Kosherica is thrilled to include The JW Marriott Desert Springs Resort & Spa, a 4 Diamond award winning property, to its All-star Passover collection. The stunning property is one of the most sought after resorts in the country. Situated on 450 acres of lushly landscaped grounds, verdant fairways, lakes and lagoons, Desert Springs is a sprawling oasis offering a remarkable contrast to the stark beauty of the desert. The resort’s famous Venetian-inspired waterways allow guests to board gondolas for transportation to dining, or for afternoon tours past cascading waterfalls beneath the calls of exotic birds. From the moment guests enter the resort’s breathtaking atrium lobby, they begin a journey into a world of relaxed elegance, singular amenities, and exemplary service.


The resort had a $25 million renovation including extensive renovations to the resort’s acclaimed Palm Course, a Ted Robinson, Jr. designed golf course and Valley Golf Course.
