by Jennifer Glatt | Hotel Management

Last week marked a significant milestone for wave-seekers and surf enthusiasts as construction began on the highly anticipated DSRT Surf Resort. This 17-acre AO-designed destination in Palm Desert, Calif., developed by Beach Street Development & Operations, will be California’s first facility to offer man-made surf waves open to the public. The resort’s features include a cutting-edge surf lagoon, four-story hotel, surf center, restaurant, boardwalk, and beaches, with construction expected to be completed in the spring of 2026.
