Spa Profile: L'Horizon Resort and Spa
L’Horizon Resort and Spa, a member of Palm Springs Preferred Small Hotels, brings guests back to the glamour of Hollywood’s golden age through its unique esthetic. The resort features 25 custom-designed bungalows that are set against breathtaking mountain backdrops and imaginative desert landscapes. We spoke to Alyssa McDonald, Director of Spa Operations, to find out why a visit to L’Horizon is the perfect choice for a relaxing Palm Springs getaway:
Why You’ll Love It: L'Horizon Resort and Spa is a truly unique property. From its dramatic entryway to the intimate poolside cabanas, I often hear guests describing their experience as a much-needed respite from the fast pace of their daily lives. Le Spa is an open-air venue, set in an intimate nook with west-facing views of the gorgeous San Jacinto Mountains. Our cabanas are the perfect setting for the quintessential Palm Springs Spa experience. Guests enjoy massages, facials and body treatments while taking in the gentle open-air breezes throughout their cabana. We are an adult-only property and registered guest-only property, which sets the serene tone property wide.
Bonus: Guests are invited to enjoy a complimentary glass of sparkling wine upon their arrival at L'Horizon. While sipping their bubbly and enjoying their check in, we create a personalized engraved nameplate that is placed on their bungalow door for the duration of their stay. We also create personalized mini nameplates to affix to their pooch’s collar should they choose to travel with Fido. Guests love to take these home as special keepsakes. We offer a complimentary Le Spa Elixir (handcrafted cocktail) to each guest that receives a spa treatment. This refreshing concoction is handcrafted using an uplifting basil tincture prepared daily by our skilled barkeeps. Spend the afternoon by the pool and enjoy our complimentary poolside hand and foot massages, offered by one of our talented therapists.
Key Features: After spa treatments, guests can make their way over to our heated pool or jacuzzi, and soak up the warmth while sipping on their complimentary Le Spa Elixir. They can also head to their bungalow and enjoy an after-treatment rinse under the sun (or moon) in their private outdoor shower.
Spa Snacks: Guests can enjoy fresh fruit-infused water, tea and seasonal fruit while taking in the mountain views in our relaxation area. It’s the perfect introduction to their spa treatment.
Splurge Treatment: While we create new and unique seasonal splurges, our Evening Aloe and Ice remains truly an indulgent experience. Enjoy a custom 90-minute massage followed by a cooling and hydrating facial using our result- driven and luxurious facial and body care lines. This treatment is a sensory experience focusing on complete pampering from head-to-toe. Typically done at dusk, the entire treatment sets a tone of relaxation, renewal and healing.
Insider Favorite: Our Therapeutic Nirvana Stress Relief Massage is, as its title suggests, ultimate relaxation. We encompass an opening and closing aromatherapy ritual, giving the massage complete balance. We invite the guest to choose one of four highly therapeutic scents to be integrated into their treatment. This massage is tailored to the specific needs of each guest. Many modalities are used, leaving the guest feeling complete "nirvana" for the remainder of their stay. It's a great way to begin their L'Horizon experience or complete their stay in mellow bliss. We recommend the 90-minute option for this particular treatment.
Featured Products: We are proud to offer both Naturopathica and Hydropeptide for all of our treatments. These products are also available in Le.Shop for the guests to take their spa experience home.
