Every summer, tech and media titans descend on Sun Valley, Idaho, for investment bank Allen & Co.'s annual conference, dubbed "summer camp for billionaires. "

This year, the private jets of many of the moguls at the invite-only retreat are already parked at the nearby Friedman Memorial Airport, and bigwigs from Apple CEO Tim Cook to Facebook's Sheryl Sandberg to Snap's Evan Spiegel and Daniel Spotify's Ek have been spotted at the conference, which runs through July 16.

While there, the industry leaders stay at Sun Valley Lodge, part of Sun Valley Resort, which was opened in 1936.

Take a look inside.

A small lake is at the entrance to Sun Valley Lodge.

The hallways are clad with photos of previous, famous guests, like Marilyn Monroe, who have visited throughout the decades.

The Duchin Lounge offers full bar service in a rustic environment.

A 20,000-square-foot destination spa offers treatments like massages, and views overlooking the pool and valley landscape.

There's an outdoor pool area just outside the spa.

Sun Valley Lodge, a 3,000-acre ski resort in winter, offers plenty of summer recreational activities, like hiking and biking nearby trails, and a man-made ice skating rink over the summer. It also has indoor bowling lanes.

Sun Valley Lodge extended its lobby and added floor-to-ceiling windows in 2015 renovation, that also gave bathrooms a modern facelift with backlit wall panels.
