This resort encompasses perhaps the most stunning acreage in the entire valley, and there is something here for everyone: pools, walking trails, tennis courts, shops, and a dazzling spa all set against a backdrop of two challenging 18-hole golf courses and the Santa Rosa Mountain range. An atmosphere of fun permeates the air here where you can love doing nothing or you can ramp up for the most important day of your life.
