The Grotto

Throughout history, cultures have been drawn to water. The practice commonly known as ‘taking of the waters’ refers to thousands of years of social, medicinal & spiritual rituals created to experience the preventative, therapeutic, and restorative benefits of water.

The mineral waters found in The Grotto are first cooled and then they cascade into the two carved pool areas – one at 104 degrees and the larger at 99 degrees. It is one of the few mineral springs with no sulfurous odor, simply a woodsy scent. A canopy of trees filters the desert sun, but opens to the shimmer of moonlight, the sparkle of stars and the occasional nighttime flyover by our resident guardian white owls. The Grotto experienced at midnight is a heavenly delight, a thoroughly romantic indulgence.

Soak quietly in our grotto and discover the transformative effect of our healing waters, while reflecting on the secret at the heart of Two Bunch Palms: you are ruled by everything until you understand the power in doing nothing


Two Bunch Palms Resort & Spa was named Best Hot Springs in America by the 2015 Wellness Travel Awards and the “Best for Mineral Springs” each year 2004 through 2010 by the readers of Spa Finder Magazine.


Please note:  Our stone Grotto is a natural aquifer that has been around for more than 600 years. This lush vegetation and natural hot springs area is home to birds (including hawks and owls), lizards, certain rodents and water associated bugs. So, if you see any of these desert creatures, please know they are part of the eco-system and let us know so we can attend to your comfort in the waters.
