April in the desert is a transition time, when the snowbirds start packing up and those lucky enough to stay start working on pool-worthy bodies.
Check out new fitness options at two of the Coachella Valley’s best spas:
Spa La Quinta has just revamped its fitness center and has as many as 50 classes each week, from yoga to Pilates to spin. Get a heart-pumping workout, then wind down with the sports massage, and gain a new outlook on life with the spring Citrus Infusion facial packed full of Naturopathica's pure botanical extracts and Vitamins C, A and E.
Agua Serena at the Hyatt Regency Indian Wells Resort is debuting a new Wellness membership that lets you tailor your perfect combination of fitness and spa treatments each month. In addition to daily access to the fitness facility, the membership includes a 50-minute treatment, four pool passes, four fitness class passes and half-off additional classes, plus excellent discounts on spa and salon services, purchases in the spa boutique and food and beverage. Complimentary consultations with a fitness instructor and a preventive care specialist are included to make sure you get off to a fine start.
If you just want the luxury of a spa day that delivers the look and feel of a glowing, renewed appearance, the Spring Awakening specials at Omni’s Spa Las Palmas promise fresh, luminous skin all over. Indulge your diva side with the Melon Mojito Body Renewal treatment, including a scrub containing sea salt, rosemary and organic mint, an exfoliating treatment with vodka and raspberry and a final hydrating lotion utilizing cucumber and melon.
Follow that blissful smooth down with the Cabana Boy mani/pedi to take your digits from tired and dry to dance-floor and queen-wave worthy. The dual treat exfoliates with a vodka-infused watermelon and basil potion and moisturizes with a whipped citrus-vanilla-sea butter, all while you sip an island-themed cocktail.
Over at the Hard Rock Hotel Palm Springs, Rock Spa is offering two specials through April. The Berries & Bliss body scrub utilizes agave nectar oil to soften, a raspberry-vodka scrub to exfoliate and a final application of the famous Farmhouse Fresh Sweet Cream Body Milk. Farmhouse Fresh products are with Agave Nectar Oil to soften the skin, then a full body exfoliation with Raspberry Vodka Infused Body Scrub, finished with a light application massage of Sweet Cream Body Milk by Farmhouse Fresh.
For those who can’t get enough of that body milk, there’s a special full-body massage starring this product. Farmhouse Fresh products are not only natural and vegan/gluten-free, they smell divine.
