The Paloma Resort
67670 Carey Road, Cathedral City
Centered around a historic mission-style adobe that now houses the property’s Spanish-inspired tapas restaurant and speakeasy, the newly opened resort pairs a peppy palette with an effervescent pool scene. One- and two-bedroom bungalows dot the property, each with colorful murals of cactuses, agaves, and other desert plants bringing vibrancy to the walls. The daily resort fee includes use of bicycles, the fitness center, and a putting green, plus first option to reserve the premium air-conditioned Citrus Suite cabana at the foot of the pool, equipped with a full kitchen and optional butler service.

Nine tennis courts, 27 holes of golf, a full-service spa, and a giant azure pool. What more do you need? How about pickleball, racquetball, basketball, bocce ball, and horseshoes? They’ve got that too.
When hunger strikes, DoubleTree’s Polanco Kitchen serves a mix of SoCal-inspired flatbreads, seasonal salads, and specialties like Tajín-crusted salmon with cilantro pesto and green papaya slaw, or braised short ribs with horseradish cream and gremolata. But DoubleTree regulars know the cherry on top is the fresh-baked chocolate chip cookie that greets you at check-in.
