Known for its Mineral Spas, Desert Hot Springs (DHS) is one of the fastest growing communities in Southern California.  This city of over 26,000 permanent residents is a 640 square mile vacation paradise located in the western end of the Coachella Valley in close proximity to Palm Springs and Joshua Tree National Park. It sits off I-10 and is served by major airlines via Palm Springs International Airport.

Back in 1913, Cabot Yerxa arrived under the Desert Lands Act, which allowed homesteading. He dug a large hole and constructed the area’s first permanent building – Eagle’s Nest Cabin. In 1941, Yerxa began the building of Old Indian Pueblo, a Hopi Indian inspired 35-room pueblo, today an architectural landmark viewed by people visiting the “Cabot Pueblo Museum.” The museum also houses an amazing collection of Native Indian pottery, arrowheads, turn of the 20th century photographs, Buffalo Bill Cody’s chair, Alaskan artifacts he gathered while living with the Alaskan Inuit and more.

To beat the stress of every day life, nothing beats the healing affects of one of the world’s finest underground aquifers of soothing odor free mineral waters. Celebrities and sun seekers from all walks of life come to Desert Hot Springs to recharge and rejuvenate at “Two Bunch Palms” or one of the city’s other boutique resorts. From salt scrubs to spice massages, saunas to facials, waxing to wraps, poolside pedicures and so much more, our world-known resorts draw visitors from around the U.S. and the world.

“The City of Desert Hot Springs is committed to becoming a world class health and wellness destination based upon its famous miracle waters, unique desert ecosystem, spectacular mountain views, and natural environment.”
