Miracle Springs Resort

Miracle Springs Resort


Hot springs around the world have been used for healing purposes for centuries. The word spa is derived from a backronym (created in later times) in Latin, Salus per aquam, health through water.  The meaning has been broadened to such an extent that today it is hard to know what it means.  To me it still means drinking and soaking in mineral spring water.  I have visited many spots around the world to enjoy balneotherapy and the benefits of drinking specialty water.  On our road trip I am introducing my friend to the concept.  We are staying 3 nights in Desert Hot Springs at the Miracle Springs Resort.  This is the best deal I know for a mineral hot spring stay in the United States.  There are small hotels and inns all around town with the water, but only this one, and the sister spa next door, to which guests also have access, offer so much space and so many different water temperatures available 24 hours daily.  Nights under the stars are particularly wonderful in the pools.

My friend has just retired from work and had never experienced body work.  I encouraged him to try it. He enjoyed his first massage tremendously. His therapist was excellent, according to him.  Prices for services here are very reasonable, and I have always had good results.  The hotel has upgraded some of the amenities since my last visit, and changed managers.  The staff is professional, knowledgeable, and very friendly. The initiation of my friend has been very successful.  He is quickly turning into a spa bunny.

If you think spa means nail salon, jacuzzi, or an all-inclusive week-long excercise program I urge you to think again.  Health is our only real wealth.  A few days of mineral water hot spring soaking and drinking can make a world of difference to your wellbeing.

I think that place looks divine… a bit hot for today. but in mid winter would be heavenly. I like the leisure aspect.. the respite to give people that energizing and recharging feeling
I think this place sounds fabulous!!
