From the moment you arrive in Palm Springs, the desert rolls out its warm welcome with warm breezes, clear blue skies, towering mountain walls and palm trees as far as the eye can see. So when it comes to hosting a special celebration in Palm Springs, why wouldn’t you let Mother Nature do the decorating as the breathtaking backdrop for your event? From meetings and cocktail receptions to reunions, your special event becomes that much more memorable in the depths of the desert’s beauty.
You won’t have to look far for the perfect outdoor meeting space, either, thanks to the newly debuted Enchanted Desert event venue in the majestic depths of Indio Hills. This is a unique option for an off-site event after your organization's all-day meetings at the Palm Springs Convention Center.
Owned by Desert Adventures, the same company known for their iconic red jeep tours of the Coachella Valley, Enchanted Desert is a slice of desert paradise on the private Metate Ranch, nestled along the San Andreas Fault about 40 minutes from downtown Palm Springs.
Using natural desert elements as its guiding design theme, Enchanted Desert is surrounded by the desert’s bounty: blooming cacti, calm ponds and jagged rock walls surround the rustic space as the quiet rustle of palm trees and brush carry in the breeze.
The upper level features Desert Adventures’ famed Cahuilla village replica, complete with front-covered huts that invoke the spirit of simpler times. Down below, the lower level hosts everything you’d need for your perfect outdoor event: rustic wooden benches for dining, two bars, a buffet station, portable stages and dance floors and a fire pit for desert campfires.
Enchanted Desert is especially charming as the sun sets over the desert. As the sky gives way to streaks of pink and orange hues, hanging strings of lights illuminate the event space, setting the scene for an unforgettable evening outdoors under the clear desert sky.
Speaking of sky, your guests will find the stargazing is simply unparalleled, regardless of whether they’re using Desert Adventures’ telescopes or simply turning their heads toward the sky. Other activities at Enchanted Desert include panning for gold, horseshoe tosses, darts, target shooting (with pellet guns) and even red jeep tours into the oases and slot canyons of the neighboring San Andreas fault.
