Glen Ivy Hot Springs Honors Earth Day and a Fresh New Look With VIP Media Amid a Garden of Delights

Glen Ivy Hot Springs

Tucked away in Southern California’s Temecula Valley, which borders both San Diego and Riverside counties, lies what could legitimately be the state’s original day spa, Glen Ivy Hot Springs. Revered by local indigenous tribes for centuries, the mineral-rich red clay mud and therapeutic sulfur hot springs have been in commercial use since the 1860s. With its acres of towering palm trees, clean desert air, and therapy pool circuit, which includes their famous grotto cave and Club Mud.

Glen Ivy became a true spa destination in the ’80s when its full-service spa opened to the public when day spa treatments were considered a rare luxury for most Americans. Named by many publications as one of the country’s best luxury day spas, Glen Ivy has always been an inclusive environment where spa-goes of all ages and backgrounds can find respite from the hectic world outside. One can embrace and experience a day of luxury minus the sticker shock.

Fast-forward a couple of decades or two to 2022 and Glen Ivy hits a new milestone with a multi-million dollar renovation to usher in a new generation of spa-goes while giving loyal customers an enhanced experience. Executed by Bangkok-based GOCO Hospitality which owns and manages luxury spas around the globe, the new design features a cohesive California Mission aesthetic with low-rise adobe buildings housing its day spa, salon, changing, and locker rooms, Roman bath, gift shop, and dining options. The pool areas feature refreshed landscaping plus ample arrangements of shaded chaise lounges and tables with chairs to sip drinks or savor a light lunch or early dinner. There is also a bar and a calendar of daily entertainment and workshops.

Perhaps most exciting is Glen Ivy’s new partnership with (comfort zone) skincare for its spa service menu. Manufactured in Parma, Italy, (comfort zone) is the result of 20+ years of laboratory research and product development. A certified B Corporation, (comfort zone) delivers luxury, results-driven, and sustainably sourced and packaged skincare that combines the absolute best of science and nature into truly enriching premium products.
