Life’s a party and why not? You never know who you’ll meet or what adventure you’ll find. So when it comes to planning a bachelor party, a girl’s weekend away, or a reunion with college friends, you need a small hotel that won’t quell the laughter or spoil your fun, one that understands your desire to cut loose and have an unforgettable Palm Springs experience.

Many Palm Spring boutique hotels have less than a dozen rooms, perfect for property buy outs so you and your party can have the whole place to yourselves. Some will even arrange for a chef for on-site catering.

Here are the small boutique hotels that encourage good times and wild-made memories.

The Cheetah Hotel is where all the cool cats go! With gorgeous views of the San Jacinto Mountains, this 12-room mid-century modern boutique hotel is sleek and chic. The entire property has a bright yellow and black color scheme, and there are animal prints and cheetah icons everywhere, all designed by hotel owner and designer Tracy Turco. Each room has a cocktail shaker, so guests can enjoy a stiff drink inside or on their private patios. The pool is centrally located in the middle of the hotel, so guests just have to walk a few steps to take a dip, and the spa is in a separate, more secluded area. When you stay at The Cheetah Hotel, you’re also helping nature — $10 from each booking goes to the Cheetah Conservation Fund.

A delicious homemade breakfast is served every morning and is included in the room price. Inside the expansive private courtyard are a large, heated saltwater swimming pool and lush lawn area spacious enough to find a secluded area to relax in peace. The hotel also boasts the area’s first Scandinavian spa, which includes a newly built sauna, hot tub and cold plunge. Use the spa to rejuvenate, re-energize, or recover from a workout.
