About the Enchanted Desert

Set back in a beautiful canyon in the Indio Hills, this amazing venue offers two dining and entertainment areas located on two levels.

Special Occasion CelebrationsThe upper level features a replica Indian Village that has been recreated with historically accurate detail using the same techniques used by the Cahuilla People 2-3,000 years ago. Palteewet features a ceremonial house, kishes [huts] filled with Indian artifacts, and interpretive displays showcasing the foods, weapons, and tools of the Cahuilla Indians. There are three sparkling pools, a running stream, and spectacular views. The upper level includes ambient lighting, path lighting, and colored up-lights on the hills.

The lower level (main event area) showcases the awesome beauty of the desert through the use of spectacular lighting and natural elements. The Enchanted Desert features a magnificent natural desert setting adjacent to a lush natural palm oasis and surrounded by breathtaking hills that are bathed in dramatic colored lighting at night. White stringer lights provide a warm, whimsical feel to the main dining and entertainment area. The venue features a beautiful water feature, desert themed sculptures, bar and buffet areas and a fire pit with fireside seating.

Full service catering, ranging from casual to elegant and full bar service is available through our preferred caterers and we offer lots of fun entertainment and decor options (see options on the right sidebar menu).

With Desert Adventures, we believe that planning should be easy and that there should be no surprises when you get your final bill. For that reason, all of our prices are fully inclusive of any taxes or service charges so that you know up front what your event is going to cost. Please keep that in mind, however, when you compare our prices to events at other venues where pricing is ++, as what may seem like it’s less expensive on the surface often is more expensive in the end once you add on taxes, gratuities, and service fees.

All inclusive special occasion celebration packages include:

  • Choice of BBQ, buffet or plated dinner
  • Full open bar
  • Campfire with marshmallow roast
  • Camp activities including shooting gallery, darts, horseshoes, and gold panning

Additional lighting is required on the upper level if it is going to be used as a dining or entertainment area (additional fees apply). The upper level lighting is designed to primarily allow guests to enjoy the view from the upper level.
