Dive into Paradise at Splashtopia

By Amy Yerrington

Fun in the sun is a must in Greater Palm Springs, and the perfect way to stay cool in this paradise is by surrounding yourself with water—and lots of it. My Chill Chaser suggestion is easy—just dive headfirst into Splashtopia.

Splashtopia is located at the Omni Rancho Las Palmas Resort & Spa in Rancho Mirage, a sun-drenched escape for the whole family. There is no shortage of chill things to do at the resort: 27 holes of golf, five fantastic restaurants, more tennis courts that you can throw a racket at and a spectacularly splendid spa.

But it is the on- site, two-acre waterpark that is nothing short of a splashtastic water world. It is surrounded by a 425-foot-long lazy river with two 100-foot waterslides. You’ll find a sandy beach, a Jacuzzi for relaxing breaks and endless water play for the kids. To make it a full day, I can highly recommend grabbing one of the cabanas with food service from the Splash Grill just steps away.

Although this Texas girl was at home on the lazy river (we love to float on rivers there), I just had to go down one the incredible slides. As promised, it was one wet and wild adventure. Want to make a real splash on your next vacation? All you have to do is head to Splashtopia at the Omni Rancho Las Palmas Resort & Spa.
