The RV Lifestyle is Something Many People Only Dream About

At the Catalina Spa RV Resort we have taken RV Resort living to the next level by offering extensive creature comforts to our residents and guests. The moment you drive through our spacious property, you sense the peace and tranquility of our quiet Desert Hot Springs community which sleeps so well under the comfort of dark skies at night. Our property is dotted with palm trees and graced with succulent gardens throughout. Migrating birds regularly visit and drink from our ponds.

Time is Your Own!

In the heart of the desert in the Greater Palm Springs Area, it is apparent why generations of people have flocked here for the benefits of the hot mineral springs. When someone makes the desert their home, it is a choice connected to cultivating personal wellness and inner tranquility. The legends of the Agua Caliente tribe and the wisdom of these ancient desert dwellers abound. With the choice of an RV lifestyle, time is truly ones own.

Close-Knit Family

Seasoned RVers are the first to know how special time is with family when it is in an RV setting. The smaller the house, the closer the family! It is comforting to share a cozy home with others nearby, instead of wondering where everyone has gone or listening to echoes in empty hallways. At Catalina Spa RV Resort, we offer a variety of activities that the whole family can partake in. Mini golf is a favorite, not to mention billiards and pickle ball. We have many healthy choices for happy families!

Fitness, Health and Wellness

Keeping health, wellness, and fitness front and center, the Catalina Spa RV Resort offers an array of ways to stay fit. Our state of the art new fitness center has a variety of treadmills, ellipticals, weights, and stationery bicycles to keep workouts fun and interesting. Residents are welcome to enlist private personal trainers. The benefits of regular exercise include increasing longevity, increasing a sense of well-being and calm, weight loss, improving sleep and cardio-vascular health, and improving one’s mood and ability to work well with others. There is a saying: “Before heading to the marriage counselor, head to the gym!”

Downsizing Keeps Life Simple

By unloading the excess baggage of owning too many things, there are hidden benefits of feeling lighter, less constrained, having fewer worries, and moving away from a state of being owned by ones possessions. At the Catalina Spa RV Resort, we have regular patio sales where residents get a chance to exchange goods and keep circulating treasures that have outworn their welcome. The smaller the house, the less there is to clean up!

Friends are Extra Special and Close By

One of the most important benefits of community living in our resort is the sense of belonging and of camaraderie. Neighbors here are true neighbors in the sense that we are all aware of one another for the right reasons, no one goes unnoticed and everyone is welcomed. If family members live far away, they can rest assured that loved ones have a community they truly belong to. Our regular meals together and community gatherings serve to knit together a warm and supportive group setting. No price can be put on the value of good friends in a welcoming setting!

Comfortable Interiors

It is amazing to explore the variety of interiors available to RVers! From flooring to cabinetry, to fixtures, closets and windows, there is something special for everyone in RVs whether they are vintage or modern. At the Catalina Spa RV Resort, you will notice some top-of-the-line luxury motorhomes that command top dollar. Over time, it is fun to make friends and visit each other’s homes to compare the best of the best and what works well. At the end of the day, one of the greatest benefits of having a comfortable interior is to be able to live close to nature, open the windows up wide to take in deep gulps of fresh air scented with the fragrance of flowers in bloom, depending on the month.

Our Activities are Second-To-None

Southern California is a draw to all and the Catalina Spa RV Resort is no exception. We are fortunate to attract top notch entertainment including several favorite musical acts. Our 2018-2019 season is full of talent. In addition to entertainment in our Clubhouse, we also offer pinochle, card bingo, cribbage, hand & foot, Mexican train, musicology, Shanghai Rummy, campfire sing-alongs and ice cream socials.

Mineral Spas

Extensive research has been done on the benefits of soaking regularly in mineral hot springs. Our skin, after all, is an organ, and acts essentially like a large sponge, so what we put on our skin, and where we bathe, influences our health. Just like drinking a tall glass of mineral water offers numerous health benefits, so lounging in naturally-fed mineral hot springs can feel rejuvenating and invigorating. At the Catalina Spa RV Resort, we have two large pool areas with adjacent spas, all fed by the local natural mineral hot springs that the Desert Hot Springs Area is famous for.

Close to the Outdoors

The essence of the RV lifestyle is adventure and travel. With a home that can be moved at will, it means that motorhome dwellers are adventurers often seeking new horizons! While it is exciting to travel and see the world, we hope that when you stay at Catalina Spa RV Resort, you make the choice to stay at least a few weeks or months since this is what is needed to explore the vast array of walks, hikes, trails, activities, shops, restaurants, museums, and more in the area. Famous around the world, the Greater Palm Springs Area is not only a buzzing cultural hot spot complete with celebrity-studded film festivals, but a place to call home at the end of the day.

WorKamping is Always an Option

It always makes sense to live within our means. “A penny saved is a penny earned” is a good motto to live by and “Saving today means smiles tomorrow” is also a good idea to remember. The Catalina Spa RV Resort offers numerous WorKamper positions and our WorKamper family is a happy one! In a spirit of mutual support, our team scours the resort until it sparkles and then we relax and have fun at the end of the day! We hope you join us and we will welcome you with open arms!
