    Al Capone's Hideaway?

    by

    Two Bunch Palms is an oasis in the desert. Literally. A natural hot springs feeds this area creating abundant verdant beauty.

    Rumor has it that this was an outpost for Al Capone and his men. Today you can not recognize what this place is from the street because it has a guard gate and a thick wall around it!

    Leave the cell phone at home because this exclusive resort frowns on it. Rest, relaxation, meditation and quiet is the theme of this hotel.

    Accomodations vary from a hotel room to a villa to a house all contained on the property. Breakfast is included in the price but the spa treatments are not, although there are some lovely package deals to be had.

    Summer rates are far more reasonable than winter rates.

    On one occasion we were upgraded to a villa after a miserable night without A/C in our hotel room, the front desk was not staffed at night and we did not know to call the gate. In the AM the staff was horrified to learn our A/C had failed and whisked us off to a gorgeous 2 bed 2 bath villa replete with kitchen, living room, dining room and a jacuzzi in the back yard (when do I move in?)

    The spa has a wide menu of spa treatments including hot mud baths (my girlfriend hated it, I loved it) Just bring an old bathing suit or go in sans the suit.

    Massages are done in huts, with the hot desert air wafting through it was a wonderful experience.

    The grounds are a wonder to behold as pathways meander throughout the resort down to a lake/pond with a creek running through the property. There are benches and chaise lounges discreetly placed for meditation or reading.

    Unique Quality: There are 2 main characteristics of this hotel.

    One, you MUST converse in whisper tones in the common areas. Hence the rule of NO cell phones. I have actually seen the staff firmly but politely insist that this type A executive turn off his phone and respect the peace and quiet. I silently applauded and cheered.

    Two, is "The Grotto". the Grotto is the natural spring that comes up out of the ground and is captured in one of the most beautiful hot tubs I have ever been in. On another visit I brought my husband and I floated him up ontop of some floats and did a "Watsu" type treatment for him, he said after that it was the most relaxing experience he had ever had while in the water.

Energy Vortex?

by keida84

I truly enjoy going to Desert Hot Springs in the middle of summer. The heat does not bother me and I actually find it therapeutic.

Now a writer by the name of Roger Sunpath raises a question...Is the region of Desert Hot Springs an energy vortex?

A vortex is a depression at the center of a whirling mass of air or water which draws things down and in.

Earth energy vortexes are either "positive" or "negative". Evidently, these are spots where the Earth's energies "sun, wind, geological fault lines, geothermal, and alignment of mountain tops" all unite. thus creating "power points".

Read further at: http://www.deserthotsprings.com/vortex1.htm Whether or not Desert Hot Springs is an energy vortex is anyone's guess. Roger Sunpath seems to think so.

All I know is that when I come back from Two Bunch Palms, I have not an ounce of tension in my body.

Palm Springs best panoramic view

by icunme

Most scenic panoramic view of entire Palm Springs Valley from northern-most Desert Hot Springs - great natural hot springs which give the city its name - best budget value for golf at Mission Lakes - Al Capone's hidaway is there at the unmarked Two Bunch Palms - Cabot's Indian Pueblo and charming story of the desert pioneer. New huge Indian Casinos nearby with slots, shows, all casino gambling. Annual Festivals includ Indian - Film - Date Farm - Art festivals regularly. Best value can be found in a rented condo at Mission Lakes as alternative to expensive Palm Springs hotels. Located just 15 min from Palm Springs airport and central Palm Drive.

Mud Baths and Massage at Two Bunch Palms

by keida84

At Two Bunch Palms in Desert Hot Springs, California there is a legend. The legend has it that this was Al Capone's desert hide-away.

Now it is a 5 star Spa and resort replete with natural hot springs and thermal mud baths.

Now who would have thought that sitting in hot mud in the middle of the summer months would feel good? Make sure you wear an OLD bathing suit or better yet, wear nothing but a smile. When you first dip you r foot into that nasty looking pile of sludge you might think to yourself, "I'm paying for this?!?!?!" But then you settle in and feel the heat penetrate down to every cell in your body. The tension melts away. Aaaaaaah.

They ply you with lots water while immersed in the mud and keep cool cloths on your forehead so you don't overheat, then you get out and shower (make sure you wash behind your ears because there will be mud in every nook and cranny). The attendant will then take you to a patio room (it's private) and she will wrap you in a cool, wet sheet and you lie on a massage table warmed by the sun, when you have sun-dried it is off to the massage hut for a body and mind bending massage.

I am telling you after that treatment there is NO tension left in your body. There is no tension left to keep you upright, I went back to the villa (The Villa!!!) and slept. ZZZZZZZZzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz

"Around The Oasis"

This is the spa building where facials are done. Can you believe that all this foliage is in the desert?

"Where the Turtles Live"

On the property is a large lake where the 2 Bunch Turtles live. Such an idyllic existence.

Part of the Two Bunch Palm experience is to walk about the property. Remember, hushed tones only.

There are chaise lounges and meditation benches placed for contemplative reflection or to simply read a good book.

"Right This Way"

Through this archway is a path that takes you to the another part of the spa and swimming pool.

There are massage huts ( I forgot to get pictures of them, oops guess I'll just have to GO BACK!!) and outdoor mud baths. Now who would have thought that sitting in hot mud in the middle of the summer months would feel good? They ply you with water while in the mud and keep cool cloths on your forehead, then you get out and shower and they wrap you in a cool, wet sheet and you lie on a massage table warmed by the sun, when you have sun-dried it is off to the massage hut for a body and mind bending massage.
