A Day at Glen Ivy Hot Springs and Spa

Our cousins spa day happened yesterday here.










It was a perfect, hot summer morning when I arrived. Parking was a breeze at the opening hour 8:30 a.m. I walked the grounds and found a perfectly located lounge chair by the lap pool.








While I waited for my cousins to arrive I swam. My advice get there early.



I had the pool all to myself! hee hee








I'm not sure what they call this shallow pool area but it was full of people on floating devices. They looked very relaxed.






Many lounging spots throughout the grounds







Lots of daily activities, tours of the botanical gardens, water aerobics classes etc. are posted in the schedules. Make sure you get a map of the area too.







Plenty of private lockers, towels, spinners to wring out wet bathing suits in the dressing areas.







Indoor and outdoor Roman baths








Fun area to coat yourself in red clay.





Great salads are just a few of the many choices at Cafe Sole. Wine as well as cocktails can be ordered and delivered pool side if you desire.





Private cabana areas can be reserved.






There are about 17 pools to choose from. Plenty of nice lounge chairs and tables with umbrellas.














Glen Ivy Hot Springs Spa is an 11-acre oasis in the desert outskirts of Corona, California about an hour drive (57 miles) south-east of Los Angeles. The luxurious grounds have grown up around a natural mineral hot spring that gives the resort its name. You can fill a whole day at Glen Ivy Spa without ever booking a treatment. There are plenty of ways to pass the time between the many pools, Roman baths, the red clay mud bath aka "Club Mud", mineral baths, sauna, steam room and relaxing in the tropically landscaped gardens or taking a fitness class - all included for the price of admission, which ranges between $40-50.00* (includes parking, lockers and use of most of the above named facilities.) Unique spa treatments are available as a-la-carte add-ons. (Make appts. in advance). * In 2011 they are celebrating their 150th anniversary with the gift of a free admission on your birthday.


Hours: Warm Season (May 1-Oct. 8:30 am - 6 pm, Cool Season 9:30 am - 5 pm

Note: Reservations are not required for admission, just for individual treatments.
