Desert Resort (Japanese: リゾートデザートResort Desert) is a desert located within the Unovaregion. It is connected to Route 4 at its southeastern exit. It provides access to the Relic Castle. It has two subareas: desert and entrance.
The Desert Resort is split into two distinct areas: a narrow desert path and a large, barren desert. A sandstorm is always occurring in both parts. Like Route 4, the Desert Resort has deep sand rather than tall grass. The Desert Resort's southeastern entrance is a short, narrow pathway that cuts through a rocky hill. A gate at the end of the path connects directly to the inner area. The interior covers a large area and features many sandy hills, valleys, and deep sand throughout its barren ground. In the center of the northern end of the resort lies one of the entrances to the Relic Castle. This entrance is guarded by five statues which are actually Darmanitan in their Zen Mode. If the player uses a RageCandyBar on them, they can be awoken, and will have the Zen ModeAbility. To the west of the entrance is a tower that acts as an exit to Relic Castle. In Black 2 and White 2, this tower is buried in the sand and becomes inaccessible. At the very northern end of the resort, a hillside can be seen sliding into the ocean.
Desert Resort was first mentioned in Team Rocket's mission briefing with Giovanni in The Bloom Is on Axew!. It is said that a special meteorite called Meteonite is located within the desert, and as such, they are told to go to there to retrieve it.
