Resort Info
California Drought Water Policy

The Oasis Resort is located in the Coachella Valley which is part of the Sonoran Desert. Water conservation is a priority, and now with mandated water conservation measures issued by both the State of CA and our local Desert Water Agency (DWA), VI is even more proactive on our water use at the Oasis. To meet our 36% goal of reduction:
  • All the ponds have been drained and cleaned
  • The lake in front of the clubhouse has been drained
  • Watering has been set between 10 pm and 6 am three (3) nights a week
  • Current plants are replaced with drought-resistant vegetation

Pools and Hot Tubs: All pools/hot tubs are non-smoking. All pools/hot tubs are heated during high occupancy weeks, Thanksgiving, Christmas/New Year, and Spring Break. During winter months, approximately October through April, every other pool/hot tub is heated (even numbers one year and odd numbers the next). During the warm months, late spring through early fall, the pools are not heated.

EZ Access Units are located on the ground floor.

Studio EZ and OA1 Unit offers: roll-in showers.

EZ Assess Den Unit offers: low rise bath tubs

Access: There are no elevators. The majority of units are ground level with no interior stairs.

  • Studio and One Bedroom EZ Access units are equipped with a roll-in shower instead of a tub.
  • Two Bedroom EZ Access units do not have roll-in showers.

Bikes: Two bicycles come with each unit. Helmets are not provided.

Golf and Tennis: For information please contact the VI Front Desk.

WIFI: VI has upgraded internet accessibility at the Oasis to provide free WIFI in all condominiums, as well as at the main pool and clubhouse.
