Welcome to The O Spa + Resort.Thank you for considering The O Spa + Resort for your next getaway. We look forward to providing you with a truly memorable and relaxing experience.
The O is unique in the small hotel world as over 80% of our guests are repeat visitors. If you are new to our boutique hotel there are some things you should know.The O is a safe and welcoming adult destination and regardless of your gender, sexual orientation or political leanings, the O Welcomes everyone, both young and young at heart. The O is a tranquil and vibrant respite with natural mineral waters, that are both rejuvenating and healing, skilled and vetted massage therapists and healers, meandering gardens and beautiful vistas, and modest yet thought out and well-appointed accommodations.
We are also cannabis and pet friendly (however no smoking is allowed in any of the rooms).We also celebrate the best of life on a daily basis – conversation, art and music – which makes The O a dynamic and ever changing environment by design. We play music during the weekends and when the guest mix seems right so if you are looking for complete silence this is probably not your best choice. But if you are looking for a Zen, relaxing and stimulating change of pace, and a great massage, we just might be your new favorite escape.Most of our guests choose to stay at the spa for the duration of their visit – as we have a well-equipped lounge/kitchen area that all guests are free to use, but if you are ready to step out and explore the area, the Spa is conveniently located within 2 hours of all Southern California premier destinations – including Los Angeles and San Diego, and we are just 45 minutes from Joshua Tree State Park, and the Coachella Music Festival, 18 minutes from Downtown Palms Springs, and a wide variety of popular restaurants and local attractions, and the Palm Springs International Airport.
