Marriott Shadow Ridge, Palm Desert, CA

About the project:

In the flourishing resort community of Palm Desert, lies Marriott Vacation Club International’s premiere vacation ownership development – Marriott’s Shadow Ridge. With decorative fresco flooring, elaborate antiqued iron fixtures and colorful wall murals, R.D. Olson Construction brought together contemporary elegance with rustic warmth to create the vision of luxury for which it is known.

Honored for its striking design, the property’s sales center received a special American Resort Development Association Award. This impressive, two-story structure boasts beautiful, arched passageways leading into the spacious waiting area, and houses a gallery of other Marriott Vacation Club International properties, twenty offices and a reception center.

Just a “chip shot” away from an exclusive Nick Faldo-designed golf course, is the captivating clubhouse. Clearly a work of art, its grand wrought iron stairwell is the focal point in the foyer, charming the eye and teasing the imagination. Enveloping the stairwell is the room’s worldly beauty, created through the use of Italian tile mosaics and customized carpet imported from England.

At the heart of this stunning resort, is the Spanish hacienda-style central facilities building. Aged distressed beams lend an old-world feel while touches of oak and clear maple wood lighten the room with a classic touch. Pillars of swirled plaster and arched entrances lead the visitor into an inviting reception area.

Against a magnificent mountain backdrop and surrounded by palm trees and artful water features, R.D. Olson Construction brought to life this truly exquisite desert resort with our uncompromising quality and workmanship.
