How to Weekend at Parker Palm Springs

“Unless it’s an emergency, don’t bother me after 6:00 p.m. and never on weekends.”
— Merv Griffin

In the days of old Hollywood, Parker Palm Springs was known as a destination for those seeking a true escape— an oasis of delight, relaxation, and indulgence. Today, our private, 13-acre estate continues to reward guests who desire something special for their precious moments of downtime.

Here, the sense that the world will happily put itself on pause is in the air. Our exceptional, personalized service, outstanding food and beverage, and unique activities are curated to ensure the kind of memorable experiences that allow you to truly relax, maybe even dream a little, and reconnect with yourself and the ones you love.

Our large property and wealth of amenities defines us from other Palm Springs resorts. For family and friends looking for a special place to host that long-overdue get together, we offer an environment worthy of the moment.

“It is easy to lose yourself here,” says Brandon McCurley, Managing Director, “and for each guest, it happens in its own special way.” For some, it’s relaxing by one of our three swimming pools in the world’s most comfortable lounge chairs. With a libation in hand from the nearby Lemonade Stand, set down only to take a refreshing dip, the moment can seem eternal.

Others might experience it as they work up a salty sweat on the Terre Battue tennis courts or while engrossed in a Pastis-fueled game of pétanque. It could even be while knocking balls around the croquet lawn as you catch up with loved ones, and everyone forgetting to keep score.

The lush gardens and pathways on our estate offer something new around every corner and for those seeking a moment of solitude, it is often discovered amongst the giant trees of Palm Court. Relaxing in a hammock, enjoying the fragrances wafting in the air from hundreds of citrus trees on the grounds, it is the perfect spot to allow your mind to wander and wonder.

Start your first morning on the estate with breakfast or brunch al fresco at Norma’s, the ideal beginning to a day with so many possibilities. After, and before the heat rises, is a good time to stretch the legs and enjoy the views atop the nearby rolling hills. Or make a day of it. The local desert is spectacular and unlike anyplace else. Our culinary team can even pack you a picnic basket to remember, including Champagne.

Palm Springs is a vibrant community, full of interesting art, shopping, and architecture. The streets are flat, inviting use of our complementary bicycles. Arrangements are easily made through our Concierge who have plenty of suggestions to help you discover some of the town’s hidden gems.

You have experienced so much already, and your weekend is not even half over. It happens like that when you are in an environment that inspires true relaxation.

Back on property, the Executive Chef and his team are already preparing an incredible meal for you. If something truly unforgettable is required, Mrs. Parker’s, the world’s most exclusive restaurant beckons. Sit at a private table by the Gene Autry Pool, under the desert night sky. It is the perfect setting for romantic weekend getaways.

If some evening social time is desired, Mini Bar offers expertly crafted beverages and cocktails. After, stroll to our outdoor fire pit, toast s’mores and look up. There are no streetlights in Palm Springs, specifically so the stars can be visible in all their wonderous glory.

For family and friend reunions, Parker Palm Springs is an incomparable destination. The variety of activities means there is something for everyone and the large property allows for plenty of room to celebrate. Our special Reunion Offer is designed for such occasions. Champagne greets your arrival as a prelude to a weekend of exclusive options and events created just for you.

Ultimately, we believe that ‘weekend’ is a state a of mind, not just a day on a calendar. Your opportunity to escape and unwind awaits.
