Hope Springs Eternal

Looking for the best boutique hotel in Palm Springs? Or simply in search of mid-century design fabulousness? Here’s a recommendation for one of the most photogenic boutique hotels on earth: Hope Springs Resort.

Located in Desert Hot Springs, a low-key enclave twenty minutes from Palm Springs, it has all the understated glamour without the crowds. The architecture and design is straight out of a 1950s edition of LIFE magazine and I couldn’t love it more.

Views for days mean that when you get tired of looking at the design (you won’t) you can stare out across the desert to the mountains. And if that starts to pall (it won’t) then there are three hot mineral pools to delight you.

Joshua Tree National Park is within easy driving distance as are countless thrifting meccas. And of course the fantastic restaurants of Palm Springs – Birba being a particular favourite.

Do go. It’s a true delight.
