Recalling the vacation playgrounds of Frank Sinatra and the Rat Pack, L'Horizon Resort and Spa transports its guests to the golden era of 1950's Hollywood with stylish Desert-Modernism. Recently renovated by architect Steve Hermann, the hotel's rooms are spacious and open, with sleek wood and glass finishes, warm mood lighting from vintage exposed-filament bulbs, and deep, soft beds. With its own private entrance set among palm trees and giant flowering cacti, each bungalow is a relaxing, insulating, cocoon.
The retro charm continues into the hotel grounds, carefully manicured to embrace the Californian desert. Guests lounging in the shade of the cabana can order drinks from the poolside bar, enjoy complimentary hand and foot massages, or simply marvel at the backdrop of the nearby San Jacinto mountains disappearing into the sky. Floating in the pristine, cool pool at dusk under the palm trees brings a whole new level of indulgence.
Friendly, funny, and enthusiastic, the hotel staff is L'Horizon's final key to success. Upon arrival, guests are greeted with complimentary wine, a cheese tray, and dessert treats, and early risers can expect to see staff tidying furniture and preparing the immaculate grounds. This is a hotel that takes pride in its appearance and its service, and the effort pays off: L'Horizon Resort and Spa is a sea of tranquility amid the heat and activity in Palm Springs.
