Living Waters Spa is a small spa resort featuring an amazing free-flowing natural mineral water system without harsh chemicals, from their own well. This is an adult clothing optional spa with a large hot tub and a refreshing swimming pool. There are lots of loungers for those wishing to soak-up the sunshine and relax in the warmth of the desert....

We spent 5 days at Living Waters. The experience was AWESOME! We came to relax and enjoy my wife's birthday. To her, this was the best birthday present ever! Once we arrived, we had no desire to go out anywhere and having to put our clothes on when it came time to leave was the only negative of our visit....

We recently visited Living Waters on the weekend of Feb 10 - 12. The weather that weekend happened to be particularly windy, stormy, and cold, but our experience was beautiful. My wife and I have visited Living Waters several times over the years. Usually the weather is predictably sunny and beautiful, but California, fortunately, has recently been experiencing some real...

First time at a "clothing optional" and what a great choice! Everyone was so nice and sociable- from the owners to the staff and the other guests! We felt right at home after only a minute inside the gate. So free and natural with no judgement or embarrassment. There were all ages but primarily middle aged; all shapes and sizes....

We are so honored that you visited our spa and that we were the place for your "first time" clothing optional experience. We've created Living Waters Spa as a true oasis where you can enjoy our amazing mineral water sans bathing suit, just like spas in Europe. Yes, all sizes, shapes and ages come to the oasis. Regarding our breakfast...

The hosts are very sincere and truly cater to the guests needs. The rooms are fully supplied and the bed is heavenly. The massage is exceptional. This is the finest spa where you only need to take your toothbrush.

What we have here is a spa/hotel from what ... the '40s, '50s? that has been impeccably restored and turned into a private oasis that is restoring to the body and to the spirit. Our room, with kitchen, was wonderfully decorated, clean, well appointed, and located just a few steps from the hot tub and sauna. Our hosts were gracious,...

The visit starts with meeting the congenial staff at check in. Being a small facility there are no large crowds. The clientele are mainly couples looking to relax in the sauna and mineral water spa. the quiet serves relaxation very well. We are repeat visitors and will be on into the future.

Finally found the time to make a review. After the very pleasant experience at Living Waters, we plan to be back. This was our first time. Jeff the owner was very nice. He and Bianca checked us in and showed us around. We only briefly saw and spoke to Judy but she seems nice too. Atmosphere was serene and quiet....

Our stay at Living Waters was too short! The mineral pools are amazing and leave your skin baby soft. After a 4 day car trip, the massage was highly anticipated and exceeded my expectations, leaving me relaxed for days after. We can't wait to return and will definitely make sure we have time for a longer stay.
