The clothing-optional Desert Sun Resort aims to provide a safe, nonjudgmental atmosphere where guests can feel completely comfortable shedding their clothes, basking in the desert sunshine, and letting their stresses slip away. For privacy and discretion, the resort welcomes adults only.

Offering views of the rugged San Jacinto Mountains, this naturist resort is set on 6 landscaped acres with courtyards, water features, stately palm trees, and desert plants. Each of the 3 heated outdoor pools provides a different experience. The lively Activity Pool offers mingling, music, and pool volleyball. The quiet Conversation Pool is ideal for reading and sipping a frozen drink. The Saltwater Pool is the only pool area where laptops are permitted. All pools are open year-round. The fire pit area with a nearby loggia and outdoor Sun Bar is a popular spot to meet during the day and stargaze at night.

The Oasis Café offers a casual setting for lunch, dinner, and drinks, as well as weekend breakfast and brunch. Poolside bar service is available most weekends. The Desert Sun Naturist Spa provides a peaceful setting for massage, facials, and body treatments.
