The Parker Palm Springs Experience

“Time well spent is time well lived.”
— Mr. Parker


Most of the important things in life can be counted on one hand – time spent with family and friends, savoring a delicious meal, a sense of adventure, and the ability to enjoy the moments as they come. 

Parker Palm Springs is all about the moments, which is why so many of our guests return time and again. Our 5-star hotel in Palm Springs offers more than just luxurious accommodations, spectacular dining, and attentive service. What makes a stay here so special is the array of unique and one-of-a-kind on-property experiences that are rarely found anywhere else, and certainly not all in one location.

Mr. Parker himself is best described as a casual bon vivant. Yes, there is a time for formality, but he prefers relaxed elegance because it makes everyone more…relaxed. Here are a few of Mr. Parker’s recommended ways to spend your time (and live well) with us.



Terre Battu Tennis – Four exclusive red clay courts are ready to help you discover your inner Nadal. Politeness or savagery; tennis whites or neon brights; singles or doubles – that’s up to you. Lit for night play to enjoy the cooler evenings, advanced reservations recommended. Time your visit to our estate just right and you can get some inspiration for your game at the BNP Paribas Tennis Tournament, often referred to as the ‘fifth major”.

Pétanque & Pastis – This classic French boules game is a perfect way to spend the afternoon with friends, old and new. Now, you could play by the traditional set of rules, but we prefer our ‘house rules’.
Step One: Order a glass of Pastis – this is a French game after all.
Step Two: Review the ‘official rules’ – any of our staff can fill you in.
Step Three: Order another Pastis and try to keep score.
Step Four: Retire to Counter Reformation, our on-property ode to lively Parisian eateries – think share plates and an eclectic wine-by-the-glass list. It provides the perfect setting to recount the shots of the day.

Swimming Pools – Palm Springs and swimming pools are like ice cream and ice cream cones; you appreciate them even more together. Three of the best hotel pools in Palm Springs are on our estate and each offers a unique style and ambience worthy of your down time. Add a private Cabana and a refreshing cocktail from Lemonade Stand and you have the recipe for a perfect day by the pool. Relax. Refresh. Repeat.




For those who did not stay up late and maybe especially for those who did, a morning stretch is one of the best ways to get ready for the day. Our resident Yogis are fully versed in all yoga and restorative stretching therapies. Tailored for all abilities from beginner to advanced practitioners.

Wine Stories

California is the viticultural and spiritual home of wine in this country and the Parker Palm Springs cellar is a shrine to great wine with vintages rivaled only by the stories behind them. Be sure to join our Sommelier (a renowned storyteller) for a delicious afternoon of tales and tipples. Perhaps the most interesting and memorable wine tasting in Palm Springs.

Palm Springs Yacht Club

Every desert needs an oasis, and the on-property Palm Springs Yacht Club is a stunning yet tranquil paradise of indulgence and relaxation. From the moment you set foot on our premises, you know you are in for something special. Maybe it’s the thimble of cucumber-infused vodka we welcome you with, or having a key to your own personal locker, replete with a cotton terry robe, flip flops, and other amenities. Regarded as one of the best spa hotels in Palm Springs, here you can choose from a variety of custom treatments and wellness regimes that are sure to revitalize the body and mind, if not the soul.



The Art of the Cocktail

Asking a talented mixologist what makes a good cocktail is like asking a magician the secret to a trick. They will tell you the recipe, but they will never reveal the magic – until now. Join our Mixologist as they pull back the curtain and share the secrets (and stories) behind some of our signature cocktails. Perfect for bon vivants and those who aspire to be. Afterwards, repose to Mini Bar, one of the best bars in Palm Springs, and order like a professional.

Our legendary restaurant continues to receive accolades as one of the best restaurants in Palm Springs. Dedicated to the pleasure principle, it is dark, discreet, and decadent with over-the-top décor and under-the-tank mischief. The menu perfectly matches the ambience – epicurean, savory favorites, with Chef’s personal inspirations. There are no rushed meals here – we offer only one seating per night so you can fully enjoy the evening. Not a tie and tails place but do dress to impress – jackets are required for gentlemen. (If there was ever a room to look good in, this is the one).

Fire Pit Evening

Post cocktails and post dinner, a little fresh air is ideal. Our private, 13-acre property has many hidden surprises including a magical fire pit. A short stroll will find you in a grassy clearing where butterfly chairs surround a large, central fire pit. Sit back, relax, and share the adventures of the day. You can even toast some s’mores if your sweet tooth has not yet been fully satisfied. And do not forget to look up! Palm Springs is a ‘dark sky’ city and our location near the foothills means the night sky is spectacular. You are sure to see the stars in a way you may not have seen them for a while.

Parker Palm Springs Experiences are designed to accommodate every mood. From off-property desert canyon adventures, film festivals, and mid-century modern tours to the simple pleasures of picnic baskets, English Croquet, and naps in a hammock beneath giant palms, time spent here is exactly the experience you are looking for.
