Surrounded by a scenic outcropping of the Santa Rosa Mountains in Southern California, The Westin Desert Willow Villas, Palm Desert enjoys a serene location adjacent to one of the area’s most noted golf resorts. Twin monoliths at the entrance of your home resort beckon you to explore the world beyond their stirring presence, where rippling waters accompany warbling birds, walkways are fringed by natural desert elements, and towering palms and wispy firs enhance your view of the azure sky.
Two award-winning championship courses—considered 36 holes of the Coachella Valley’s best plays—converge in one legendary golf destination at the Desert Willow Golf Resort. Surrounded by the spectacular Santa Rosa Mountains, you can choose to hazard the challenging terrain and water features of the Firecliff or relish a more relaxing round on the inspiring Mountain View course.
Three refreshing pool areas sprawl around two deck levels like magical oases of palms and springs against the desert mountain landscape, providing a relaxing main pool with pampering cabanas and a soothing whirlpool spa, a high-energy sport pool featuring volleyball and basketball nets, and a fun family pool with partial shade and a winding 159-foot water slide called the Jimmy Jammer.
As a complement to the new Palo Verde Park, The Westin Desert Willow Villas, Palm Desert opened a refreshing pool area. Now called the Palo Verde Park and Pool, the inviting space is a lush, secluded retreat located along the 16th fairway of the Mountain View Course at Desert Willow. Enjoy the large heated swimming pool and whirlpool spa, poolside basketball, four well-appointed cabanas, covered kiddie pool, and a food and beverage outlet. The pool area is open daily from 7 a.m. to 10 p.m.
For their own half-day vacation adventures, children 4 to 12 delight in locally-inspired activities with enthusiastic Westin Kids Club® counselors, from excursions through the Painted Desert to on-site crafting like poolside pottery painting and tie dye t-shirt creations. And in the evenings, Club PM entertains kids with fun games, activities and food, giving parents an exciting night out together.
Encompassed by elegant emerald greens of Desert Willow golf, the resort gratifies players of other sports, too, with lighted tennis and basketball courts, water volleyball and even rental bicycles for your use—all beneath Palm Desert’s cloudless blue skies—while exercise in the 1,400-square-foot WestinWORKOUT® gym is capped with relaxing, muscle-warming moments in the sauna.
Energizing mornings begin at the Mountain View Marketplace, featuring SuperFoodsRx™ and Starbucks® coffee. Throughout the day, quench your thirst for refreshing beverages and nourishing fare indoors or poolside at the casual Agave Grill & Bar. And for a scenic social gathering of family or friends, grill your own savory meal at one of the four open-air barbecue stations.
