Private Retreat with a Vibrant Location

With expansive views of the Santa Rosa Mountains, Shadow Mountain Resort & Club ® feels like a private retreat. Yet it’s within walking distance of  El Paseo, a mile-long boulevard of upscale shops, art galleries, and international restaurants in the center of Palm Desert.

Shadow Mountain Resort & Club ® offers a signature figure-8 swimming pool (360,000 gallons of water), one of the largest in the desert. There’s also a large whirlpool spa, a men’s & ladies saunas and fitness studio, and sixteen tennis courts (including six lighted courts, and three clay), home to the highly acclaimed Desert Tennis Academy.

70 Years of Exceptional Service and Authentic Quality

One of the first resorts in the entire desert, Shadow Mountain Resort & Club ® opened in the late 1940s. Attracted by the relaxed atmosphere, ideal location and consistently attentive service, many have made this a popular destination ever since. In fact, some of our guests today are second and third generation “regulars”. We’d love to count you among them.
