Three-story hotel planned for Bel Air Greens in Palm Springs

PALM SPRINGS, Calif. - A new resort hotel is in the works for the Bel Air Greens Golf Course in Palm Springs.

The three-story resort hotel would include 169 residential units: 

  • 45 single-story cottages
  • 60 two-story detached homes
  • 64 townhomes
  • Priced between $300,000 -$500,000.

Santa Monica-based Watt Companies, who is currently in escrow on the 35-acre property off of El Cielo Road in South Palm Springs, requested its architectural team meet with Organized Neighborhoods of Palm Springs, ONE-PS, this week at City Hall to review the plan.

“After years of no action around this property, we are thrilled the developer reached out to ONE-PS to share their vision for this blighted part of South Palm Springs which has affected the surrounding neighborhoods of Mesquite Country Club, Sonora Sunrise, Los Compadres, Little Beverly Hills and Demuth Park,” said Christine Hammond, Chair of the ONE-PS Code Enforcement and Public Works Committee.

“We appreciate that they took the time to share their ideas with residents who live nearby and gave them a chance to ask questions and provide input. Ultimately, I think this outreach will help make it an even better project, one that appeals to prospective buyers and users,” said Hammond.

The hotel would be at the center of the property, featuring a restaurant, pools, spa, fitness center and tennis courts.

Homeowners will be given the opportunity to purchase a hotel membership that will include recreational facilities and a shuttle service to downtown.

“The Planning Department looks forward to reviewing the application for the proposed project, which will revitalize this blighted area long in need of attention,”said Flinn Fagg, Director of Planning for the City of Palm Springs.
