Villa Barhi is a Mediterranean castle with a fabulous private pool in Thousand Palms, California. This desert oasis estate was established as a holiday property by a team of West Coast event specialists who boast a strong passion for hosting glamorous getaways. With a heart full of love for happily ever afters, they have opened their event venue to newlyweds across the state, helping them celebrate their special day in fun, romantic, and unique ways. Situated in the Coachella Valley, near Palm Springs and other iconic landmarks, Villa Barhi also promises a wedding experience filled with never-ending starlit nights.

Facilities and Capacity

Villa Barhi accommodates intimate gatherings of up to 100 guests and showcases various spaces for wedding celebrations of all kinds. Couples can kickstart forever at the villa's sandy, palm tree-shaded date grove, aromatic with the sweet smell of budding fruit. As the post-ceremony festivities begin, all event attendees can retreat to the mansion's wrap-around patio, where they can mingle and relax beneath the shade of its bistro light-draped roof. The grove welcomes guests once again for a rousing reception, where a sizable white tent with tables, upgraded seating, and an unforgettable gala under the stars awaits.

Services Offered

The Villa Barhi team does its very best to craft exceptional wedding experiences. With over 30 years of expertise in event coordination and hospitality, they ensure that couples have everything that a bold and dashing celebration calls for.

Amazing & beautiful

Villa Barhi is a beautiful, amazing hidden gem in the desert. The owner Pat is an amazing man, he made sure we had everything we needed. I would definitely recommend Villa Barhi to anyone who looking for a place to stay and have an event. My daughter's 21st birthday celebration at this place was priceless. Loved thecpalm trees. Thank you to Pat, and all his staff for making sure we had all we needed. God bless!!!

An experience to remember....

Working with Pat and Summer they were extremely helpful from the rental home to the preparation of the event celebration for my daughters 21st, Summer worked with their vendors for all the decor tables and chairs etc.
We met Steven and Tim the day we checked in and they made us feel at home such amazing couple, I will recommend their beautiful castle to anyone that wants that intimate atmosphere surrounded with beautiful palm trees when celebrating a birthday or a wedding 💒 with close family and friends, not only enjoying nature outside but the guest commentant on the beautiful house i honestly wanted to say ( it was my home) dreams are for free 😆 we will definitely be back......

A Royal Experience

Villa Barhi is a hidden desert gem! The home is beautifully designed, very clean and incredibly spacious. My family indulged in a weekend staycation there while we celebrated my daughters birthday. We wanted to have enough space both inside and outside to entertain our guests and this house was the perfect fit! The decor gave me a royal feeling…the master would be a perfect fit for a bridal suite and the other bedrooms were spaced out way on the other side of the house for plenty of privacy. The outside patio area is great for entertaining. I was able to fit a dj, taco cart, balloon marquee display, 360 Photobooth, AND a bar out there! It was a fabulous experience! If you’re looking for a desert venue to hold your wedding, birthday party, bridal shower, or any other special occasion celebration, I definitely recommend booking this beauty!

Thank you Pat and Steven for the warm welcome and hospitality.
