Right now, Borrego Ranch Resort & Spa has lowered its prices to a wallet-friendlier rate of $295 per night (per person), giving warm weather-seekers no excuse for staying home. The all-inclusive rate buys resort guests:
• Overnight accommodations in a Deluxe Queen or Deluxe King room (all rooms have fireplaces and a private patio)
• A round of Tom Fazio Signature Golf or a 50-minute spa treatment at Morado Spa (or $125 towards spa treatment of choice; popular picks include the Desert Grounding Massage, Detoxifying Massage and Sea Plant Wrap, and The Borrego Tres Facial)
• Breakfast, lunch and dinner daily at either Cimarron or La Cantina restaurants, exclusive of in room dining, alcohol or gratuity.
• A variety of daily fitness programs and activities
If you want to soak up the area’s starry skies, plan a stay over December 11, 13 or 14, 2009 when renowned astronomer, Dennis Mammana, will conduct stargazing programs. Total science geek side note: Borrego Springs was designated as California's first International Dark-Sky Community by the International Dark-Sky Association this past summer.
