A splash of green in California's Death-Valley desert
Activity adventure | Desert | Golf | Natural world
At first glance, Death Valley is nothing more than a barren and inhospitable desert, but look closer and you’ll find water-carved canyons, extinct volcanic craters and palm tree fringed slices of greenery. And, with its spring-fed swimming pools and verdant greenery, The Inn at The Oasis Death Valley is the perfect spot from which to take it all in.
An AAA rated four-diamond resort, rooms and suites look out to the desert and sandstone crags beyond. Some come with a shared deck or terrace to take advantage of those spectacular views while upgrades add in private spa baths, a welcome indulgence after long days spent exploring the austere surrounds.
The Inn’s new restaurant promises gourmet, bistro-style dining set to views of the desert salt pans and Panamint Mountains beyond, a backdrop best enjoyed from the veranda under brilliant blue skies or twinkling desert stars. Open seven days a week, its all-day- dining menus showcase the very best in classic Californian flavours while the not-to-be-missed Sunday Brunch features everything from smoked salmon to freshly baked pastries and barista-style coffee.
Activities include tennis, basketball and volleyball courts, and an exercise room all on site. There’s a small spa, too, offering Swedish, warm stone and reflexology massages, as well as a sauna to complement those wonderfully refreshing spring-fed pools. To round things off, there’s an 18-hole golf course. Ranked by Golf Digest among America’s 50 toughest courses, its mountain-framed fairways, pristine greens provide a unique golfing challenge; at 214-feet below sea level, it’s also recognised as the course with the lowest elevation in the world.
