"The Well" Luxary Spa at Miramonte Resort - Indian Wells, CA (Palm Springs)

I have found myself day dreaming of my time at "The Well" spa and dazing off into complete bliss!  My husband and I took a trip to Indian Wells, California for our last vacation as parents of one child and our last vacation alone for awhile.  Our son was due to arrive soon and we needed to relax.  We stayed at the Indian Wells Resort Hotel across the street and took a walk over to the Miramonte Resort to see what they had to offer.  I was 7 months pregnant and very excited to see they could give me a prenatal massage during a couples massage with my husband. 

The next morning we kept busy until the afternoon and then made our way over to the spa. You'll receive full access for the day to the spa when you book a service.  Once you check-in they provide you with a plush robe, slippers and give you a quick tour of the spa.  If you arrive early enough you'll have time to lounge in the most comfortable lounge chairs, use the Men's & Ladies Steam rooms, lockers and beverage bar and full use of the warm mineral pool.  Of course, being 7 months pregnant I was advised not to use the steam room, but it looked very tempting and my husband was able to enjoy it.  Nevertheless, I was in complete relaxation in the mineral water pool and lying out in the Desert sun with my big belly in tote.

It was time for our couples massage and we were greeted by two very nice ladies that took us back to our room.  They spoke to us individually to find out our specific needs, and then together asked what kind of music we preferred during the massage.  I left that one up to my husband and just enjoyed what I knew would be the last relaxing moments I would have in a long time to come!

Our day at "The Well" spa was a memorable one and I have yet to come across another that is just as amazing.  Not that I frequent spas often, but I've gone to several in the past and none have come close.  I also saw that Miramonte's spa was voted the #1 Spa in the Country on Conde Nast Travel magazines top 100 list and I couldn't agree more! 

NOTE:  If you plan to get a massage while pregnant at Miramonte, or any other spa for that matter. Be sure to drink EXTRA water before and after your massage.  This is very important for the health of you and baby. ShareThis

I live like 10 minutes from the IW Resort Hotel...I have anyone who's on a budget stay there when they come to visit...they're the most reasonably priced mid-range hotel in the Valley!
