Palm Beach Resort
The boundary of this property acts like a border to a different world. Internal decor and ambience is buzzing and the grounds are attractively landscaped containing a myriad of facilities appealing to young and old alike.
Although it is some distance from the nearest shops and town centre, it suits those content to stay in a self-contained environment.
Standing back from the main road and separated by a drive up area and parking, the white facade is rather striking when surrounded by its desert surrounds. An arched gateway opens onto a paved forecourt in front of the single height main building which has a series of glass pane doors.
