Looking for a place to surf & stay while at Coachella? DSRT Surf at Desert Willow Golf Resort will have YEW covered. A new, “world-class destination surf resort” coming to Palm Desert in 2021, the $200 million project will include a 270-room hotel, 45 villas, restaurants, retail, and a 5.5-acre surfing lagoon.
Developed by Desert Wave Ventures, consisting of former Solana Beach mayor Doug Sheres and investors, the surf resort has tapped pro surfers the Hobgood brothers, Josh Kerr and Shane Beschen as ambassadors.
“We are a unique team in that we collectively have experience spanning real estate development, surf lagoon development, the surf industry, and are all lifelong dedicated surfers,” Sheres told the Desert Sun.
