Hello PCM fam, I am baaaack! After a much needed break near the end of 2018 and beginning of 2019, I am back. So where have I been? Long story short, I was so burned out mentally, physically and creatively at the end of 2018, I had to take a step back and reflect and recharge. The plan was to rest until the end of 2018, but I got super ill after the New Years so the break got extended until recently. Don’t get me wrong, I have been creating plenty of contents creatively during the break and doing projects that I feel passionate about. One of my long time bucket list is to visit Death Valley and I got a chance to do that in the beginning of January 2019. During my visit I had the great pleasure of staying at The Oasis Inn at Death Valley, and spending a few days there to unplug in the desert hideaway.
An elegant hideaway since 1927, The historic Inn at Death Valley (formerly The Inn at Furnace Creek) is a AAA-rated four-diamond resort that pampers every guest. Once the exclusive desert escape for such Hollywood elites as Marlon Brando, Clark Gable, and Carole Lombard, The Inn is the perfect blend of Old Hollywood elegance with modernized refinishing back after an extensive, multi-million dollar renaissance. The lounge, lobby, and bar area have all received extensive updates including new furnishings, a completely new bar, and historic paintings that help tell the story of the first pioneers that graced the oasis.
Inn at Death Valley consisting of 66 hotel rooms and 22 Casitas. The Deluxe King rooms are slightly larger rooms that take advantage of views over the oasis garden, desert vistas, or Panamint Mountains. These rooms feature 1 King bed, 3/4 bath with shower and a decorative fireplace. Located in the shadow of the Oasis Gardens’ date palms, the Inn’s Casitas offer unparalleled privacy and luxury within easy walking distance of the Inn pool. Each spacious Casita is over 500 square feet and comes with a complimentary golf cart for guests to use to get around the property (cars cannot get down to these rooms) as well as room options with either 1 King bed or 2 Queen beds. In addition to the main sleeping quarters, each Casita also has a living room with a sleeper sofa as well as a wet bar – perfect for fixing your cocktail of choice while you hear the wind rustle through the palms overhead.
The property also offer a selection of guest services and amenities that will help maximize your stay in Death Valley National Park. Here are some services and amenities available at the Inn available for all guests to enjoy. At the Inn there are two tennis courts and exercise room for those who loves to stay active and in shape. For those who seeking relaxation and calmness, escape and reclaim your senses as you take a dip in the spring-fed pool (always at 87 degrees), stroll through date palm gardens to the bubbling melody of natural springs, watch a glorious sunset from one of the quaint stone patios, or enjoy a cool drink from Stargazers Deck underneath the Milky Way.
Experience the charm of fine dining in one of the world’s most remote settings at the Inn, or savor a hearty meal or buffet in a casual atmosphere at the Ranch. The Inn Dining Room offers fine dining at breakfast, lunch, and dinner. Weather permitting, service is available on the Inn Terrace offering unobstructed views of desert salt pans and majestic Panamint Mountains. Catch regional flavors such as cactus, citrus, dates from the Inn’s garden highlighted in the seasonal menu. Our favorites is the date bread offered daily. It is a delicious treat made fresh for the hotel guests.
Overall, I have nothing but glowing reviews for the Inn at Death Valley. From the warm and friendly staff to the exceptional customer care to the unique lodging experience and fantastic meal offerings, every minute detail is thoughtfully considered to make guest experiences a memorable one and I and so glad to share this jewel in the desert with you all so that if you ever pass through Death Valley, make sure you stop by the Inn!
