‘The Water's Fine': One of America's Most Amazing Pools is Back

Multi-million-dollar renaissance upgrades this true desert oasis with poolside cafe, private cabanas and new spa

USA, Death Valley, California. March 08, 2018

The water's fine, so come on in. At a constant 85 degrees, the natural spring-fed pool at The Oasis at Death Valley may now be the coolest pool in the driest spot in North America. 
 
Drawn from a constantly flowing, ancient, underwater spring that bubbles up from subterranean aquifers to the surface, the resort's pool offers a chance to immerse in one of those rare spots in the desert where warm springs rise out of the rock. Now, thanks to a multi-million-dollar renovation, there's even more reason to experience this incredible oasis: poolside private cabanas, a pool cafe, and a new spa and fitness center - all with insane views of the desert landscape that is Death Valley. At the end of the day, wood-burning fireplaces make this a perfect spot to view the remarkably bright nighttime starry skies.
 
Since water is precious in the desert, the resort ensures that every drop of the pool water is purposefully used and carefully managed. The spring water is not chlorinated, eventually flowing through the pool to be used for a variety of other non-potable functions, including landscaping and irrigation of the golf course (which is also an Audubon bird sanctuary). Any extra is released so that it replenishes the aquifer beneath the valley floor.
 
Only a two-hour drive from Las Vegas, and four hours from Los Angeles, The Oasis at Death Valley (formerly known as Furnace Creek Resort) re-opened earlier this year after a massive renaissance. Nestled into the mountainside, the historic, four-diamond Inn at Death Valley features 66 elegantly updated rooms, renovated fine dining restaurant and cocktail lounge, verandas with sweeping views of Death Valley, and new opulent garden landscaping. Eleven two-bedroom private casitas have been added and will open in July, providing a new level of guest accommodations to the resort. In addition, the brand-new Mission Gardens offers a stunning space for quiet reflection or the perfect location for a wedding or other special event.

Hotel Spa: Oasis Unplugged

The driving force in current hotel spa trends is the effort to manage unprecedented levels of stress experienced by their clients. Feeling increasingly overwhelmed by demanding careers and technology overload, people are craving places where they can go to momentarily escape the rigors of their daily lives. As a result, spas are positioning themselves as oases of unplugged human connection, where mindfulness and contemplation activities are becoming increasingly important. One leading hotel spa offers their clients the option to experience their treatments in total silence - no music, no talking, and no advice from the therapist - just pure unadulterated silence. Another leading hotel spa is working with a reputable medical clinic to develop a “digital detox” initiative, in which clients will be encouraged to unplug from their devices and engage in mindfulness activities to alleviate the stresses of excessive technology use. Similarly, other spas are counseling clients to resist allowing technology to monopolize their lives, and to engage in meditation and gratitude exercises in its place. The goal is to provide clients with a warm, inviting and tranquil sanctuary from the outside world, in addition to also providing genuine solutions for better sleep, proper nutrition, stress management and natural self-care. To accomplish this, some spas are incorporating a variety of new approaches - cryotherapy, Himalayan salt therapy and ayurveda treatments are becoming increasingly popular. Other spas are growing their own herbs and performing their treatments in lush outdoor gardens. Some spa therapists are being trained to assess a client's individual movement patterns to determine the most beneficial treatment specifically for them. The July issue of the Hotel Business Review will report on these trends and developments and examine how some hotel spas are integrating them into their operations.
