My beau and I started the new year with a relaxing and rejuvenating stay at Sagewater Spa. The perfect blend of sophisticated and simple, Sagewater is away from the crowds of Palm Springs and in the heart of what is marvelous about the desert. Cristina and Rhoni are lovely hosts– friendly, helpful, interesting without being at all intrusive. They welcomed us with delicious a homemade coffeecake and we got along famously from there. The rooms are clean, modern chic and include a small kitchen stocked with coffee. From our window we enjoyed a beautiful view to the south, and spotted a roadrunner, humming birds, quail, rabbits and wind turbines.
The pool is to Sagewater as the fireplace is to a ski lodge — a magnet for guests to relax, enjoy the view, relax, talk, relax, soak up the sun or moon and wonderful energy of the desert. We left each day for great hikes in desert and came home to soak and… relax! Eager to schedule our return.
