Day 1 - Arrive on Sunday, at your leisure in the afternoon. It'll be hot (just how we like it!) so feel free to jump right into the pool to cool off and relax after your drive (2 hours from San Diego or LA) or flight. Check into your poolside room at the lush Alcazar Hotel anytime after 3. After a few hours spent sinking into vacation mode, we'll meet up on the pool patio for a welcome cocktail reception and meet & greet. Dinner is only steps away at Birba, where we'll dine together on one of Palm Springs' most festive patios with delicious seasonal fare & wine pairings. Drift off to sleep in your tranquil room at the Alcazar.
Day 2 - We're waking up early today for good reason - to hike up the impressive Skyline trail to catch a gorgeous desert sunrise! We'll climb straight up from the desert floor just far enough to break a sweat, and find an incredible view. Practice a few rounds of sun salutations (and of course take a few obligatory sunrise-instagram-yoga-pics). Breakfast is at your leisure, but may we suggest Cheeky's, on-site at our hotel? We'll be there eating a flight of bacon and a Quinoa Green Breakfast Hash! Spend the day diligently working on your tan, perfecting your pool floating, and getting through that book you've been wanting to read. In the early evening we'll cruise downtown to OliveA'Sudden for an Olive Oil Tasting Party and Healthy Fats & Nutrition Q&A session. Dinner is at your leisure tonight... and there are so many places to pick from! Palm Springs is your oyster!
Day 3 - After a morning bootcamp-style workout in the park across from our hotel, we'll head out for the Palm Springs Arial Tramway. You'll be transported an exhilarating 8000 feet and two and a half miles straight up into the San Jacinto Mountains, for a day-hike in the cool mountain air and pine trees, and more incredible views of the Coachella Valley below. We'll descend in time to get you back to the pool in the afternoon for more r&r in the warm, rejuvenating sunshine. Just as the sun starts to dip behind the mountains, we'll head to a special "Magic of the Tiki Cocktail" happy hour at Bootlegger Tiki. Hear stories about this location (home of the Original Don the Beachcomber!), tales of adventures on the high seas, and learn to make a perfect, classic rum drink. Tonight's dinner is at Workshop Kitchen + Bar - a James Beard Award winner for its innovative menu, seasonal highlights, and beautiful wine list.
Day 4 - A peaceful morning yoga flow class on the pool deck patio starts our last day together, followed by a "pick my brain" fitness/nutrition chat, and goal-setting session, meant to help you infuse more "retreat vibes" into your everyday life. Breakfast is at your leisure at one of the many great spots within walking distance. Come hang by the pool a little longer before you leave - check out is 12pm, but you're welcome to check your bags, use the pool shower, and soak up a little more time in the sun before you depart.
