The Caliente Tropics Resort in Palm Springs, CA is one of the last remaining tiki styled treasures left in the area.

After its $2 million restoration, this resort is now known as the Caliente Tropics. The owners now expect The Reef bar to reopen with an appropriate tiki theme some time in the future.
