accommodations

5-STAR LODGING near Joshua Tree National Park. Spend three nights at an impeccably styled mid-century jewel retreat on 2.5 acres of stunning piñon and juniper studded Mojave desert. Sitting atop a hill at nearly 4,000 feet above sea level, up the road from the property is the boundary of Joshua Tree National Park. Nature, with all the modern amenities–internet, pool, yoga studio, fire pit, and more.

Share a bedroom and bath or have a private bedroom and bath. Choose from a “Main” house bedroom or a “Pool” house bedroom–Cal King, Queen or Twin beds and cots available.

**A complete breakdown of the retreat center is as follows**

There are three separate structures with a minisplit heating and air conditioning unit in each room.

Main House: The house includes three bedrooms, two bathrooms, living room, kitchen, dining room, sunroom, laundry room, and communal office. Two of the bedrooms offer queen beds and share a full bathroom off the hallway. The master bedroom offers a California king bed and is en suite with its own bathroom (with both shower and bathtub).

Pool House: The pool house, which is a charming converted horse stable, includes three bedrooms (one en suite) and one bathroom. The en suite bedroom has a queen bed, one bedroom has two twin beds, and one bedroom has a queen bed with a pullout queen sofa.

Retreat Yoga Studio: The retreat studio is a single large room (20 feet by 30 feet) that can accommodate approximately 15 yoga enthusiasts.

Swimming Pool: The swimming pool offers a cooling respite on hot days. The pool is not heated so the pool temperature will depend on the outside temperature. There are loungers for relaxation.

Patios: There is ample seating and lounging furniture on the various patios and decks. There is also an outdoor picnic table that seats six for alfresco dining.

Gas Fire Pit: There is a converted a large Chinese wok into a propane fire pit. It is the perfect place to sit on cool nights under a blanket of stars.

The architectural style of the buildings might best be described as “high desert ranch”. The original portion of the house is constructed of brick with open beam sloped ceilings. Most of the floors are rustic Mexican Sautillo tiles.

All bathrooms are stocked with hand soap, body wash, shampoo, conditioner, and hair dryers. Towels and wash cloths are provided for each guest. Yoga mats, blankets, sheets, pillows and hypnotherapy pads are also provided.

food and dining

All meals served are plant-based. Breakfast includes fresh fruit plates, granola, bagels and cream cheese, tomatoes, yogurt, avocado toast, juices and milks. Lunches are brought in from a Palm Springs vegan chef who uses organic and local foods. When wheat or gluten products are served, alternatives are provided. There will be snacks, tea, coffee, and water available at all times. If you need to supplement the food offered, you may bring your own food.

Breakfast, lunch and snacks are included in the price of the retreat, both for residents and commuters. We don’t include dinner in order to give participants an opportunity to eat as they wish and explore the wonderful local restaurants and town. You can also use the kitchen in the main house to make your own plant-based dinner.

Directions

Desert Reset is located in the Joshua Tree National Park area, so we encourage you to fly into Palm Springs, as that is the closest airport. Plus, Palm Springs is a wonderful vacation destination. If you have never been, we suggest spending a day exploring that city either before or after your retreat.

If you prefer not to rent a car, there are taxis (Desert City Taxi), Uber, and shuttles (AM/PM Shuttle Service) from Palm Springs to Joshua Tree. Uber services the Joshua Tree area, and there is an Enterprise Car Rental near the retreat if you decide to rent a car.

If you are flying into LAX and do not want to rent a car, we suggest you take Tesloop (Tesla’s city-to-city car service). It is very reasonably priced and reliable, other LA-based Desert Reset participants have taken it to the retreat in the past.
