Santiago Resort is an intimate 24 room luxury resort, marketed primarily to the Gay male community. Located in a highly desirable residential neighborhood in the largely wind-free South area, the resort is located just 10 minutes from Palm Springs Airport and just blocks from the dining and entertainment center of downtown Palm Springs. Within a 5-minute ride guests can enjoy the renown night life, including fine dining, world class entertainment, posh art galleries, and all the amenities associated with the luxuriously upgraded Spa Casino, which features just about all facets of gaming, from Poker to Blackjack and Baccarat, to a wide selection of Slot Machines to try your luck. Despite there being so much to do in the Palm Springs area, we are proud to admit that most of our guests check in, strip down (Santiago Resort is clothing optional) and head straight for our very inviting pool (which is heated year-round to 85 degrees). Our swimming pool, new in 2006, is the largest in any gay resort in Palm Springs. It is accompanied by our equally new 10-man spa. And, all of this is surrounded by more than one acre of lush and meticulously manicured tropical gardens.
Among the towering palm trees, one will find more than 50 species of plantings and cacti, many flowering and flourishing in the magnificent desert climate. And, rest assured there are plenty chaises around our beautiful pool, so enjoy your evenings, into the wee hours if you prefer, secure in the knowledge you will be able to secure your own place in the sun, poolside, no matter how late you choose to "sleep in". Given the level of relaxation here at the Santiago Resort, we have included an extended Continental Breakfast every morning featuring a plethora of choices from bagels to muffins, to 6 kinds of toast, yogurts, fresh fruit and juices, fine brewed coffee and tea, and frequently eggs, bacon and sausage, too.
