Terre Battue Tennis

Discover your inner Nadal. Offering four exclusive red clay courts, we are the most distinct Palm Springs tennis resort in the valley. Lit for night play. Our club Pro is available for private lessons. Reservations recommended.

The Boiler Room

Located off of the Palm Springs Yacht Club, our gym and fitness studio is open 24-hours. Equipped with a variety of Techogym strength and cardio machines. We are happy to arrange for a personal trainer.

Pétanque & Pastis

The classic French boules game is one of the best ways to wile away an afternoon in the company of friends, old and new. Word to the wise — playing without a glass of Pastis is considered bad manners.

English Croquet

Manicured lawns, ivy-covered walls, and a few friends make for a most civilized afternoon. Take your shoes off and enjoy the grass between your toes, we won’t mind. A Pimm’s Cup is definitely recommended.

Giant Chess

Bring your game to a whole new dimension with our ‘giant chess’ set. The shaded, tiered viewing area makes this an ideal spectator sport too. Think Fischer and Spatsky part deux.


Our resident Yogis are fully versed in all yoga and restorative stretching therapies. Tailored for all abilities from beginners to advanced practitioners, it is the perfect way to start your day.

Poolside Cabanas

There is poolside and then there is poolside. Cabanas at Parker Palm Springs are definitely the latter. Chic, sleek, and private, enjoy your day in and out of the sun in comfort and luxury. Available at all three pools.

Spa Emporium

A destination unto itself, our on-property Palm Springs Yacht Club (PSYC) is considered to be the best spa in Palm Springs. A day of pampering and indulgence is a day you deserve.

Fireside Cocktails

Affectionately known as ‘The Library’, the lounge proper, adjacent to Minibar, is a guest favorite. A mix of love seats, couches, and hanging chairs provides a setting for flaneurs, discreet tete-a-tetes, and the occasional voyeur.

Picnic at Parker

A lush, shaded patch of quiet garden, a delectable picnic basket with assorted favorites, and a bottle of bubbles make for a perfect afternoon. Dine en plein air with table and chairs or on a picnic blanket.

Wine Tales

Our cellar is a shrine to great wine with vintages rivaled only by the stories behind them. Join our Sommelier for a memorable afternoon of tales, tipples, and tasting.

World's Smallest Restaurant

For lovers. Opening just after sunset, Mrs. Parker’s Restaurant has only one table for two. This exclusive, private poolside location offers personalized service and an unrivaled ambience.

The Art of the Cocktail

Part magic, part science, a good cocktail need not be mysterious. Our Mixologist will share the secrets (and the stories) behind some of our classic cocktails. For bon vivants and those who want to be.

Fire Pit Evenings

After a day of adventure (or lounging), an evening by our outdoor fire pit is the perfect ending. Relax in a Butterfly chair and recount your exploits, strike up a conversation with a new friend, or simply close your eyes and listen to the desert.
