Estrella ("star" in English) was the original name of the hotel which is now the Avalon Palm Springs. For the last decade however, it's what we've called our spa. We like to think of Estrella Spa as the star that lights up the Avalon from the inside out. It's the centerpiece of our Hotel's health and wellness experience and a refuge for your indulgence, play, learning, growth and comfort. Our menu contains a completely new offering of treatments and experiences that we have crafted exclusively for you.

In a resort area filled with destination resorts and spas, it takes a seriously new approach to yield fresh results. This cool hideaway spa is in the quiet back corner of the shabby-chic boutique hotel Avalon Palm Springs. It's a hipster hideaway for sure, especially since the spa has revamped it's facility and menu with holistic treatments focused on the... More

We did a couples package that included masssage, lunch, glass of champagne and use of beautiful facilities. It was a really good value. The massage was just Ok. The gal at the front desk was very helpful and pleasant.

We bought vouchers on Travel Zoo for massages and facials. We had to pay an extra $15 to use the workout facility and yoga class. We had a bad experience overall.... 1.

I received a massage and a facial. The ladies who gave the treatments were fantastic (Audrey and Rosie) great customer service and wonderful treatments. Front of desk service not so great....too business like, too automated. The conversation about the 20% gratuity at the end, with front of desk, was all very awkward.

I was killing time while my daughter was at an all day concert nearby, so what better way to feel like a good parent than get a massage. I booked one for 5:45, and arrived at the hotel by 2:30.

Chose this spa because it looked relaxing from pictures and they had a special on massages. The property is very beautiful and intimate. The therapists were very good and, for that reason, I would at least check it out. However, the spa didn't really give a "wow" feeling that I expected. Also, if you are not staying there, read the...
