Splashtopia at Omni Rancho Las Palmas
For many, it’s Splashtopia, a two-acre water park sparkling in the center of this classic Palm Springs resort, that really sets Omni Rancho Las Palmas apart. Slather on the sunscreen before you head here—the kids will want to stay for hours. From a relaxing lazy river and sandy beach to 100-foot-long water slides and jets for water fights, this is an epic, watery playground. Also take advantage of poolside grills and plenty of lounge chairs for parents to kick back and watch the kids go wild. (If grownups want more peace and quiet, there’s the nearby aforementioned adults-only Azure Pool.)
If your kids ever do agree to get out of the water, they can check out kid-friendly activities such as crafts, games, a junior tennis clinic, “dive-in movies,” and a video-game arcade.
