CasaPlutonia Retreat
A new destination in Joshua Tree, California

CasaPlutonia Retreat - Experience

Experience an intimate journey to a destination suspended between earth and sky, body, and soul.

 

EXPERIENCE

Located in the Southern California’s Mojave Desert, Joshua Tree encompasses an otherworldly landscape of boulder piles, indigenous Palm oases, historic trails, and an ecosystem that nurtures the remarkable Yucca Brevifolia. At CasaPlutonia guests have an increasingly rare opportunity to recover their well-being, discover their creative muse, or derive inspiration from a breathtaking desert sunset or ponder the infinite magnitude of a solitary Joshua Tree. With an arid atmosphere and expansive horizons, Joshua Tree remains a select destination for relaxation and self-discovery - offering contemplative environments for refreshing both body and mind.

the milky way AND STARGAZING experience 

At Casaplutonia the night sky is a glittering dome sprinkled with beautiful stars, planets and meteors passing through, which can be experienced in the retreat. With some of the darkest and intense nights of Southern California, CasaPlutonia is designed to maximize and frame as many night stargazing views as possible.

THE EARTH ELEMENT COURTYARD

An oasis-like atmosphere would help the visitors calm and regenerate their spirit, potentially giving the impression of suspension of time and place.

THE air ELEMENT COURTYARD

The Air Element Courtyard provides a space with shifted plates between water ponds throughout the concealed courtyard. A concrete plate located at the end of the courtyard is designed as a meditation/relaxation space, allowing the occupant to detect a drastic temperature shift as he/she ascends the space.

 

 

THE FIRE ELEMENT COURTYARD

The Fire Element Courtyard takes the pattern of a broken tectonic plate throughout the courtyard, giving it an illusion of an active volcano in the mist. The broken tectonic plates lead to the fire pit providing a representation of the design element "fire" within the courtyard.

THE WATER ELEMENT COURTYARD

The Water Element courtyard presents a unique body of still and running water with openings that allow light to reflect into space while projecting beautiful water patterns onto the concrete walls. The gradient colors of the sky ranging from yellows to blues to reds would permeate the space, as the day passes.

 

 

WELLNESS CENTER

Inspired by the mystical healing traditions of the Joshua Tree, for those who may be interested in more communal activities, the complex includes a wellness center replete a sauna, steam room, and area for spa treatments that is open to everyone.
