A private paradise in Greater Palm Springs
11 Treatment Rooms
Sunstone Spa is a relaxing oasis in the Southern California desert. Sandstone walls accented with palm trees and succulents welcome you to this tranquil Greater Palm Springs retreat, a 10,500-square-foot facility where it’s all too easy to find your private paradise.
There’s little need to pack a toiletry bag for your spa day, thanks to Sunstone’s fully stocked vanity area and locker room. Brushes, blow dryers, lotion and deodorant are on hand, and there are even disposable swimsuits available if you left yours behind.
Arriving early is worth it just to soak in the indoor whirlpool, sweat it out in the sauna or sit the eucalyptus steam room (offered in both the men’s and women’s lounge areas) before your treatment. The waiting areas set the stage for relaxation with plush lounge chairs, dim lighting and refreshments, including water and fresh fruit that can be cut to order.
After your treatment, it’s hard to resist the allure of the private outdoor pool, the perfect spot for soaking up the California sun and tranquil desert skies. Couples often opt for one of the private cabanas, which feature a private whirlpool and food and cocktail service.
If your treatment leaves you energized, you can always get a workout in at the spa’s fitness center.
Both body and spirit are the focus of Sunstone Spa’s revamped treatment menu. The Journey of Discovery, for example, uses massage to stimulate and energize the chakras, while add-ons like aromatherapy (with options including “Relax” and “Energize”) elevate your luxury spa experience. Every massage oil is infused with crystals like rose quartz to balance the body’s energy and promote a sense of well-being.
Discover the healing properties of the crystal-infused oils with the Sunstone Signature Stone Massage, which uses heated lava stones to melt away muscle stiffness. Or for a desert-themed treatment, try the Desert Rain Soak and Body Experience. After an exfoliation with essential-oil-infused salts, soak up more than 80 minerals and elements in a bath before the aromas of desert rain are massaged into your skin.
The impressive menu also includes body scrubs, wraps and a dozen facials, including a Thermo Cooling Hydration Facial perfect for soothing and moisturizing the skin during your desert stay. Couples visiting this adults-only Rancho Mirage spa can also enjoy one of the retreats designed for two.
A day at the spa leaves you well rested for a night out on the town, especially when you let the full-service salon take care of the primping. Services include waxing, manicures, pedicures, beard trims and a full range of hair services from blowouts and updos to cuts and color.
Custom packages for groups are also available for those looking to celebrate special occasions like a bridal shower or birthday.
If your idea of relaxation is a trip to the steam room and some quality time poolside, consider the day pass, which allows you access to the spa’s private pool, sauna, steam room, whirlpool and fitness center.
