If you’ve ever been to Palm Springs, you know it’s the perfect place to relax and escape from reality, if only for a few days. Whether you’re visiting from other parts of California or traveling from around the globe, there’s really no other place like it -- you can’t help but completely relax and forget about the world you left behind.
At The Desert Paradise in the Warm Sands area of Palm Springs, we offer gay men from all over the world a year-round, clothing-optional playground. Located just minutes from Palm Springs nightlife, restaurants, and the Palm Springs Airport, our spacious hotel is a tropical, romantic, Spanish-style Hacienda that was built in the 1940s.
Relax in Our Tropical, Romantic, Clothing-Optional Grounds
Our large sundeck, complete with misting system and padded lounges, has the best view of Palm Springs, secluded within the natural beauty of the San Jacinto Mountains. Here, you can float the day away -- in or out of your clothes -- in our big, luxurious salt-water pool with new friends while taking in the views of the clear desert sky. Take a nice, refreshing shower day or night outside in the shower garden while looking through the trees. Once the sun has set, drift away under the desert night sky while listening to soft music and the many wonderful water features throughout the grounds, including our steam room, sauna or our 8-man, clothing-optional Jacuzzi that sits next to one of our many fire pits -- all surrounded by huge palm trees, lush tropical plants, flowers and beautiful desert cactuses.
State-of-the-Art Rooms in an Old-World Estate
From mirrored walls to California king-sized beds, each pristine, individually themed room provides comfortable, home-style comfort. Our rooms are equipped with state-of-the-art entertainment technology you won’t find at other Palm Springs hotels, including wireless internet, 32 inch, flat-screen televisions and iPod-chargeable clock radios. We also offer a first in gay hotels -- closed-circuit cameras throughout the estate that can be accessed by our guests online (found on every page of this web site is a camera button on the bottom right), providing a way to see if your guests have arrived at our main gate or to check out the gay nightlife in the Warm Sands area. Tile floors, plantation shutters, central heat and air, ceiling fans, wet bars and updated bathrooms will make you feel at home.
I have traveled the world and wanted a place that would be where I would want to stay – that is why I created Paradise and have developed many of my guests as friends. Come be a friend in my home -- your home away from home. Feel free to call us 24 hours a day at 1-800-342-7635 for reservations, or visit our reservations page. I look forward to seeing you soon.
