10 Best Luxury Hotels in Palm Springs for an Indulgent Desert Vacation

Desert escapes are all about relaxation, a bit of indulgence and the much-needed "me" time. Luckily, Palm Springs has a number of luxury hotels and properties that specialize in relaxation and indulgence. To make the most of your cherished "me" time, treat yourself to one of the Coachella Valley's luxury hotels and resorts. Complete with luxurious spas, ritzy restaurants and lush grounds, Palm Springs resorts know how to pamper their guests.

A number of resorts, like the Miramonte Resort & Spa, offer decadent spa treatments that will sweep you away from the hustle and bustle of ordinary life. After your treatment, you'll relax in a private spa and pool areas. You can also walk through the resort's rose gardens, spend an afternoon soaking up the sun from a hammock or enjoy farm fresh cuisine at The Grove Artisan Kitchen. Other resorts, like the Parker Palm Springs, offer in-room hot tubs and plush beds that beg you to sink in and let your stress melt away. Or you can spend an afternoon getting lost in the whimsical gardens before enjoying a posh meal at Mister Parker's.

On the other side of town, the Desert Springs JW Marriott Resort & Spa offers gondola rides, an impressive spa, several upscale dining options and 36 holes of golf.
