Reinvent yourself in the new year by indulging in some of the area’s finest spas. Enjoy pampering at full-service resort hotels, elegant day spas, spas within intimate boutique hotels, medical spas, and spas built around the area’s natural mineral springs.

If you choose a full-service resort, consider Miramonte Resort & Spa’s Tuscan-inspired THE WELL SPA in Indian Wells. Take advantage of one of the spa’s signature body treatments, then relax in the warm sun or a private cabana. Complete your experience with a Swiss shower.

For an intimate atmosphere, check out ESTRELLA SPA at Palm Springs’ distinctive Viceroy boutique resort or FEEL GOOD SPA at the trendy Ace Hotel & Swim Club. Commune with friends at Ace’s Clay Bake mud party.

Many spas combine pampering with fitness and health. At PARKER PALM SPRINGS, a luxurious 22,000-square-foot spa offers all the massages, facials, and beauty services a body would want.

AGUA SERENA SPA at the Hyatt Regency Indian Wells Resort & Spa in Indian Wells will invigorate the new you with distinctive treatments such as Juniper Berry Polish featuring a mineral-rich, crushed olive stone and sea salt body polish and raindrop Vichy. Or slip into maximum relaxation during The Shirodhara treatment at SPA DESERT SPRINGS at JW Marriott Desert Springs Resort & Spa. Enjoy warm oil poured over the center of your forehead (the “third eye”), followed by a scalp massage and facial therapy.

If you’d like to take advantage of the area’s abundant healing waters, head to Desert Hot Springs, where several resort hotels are built around hot mineral-spring water pools. In addition to the celebrity getaway TWO BUNCH PALMS RESORT & SPA, several other spa resorts offer appreciable outdoor soaking options, many with awe-inspiring views of the mountains that ring this valley. And if sunning and swimming au naturel appeals to you, several clothing-optional resorts feature excellent spa facilities. Undress and decompress at LIVING WATERS CLOTHING-OPTIONAL MINERAL WATER SPA RESORT or A SEA MOUNTAIN NUDE RESORT, SPA, CLUB, AND HOTEL.
