The Westin Mission Hills Golf Resort & Spa

The Property:

Pools, a golf course, mountain views, a spa, restaurants, and more, The Westin Mission Hills Golf Resort & Spa is the ultimate weekend escape. I had the opportunity to visit the hotel the other week and given my schedule was hectic, it was the perfect place to come home to in-between the craziness of my meetings and just sit back and relax. Even in the 105 degree heat!!

Whether you are looking for a golf retreat, place to have your next corporate event, or a simple getaway, The Westin Mission Hills Golf Resort & Spa is for you!

The pools on the property are absolutely beautiful! “Las Brisas” is the main pool and also the largest. It is located closest to the hotel lobby and restaurants making it a fun and convenient area to grab some sun. If you are looking for a quieter afternoon, check out “Las Hadas,” the Adult (18+) pool. Finally there is “La Paloma,” which is the quiet pool!


I had the opportunity to dine at the Westin’s main restaurant, Pinzimini, for breakfast, and I was very pleased with their spread! I mean, eggs, avocado, and smoked salmon are the key foods to my heart! The first morning my friend and I dined at the restaurant and the second morning we decided to order our favorites to the room directly.

Note: the hash browns are not gluten free, nor is the granola!

Gluten-free items are noted on the lunch and dinner menus, and some GF options include the Kale Salad, Shrimp Avocado Salad (my go-to whenever I see one offered!), Beetroot Pistachio Ricotta Salata Salad, and a Buffalo Mozzarella Pizza!!

The Westin is also home to the Fireside Lounge, Las Brisas Cafe, Mission Hills Market Cafe, Season’s Grill, and they have in-room dining! 

Not pictured but also on the property are an amazing tennis court and fitness center! I usually don’t workout on vacations, but I hit the gym every day! It was too nice to skip!

Greater Palm Springs:

Our trip to the desert was to gear up for Palm Springs Restaurant Week! This year, PSRW is June 2-11, and I was so amazed to see how many amazing restaurants are up in Palm Springs, and how they are all so accommodating for people with gluten-allergies!!

Here is where we went:

Lulu California Bistro-
Palm Spring’s go-to brunch hotspot. Gluten-free pizza, pasta, salads, and more! The restaurant’s super causal vibe makes it great for any and all occasions, and don’t leave without diving into a mound of cotton candy!
State Fare Bar + Kitchen- One of the most beautiful restaurant’s I’ve been to in the state of California. Watch the sunset while indulging in gluten-free pita and exquisite cuisine.

King’s Highway Diner- This famous ‘diner’ belongs to the Ace Hotel. Eat inside in the adorable diner, or outside by the pool. Gluten-free tacos are a must, and the restaurant goes out of their way to accommodate gluten-allergies! I’m still dreaming on my Oasis Salad and poolside margaritas!
Bonta Restaurant & Bar- Known for their meats and German delicacies, I was pleasantly surprised to see how many gluten-free options were offered!

Huge thanks to Greater Palm Springs for hosting us on this stay! To read more about Restaurant Week and activities in Palm Springs, visit their website, here!
