The Destination
Just 109 miles from LA in the foothills of the San Bernardino Mountains, overlooking Palm Springs and the Coachella Valley, Desert Hot Springs is appealing to those seeking solitude and the healing powers of the area's natural hot mineral springs.

The Digs
With breathtaking views of the San Jacinto peaks and toned-down luxe décor, Miracle Manor Retreat, listed among National Geographic Traveler's 150 Hotels You'll Love in 2008, is the ideal Escape for those looking to ditch the bells and whistles in favor of natural opulence and elegant aesthetics.

This distinguished desert oasis, which dates back a half-century, has been meticulously restored to modern, eco-friendly standards, while upholding its classic 1950s style. Each room boasts minimalist furnishings—a nod to the retreat's owners, April Greiman and Michael Rotondi, a designer and architect, respectively—and features a queen-size bed designed by Greiman-Rotondi and topped with organic bedding, plus private bathrooms stocked with handmade, organic bath and body products.

While there is complimentary Wi-Fi available, the property keeps things simple with no TVs, kids, or pets allowed on the tranquil site. Start each day with a cool glass of cucumber or cinnamon natural spring water complemented by a healthy meal of fresh fruit, whole grain breads, organic nut butters and jams, and free-trade organic coffee and tea.

The Diversions
• Hike through Joshua Tree National Park, about 45 minutes from the hotel
• Take advantage of your $25 credit at the Miracle Manor spa
• Relax in the hotel's two mineral-rich therapeutic pools, open year-round

  • "The contrast of cool desert night air and water that's toasty but not painfully hot is surely one of life's great treats. Even better is looking up to a sky filled with crystalline constellations as you float lazily with steam rising all around."

    -- The New York Times
