Featured property: The Spa at Séc-he

The Spa at Séc-he is a one-of-a-kind wellness destination atop the sacred Agua Caliente Hot Mineral Spring, adjacent to Agua Caliente Casino. 

The Spa at Séc-he is a state-of-the-art 73,000-square-foot luxury spa complex offering one-of-a-kind treatments and cutting-edge therapies at the Agua Caliente Cultural Plaza in downtown Palm Springs, CA. The spa was officially opened in spring of 2023 by the Agua Caliente Band of Cahuilla Indians and was named the #1 Spa in the United States by Top 100 Spas of 2023 in the same year. This one-of-a-kind wellness destination sits atop the sacred Agua Caliente Hot Mineral Spring, adjacent to Agua Caliente Casino. 

The new Agua Caliente Cultural Plaza features a new Agua Caliente Cultural Museum, a Gathering Plaza, gardens, an Oasis Trail, and the Spa at Séc-he. The hot spring serves as the focal point for the development and the center draws upon the rich history of experiencing the healing mineral water and the word Séc-he translates to “the sound of boiling water.” The water from the Mineral Spring is estimated to be more than 12,000 years old and is unique in its mineral make-up, which has not been found anywhere else in the world. The Tribe has shared the healing water with visitors for more than 120 years, and the spring was the first tourist attraction in Palm Springs. 

“The opening of The Spa at Séc-he is a milestone our Tribe will not soon forget, and will pass down through the generations,” said Chairman Reid D. Milanovich of the Agua Caliente Band of Cahuilla Indians. “We are honored to share some of our most precious rituals with the world. While an emphasis on healing helped our Tribe thrive throughout the years, so has the connection to the body, mind and spirit – all things you will be enveloped in at The Spa at Séc-he.”

Owned by the Agua Caliente Band of Cahuilla Indians and operated by Agua Caliente Casinos, the global spa destination offers a luxurious and robust selection of treatments using local botanicals and high-tech equipment. Flotation, cryotherapy, and signature offerings like Water Cupping Massages are available. 

“We have carefully and strategically crafted our spa menu to offer something for everyone, using only the highest quality products and technologies expected of a world-class spa destination,” said Daniel Spencer, Spa Director at Agua Caliente Casinos/The Spa at Séc-he. 

There are 22 private mineral baths, a state-of-the- art fitness room, men’s and women’s locker areas with aromatherapy showers, eucalyptus steam room, menthol inhalation saunas with cold experience showers, men’s and women’s indoor and outdoor lounges, relaxation areas with vibrational loungers, grounded tranquility rooms with zero-gravity conductive chairs, halotherapy salt caves, a full-service salon with scalp treatment beds, and a resort-style pool deck with a waterfall pool, zero-edge mineral pool, whirlpools, cabanas, and daybeds. Málmal Café at The Spa at Séc-he and Pál Bar at The Spa at Séc-he offer indoor and poolside Mediterranean-inspired cuisine.

Stand out menu items include:


“This unique gentle release cupping massage has powerful results and functions on the same effects as myofascial work. For an enhanced, one-of-kind experience, the massage is performed on our waterbed treatment table. While floating on warmed water pillows, a cupping technique massage over the body gently pulls and loosens soft tissue and muscle tension encouraging blood flow, cell repair, and a general feeling of well-being.”


“Experience the Botanical power of pure CBD infused oils, healing balms and tinctures to infuse your body from the inside and out for a deep state of relaxation. This blended melody is designed to relieve stress and melt away muscular aches from scalp to sole. The treatment begins with a CBD infused tincture, followed with a balm application on areas of concern. A botanical rich infused foot scrub and heated gemstone massage offers phytotherapy at its best.”
