Take a look outside and we are completely secluded with 15 acres of Joshua Tree Landscape. Spend the day enjoying delicious meals from our private chef, exploring the desert and practicing yoga to live music. Later, enjoy our first mind blowing desert sunset, then tap into the local community with a special guest sound healing experience. End the evening with some hot tub, then drift to sleep beneath a sky of stars.

Sunrise Yoga & Meditation then make our way into Joshua Tree National Park. Venture from one environment to another as you explore a hidden slot canyon, green oasis and vast desert landscape. Picnic lunch atop a giant boulder then make our way to Hidden Valley to take in some of the iconic parts of Joshua Tree. Finish our exploration with a one of a kind sunset yoga & live music experience in the park. Later, partake in an intentional beading workshop by the fireplace. Begin to feel like family as we listen to music, connect and enjoy a delicious dinner outside beneath the stars. Take a dip in the hot tub and have a glass of wine as we celebrate our time in Joshua Tree.
