Must-see recent openings

The Paloma Resort and Sol y Sombra, Cathedral City

Located in Cathedral City, The Paloma Resort is a new 66-room boutique hotel that blends colour with Spanish influences and modernism. Originally a date grove in the 1930s, the property offers an open-to-the-public tapas restaurant, Sol y Sombra, plus a spa, golf green and event facilities.

Upcoming bar and restaurant openings

Coming at the end of summer, Poca Sombra will be the latest tequila bar in Greater Palm Springs, located at the Paloma Resort Hotel. The intimate 14-seat speakeasy will serve high-quality tequila and tapas.


Churrasco Brazilian Steakhouse, Palm Springs

With the Churrasco tradition of Rodizio, meaning all-you-can-eat dining, Churrasco Brazilian steakhouse will be a meat-lovers paradise in Palm Springs.

New health and wellness offerings coming soon

Agua Caliente Cultural Plaza, Downtown Palm Springs

Opening in late 2022, the 48,000-square-foot Agua Caliente Cultural Plaza will include a cultural museum, a hot mineral spring and native gardens with an oasis trail. Historically, the Agua Caliente Band of Cahuilla Indians have called Greater Palm Springs home, and this new Plaza will create a space for visitors to learn about the tribe’s past and present.

Within the Plaza is The Spa at sec-he, a multi-therapy spa. The spa will be situated at the waters which inspired the tribe’s name, with 22 private baths. The water will be sourced directly from the underground Agua Caliente Hot Mineral Spring, said to be 12,000 years old.


Sensei Porcupine Creek, Rancho Mirage

Slated to open in November 2022, Sensei Porcupine Creek is a private wellness retreat nestled at the base of the Santa Rosa Mountains. The 230-acre property is part of a nationally protected monument in Greater Palm Springs, and on opening, it will include classic Californian golf and tennis facilities, luxury accommodation, spa gardens and Sensei by Nobu, exclusively for resort guests.


Palm Springs Surf Club

Designed by professional surfers, the desert will welcome this new club in late 2022, built for everyone from beginners to professionals. The surfers behind the design are Cheyne Magnusson and Kalani Robb, and they have featured a state-of-the-art SURFLOCH pneumatic wave pool, private cabanas, a restaurant, spa and gym.


Acrisure Arena

A brand new state-of-the-art sports and entertainment arena is coming to Greater Palm Springs this December and will be home to the Coachella Valley Firebirds. With a 10,000-person capacity, 20 luxury suites for 16 guests each, four Club Areas and many options for food and drink, this is an exciting opening for entertainment and sport in Southern California.
