Play, Pamper, Prowl at Parker Palm Springs

“How old would you be if you didn’t know how old you are?”
Satchel Paige


The best moments in life are the kind that allow you to throw off your cares, kick up your heels, and let you be you. They are the moments we crave, at once fun, indulgent, and truly relaxing. String these moments together over a few days and you have the definition of the perfect getaway at Parker Palm Springs, the best luxury boutique hotel in Palm Springs.

Our private, thirteen-acre desert oasis estate offers so many things to do and explore, you may find it hard to leave the property. Each day presents a fresh opportunity to enjoy an array of unique and memorable amenities and experiences



To stay young, sometimes you simply have to be young. Fortunately, our estate is filled with fun things to do. Begin your morning on the grass with our resident Yogi to work out the kinks. Or find your inner Nadal on our Terre Battue tennis courts. Strait-laced whites or neon-brights, that is up to you. Courts are lit for night play.

Pétanque is a favorite activity of guests. Similar to Bocce but better because our house rules state that the game cannot begin until everyone has a glass of Pastis in hand. A lovely way to spend time with friends, old or new.

English Croquet. If a touch of class is appreciated (when is it not?) then this is the ticket. Played on a perfectly manicured lawn, it’s a Pimm’s Cup kind of afternoon made complete with one of our special picnic baskets from Norma’s. Add a magnum of Champagne and it will be a day you won’t soon forget, what?


Poolside Cabanas at Parker Palm Springs are simply heavenly. The desert sun, gleaming water, your favorite swimwear, and a refreshing beverage in hand is a recipe for relaxation. When it is time to cool off, take a dip, then return to the comfort of your private cabana. Relax, refresh, repeat.

Palm Springs Yacht Club, our on-property spa-emporium, is a destination unto itself and is considered to be the best spa in Palm Springs. A thimble of our cucumber-infused vodka and a key to the private locker room await your arrival. Choose from a variety of custom treatments. Post massage, unwind by the gorgeous indoor pool.

Wine Stories at Counter Reformation is a wonderful way to travel the world without leaving your seat. Our eclectic wine cellar is full of vintages from both near and far. Many have interesting and sometimes hilarious back stories and our Bartenders and Sommelier love to tell them. It is a great place to pair wine by the glass with our small plate menu.

Come evening, wander down to our outdoor fire pit and enjoy the stars in the desert night sky. If you have not been out of the city for a while, you are in for a treat. 


Desert Day Hikes are one of the few ways to see the hidden canyon oases near Palm Springs. Local Native American tribes steward these ancient, sacred sites to ensure the special ecosystems they contain survive for future generations. Hikes vary from 90 minutes to 4 hours. Speak to our Concierge to learn more.

Estate Bicycles are one of the best ways to get around and Palm Springs is virtually flat, making cycling a pleasant way to travel. Stop in at one of the many world-renowned museums or grab a bite to eat, the pace of the day is in your hands (or feet, as the case may be).

Vintage Shopping in Palm Springs might just be the best in the country. Vintage stores, mid-century modern boutiques, antique dealers, and artisans abound, and many specialize in particular items or styles. Shopping here is a wonderful way to find unique and memorable gifts for the special people in your life.

Parker Palm Springs continues to be a favorite of Condé Nast Traveler readers for many reasons. Our location, style, and good taste are certainly part of it, but in our opinion, it is the way we play, pamper, and prowl.
