Destination: Desert Oasis

Monday December 10, 2012 / Posted by Patricia C.

Not a gambler but craving a desert getaway?   A jaunt to Palm Springs, AKA, Hollywood’s Playground, might be just the thing.  You know it’s a cool spot if it was one of the Rat Pack’s favorite destinations (along with Vegas of course).


Need a ride? 

Virgin America’s your ticket- with upscale, low-fare flights to Palm Springs from both SFO and JFK.   And just in time for winter getaways, on December 22, we’re adding on a new weekly Saturday nonstop flight from JFK to PSP – the only direct flight offered from the Big Apple to Palm Springs.

To start your trip off right, order a cocktail on demand from your seatback entertainment system, sit back under the glow of our easy-on-the-eyes moodlighting and relax.

Step two – hop onto Facebook via our in-flight WiFi and let your peeps in Palm Springs know you’re flying into town and ready to rock.

Need a place to stay?

The Saguaro in Palm Springs is a perfect spot whether you prefer to spend your desert days at the spa, poolside, lounging at the bar or just admiring the beauty of this desert oasis.  It’s just off the famed Palm Canyon Drive and only a mile from downtown.While you’re there, try the Saguaro Spa which offers hydrating facials, massages and even a “Date Shake detox” treatment that is sure to rejuvenate after any late night.

Make sure to stop by El Jefe for some spicy Mexican small plates and some premium shots at the tequila bar.  More of a wine person?  Then try the hotel’s wine bar and restaurant, Tinto (Spanish for red wine) from Iron Chef Jose Garces – inspired by the culinarily-renowned Basque region of Northern Spain and Southern France.  Sounds absolutely scrumptious.
