The joys of a mid-week getaway

“A vacation is what you take when you can no longer take what you’ve been taking.”
— Earl Wilson


Table Tennis

Everyone needs a break. From work, from responsibility, and especially from the mundane. If you are ready to plan some time away (who isn’t?), this is a friendly reminder that vacations are like most other things in life; it all comes down to timing.

For true relaxation and downtime, Parker Palm Springs is the perfect boutique Palm Springs resort. 3-day stays mid-week are always the definition of timing because they are always a little quieter. Our private, 13-acre resort always feels a world apart, but a weekday visit allows you to really unwind. 

With so many on-property amenities and experiences, you may find it hard to even leave the estate while here. Three swimming pools, terre battue tennis, pétanque, English crochet, and giant chess are just some of the ways to enjoy your break from the routine. Along with award-winning fine dining, a one-of-a-kind wine cellar, and the amazing Palms Springs Yacht Club (our world-famous spa emporium), there are so many ways to relax.

Here are our Top 3 Reasons for a mid-week get-a-way.

The Perfect Poolside Cabana

There are cabanas, and then there are cabanas — ours are the latter. Time by a cool, sparkling pool in the desert is a quintessential Palm Springs pleasure, and no destination has as unique a combination of swimming pools as Parker Palm Springs. And, nothing makes a day by the pool more enjoyable than your own private cabana. With your favorite cocktail in one hand and a complimentary fresh fruit kabob in the other, you may just think you have found a little corner of paradise. When the thermometer rises, a dip in our heavenly-touch temperature swimming pools is the perfect place to cool off. Relax. Refresh. Repeat.

The Perfect Spa Treatment

There are few resort spas in Palm Springs that can match the overall experience of the Palm Springs Yacht Club (PSYC). A stunning architectural environment, an incredible ambience, bespoke service, and an array of amenities keep our guests returning time after time. From a one-hour relaxation massage to full-on pampering and indulgence, customized treatments are the norm. Whether it is personal time for just you, a couples massage, or a girl’s afternoon escape, at PSYC, feeling like a million bucks never felt so good.

Dark, discreet, and decadent, mister parker’s offers plenty of mischievous fun, everywhere except on the plate. Executive Chef Pedro Barosa has curated a menu of epicurean, savory favorites that receives regular accolades.
