About. Just 18 minutes from Downtown Palm Springs, The O Spa is located in the heart of Desert Hot Springs “Spa City”. The thermal mineral waters at the O Spa were used by the Cahuilla Indians for over one thousand years and are unique as they are one of the few odorless thermal mineral springs in North America. The Spa was originally constructed in 1952 but has been thoughtfully updated with modern amenities while retaining its original 1950’s character. The majestic San Bernardino and San Jacinto Mountains surround the resort and provide dramatic 270-degree mountain vistas.
Bicycles. We provide two complimentary mountain bike type bicycles on a first-come-first-served basis. All bikes include a lock (the passcode is WINE). Please note, guests are responsible for theft or lost bicycles when off-site.
Bocce Ball/Pentinique. Our Bocce ball court is open 24 hours a day and is our favorite sport as it’s one of the few games that can be played with a cocktail in one hand.
Check in. During business hours (3:00pm to 10:00pm) someone will be on-site to greet you. For after-hours check-in we offer self-check-in with a digital keypad and key depository. We require I/D and a credit card upon check-in.
Check Out. We do ask that when leaving you lock the front door for the safety of our four-legged guests. There’s also a digital keypad in the event that you forget your keys.
Chefs/Catering. We offer both Private Chefs for small parties and Catering for large groups, weddings, and events and all of our menus and deserts can include selected Cannabis-infused specialties should you so desire. For more information and to custom tailor your menu please call or text Rick at +1 213.361.8496.
Community Room/Kitchen. The community Lounge/Kitchen is free for all guests to use (and mingle) and is well stocked with cookware and utensils – many of our guests choose to bring groceries and once settled never leave the compound during their entire stay. There’s also complimentary coffee and tea in the kitchen.
Pets. Well behaved, socialized pets are always welcome but we do ask that you immediately clean up after them and make sure they don’t damage any furniture, etc. Pets are not allowed in the pool or spa or on the synthetic turf and must remain on leashes and be supervised at all times while on the grounds except when using the dog run which is a “leash free” area. Please be considerate of our other guests and do not leave any pets that may suffer from “separation anxiety” unattended. The limit is two pets per room unless prior arrangements have been made.
Getting Around. Taxis, Uber, Lyft, and car services are readily available. Shopping for essentials is nearby but may be beyond walking distance for most. Overall, a car would be best and free parking is available for all guests.
Groups and Events. The entire O Spa (all 13 Rooms and the 2-two bedroom Casitas) are available at a group/event rate and can accommodate up to 44 overnight guests (two guests per room) and up to 200 people total depending on the event and set up. Group bookings will have exclusive access to all spa amenities and we can help arrange for catering, beverage service, DJ’s, PA systems, seating, outdoor tents, etc. Just let us know what your needs are and we will try to accommodate.
Hours. All spa pools and amenities are our 24/7 but we do ask that you be considerate of our other guests and keep noise to a minimum after 10.
Mineral waters. All of our pools are filled with natural mineral spring water that originates 1000’s of feet underground and comes to the surface at a temperature of over 112 f/44 c. We maintain the temperature of the main pool between 87f/30c and 90f/32c in the winter and 85f/29c-87f/30c in the Summer. The large spa/Jacuzzi at 104F/40c, while the smaller cowboy hot in the back garden can be used as a cold plunge or can be heated upon request. Temperatures for the Turkish shower which is also located in the back-garden averages 112f/44c but may vary slightly as the water comes directly from the deep aquifer.
Parking. There’s plenty of free parking in front of the Spa and in the large lot to the left of the property. We can also accommodate limited caravans and motor coaches at no additional cost with advance notice.
