Why We Like This Place
The Westin Mission Hills is no ordinary resort, but an exclusive Mediterranean-inspired retreat that evokes the romance and natural elegance of the desert. Highlighted with cobalt blue domes and tile insets, the resort’s graceful pale-blush façade stands out against a backdrop of silvery hillsides. Arched breezeways and curved walls throughout please the eye, while 360 acres of waterways and lush landscaping harmonize with the picturesque surroundings.
Even a brief visit here entices you to surrender to the desert’s rhythm: Swim in cool pools resembling tropical lagoons. Sip a glass of frosty champagne after your afternoon massage, and admire the snow-topped mountain peaks bathed in the rosy glow of sunset. At night, celebrate in exquisite ballrooms and impeccably designed outdoor locations beneath a star-studded sky. Under the accomplished direction of Westin’s event professionals, your special event will be customized for your budget, taste and unique style, from bridal shower to day-after brunch.
Many couples stage a “welcome reception” for their guests in the Oasis Den, a fun game lounge and social media hub. With a pool table, shuffleboard, full arcade, and its own bar, the Den’s interactive atmosphere is a perfect place for everyone to get to know each other before the festivities begin.
The resort’s most popular ceremony site is quintessential Palm Springs: a generous swath of manicured lawn sheltered by a towering palm canopy at one end and sweet-scented citrus trees at the other. Vows are exchanged in front of a modern fountain, whose water cascades into a trio of sparkling aqua pools. Just beyond, a sweeping arcade leads to a dramatic rock waterfall fringed with tropical foliage—couples come from miles around just to be photographed at this gorgeous spot.
Near the waterfall, the bi-level Masters Plaza is large enough to accommodate all phases of your event outdoors. Exchange vows under a grand pergola facing the adjacent golf greens, and then dine amidst rows of stately palm trees.
Each of the resort’s two luxurious ballrooms comes with a stunning foyer and private view-filled patio. The lavish Celebrity Ballroom features opulent beaded chandeliers that glitter overhead, lending a contemporary glamour to any celebration. True to its name, this magnificent space has hosted celebrity-studded galas for up to 1,200 guests to rave reviews. The cuisine at your reception will also receive raves. Event menus are overseen by a James Beard Foundation-honored chef who’ll personalize your culinary presentation to your specific vision.
Friends and family will be delighted that you’ve chosen Westin Mission Hills for your wedding weekend—there’s so much to do! Two world-class golf courses, seven tennis courts and three swimming pools provide plenty of recreation options. Then relax and renew at the tranquil spa, which offers an extensive treatment menu as well as a full-service hair and nail salon. Dining choices range from a poolside bar to the resort’s signature restaurant, Pinzimini. Boasting sophisticated modern Italian fare, Pinzimini can also host rehearsal dinners and parties in their private atrium dining room or outdoor fire pit patio. At the end of the day, a dream-filled sleep is virtually guaranteed in Westin’s ultra-plush “Heavenly Bed.”
And “heavenly” is how you’ll describe your total experience at the enchanting Westin Mission Hills Resort—your oasis in the desert.
