CCL Holdings, a Southern California company that has hospitality and real estate properties in California and Hawaii, recently purchased Two Bunch Palms (Desert Hot Springs, CA). “We’re very excited to share the vision that has been started by the previous owners and move forward with the next phase of expansion,” says Tim Chun, vice president of CCL.
In the last two years, the 75 year-old iconic resort has undergone a rebranding to emphasize its award-winning healing waters. It is considered one of the top ten hot springs in the world. The multimillion dollar renovation also included a refurbishment of existing rooms, an addition of new rooms and suites, a new farm-to-table restaurant, and improvements to the infrastructure and public areas. This past summer, the property also became the first carbon neutral resort in North America with the addition of a 550 KW 3.5 acre solar farm. “We look forward to enhancing the guest experience with plans of building a world class spa/wellness center, additional hotel rooms, a second hot mineral springs grotto, and a swimming pool beginning in 2016,” says Kevin Kelly, CEO of Two Bunch Palms. “Two Bunch Palms is leading the industry as the first sustainable wellness resort of its kind in the country and we are thrilled that CCL is committed to promoting sustainable wellbeing.”
