I like to visit Palm Springs several times a year and will be going in 2023 specifically for a new spa and other openings.
Palm Springs is my home away from home. My family visits many times a year since it’s only a two-hour drive from our home in Los Angeles, but I think we’re entering a magical alternate universe, with therapeutic dry air and hitting a mountain landscape.
I am planning to go again soon entirely for a new wellness destination, Sensei Porcupine Creek. It is Sensei’s second retreat in the country after Sensei Lāna’i in Hawaii, and converted a 230-acre private estate into an ultra-luxurious wellness center. The resort opened in late 2022 and features a diagnostic center, yoga and fitness pavilions, a swimming pool and the Sensei by Nobu restaurant.
I will combine the stay with a visit to the upcoming Agua Caliente Cultural Plaza to learn more about the local history. It will open in the spring of 2023 and will include a museum, spa and trail, all celebrating the Agua Caliente band of Cahuilla Indians.
Most recently, Acrisure Arena, which opened in December 2022, is now the new home of the Coachella Valley Firebirds hockey team. Next year will also hold concerts and big events; performers for 2023 will include The Eagles, Jimmy Buffet, Lizzo and Reba McEntire.
