Santiago Resort is a luxury getaway where men come to hit pause, be spoiled, and rediscover the bliss of completely giving in to the moment. 

A private, swimsuit-optional escape for gay men resting at the foot of the San Jacinto Mountains, Santiago is a place where the stillness and serenity of the desert infuse everything. Where the bubbling spa, rustling palms, and singing birds become your personal soundtrack. Where your only commute is the one from your room to the pool. And you look forward to it. 

Santiago’s professional staff effortlessly provides attentive service while allowing you just the right degree of solitude. It’s a combination that creates a tranquil atmosphere of casual extravagance unmatched anywhere in the desert. So come step through our gate. Exhale. And smile. You made it.
