Resort operator Olympus Real Estate Group has purchased the Murrieta Hot Springs Christian Conference Center and Bible College Campus for $50 million and plans on redeveloping the property as a wellness resort. Calvary Chapel of Costa Mesa sold the high-profile complex as it no longer meets Calvary’s needs, according to the Press Enterprise.
The 46-acre property, which was originally developed in 1902 as a luxury health retreat, features hot springs, guest lodges with over 200 rooms, auditoriums and restaurant facilities. Justin Esayian of The Hoffman Company, who brokered the deal, said suitors for the property included churches, medical centers and educational institutions.
Olympus founder David Dronet called Murrieta Hot Springs an irreplaceable property with tremendous history, and one of the top health resorts in the country, adding that the firm looks forward to making the property a world-class wellness destination once again.
