Romance at Parker Palm Springs
“Do you believe in love at first sight, or should I walk by again?”
Sometimes you just know. The sparkle of a smile, a waft of fragrance, a mischievous glance. Its effect is instantaneous and ever lasting. Like a warm, gentle breeze, the moment surrounds and caresses you, inspiring dreams and creating memories.
In California, few destinations make such a first impression as Parker Palm Springs, unrivaled as the best hotel in Palm Springs for couples. From the moment you arrive on our private estate, you can feel that things are different here. There is a sense of unhurriedness in the air — an ideal setting for those wanting to enjoy the finer things in life while celebrating their love.
Our romantic Palm Springs getaway package offers the perfect opportunity to ‘hide your love away’ for the weekend. It begins with complimentary bubbles and includes a late Monday check-out so you can linger longer. What happens in between is up to you. Eat, Play, Love as they say.
Set on a 13-acre secluded oasis, there is so much to do at Parker Palm Springs and something new to surprise and delight around every corner. You may find it hard to leave the property – if not your room. After breakfast, start your morning at one of our three heavenly-touch temperature swimming pools, each with its own special ambience. Relax on the world’s most comfortable lounge chair, soak in some sun, and enjoy an adult refreshment from the Lemonade Stand.
If you manage to tear yourself away from the pool, consider an afternoon in town. Visit an art gallery, check out some of the many famous vintage fashion boutiques, or take one of our complimentary bicycles and explore Palm Springs at your leisure – the town is as flat as Holland, so the riding is easy.
Back on property, enjoy a not-so-competitive game of Petanque, the classic French Boules game, or Croquet. A glass of Pastis or a Pimm’s Cup are the recommended accompaniments, which may or may not help you keep score. If your game is a mid-day affair, one of our delectable picnic baskets, bottle of Champagne included, is sure to add to the moment.
When it is time for dinner, there are wonderful on-property options. A guest favorite is Norma’s, our gorgeous open-air terrace restaurant. Dining under the stars has never been so beautiful – reservations recommended. Or consider sharing plates of tapas at Counter Reformation, accompanied by offerings from their eclectic wine list. And if you still have not left your room, in-room dining is available.
On Valentine’s Day, Norma’s will offer a three-course, prix-fixe menu, including a glass of Champagne on arrival. Pedro Baroso, Executive Chef, says the occasion calls for something extra. “A memorable moment requires a memorable meal. We’re creating a special experience for couples to enjoy.”
Post meal, we recommend a cocktail at Mini Bar, a destination for aficionados in the know. There is a cocktail for every occasion, but Valentine’s Day has its own criteria. After all, who you share a drink with is as important as the drink itself.
Parker Palm Springs is quietly known as the luxury hotel in Palm Springs. We offer only 144 rooms on 13 acres of exclusive, private property. Contact us today to help plan your next vacation, weekend escape, special event, or wedding.
