The land is sacred, the area is vast, the sky is open and if you listen, the desert has many listens to give. Coming to the desert provides a prolific healing energy that leaves you feeling rejuvenated when you go home. It is a special place that dries out all that no longer serves you, lets the wind blow away your worries and ignite the sunshine within. The sky is brighter in the desert. It feels different here. It is quieter here. It is a place that teaches abundance + gratitude. Every time you leave the desert, you are different. You are better. 


Being in this special place with someone special is extra special! Together as a couple you can enjoy the land together, hot tub soaks, and all the other amenities the property has (play some shuffleboard or volleyball for some friendly competition, read a book together from our library, or serenade each other in karaoke, and also engage in  fun, romantic experiences holistic health experiences like:

  • self love exercises like yoga + meditation

  • couples journaling exercises 

  • couples breathwork 

  • partner yoga 



We will pack you a small, romantic picnic+ hike out together to Heart Rock. Then we will give you alone time to enjoy your picinic, each other, and explore other areas of the park. 


 Joshua Tree National Park is distinctly named after the trees that inhabit the park, the Joshua Tree. This National Park is the place where two deserts meet: the Mojave and Colorado. The park itself is like its own world protected from the rest of the world. I have literally been in the park and it was having a snowstorm: I drove 5 minutes out of the park and was back in 60 degree and sunny weather. Something magical happens on these close to 800,000acres of land.


I call this park an adult’s playground! With rocks to climb and hide in, trees that look like cheerleaders cheering you, and the vastness and diversity, there is so much to do here. It is the perfect place to hike, climb and meditate. It is the perfect place to get away from it all and be immersed in nature. 





What is more romantic than watching the sunrise with your love? Doing it in a private, granite tub filled with healing geothermal mineral water.


This is a unique, relaxing and rejuvenating, romatnic rustic experience in nature. Wonder Valley has an underground hot springs river heated naturally through a thermal fault line. A private property has three wells from 125-135 degrees tapping into this line filled with 10 private monolithic granite tubs for soaking, stargazing or sunrise watching, healing and contemplating. 


This raw, open desert experience is more like finding a soaking hole in the middle of nature than a resort or spa. Each granite tub is filled on demand to any temperature you desire between 90-105 degrees Fahrenheit with the springs thermal mineral water. From each tub you have views of the wide open desert and the mountains surrounding our valley. 


Soaking in this large solid rock provides many healing benefits. It has been proven to relax and calm your mind, heal + nurture your skin, improve  circulation, reduce pain, and lower stress levels among many other things. Doing it together makes the experience even more special. Clothing optional.  



 Hold hands, snuggle under a blanket together in  hammock and look a the stars, watch from inside your dome or watch from the hot tub. Make wishes together or have deep conversation about the unknown. Bask in the energy of the universe with one another under the open sky!

The retreat property has been rated “A+” for star gazing as one of the best star viewing spots in the country. With minimum light pollution, the night sky will inspire you to think bigger than you ever could. We often spot shooting stars, planets and other “space stuff” that gets you thinking. It is inspiring. Lay on a hammock and look up or if the  weather and night sky permits, look through our 12.5 Dobsonian Telescope and see the brilliance of the moon + its crater up close and personal. 



 The retreat property is 15 minutes from downtown Twentynine Palms + 15 minutes from downtown Joshua Tree with about a 20-30 minute car ride to iconic desert towns like Yucca Valley + Pioneertown. With tons of great shopping, thrift shops, record stores and restaurants, it is a perfect place to go on date together! Although this part of the retreat is not covered with the retreat fee, we will schedule free time for you and your love to have a date and give you a list of our favorite places to get close! From a drive in movie therater theater to a unique saloon to a hipster resturant with firepits to a 1950's airport theme resturant + cocktail lounge you will surely have a date to remember.
