A Desert Oasis Community

Many guests have recounted over the years, what really makes the Fountain of Youth such a special place to stay can be summed up in two words: the people. The helpful staff, the hot springs, the sparkling facilities, these are all certainly parts of what make FOY unique, but the real gem of our desert oasis is the kind of community you’ll be welcomed into with open, smiling arms.

Plunge into the pool every afternoon and join in on a game. Do you live for exploring nature? Groups of hikers, bikers, and off-road enthusiasts meet weekly to adventure together. Just want to relax and get away from everything for a while? You’re sure to make a friend in the sprawling spa areas.

Surrounding attractions include the majestic Salton Sea, California’s largest lake, formed over 100 years ago from a rampant, flooding Colorado River. Another local sightseer favorite is Salvation Mountain, a tremendous art installation by artist Leonard Knight featuring a man-made mountain and a Navajo-inspired dome structure visitors can walk through. Off-road lovers can explore countless trails in the expansive Sonoran Desert, including Old Bradshaw Trail, which leads all the way to the Colorado River. Whatever it is that brings you to FOY, we look forward to serving you and sharing the fun… See you soon!

Relax, rejuvenate, and reconnect at FOY, where friends become family.

Hot Springs Heritage

Fountain of youth


Named after the rejuvenating and near mythical effects of our hot mineral water, the Fountain of Youth Spa continues to be a favorite destination of travelers, adventurers, and leisure-seeking souls from all walks of life. Our natural artesian hot springs produce mineral-rich water renowned for its relaxing, restorative, and healing qualities.

The Hot Springs


With a pH value of 6.55 and dissolved mineral content of 4,585 parts-per million, our hot water is silky on the skin and will leave you feeling younger after every soak. Whether you're looking to ease sore muscles and minor aches, or treat conditions like fibromyalgia and arthritis, generations of our guests have found relief in our water's pain-relieving properties.

The Community


Beyond the water, you'll find a bustling community with an ever-expanding calendar of activities, spotless five-star amenities, and no shortage of dramatic sunsets and picturesque views in every direction. Whether you come for a weekend or stay for a year, we cordially invite you to join in on the fun and become part of our story in the years to come.
