Sacred Agua Caliente Hot Mineral Spring Day Spa is a new world-class luxury spa destination in Palm Springs

Palm Springs is a beautiful destination with so much to offer from hiking, to winery tours, to luxury spas. And it just got another luxury spa. You can’t have too many, amiright?! Wellness travel is booming right now and wellness resorts and spas are popping up everywhere.

The Agua Caliente Band of Cahuilla Indians is pleased to announce the opening of The Spa at Séc-he at the Agua Caliente Cultural Plaza. The much-anticipated world-class spa is located atop the Tribe’s sacred hot mineral spring, adjacent to Agua Caliente Casino Palm Springs in downtown Palm Springs, Calif.

As their name suggests, they have a hot mineral spring water pool and guests report diminished muscle aches and a reduction in joint inflammation. I love natural hot spring water and have experienced its healing effects first-hand. What I love the most is the lack of chlorine and other smelly chemicals.

The Spa at Séc-he heals your body, mind and spirit

“The opening of The Spa at Séc-he is a milestone our Tribe will not soon forget, and will pass down through the generations. We are honoured to share some of our most precious rituals with the world. While an emphasis on healing helped our Tribe thrive throughout the years, so has the connection to the body, mind and spirit – all things you will be enveloped in at The Spa at Séc-he.”

Chairman Reid D. Milanovich of the Agua Caliente Band of Cahuilla Indians.

Owned by the Agua Caliente Band of Cahuilla Indians and operated by Agua Caliente Casinos, the new global spa destination offers a luxurious and robust selection of treatments. Everything from the use of local botanicals and high-tech equipment, to deluxe add-ons and unique services such as flotation and cryotherapy, is available.

Signature offerings include Water Cupping Massages, wellness packages and its special clinical skin support line. They have 15 treatment rooms and services that cater to all.

“We have carefully and strategically crafted our spa menu to offer something for everyone, using only the highest quality products and technologies expected of a world-class spa destination.”

Daniel Spencer, Spa Director at Agua Caliente Casinos/The Spa at Séc-he

“Introducing Cahuilla cultural impressions into the treatments, offerings and throughout the architecture of the spa was integral to the concept of The Spa at Séc-he. It is truly the only wellness destination of its kind.” The Spa at Séc-he promises to be a top luxury spa in Palm Springs.

Exclusive to The Spa at Séc-he is Taking of the Waters, an ancient tradition. Twenty-two private mineral baths are available for guests to experience the power of Taking of the Waters, where the combination of hot water and the mineral composition creates a natural environment for full body rejuvenation.

Taking of the Waters helps to ease muscle and joint pain and encourages deep relaxation. It can also help improve skin conditions and renew one’s spirit. Sounds lovely to me!
