The 29 Palms Inn on The Oasis of Mara surrounded by the vast Mojave Preserve is a special collection of guest rooms and desert bungalows that I'd highly recommend as your gateway to Joshua Tree National Park. We only spent one night here but I found myself longing for a little more time. A light breakfast is included, the pool bar serves fun cocktails as well as dinner every evening until 9pm, and they will even pack you a sandwich, fruit, chips + cookie lunch to take on your Joshua Tree adventures. This place felt incredibly sacred with a hint of mystery + magic, not unlike Joshua Tree itself.
