We are the meeting point of those whose journeys never end.
Here, the mind, body, and soul will be inspired by desert surroundings and nourished by natural mineral hot springs. It is a sacred place of relaxation that offers healing, rejuvenation, and deep transformation in a serene, organic, and toxin-free environment.
The original hotel was built in 1949, one of the first spas in Desert Hot Springs. Now, redesigned as a human-centered, luxury resort, we boast true exclusivity situated in the Coachella Valley on top of Miracle Hill and nestled between the San Jacinto and San Bernardino mountain ranges.
Angela Rutherford and Natia Courtney
They are both from Michigan, with Angela hailing from Flint and Natia from Detroit. Angela naturally gravitates towards hospitality and creating unique experiences that are inspired by history and nature. Her love of wine, geography, and community propelled her to create and launch The Royce, a wine bar located in downtown Detroit, which is where these two met. Natia's love of children and wanting to improve the lives of those living with disabilities, became a Behavioral Specialist working with children with autism. Angela had a dream of owning and operating a small hotel. She sold her wine bar, found Miracle Manor, and the two decided to leave their lives behind in Detroit and head west to embark on an adventure together in the desert.
Their vision for a re-designed Miracle Manor draws inspiration from nature, history, and Native American tradition. The central theme throughout the experience is environmental and personal wellness, two increasingly important passions in Angela’s life. They invite you to participate in this journey of discovery and transformation here in this magical place.
