Boutique desert sleep that draws the glitterati to its casitas, Moroccan-inspired spa and renowned restaurant
Just 90 miles from Hollywood, this desert hideaway feels a world away from the LA hustle. In the lobby, Moroccan-inspired design includes brightly colored fringed pillows, and settees dominate the visual scene.
Bed & Bath
Guestrooms are optimized for relief from the desert heat, with thick curtains that keep out the sun. Large textile headboards hover above the kingsize beds, and soft Italian linens practically beg guests to indulge in an afternoon nap. Wind down with a signature Moroccan Cocktail: vodka with cardamom, passion fruit and mango nectar.
Most guests spend their time poolside, which is a scene of its own at Colony Palms. Order cocktails at the poolside bar or just laze on the comfy chaise longues. In the evening, dinner at the Purple Palm is in order. It’s always packed with locals and visitors alike, so be sure you’ve made a reservation. Small plates and tapas dominate the menu, and the signature Purple Palm Salad (grapes, sunflower seeds, almonds, goat cheese and white balsamic vinaigrette) is a must-try. When you’re ready to chill out, opt for a massage at the hotel’s Moroccan-inspired spa.
In the Area
Take your plastic for a trip to El Paseo, the Rodeo Drive of Palm Springs; it’s home to such shops as Burberry, Bottega Veneta and Gucci. Or, if you’d prefer to spend the day outdoors, you’ll see magnificent fan palms at Indian Canyons, a desert oasis with fantastic hiking trails. Get a cultural fix at the Palm Springs Art Museum, which has changing exhibitions and a substantial permanent collection, or take in the beauty of the town with a ride on the Palm Springs Aerial Tram, which offers striking views of the mountains and the valley below.
