This tiny, completely private spa retreat consists of only six guest suites arranged around the beautiful mineral water pool/hot tub. The hosts are charming and attentive, and everything is absolutely immaculate. The light of the high desert sun perfectly melds with the pristine white and sea-foam colour scheme and after one day you'll slow down and start to notice the...

The other reviews say it all: restful, quiet, clean, lovely. Cris, Rhoni, and Sage are the perfect hosts. We wanted for nothing. The mineral water pool is divine with an exquisite mountain view. Desert Hot Springs is a cool little desert town with really good Thai and Mexican food; or bring your own and cook on the grill. We couldn't...

Perfectly clean, completely friendly, quiet and out-of-the-way, the Sagewater Spa is exactly what we needed in a weekend away. The kitchenettes are fully equipped with dishes, pots, pans, and other essentials (including dish soap, salt, pepper and milk for your morning coffee). The pool and hot tub are filled from the natural hot spring. (But I think are they are...

Wonderful 2 night stay ans kicking ourselves we didn't book for longer. The mineral pool is so healing, rooms immaculate and Rhoni & Cristina are the perfect hosts. We felt like we found a new paradise in the desert. So much fun meeting the other guests and sharing stories and wine. Way more than you bargained for...perfection!

If you're looking for a low-key, desert retreat focused on soaking in the incredible mineral waters available in Desert Hot Springs, Sagewater Spa is your place. The accomodations are clean and simple, but the main attraction is the pool/spa filled with warm (and hot) mineral water to ease your body and mind. Rhoni and Cristina are the consummate hostesses, staying...

We recently stayed at the Sagewater Spa and the experience we had hoped for was realized. The owner-managers are on site and available to help with questions, ideas for dinners, etc. Our stay was relaxing, quiet and refreshing. We hope to return for a much longer stay. AK, West Linn, OR

After my second visit, I look forward to returning again and again to Sagewater Spa! The mineral pool is fantastic, the rooms are clean, simple and functional, the owners are friendly and the cinnamon loaf is such a treat. The Sagewater is a place to relax and unwind and getaway from everything. The colors of the place are so perfect...

I've been going to Sagewater for six or seven years now, and after a one-year break, went back again over Valentine's Day. The place only gets better. The hot mineral water simply leeches out the stress. How can you have a better time than padding around in a bathrobe (they provide), slipping in and out of the water, chatting quietly...

What a cool review! Yes, our guests are special! Last weekend, several of our guests decided to cancel their in town reservations and a spontaneous BBQ, wine tasting and a late night soak quietly prevailed. For guests that prefer their privacy , Sagewater Spa offers peace and quiet with private kitchens and the most spectacular views of Mt. San Jacinto....
