Tiki Bar Review #44 Caliente Tropics and the Reef Palm Springs, CA

Caliente Tropics Palm Springs

I remember when Palm Springs didn’t have any Tiki bars…

This is totally true! Tonga Hut and Bootlegger Tiki opened up just a few years ago. Before that, the only thing Tiki was Caliente Tropics.

The Caliente Tropics Resort is like a Tiki time machine. Staying at Caliente Tropics is like going back to the early ’60s when the idea of a Tiki hotel was not out of the ordinary.

There totally is! It’s called the Reef and having a Tiki bar walking distance from your hotel room is priceless.

The Reef has a Mid-Century, nautical Tiki vibe going on…

It’s big, tasty, and strong!

Most people come to Palm Springs to check out the Mid-Century architecture. It has the highest number of Mid-Century homes per capita in the US. My love of Mid-Century is what brought me to Palm Springs, but Caliente Tropics is what’s going to bring me back!
