Personalized attention at this clothing-optional resort
This beautiful 1950's property is one of the longest running clothing-optional resorts serving the gay community in Palm Springs. Perfectly located less than mile from downtown, it is an easy walk to numerous Gay Bars & Restaurants. The east/west-situated pool allows you to enjoy full sun all day. Surrounded by spectacular mountain views and lush tropical grounds, you'll escape in a resort where you can relax and be yourself.

      Peaceful Paradise
      Escape is a peaceful paradise! It's a smaller boutique resort with 12 rooms, a pool, and a jacuzzi. The grounds are immaculate. The pool and the jacuzzi are sparkling clean. Other amenities include free wi-fi and a continental breakfast served daily. The Wi-fi is strong and reliable, and the breakfast spread is simple and clean. It includes fresh fruit, pastries, a variety of spreads, instant oatmeal, tea, juice, and coffee. They have a Keurig machine and have a variety of flavors including my favorite Dunkin' Donuts! I opted for a 'Courtyard Queen' room. It includes a queen size bed, a bathroom with shower, flat screen tv with cable and a dvd player, a mini fridge, a microwave, a safe, a closet, an alarm clock, and a robe. This room also included two chairs and a small table. Just outside the room is also a table and two chairs. The room was clean and comfortable and the decor was modern with a hint of retro style. The housekeeping service was prompt and professional. Escape is beautifully situated in South Palm Springs with a lovely view of the mountains. The mornings are particularly wonderful here. They play a gentle, meditative music by the pool -- that coupled with the view and the grounds makes for a truly blissful morning. The owners Mark and Greg are ideal hosts. They are friendly and accomodating, but not intrusive. They hold a social hour every Friday and Saturday at 6pm, which is a nice way to meet the other guests if you're so inclined. Like most of the gay resorts in Palm Springs, Escape is fully clothing optional. I was happy to be naked my entire stay. Escape is not a particularly cruisy resort -- it's more a place of relaxation and rest. But like any gay resort, you very well may get better acquainted with a new friend.

      A Perfect Retreat
      Escape Palm Springs is the perfect resort to break away from it all and enjoy some relaxing time in the sun poolside. Grounds are immaculate, service is superb - overall a great choice!

      Relaxing Perfected
      Escape Palm Springs offers the perfect combination of a relaxing clothing optional resort and a fun yet low key social gathering spot for gay men in the desert. I've met some of the nicest and friendliest people during my visits to Escape Palm Springs. Mark & Greg do a spectacular job of making every guest feel right at home and always welcome. I love Escape Palm Springs! You will too.
