Murrieta Hot Springs Resort

Murrieta Hot Springs, originally named after its owner Juan Murrieta, was developed into a world-class health spa resort by German immigrant Fritz Guenther in 1902. The resort attracted visitors from across the country who sought to experience the healing attributes of the curative water and to enjoy the luxurious amenities offered, such as mud baths, tennis, miniature golf, and dancing. The resort remained in the Guenther family until the 1970s, when it was sold to Irving Kahn and then to Calvary Chapel of Costa Mesa in 1995. The resort expanded to include modern bathhouses, luxury accommodations, and various recreational activities over the years.

The resort is now being reimagined by those behind The Springs Resort with a mission to continue the stewardship of those before us, maintaining Murrieta Hot Springs’ deep legacy while modernizing it and re-opening it to the public.
