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
