Set against the Santa Rosa Mountains, this resort started life in 1926 as a playground for Tinsel Town’s top talent, and today guests still feel like stars at this sprawling resort featuring some 796 elegantly appointed adobe casitas, suites and villas. Manicured lawns separate the casitas while other rooms, decorated in early-California style with wrought iron, tile, and dark woods, are in newer two-story units surrounding individual swimming pools and hot tubs amid lush gardens. In addition to an award-winning spa, there’s a world-class tennis club, five championship golf courses, and seven gourmet restaurants, including flagship Morgan’s in the Desert where three-time James Beard award-winning chef Jimmy Schmidt cooks up farm-fresh American cuisine.
In the Area
Duffers will do a double take when they see the awesome selection of golf courses here. It starts with Resort Mountain Course set against soaring peaks and desert sands. For a taste of the game’s Scottish roots, tee off at the Pete Dye-designed Resort Dunes Course. Another Pete Dye design, the TPC Stadium Course at PGA West is one of the toughest in California with unique undulations, cavernous bunkers and an island par 3 to remember. Fans of the Golden Bear will love the Jack Nicklaus Tournament Course where long hitters have room to roam but elevated greens require precision iron play. For Palm Springs golf from a down under perspective, check out the Greg Norman Course, which features an abundance of sand, sage, wildflowers, nine lakes and perfect panoramic views from the tee boxes and greens.
How to Get There
What a beautiful place! We loved our vintage casita. It was great how responsive they were to our needs, bringing us a firmer pillow and an electric tea kettle when we requested them. The bed was comfy and the linens were soft. The bathroom was spacious and clean. I especially loved the shower with its good pressure. Would totally stay there again when we're in the area.
Stayed here again for a work event. Amazing staff, beautiful views, excellent gym, amazing massage at spa.
Stayed in one of the older rooms on main property. Had a connecting door to next door room with no sound protection. Had to get earplugs from concierge.
This is an enormous property with water fixtures, beautiful flowers and landscaping. My room was spacious and clean. Lots of choices for dining. I was on business and wish I could have stayed longer to enjoy property amenities. Highly recommend and will be back.
Excellent !! This is the best resort in the area .
Near of all shopping centers , excellent restaurants , excellent service.
We take the lunch at the Adobe restaurant snd was amazing .
They prepare the Spanish sangria with Mexican tequila , excellent and delicious combination .
A great property that is spread out for nice walks, 41 pools and great food! Had a wonderful time just chilling by our “community” pool as well as touring the property looking at the beautiful flowers. Although it is a more relaxed, casita type feel, it was just what was needed to de-stress. Massage at the Spa was amazing too. Can’t wait to go back!
