A Review of Living Waters Spa in Southern California

Living Waters Spa – We decided to check out Living Waters Spa, a clothing optional resort and resort in Desert Hot Springs. This is just 8 miles from Terra Cotta, right near Palm Springs. Living Waters Spa is an oasis in the desert, with a view of the magnificent San Jacinto Mountains. We reserved a regular poolside room for one night. One of the owners, Jeff, gave us a quick tour, and we settled in. The room had all we needed – a bed, mini-refrigerator, and toilet. For other lodgings, there are rooms with a full kitchen in addition to condos. (Day visits are also an alternative for those who do not wish to remain overnight.)

The property essentially consist of a hot tub, pool, Finnish sauna and massage room. The Finnish dry sauna is actually a restored classic sauna remaining from LWS’s days as a 1960’s “spa-tel.” They can be structured a lot like Terra Cotta, with the rooms encircling the pool and hot tub. But what’s special about their water is that it’s pure mineral water straight out of the earth. Additionally they do not have to heat the pool or hot tub themselves because it is naturally heated to 105 degrees by the Earth. Since it is http://www.videonudist.com like this, they do not have to add any chemicals, salt or chlorine. It’s a pretty sweet set up and unique to this resort. The water supply is all mineral water so you can drink all you need on tap too.

There were a smattering of other guests while we were there, mainly couples, and we chatted with them in http://www.nudistclip.com . They do enable singles and strive to be inclusive, which is a big plus in our book. Most people were naked, but a few kept their bathing suits on, which is their choice since it’s clothes-optional. Still, I was surprised that this relaxing experience didn’t lead them to shake off their inhibitions and try social nudity. Perhaps they simply do not understand how much better it feels to be naked in the water and sauna.
Close some of the plants surrounding the pool was a hummingbird feeder. I loved watching the little hummingbirds quickly flapping their wings and perching there. In one upper corner of the building, there is a visible nest, and Jeff told us that for the past few years they’ve returned there to lay eggs. He’s truly strapped a camera up there so as to get an up close view of fresh infants. So if you see later in the winter, you might get a view of these little chicks!

Indoors they also have a communal room with tables and seats where you are able to hang out, socialize and say hello to Doc, their amazing African Grey parrot. She will say hello, but see about putting your fingers in the cage! There is free Wifi too, if you have to connect.
In the day, Jeff and Judy brought out their daily complimentary portion of hors d’oeuvres to the hot tub – cheeses, crackers, dips, fruit, hibiscus tea, wine and other snacks to nibble on. This is also an opportunity for them to mingle with the guests and engage us in a mind boggling game of attempting to guess all the fixings in one of the dips. The individual to guess all of them wins a massage. None of us figured out the last fixing. Regarding food, they don’t have a restaurant on the premises, but they do serve a modest breakfast every morning. For other meals you can order in food from one of the nearby restaurants or go out to eat.
Being a spa, among the chief features here is the massage therapy. We did not get a massage, but I’m confident it is wonderful. They have developed their own techniques and offer a couple of different kinds. Jeff and Judy are both accredited massage therapists, and they told us this is their passion. Additionally they offer massage workshops for couples through the year.
We had recommend Living Waters Spa for a quiet place to relax and rejuvenate. It is therapeutic on many levels, from the massage to the mineral water to the majestic views of the mountains. See the spa’s web site for more actions in the place. For FKK members, we should remind you that LWS is an affiliate location, in order to get a 20-25% discount on your stay. In browsing their website, I found LWS also offers a 25% reduction to breast cancer survivors! So that’s pretty awesome.
