Palm Springs and its laid-back, desert-chic atmosphere define resort-style vacations, and with a host of resorts offering everything from PGA Championship golf courses to onsite water parks, there's no shortage of indulgences waiting for you at these Palm Springs resorts.
Probably the most notable of all would be the Desert Springs JW Marriott Resort and Spa, where gondolas await to whisk you through the waterways lining the property. The resort is also home to golf courses, pools with sandy beaches, fine dining restaurants, a full-service spa and one of the desert's top nightclubs, making it hard for guests to find a reason to venture outside the property.
Also notable for their onsite water features are Rancho Las Palmas Resort and Spa and the Renaissance Esmerelda. Rancho Las Palmas is home to Splashtopia, its onsite water park, and the Esmerelda has sandy beaches and swimming pools the entire family can enjoy. If you're looking for a quieter retreat, the natural mineral springs and holistic spa treatments at Two Bunch Palms in Desert Hot Springs offer a nourishing escape from the stress of daily life. For a lively poolside scene, don't miss the pool at The Riviera Resort, where you can enjoy a spa treatment at Spa Terre after a few hours by the pool.
