Peace & Tranquility in the California Desert at Living Waters Spa

We have spent many weekends in Palm Springs, but until this weekend we have never ventured out to Desert Hot Springs. If you want to experience hot mineral waters than Desert Hot Springs is the place to visit. The town is just minutes from Palm Springs, which is just over 100 miles East of Los Angeles, California. For the clothing optional experience in DHS, whether you are a single person or a couple, there are several options, but if you are looking for a place with a more holistic approach to nudism then visit Living Waters Spa.

As we drove up to Living Waters Spa from the Highway we were unimpressed by the surrounding neighborhoods and the outside of the building, which was originally the Kismet Lodge in the 1960's. However, as we were welcomed inside by Owner Judy we were transformed into an oasis within this desert oasis. As the new age music floated softly on the breeze, we walked past a few sunbathers lounging quietly by the pool looking towards a wall of glass framing the San Bernardino Mountains, we entered our simply Scandinavian style room and kitchen. The simple surroundings, the warm mineral pool and spa and the background music instantly put us into full relaxation mode.

After three days of quiet and pampering I still can't get out of the mediational mode and get myself in the working mode and I've been home for a week. I have so much to say, but honestly just can't seem to get all of the words out just yet. I promise I will later. In the meantime, please enjoy some of the pictures I took while at the spa.

It's important to note that Judy and Jeff
invite singles and couples, but they are not to be mistaken with any of the swinger's clubs/spas in the Desert Hot Springs area. Living Waters is about meditation, quiet, health, mineral waters, and true naturism (they are clothing optional for those of you not quite ready to reveal everything). You can visit for the day, enjoy a massage, a wrap, or a body scrub, or really pamper yourself and stay overnight or two or three.
