Your turn to plan the BFF get-away? Here are Reba’s tips on how to make yours the BEST EVER.

  • Book a Cabana
  • Perfect little environments for catching up, sipping bubbly and laughing like there’s no tomorrow. Three Rancho Mirage resorts offer this little extra luxury with full pool-side service. They are: Rancho Las Palmas Resort & Spa, The Westin Mission Hills Resort & Spa and Agua Caliente Casino Resort Spa.

  • Get Rubbed the Right Way
  • The spas at the same three resorts are fabulous. Spa Las Palmas at Rancho Las Palmas Resort & Spa and the adjacent Yamaguchi Salon can deliver up any hedonistic toe tip to hair tip experience in a lush old California setting. The Spa at Mission Hills at The Westin Mission Hills Resort & Spa is a hushed retreat where the cares of the world can be eased. Sunstone the Spa is a sleek gleamingly new retreat poolside at the skyscraper Agua Caliente Casino Resort Spa.

  • Perch those BFF in a row on bar stools at Roy’s Rancho Mirage, order a Margarita (with li hing mui, a Hawaiian secret ingredient that brings a little aloha to the Mexican elixir) and chat it up with mixologist Jimmy. Some say Jimmy is the handsomest bar-keep in the Palm Springs Valley. He’s certainly easy to look at, a real nice guy and fun. Have your dinner, or at least starters, delivered to the bar. What to order? Ask Jimmy!

  • Dinner at Shame on the Moon
  • Classic old Palm Springs atmosphere – think Charles Nelson Reilly meets Jane Meadows for first seating and then room gets progressively hip as the night wears on. Request a booth in the main dining room. Good drinks, yummy retro supper-club fare and service.

  • Midnight Slot Action
  • Night owls pack the casino vying for their favorite machines. Acres of slots in a high volume, smoking permitted gaming carnival will wake up all your BFF for some late night fun at the Agua Caliente Casino Resort Spa.
