Palm Springs, home to Hollywood royalty in years past, is a great get- away – and a perfect honeymoon.
When you see the velvet rope indicating the valet entrance, you know you’ve arrived. Step under the archway and sounds from the courtyard fountain drown your cares. Look past the pool and clover shaped Jacuzzi to the terrace and restaurant. Morning coffee will be served here, but for now head in for a gourmet treat.
At the Purple Palm Restaurant and Bar, high baguette seating creates intimate spaces to munch on Mediterranean delights such as stuffed Medjool dates, red pepper soup and a very generous bouillabaisse overflowing with fish, shrimp, scallops and clams.
After a nightcap, turn in to your plush, Moroccan-inspired sleeping room. Where else will you find polished concrete flooring, a bright rug headboard, and decorative tile in the spacious bathroom? Upping the high-end factor: a walk-in shower, Co. Bigelow toiletries and monogrammed robe.
The best part of your stay at the Colony Palms Hotel is the chance to get away. Wake up early and sit by the outdoor fire. Enjoy coffee and a private view of the mountains. Breathtaking.
