May specials are still calling at Palm Springs spas and around the Coachella Valley.
A stay-cation for you or a favored visitor comes courtesy JW Marriott Desert Springs Resort & Spa’s Midweek Mindfulness package. You get a month’s subscription to Calm’s mindful meditation app and day passes to the vast (38,000 square feet) spa.
So even if you don’t spend the night, spend time in the steam room, Jacuzzi, saltwater lap pool, and fitness facility. The adjacent Spa Bistro serves a super-healthful selection of fresh juices, local greens, and yummy wraps. Soak, steam, then salon, to coin a verb — get your hair and makeup done, indulge in a mani/pedi, and you’re ready for the night ahead.
Special packages are yours all summer, including the Couples Revive. Start with side-by-side massages chased with a bubble bath, gel masque, hydrating lavender body spray, and facial moisturizer. Then a toast to togetherness with Champagne and fresh fruit.

The Desert Springs package embraces you in a body scrub, massage, body wrap with aloe vera or aromatic oil, foot massage, and custom facial. The Ayurvedic Ritual package combines a polishing body scrub, the Abhyanga herbal oil massage to balance and stimulate energy and encourage deep relaxation, and a heated herbal wrap to ensure you’re well done. The Spa by Design is a custom package: Mix any two hour-long treatments, such as facials, massages, scrubs and wraps.
This month, Two Bunch Palms brings back its popular Twilight Thursday, from 3-9 p.m. throughout the summer. It’s an hour-long spa treatment and gratuity, unlimited soaking in the hot mineral springs Grotto, and admission to all movement and enrichment classes.
Well Spa at Miramonte Resort & Spa’s Escape is aimed at rebooting tired travelers and overheated locals. Get a 60-minute spa treatment, spend the night and avail yourself of the spa’s steam room, fitness room, and wellness classes. Also during May, take advantage of three special treatments: The Coconut Bliss massage’s coconut mint oil recharges weary limbs; a vitamin C-drenched facial brightens and firms; and the Mama Mia shea butter-salt-sugar scrub scrub adds Zents aromas for an olfactory boost.
What’s new at Well Spa is Hydration Therapy. The physician-supervised routine relies on IV fluids, chilled lavender-scented cloths, and the peaceful veranda to fight the effects of jet lag, too much sun, too much alcohol, or not enough sleep. It’s the ultimate back-on-your-feet recovery solution.
