An oasis in the desert

The Ranch at Death Valley is a veritable oasis set in the blazing heat of Death Valley. Dating from 1933, guests can enjoy a diverse range of activities at this historic resort and look forward stylish accommodation options for a great night’s sleep. Why not try the Golf Course which is one of the world’s toughest golf courses and is also the lowest course in the world at more than 200 feet below sea level! Try authentic and high-quality food and drink at four different venues and venture to the two spring-fed swimming pools for a beautifully natural way to cool off.  Outside of the ranch, why not explore the Death valley National Park? Hit rock bottom at Badwater bay – the lowest spot on the Western Hemisphere or visit Scotty’s Castle at the far edge of the resort complex.


  • Take in breathtaking scenery in the Death Valley National Park
  • Try America’s lowest golf course
  • Enjoy cuisine at several different restaurants
  • Take a dip in the spring fed pools
  • Try star-gazing in this designated Dark Sky National Park

it is okay place to stay

Watsonville, California

I made sure I did not show up early and checked in at 4:15pm( 4pm check in). The process was smooth and easy. My room was in the 700 section and was ready for me to move in. But, the rest of the rooms were not so it was total chaos as the service people were still cleaning. I had to dodge the vacuum cleaners and service carts in the hallway. The room was clean but it was showing some wear. The Wifi was slow but it was free. The 700 building is two stories tall with no elevators. This is a cheaper option vs staying at the Oasis.

A good place to stay, but rather poor value for money

Brussels, Belgium

The advantage of staying there, even for one night, is the perfect location. One stays in the middle of one of the most exiting places we have visited so far. It is good place to witness the sunrise at Zabriski Point (less than 10 mins drive). Very close to Badwater, Artist Drive and even Dantes View. The place is ideal to start the hiking tours (Golden Canyon is a good example) early in the morning, before the heat kills. The hotel is old, even a bit worn and expensve. But the most important is the location.
