The property also has numerous tennis courts, five resort-style pools and numerous other fitness amenities. The Palm Desert spa resort features a vast 38,000-square-foot facility with 48 treatment rooms, salon, bistro, VIP suite, fitness facility and saltwater pool. An extensive treatment menu incorporates ancient healing methods and exotic ingredients from locally grown citrus and dates.
