Indulge All Five Senses at The Saguaro

Posted By: Marissa Willman Tuesday, February 28, 2012
An explosion of color has arrived on the scene in Palm Springs and it’s welcoming guests who are looking to relax and recharge in the desert. The bright rainbow of colors on East Palm Canyon Drive are the signature hues of The Saguaro Palm Springs boutique resort, a Joie de Vivre property that opened in Palm Springs in early February. The 14 vibrant shades painted on the property are taken from the desert’s natural color palette, creating an energetic vibe that’s perfect for a Palm Springs getaway.

The property’s color palette is integrated into each room, with The Saguaro Palm Springs’ signature rich purple carpet playing against bright oranges, deep blues and vibrant reds of the suites. The rooms draw on the mid-century modern design that Palm Springs is famous for, incorporating clean lines and modern furniture into the rooms while black and white photographs hang on the walls to portray the vintage glamour of Palm Springs in the 1950s. Love all things pink? No worries—simply request a pink room when you make your reservation. The hotel is happy to accommodate color requests.

While the rooms are undeniably inviting, the bright yellow decor, upbeat music and lively atmosphere of the pool area are hard to resist. Plenty of lounge chairs surround the pool if you’re looking to soak up the desert sun, and the poolside bar lets you bask in the sun with a signature cocktail in hand. For recreation, try a game of ping pong or bocce ball at the game area near the pool. And don’t forget to get some Zen—the hotel offers complimentary daily yoga classes to promote an atmosphere of relaxation and wellness for its guests.

Looking for deeper relaxation? Treat yourself to one of The Saguaro Spa’s signature and locally-inspired treatments, such as the detoxifying Date Shake Wrap or the Desert Essence Poultice Massage, which combines pressure point massage with a heated herbal compress crafted from local herbs. If you’re interested in a girlfriends spa getaway or romantic weekend, the Saguaro Spa’s massage treatments can be enjoyed with a friend or partner upon request.

Once you’re ready to explore Palm Springs, The Saguaro has a complimentary bicycle cruiser waiting for you. Helmets and locks are provided and the downtown area is just a mile away. If you’re looking to explore the famed mid-century modern architecture of Palm Springs or the city’s museums, check out bike routes here.

For a mid-afternoon indulgence, try one of over 100 tequila varieties and a plate of carnitas tacos at El Jefe, Chef Garces’ Wild West-inspired tapas bar. And you’ll also want to make a reservation for dinner at Tinto, a Spanish Basque restaurant owned by Iron Chef Jose Garces that has been a hit with locals and guests alike.
