Located in an enclosed one-acre property in Palm Springs, The Monkey Tree Hotel makes a perfect destination for your private events.  With 16 rooms that vary in price and size, we can work with you to structure a buy-out of the entire hotel which would become your private resort compound. We have been told by our larger groups that buying out the whole hotel feels like “a 16 bedroom house with the pool as your living room!”

The Monkey Tree Hotel can be the perfect outpost for your family and friends who may be attending your destination wedding in Palm Springs. The property is large enough for a gathering of 50-75 people so you may want to consider a pool party, brunch or cocktail event to compliment your other weekend (or weekday) wedding festivities. 

A Quote from our wedding guests Courtney and Caren:
“We hosted a brunch and pool-party at The Monkey Tree Hotel as part of our wedding weekend, and rented out all 16 rooms… what a PERFECT way to celebrate with friends and family! Could not recommend it more, as it felt like our own estate… but with all the amenities you would ever want. Feels like a home away from home — if my home also oozed Mad Men charm and came with afternoon sangria!”

Birthdays & Family Reunions

Milestone birthdays (and non-milestone birthdays too) are much more fun to celebrate with your family and friends over an extended stay. Why just have a birthday dinner out at a restaurant when you can have a whole destination birthday weekend?  Come have your own Palm Springs poolside extravaganza.  We can provide recommendations for local vendors such as bartending, dining, floral and decor if needed.



Baby Moon for Desert Mommas

For a bit of quiet, relaxing pampering before your baby’s arrival, treat yourself to a little baby moon vacation. Soak your feet in our Scandanvian Spa cycle, sip some refreshing lemon and cucumber water and take a nice long nap in our saltwater pool (yes, we’ve got fun pool floats). For that extra bit of spoiling, we can arrange for our local massage therapists to come to the property for an in-room pre-natal massage – or as we like to call it… The Desert Momma Experience!

Corporate Retreats

Imagine getting out of the office to brainstorm with your colleagues instead of just sitting in the same old stuffy conference room. Think about the ideas that may come from seeing the mountains in the background all day, the swaying palm trees, and the pink clouds at sun set. Our dining room can be your conference room where we have a 65” TV. The complimentary sangria may also help generate some fresh new ideas.

A quote from Brannan Sirratt, who attended the John & Carole Barrowman Writer’s Workshop:
“This was probably the best conference/retreat environment I’ve ever experienced. The space was intimate enough for close work and personalization, but with plenty of space to escape for quiet reflection. The staff made sure we felt right at home, too. And the breakfast is to die for!”

If you are looking for an authentic mid-century background (think Mad Men by the pool in Palm Springs), look no further.

The property is extremely photogenic from all angles with its mountain views and mature palm trees. There are a variety of locations to film – the swimming pool, a tiki bar, a living room, guest rooms, and even an amazing original bathroom in the jungle suite that opens to a private backyard complete with 1960’s Salterini furniture, wrought iron day beds and its own orange tree.

The property can be made available for commercials, fashion photography, television and movie filming. If you need a place for the crew to stay, that too is an option.

Yoga and Wellness Retreats

If you are an instructor with a following or if you would like to find a location that would be perfect for a yoga retreat, The Monkey Tree Hotel may be just the right fit. A group of 16-20 could be accommodated with use of the grounds as well as the indoor air conditioned space which can be a perfect meditation space. We could provide healthy, light meals throughout the day if you are looking for an undisturbed, peaceful setting.

A quote from Janna Harris, leader of the “Be Balanced Wellness Retreat”

“As a retreat location, The Monkey Tree Hotel feels like a home. The boutique set up truly makes it feel as comfortable as home. The property includes so many intentional and convenient touches (Scandinavian spa, tether pool, stocked fridge full of drinks, etc).  The staff is second to none. Whether you are greeted by the owners or their first in command, you instantly feel welcomed and know that you are in good hands.  The daily breakfast is a worth noting. Each day offers really imaginative and delicious options without having to sacrifice dietary restrictions or overall good nutrition.”

Athletic Training

Whether preparing for a race, or a mid-season tune-up, a “train-cation” may be what you need. Turn our hotel into your group’s training camp. Eat, train, and recover with like-minded athletes. Perfect for Tri-Clubs, Swim Club’s, or Trainers. Train in our pool, run in and around Palm Springs or up in the San Jacinto Mountains, and cycle throughout the flat Coachella Valley on our bike-friendly road lanes. Recover in the Scandinavian Spa with our hot tub, chilled cold-plunge and dry sauna and feel great the next day. With some advance notice, you can also book an in-room massage with us too!
