Glen Ivy Hot Springs
Glen Ivy Hot Springs, located in Corona, is a calming wellness getaway that has been around since 1860. This relaxing retreat has a hidden mud bath on the property that you must experience to believe.
Before we take a peek at the mud bath, just take a look at the grounds at Glen Ivy Hot Springs. The entire property is a sanctuary of beauty where you can't help but unwind and relax the moment you enter this peaceful setting filled with 17-acres of serene garden paths. Although the setting is enough to calm your spirit, it's the mud bath that has me captivated.
Welcome to Club Mud!
The magic happens right through this entrance. I'll give you a look inside so you can see what to expect. Don't you just love the name of this space? "Club Mud" pretty much sums it up.
Once you step inside Club Mud you'll find a pool of red clay to smooth all over your skin.
The mud treatment is created with a mixture of dry clay from the local Temescal Valley and Glen Ivy's very own naturally occurring mineral water. The result is a healing concoction that draws out impurities from your skin and leaves it feeling firm and exfoliated.
Who says grown ups can't play in the mud? Not only is this treatment good for your skin, it's also good for your spirit. I think it looks like the perfect activity for a girlfriend getaway.
This mud is highly pigmented, so you should try to wear an old bathing suit that you don't mind getting dirty. And you might want to think about taking off your ring and any other jewelry, as that could be one big mess to try and clean up.
No, it's not snowing. Those are suds. After the mud dries on your skin, you'll be hosed down (literally) with a soapy spray that will remove the dry clay.
And then step inside the Club Mud showers to rinse off. You should be completely rejuvenated by now.
Before or after your mud bath you can stroll around the property and relax at one of many hidden nooks that are designed for seclusion and reflection.
There's also a pool where you can float the day away while you sip on a refreshing beverage. Just make sure to slather on that sunscreen on your newly rejuvenated skin.
What a relaxing oasis abundant with nature! If you think you could use a little "me" time, then I think you may have just discovered your perfect escape at Glen Ivy Hot Springs.
So how much does this experience cost? You’d be surprised how reasonable it is for an entire day of wellness treatments at this healing retreat. For more details and information on pricing, head to the
