The defintion of linger is: "to be slow in parting or in quitting something." When we were there recently, we had no urgency to do anything other than experience the sense of calm we felt within and with each other. The beauty of Sagewater Spa is that the experience truly lingers with you after you leave. I keep thinking back...

Sagewater Spa was a delist full experience. The room was simple but utterly comfortable--the bedding divine, the kitchen immaculate and fully functional, the ambiance casual and peaceful,the staff friendly and most helpful. We would go there again without a doubt. The swimming pol and hot tub, fed by their own mineral waters, we're heaven. Go for the water--both the drinking...

My husband and I spent three days at the Sagewater Spa and were incredibly relaxed by the end of our trip. the water was delicious, the grounds were immaculate and the landscape incredibly beautiful. With only 7 rooms, we felt as if we were in our own private spa. It is a true oasis in the desert.

My husband and I decided to take a last minute trip to the desert. After several "we're all booked" phone calls, I came across Sagewater Spa. Rhonie and Cristina were delightful on the phone and even more welcoming once we arrived. It's a seven room motel. It was quiet. Everything is very clean, rooms have a kitchen. You're welcomed with...

Of all the little hot springs getaways, this is my favorite! It's simple, clean, organic to the setting, private, secluded, small and provides everything you need for a desert hot spring getaway.
