Vegas Schmegas. Nashville, Smashville. LA, no way. New Orleans? New BOREleans. Okay, I’m kidding. All of those places are fabulous Bachelorette destinations, but they are makin’ room for the new kid on the block. Palm Springs. Thanks to Coachella, travel bloggers and the amazing work of the media and tourism boards in Palm Springs, this corner of California is becoming the new hot spot for Bachelorette parties!

Thinking about choosing Palm Springs as your fling before the rings destination? Read on for the Ultimate Guide to Planning a Palm Springs Bachelorette!

Where to Stay in Palm Springs

Renting a house on AirBnb is your best bet for accommodating a large group of girls. There are so many great mid-century modern houses on Airbnb with pools. Here are a few of my favorites:

Roseta House – 6 guest, 3 bedrooms, 4 beds, 2 baths 

Beautiful Midcentury Oasis – 8 guests

Chill Poolside Mid-Century Pad – 8 guests

Earth Modernist Pool Home – 10 guests

Hotels

Prefer to couple up and stay at a trendy hotel with infectious energy? Here are a few fun ones:

The Saguaro

The rainbow-coloured hotel with an on-site Mexican restaurant with the best tacos and margaritas. Located a little outside of the main drag of Palm Springs, but close to the Ace hotel.

The ACE

The ACE hotel is one of the youngest, trendiest hotels in Palm Springs. A converted Howard Johnson hotel with two pools, a bar, and onsite restaurant, King’s Highway.

ARRIVE

Hotel with a pool, on-site ice cream shop(pe), ping pong, bocce, bar, and restaurant. Fun vibes all around and a great location.

The Parker

Prefer a quieter vibe with the dreamiest decor and potential celeb sightings? Look no further. (Not booking? Come to Norma’s for brunch one day during your Palm Springs Bachelorette!)

Fun Things to do for a Palm Springs Bachelorette

Group Photoshoot

Purchase/Pack Colourful vintage outfits and hire a professional photographer to snap pic’s around town for a photoshoot. You can frame the photos as keepsakes. I highly recommend Brianna Broyles!

Spa Day!

Head to the Parker for some pampering at Palm Springs Yacht Club and have a meal at Norma’s. Another great spa is the Sands Hotel. Make sure to grab drinks or eat at the Pink Cabana afterward! Looking for a full day of pampering during your Palm Springs Bachelorette? Spend the day at Two Bunch Palms

Pool Party Hoppin’

Make the rounds and hit up multiple hotel pools that are just a short Uber away from each other.

  • Colony Palms “The Purple Palm” for Brunch
  • ARRIVE for poolside games
  • ACE hotel for DJ music
  • Drinks at the Saguaro

Staying at an Airbnb?

Hire Butlers in the Buff (A girlfriend of mine just got back from a Palm Springs Bachelorette and she said Daryl from BITB was amazing) or Manservants  for your pool party

Shopping

El Paseo: Shop this famous strip in Palm Desert (about 25 minutes outside of Downtown Palm Springs) and book pedicures or blowouts at one of the spas on the Drive. Wilma and Frieda is a great brunch spot on El Paseo (they also have a new location in downtown Palm Springs)

Stay local: Shop Downtown Palm Springs on North Palm Canyon Drive & The Shops at Thirteen Forty-Five

Outlets: Head to Cabazon & Desert Hills Outlets for a serious shopping sesh (complete with photos by the famous dinosaurs and windmills)

Vintage Shopping: Head to the Frippery or The Fine Art of Design

Group Cycles around Downtown

Hop on a cycle tour: Try Social Cycle that offers 2-Hour tours, stopping at a few bars & restaurants, or Sunny Cycle. The bike has a flatscreen TV,  stereo, USB phone chargers, misters and electric motor function so you can sip without worrying about sweatin’ too hard.

Rent Bicycles: Prefer to just rent bicycles and explore the mid-century modern streets snapping photos? Rent Bikes from Bikes PS

Day/Overnight Trip

Head to Joshua Tree National Park (only about an hour drive from Palm Springs) or explore the weird and wonderful Salvation Mountain art installation

Time to eat! My favorite Palm Springs restaurants:

Brunch/Lunch Ideas

Norma’s – As mentioned, the beautiful outdoor patio restaurant with

Spencer’s – Want to go out for lunch? Set up shot in this dreamy courtyard at the foot of the mountains

Purple Palm – Patio is set up with open doors spilling onto the pool deck. Great food and drinks

If you want to stay by the pool and order lunch to go, some great spots are:

  • Sandwich Spot
  • In-N-Out
  • Sherman’s Deli

Dinner Reservation Ideas that are great for groups!

Workshop Kitchen – A trendy, industrial chic restaurant with amazing food and cocktails

BIRBA – My favorite restaurant in Palm. Sit outside eating woodfried pizza and sipping wine

Mr. Lyons – A steakhouse with a fun speakeasy in the back! Perfect place to start the night

Feel like staying in? Let the chef come to you!  Book a private chef like William Bloomhuff or Chef Deanna Benson

Nightly Shenanigans

While Palm Spring isn’t known for nightlife, there are a few places that are guaranteed to be a good time.
  • The Nest!

    • Your Bachelorette party would not be complete without a trip to The Nest. Make a reservation in the restaurant to skip the line! Even if you have dinner elsewhere, book a reservation and have your first round of drinks and a couple appetizers at the table before heading into the bar side.
  • Melvyn’s

    • A fun place to go for live music and a martini after dinner!

If you’re looking for a limo for your night out, Cardiff Transportation is very popular!

The two places above are fan favorites, but here is a full list of popular bars and clubs in Palm Springs 

Palm Springs Bachelorette Swag Ideas

  • Custom wine labels
  • Any “Palm Springs Before the Rings” Swag
  • Little Hangover Kits (mini mimosa/bloody mary supplies, Tylenol, travel-sized essential oil)
  • Customized Pool Totes
  • A million floaties (You can buy them from Costco or Walmart when you arrive or each plan to bring one in your luggage)
  • Custom Bikini’s By Alt Swim (see Below)
