Summertime and the Living is Easy

“In summer, the song sings itself.”

— William Carlos Williams

In summertime, the world sounds different. The very air seems to have its own special refrain, its melody enticing us with a promise of pleasure and relaxation. In the California desert, that song sings most sweetly at the oasis that is Parker Palm Springs. 

Spread over thirteen private acres of lush garden, palm forest, and citrus trees, here you will discover a Palm Springs resort unlike any other. It is the ultimate destination to relax, refresh, and energize – one that will soon have you singing your own summertime tune

At this time of year, life is best lived poolside and Parker Palm Springs has three heavenly-touch temperature swimming pools to help you keep your cool on. Collectively, they are widely considered the best pools in Palm Springs. Each has its own special ambience, ensuring a vibe that fits your mood. Add the world’s most comfortable lounge chair and a cocktail from the nearby Lemonade Stand and you have the perfect recipe for summer relaxation. 

Also on our property is the famous Palm Springs Yacht Club, widely considered the best spa in Palm Springs. Deservedly its own destination, it is the one place no guest ever wishes to leave. White cotton terry robe, flip flops, a key to the private locker room, and a thimble of our cucumber infused-vodka will set you on your way to one of fifteen private treatment rooms. It is pampering and self-indulgence in the best sort of way.

Off-property, there are plenty of adventures to discover, and one of the best is the Palm Springs Aerial Tram. It travels two-and-one-half miles along the breathtaking cliffs of Chino Canyon, arriving at the pristine wilderness of Mt. San Jacinto State Park. The cool mountain air and stunning views are the perfect combination for a summer afternoon in the desert.

Come evening, Parker Palm Springs offers many wonderful ways to wind down. Sample small plates and wines by the glass at Counter Reformation, an ode to Parisian tabacs, or settle into the cozy, votive-lit ambience of Norma’s, offering discreet open air terrace dining. Before or after, enjoy a handcrafted cocktail at Mini Bar. Intimate and grandiose at the same time, it is part mod, part modern, and all comfort.

People visit Parker Palm Springs for a variety of reasons – to escape the heat, to escape the grind, but never to escape life. Because, here it is summertime, the living is easy, and it is playing your song.
