Just got back from a relaxing, tranquil weekend at The Monkey Tree. From the retro setting, privacy and security, salt water pool and jacuzzis, delicious gourmet breakfast prepared by the owner chef, afternoon sangria, snacks and water in the room...it was wonderful! Highly recommended!

About
Description
The Monkey Tree Hotel is a private 16-room boutique hotel nestled against the backdrop of the gorgeous San Jacinto mountains on a large one-acre property in Palm Springs, California. Originally designed and built in ...More 1960 by renowned modernist architect Albert Frey, the hotel re-opened in 2016, after a restoration by its current owners to its original mid-century modern design. A delicious house-made continental breakfast is served every morning and is included in the room price. Inside the expansive private courtyard are a large, heated saltwater swimming pool and lush lawn area spacious enough to find a secluded area to relax in peace. The hotel also boasts the area’s first Scandinavian spa, which includes a newly built sauna, hot tub and cold plunge. Use the spa to rejuvenate, re-energize, or recover from a workout. Less
