Located in the upscale desert city of Palm Springs, California, the Caliente Tropics Resort is a unique venue for couples seeking a fun, light-hearted wedding experience. A lasting monument to the tiki-culture mania of the 1960s, the resort is a delightful slice of mid-century Americana. Part of the Coachella Valley, the property is a tropical oasis framed by the stunning beauty of the San Jacinto foothills.
Facilities and Capacity
The Caliente Tropics Resort reflects the buoyant tone of the Californian sunshine in which it bathes. Towering palm trees dot the property, with playful Polynesian-American décor abounding throughout. Couples will find a welcoming wedding space in the venue’s outdoor garden, which can accommodate a large air-conditioned marquee for a sizeable party. As the desert sunshine dips below the mountain ridge, loved ones can step inside to an intimate setting or remain out in the warm night air. The resort presents attendees with a large number of well-equipped, modern rooms to choose from. The most luxurious of these, the tropical-themed Tiki King Suite, is spacious and features a separate lounge area that can function as a get-ready area. The property’s pool and large hot tub invite the wedding party to make the most of Palm Springs’ near-constant hot weather. Whilst the spa and massage parlor will certainly tempt those who wish to take a break in the shade. There is ample parking available and the resort is pet-friendly.
Proposing several inclusive packages, the Caliente Tropics Resort’s staff includes seasoned wedding professionals. They offer furniture rentals for the day, and can organize audiovisual equipment as needed. They are also happy to assist in the setup and cleanup of your event.
