Sea Mountain experience is something that you would even remotely consider, our advice is to break out the calendar and give them a call.
