Come see for yourself. Or come back.'s additional notes

The resort’s attention to detail shines through: complimentary iced tea poolside all day long, bottled water and chocolate chip cookies upon arrival, comfy padded chaise lounges and baskets of extra pool towels, all-cotton Italian linens by Mascioni, bathroom toiletries by Gilchrist and Soames. The friendly staff is conscientious without being intrusive: Mention you’re celebrating a special occasion, and presto! A personal birthday or anniversary card appears in your room. A pre-arrival e-mail asks a week in advance if there’s anything they can arrange for your upcoming stay. All guestrooms gaze on to a crystal-clear central swimming pool (kept at a comfy 84 degrees year-round), and the towering San Jacinto Mountains loom behind large guestroom windows making for a dramatic desert backdrop. The East Canyon’s manicured grounds are gorgeously spotlit come night, and the Jacuzzi is smartly tented to eschew the elements.


Luxurious Rooms. Thoughtful Amenities. Carefree Environment & a sparkling pool.

East Canyon's reputation for having some of the most luxuriously appointed rooms in the desert is well-deserved. Whether you choose a Deluxe Queen, Deluxe King Suite or our very special Grand Suite, you can look forward to accommodations that merit the title “luxury.”
