Start the New Year feeling relaxed, recharged, and ready to take on 2017! After the stresses of the holiday season, take some time to get away from it all with a romantic spa trip to the desert. Borrego Springs is a beautiful desert town with equal opportunities for relaxation and adventure.
La Casa del Zorro
For nearly a century, La Casa del Zorro has been a stylish desert destination. The 42-acre resort encompasses comfortable accommodations, beautiful grounds, and fun amenities including tennis courts, pools, a fitness center, a yoga studio, and a spa. La Casa del Zorro offers the perfect relaxing New Year’s vacation. With The Relaxing Romantic package, you’ll stay with your special someone in a couple’s room with rose petals and a candle lit atmosphere. Together, you’ll experience a 25-minute Hydro Bath, an 80-minute Wise Well-Being Massage with foot reflexology, a glass of wine each, and chocolate covered strawberries.
See amazing geological formations from Font’s Point in the Borrego Badlands. Nicknamed California’s Grand Canyon, it was carved out by water millions of years ago. Today, Font’s Point offers sweeping vistas of sandstone formations in a beautiful desert landscape. You reach Font’s point by driving, but it’s recommended for 4WD vehicles only. If you’d rather not drive yourself, you can take a Jeep tour.
Borrego Springs features a few amazing golf courses that are perfect for an afternoon outdoors. La Casa Del Zorro partners with the Rams Hill Golf Club and the Borrego Springs Resort Golf Club, offering free transportation to and from both courses. Rams Hill’s course was designed by Tom Fazio and has lakes, streams, waterfalls, and amazing views of the surrounding mountains. Borrego Springs Resort’s 18-hole course features beautiful lakes and palm trees, and is good for golfers of any level.
You’ll find Kesling’s Kitchen in the Borrego Art Institute, a nonprofit organization that provides classes, demonstrations, and events for the community. The restaurant serves gourmet wood fired pizzas, as well as sandwiches, paninis, and salads. They also have rotating craft beers and wines on tap! Try a local brew and the Blue Canard pizza, topped with scallions, shredded duck confit, blue cheese, and figs. Take home one of their homemade desserts for later.
