A Magical Arrival

As you step onto the grounds of the Parker Palm Springs, a renowned California desert oasis, you're greeted by a scene straight out of a Hollywood movie and reminded why it is featured in the Leading Hotels of the World. Towering palm trees sway gently casting shadows across the lush green lawns. The sound of trickling water draws your eyes to the grand water fountain that sits opposite the world-famous entrance, adorned with its iconic striking brise-soleil and tall orange doors. Walking in is a memorable moment in itself - it’s as if you're about to embark on a journey into a bygone era of glamour and luxury. You're enveloped in an atmosphere that seamlessly blends retro-chic with contemporary elegance.

The lobby, adorned with vibrant colours and eclectic furnishings, sets the tone for a one-of-a-kind experience. Each room and suite is a masterpiece of design, featuring Jonathan Adler's signature style of bold patterns, playful accents, and luxurious finishes.

Staying here is nothing short of magical. Whether lounging by one of the hotel's pools, indulging in a spa treatment, or savouring exquisite cuisine at one of its restaurants, every moment is infused with a sense of relaxation and indulgence. Every aspect of the Parker Palm Springs is a celebration of California's beauty.

The Gardens

One of the highlights of the Parker Palm Springs is its meticulously manicured gardens, providing a quiet escape from the desert heat. Lush greenery, winding pathways, and hidden alcoves create a sense of serenity that is unparalleled. Not to mention Adler’s giant banana sculpture adding its touch of quirkiness to the experience.

The Lemonade Stand

Among the lush greenery and right next to the tennis courts and pool, you'll find rows of lemon trees, their branches heavy with ripe fruit. One of the most beloved features of the property is the lemonade stand. Here, guests can indulge in a refreshing treat: freshly squeezed, iced lemonade that is as refreshing as it is delicious. It's a simple pleasure that embodies the essence of summertime.

As you sip on your ice-cold lemonade, surrounded by the beauty of the desert oasis, you'll feel a sense of contentment wash over you. It's moments like these that make the Parker Palm Springs special.
