Waters & Sustainability

At Two Bunch Palms we take great pride in operating in harmony with our environment. Whether it’s the use of naturally warmed waters from the springs at Miracle Hill, or the installation of a solar field that has allowed us to be the first carbon-neutral resort in America, we continually strive to protect and benefit from this special ecosystem.

H2O Analysis

Two Bunch Palms Spa is home to the famed mineral springs that descend from Miracle Hill. These waters have been flowing for 600 years under the surface, and see their first light of day as they flow into our pool at The Springs.

Our legendary Springs feature a large mineral water pool that is carefully kept at an ideal temperature.

The unique composition of this mineral water is world famous for its therapeutic and mood-enhancing properties, low in sulfur, and rich in lithium. Once immersed in our waters, you’ll experience a level of nourishment and rejuvenation never felt before. Guests will also find three large teak tubs where you can adjust the natural mineral water temperature, as well as three additional pools on property that will accommodate up to 12 people.

History

The Coachella Valley, a vast lake as recently as 350 years ago, began to dry up in the early 1700s when the Colorado River changed course, leaving the barren Salton Sea and a patchwork of underground hot springs. The waters at Desert Hot Springs flowed from the hills to the north and pooled in the low lying areas. This oasis became a welcome respite for weary travelers. As early as 1857, a settler recorded the discovery of our site at Two Bunch Palms as a place to rest and find water, marked by two palm groves. In 1909, the US Army Camel Corps of Engineers surveyed the area and identified the location as “two bunches of palms.”
