Important Bits

  • Type

    Ultra private boutique hotel.

  • Vibe

    Midcentury Mediterranean villa.

  • Location

    Two blocks from the main street in Palm Springs. Just close enough to town, far enough to get your own mountain views.

  • Rooms

    8 suites, each equipped with private gardens and outdoor jacuzzis.

  • Music

    Loungey 1920’s stuff.

  • Year Opened

    2005

  • Designed By

    Curated by the owner, Marina Rossi, who travels extensively all over the world and collects vintage pieces, which then become center pieces around the property and rooms. She teamed up with Parisian carpenter Stephane Vimont to restore pieces back to life.

  • Pool/Gym

    Yes, and the pool is open 24 hours, for those so inclined. No gym but who comes to Palm Springs to work out anyway?

  • Restaurant

    Not on site, however, you can order room service which is almost better...you can stay in your room with the prime minister and no one needs to know.

  • Bar

    By order only, delivered. I just got my own mescal at the store.

  • Minibar

    Yes, but you need to bring your own goodies.

  • Wifi

    Yes

  • Children

    Sure, but it’s more of a spot for super private dates.

  • Price

    High end.
