Disclosure: This visit at Glen Ivy was hosted, but all thoughts and opinions are my own.
On The Healthy Mouse, I am always talking about my passion for healthy eating! Often times, focusing on relaxation and mental health can go on the back burner. This past weekend, I decided to make rest and relaxation a priority so I could de-stress, clear my mind, and feel ready for the week ahead of me. I have for years always wanted to go to Glen Ivy Hot Springs in Corona, CA. I went with one of my girlfriends, and we had the best time!
We started our afternoon with some healthy food sampling and wine tastings at Goco Cafe on property. While there, I learned that much of the produce that Glen Ivy serves in their kitchens is grown right on property! You could taste the freshness of the veggies in every bite, and I always love knowing where my food is sourced from.
I always love a good cheese board, and I must say, this was among the best I had ever eaten anywhere:
After we had some food and wine, we headed to Club Mud, where you exfoliate yourself with clay. I thought it may be a little cold in the winter, but Glen Ivy had heaters all around, making the clay exfoliation feel very cozy. After the clay is dry, you take a nice, warm rinse in their showers (which look like caves, how cool is that?).
Next, we did the Grotto experience. The Grotto is one of Glen Ivy’s signature experiences, where you get a full body moisturizer on you (it’s nice, warm and cozy too), then you go into a dry sauna to let your skin moisturize. You then rinse off and go into a relaxation room for as long as you like, complete with tea. All the rooms in the Grotto experience are underground and looks like an enchanting cave!
To finish the day off, we went back to the Goco Cafe and had some light desserts and hot chocolate in our cozy spa robes. And also….they have a full service Starbucks at Glen Ivy! It’s like this place was made just for me!
There’s so much to indulge in, do, and see at Glen Ivy that I didn’t even get to! There are mineral baths, pools, and natural hot springs, as well as spa services such as massages and pedicures. Whether you want to splurge or be budget-conscious, Glen Ivy Hot Springs has a wide variety of experiences at every price point. So if you have been in need of unwinding, I honestly can’t think of a better place in Southern California to relax! To learn more about Glen Ivy, you can visit their site here.
