At 38,000 square feet, the Spa Desert Springs has it all and has already earned widespread acclaim for luxurious details such as Turkish-inspired hammams, desert-inspired citrus scrubs and body treatments, indoor and outdoor communal areas, programmable Desert Rain showers and a decadent VIP suite called the Spa Sanctuary staffed by a personal attendant. The spa is also equipped with a cutting-edge fitness center offering everything from Mind & Body Yoga classes to private training for brides-to-be, a Spa Bistro serving organic produce and free-range meats, a full spa retail shop, and The Patrick Marchesson Salon.
The Spa Sanctuary, a luxurious private retreat, features its own relaxation lounge with an indoor/outdoor fireplace, HD digital TV, hydrotherapy bath tub, double vanity, rain shower, personal treatment rooms and a private courtyard with a whirlpool tub, cascading waterfall, loungers and breathtaking views of the surrounding Santa Rosa Mountains. This unique “spa within the spa”, designed for small parties of 8 or less, offers guests an intimate spa experience in ultimate luxury.
Spa Desert Springs was named one of Condé Nast Traveler magazine’s Top 100 spas. Selected alongside just 76 winners from around the world, the Spa won special acclaim for its Desert Journey body treatment, described as “more than an hour of being rubbed in citrus body butter, scrubbed in brown sugar and prodded with basalt river rocks (with a bit of foot paraffin masking and scalp rubbing thrown in).”
The spa is part of JW Marriott Desert Springs Resort & Spa, a sprawling oasis offering a stunning contrast to the stark beauty of the Coachella Valley. The four-diamond resort is one of the largest resort and convention complexes in the southwestern United States. Desert Springs’ 884 guest rooms and suites each include a private balcony and are located in wings surrounding swimming pools, lakes, verdant fairways, lush English gardens, and manicured lawns. Recreation facilities include two Ted Robinson championship golf courses, an 18-hole putting course, 20 tennis courts, basketball courts, lawn croquet and biking.
