The Glen Ivy Team

At the mouth of Cold Water Canyon, beneath the towering Santa Ana Range, Glen Ivy Hot Springs lies sheltered by the mountains and open to the sky. Water flows from deep in the earth into this natural sanctuary, as it has for countless generations. The first commercial use of the mineral springs can be traced back to 1860, and for more than 150 years Glen Ivy Hot Springs has attracted people who seek the benefits of nature, water and exercise, the pleasures of good food and camaraderie with others – the relaxation, renewal, and deep sense of well-being a day at the hot springs can bring.

Welcome to Glen Ivy

With spacious outdoor pools and a year-round temperate climate, every visit is an opportunity to rediscover a connection with oneself, with each other, and with the world around. Stretching across 12 acres of lush gardens, the Hot Springs also features California’s only therapeutic red clay mineral mud bath, aptly named Club Mud and The Grotto, a full body moisturizing treatment underground, an experience not to be missed. Café Solé serves a healthy selection of spa cuisine prepared under the artful direction of Glen Ivy’s own award-winning Executive Chef Bill Wavrin. Guests may also enjoy an extensive menu of treatments and therapies including a massage in our unique outdoor Under the Oaks area. Whether it’s a soothing soak in the mineral baths, or a special day to celebrate with friends and family in one of our four Cabañas, Glen Ivy Hot Springs is your place to do things that are both good and good for you, which is why we often hear guests say “I just love how I feel when I’m here.”

If you have spent time at Glen Ivy, you understand spa lifestyle is about renewal — the way we live our lives, what we do with our bodies, our relationships, the way we eat, and especially, how we see our own potential. This is the philosophy that inspires our growing program of fitness classes, workshops and learning opportunities.

We appreciate you taking the time to learn more about Glen Ivy. Glen Ivy Hot Springs, is proud to be a member of the International Spa Association (ISPA) and a Founding Seed Spa in the Green Spa Network.
