Desert Springs Resort is Europe’s only international award-winning family leisure resort with exclusive luxury homes set beside the emerald green fairways of a unique and stunning championship desert golf course, located in the Almanzora region of Almeria, Andalucía in south-east Spain.
Served by three international airports, Almeria, Murcia and Alicante, Desert Springs Resort is easily accessible using both chartered and scheduled 2 1⁄2 hour flights from all parts of the UK and Europe.
Set high on a plateau with panoramic views over the Almanzora valley towards the Mediterranean and surrounding mountains, there is something quite rare and special about the light and ambience of the perfectly maintained desert parkland, the largest rock and cactus garden in Europe… it has an all but surreal sense of beauty, serenity and quality of life and service.
The best climate in Europe…
The Almanzora has Europe’s only desert climate. The area boasts a year round average of a full nine hours of sunshine a day and a total rainfall of less than seven and a half inches. In winter, the average maximum daily temperature is 19°C (67″f) from October to March. It is, without exception, the warmest and driest place to be in Europe in the winter. In summer, it is hot and dry inland but cooler down on the coast, whilst Desert Springs, up on the plateau above the Almanzora, is cooled by pleasant sea breezes.
Besides the luxury homes, Desert Springs has lifestyle and leisure activities for just about everyone, offering a range of exceptional family, leisure and golf facilities.

The Indiana Course
Inspired by the famous desert courses of Arizona & California, The par 72 international championship Indiana course is the first desert course in Europe and has been built to full USGA specifications and the quality standards of these desert courses, now famous for the quality of golf that they offer. It presents unforgettable views, and golf of such a dramatic nature that it can be said to have taken not only desert golf, but also golf in general in this part of Spain to a new level of excellence.
Its immaculate fairways are set amongst massive rocky outcrops, arroyos and dry rivers. The vivid contrast of the ‘desert springs’ and the emerald green fairways with the arid landscape of cactus, rock and flowering desert, is stunning at all times of the year. The whole golfing vision is framed within a panorama of landmark mountain ranges.
Over 600,000 cacti and other desert plants grow progressively more dense and troubling, the further your shot is off the fairway, culminating in the dreaded “spiked lies”, so the course is both demanding and exhilarating, providing a variety of shot-making challenges to test the skill level of every player, from the beginner to professional.
Course designer Peter McEvoy
“We have created a course which really can be enjoyed by players of all different standards, we have kept the fairways generous and ensured that the less expert player can enjoy and improve his game whilst absorbing the awesome landscape and views that encompass The Indiana.
On the other hand, every hole has features which can be brought into play; the springs, watercourses, dry river beds, rock and cactus areas and bunkers are strategically located to examine the skills of golf’s leading players when playing off the championship tees.”
