Glen Ivy Hot Springs (Corona, CA)

Woot woot! One of my best friends from college is getting married in a little over a week. I’m super excited for her and yesterday a group of us spent the day at Glen Ivy Hot Springs in Corona to celebrate her bachelorette party. I gotta say it was pretty awesome. I haven’t felt that relaxed in such a long time. It was really nice to enjoy a day not worrying about anything and just spending time with friends. We rented the citrus cabana which was super nice. It was great to have a private space to ourselves. We got all of our food comped so for the cabana, my friends admission, and my own admission it was less than 100 which is pretty rad. Usually spas are crazy expensive. Good thing I saved up for the trip! I actually deposited all the coins in my piggy bank but that’s a story for another time. I took plenty of pictures! 🙂

Another group shot. Lahaina had us put on lipstick or gloss and kiss her picture frame. Then we wrote messages and signed it by our kisses.

We took a picture with Aaron. He was our picture boy and escort. He was pretty funny 🙂

Krystal and I making decorating pins for the bachelorette game. We each got to decorate two pins and we weren’t allowed to talk about anything related to the wedding. If we said anything about the wedding than whoever caught us would take one of our pins. Meredith won.

Lahaina had a message so the rest of us ladies enjoyed the pools. This is a hilarious picture of Tiffany trying to teach Genelyn how to float. The picture doesn’t do it justice but it was so funny. I was shaking trying to get a good picture.

BBQ chicken salad for lunch. It was eh. The dressing and the chips were good. The lettuce looked like the kind I buy in the bags at the grocery store and the chicken was dry. Bleh!

Lahaina with her frame! Mine is the one on the bottom right hand corner. Also known as fish lips 😛

Pineapple smoothie! It was so good!!! It wasn’t super sweet and pretty much taste like a non-alcoholic mai tai

Reasons why I love California and can’t live anywhere else. Lahaina’s moving to Nebraska…good luck bestie! 🙂

Cucumber water that was oh so refreshing. They had water stations everywhere throughout the spa grounds.

Trying to get the gems to stick to the pins! It was no easy task

Christina’s lunch of chicken nachos. I was told it wasn’t all that either. I heard the pizzas were good though!

It was an awesome experience. I didn’t get to take my camera with me but we did explore a lot of the pools. We did the saline pool first. It’s basically a pool containing sulfur and smells like rotten eggs. Once you get use to the smell it does wonders. It made my skin baby soft. After that we went to the plunge pools. It was so insane! The plunge pools consist of a hot pool and a cold pool. You stay in the hot pool for a minute and than go to the cold pool for 30 seconds. I did it 10 times before Krystal, Mere, and I tapped out and went to sunbathe instead. Everyone else did it 15 times. We actually recruited other people to do it with us which was hilarious. The cold pool was so cold. I think the water was 50 degrees which is like Monterey Bay, NorCal cold. After the plunge pools we went into the Roman bath for awhile. After that we grabbed lunch and played another game. Each of us except Lahaina wrote two memories we have of her and two wishes we have of the future on sticky notes. Each of us would read four of them and Lahaina had to guess which one of us wrote it. It was so funny because she couldn’t guess who some of them were so she went around the table. Basically it was how well you knew your friends. After we ate we went to Club Mud and exfoliated our skin with mud. After that we baked in this heated room, brushed off the dried mud, and rinsed. The rinsing part was the hardest. It got everywhere! When we were done we headed back the cabana where Lahaina went to get a massage and the rest of us soaked in the pools. We went to three different pools and lounged before hitting the showers. Not everyone got to go but we made a trip to Farrell’s in Rancho Cucamonga and I finally got to try the Gibson Girl. That thing is huge by the way. I got the club sandwich which is a turkey club with bacon. It was three layers and super huge. I was super tired and sleepy by that time and Farrell’s gets pretty loud with all the drumming and singing. It’s entertaining but holy cow, it gave me a headache. If it was earlier in the day I probably would have loved it. Next time!

Fail Sweetly,
Justina

      It was my first time there! 🙂 I think it’s best for groups. We had a group of 7 but if you have like 10+ than it’ll be cheaper. They have a lot of specials for admissions with a massage and cabana rental. The cabana rental is so worth it. It’s really private and pretty quiet up there.

      I love it too! I hate to say it but I think the plunge pool was my favorite. I felt so relaxed after. The saline pool is glorious too. Even though it smells like rotten eggs.
