Amin Casa embodies the luxury of life in Palm Springs. Exclusively adult only boutique hotel for 16 guests. Features beautiful tailored gardens throughout the resort. There is also a guest laundry facility.
This impressive property originally included the main residence and guest house. The garden compound dated to the 1920’s and ’30’s and was once the Palm Springs home of Hollywood screen legend and award-winning actress Gloria Swanson. And yes, it has been rumored that “Joe Kennedy slept here.”
Joseph “Joe” Kennedy, the ambassador to England’s Court of St. James when World War II broke out, consummated his transition from banker to Hollywood mogul at Palm Springs’ El Mirador Hotel in 1928. Gloria Swanson, the biggest silent female star of the 1920s, had approached Kennedy in New York about reorganizing her independent production company while he was in the process of merging his Film Booking Offices with the French-founded Pathé studio. She had broken her contract with United Artists and the cost of her own production company was becoming a major financial strain.
Kennedy seduced Swanson and assigned her husband, Marquis de la Falaise, to act as a U.S. representative for Pathé’s Paris office, the French film studio. Silent films were coming to an end.
When Kennedy came west to take over his new studio, Swanson met him at El Mirador. They had a high-profile affair for two years, often seen publicly with publisher William Randolph Hearst and his mistress, Marion Davies, who would one day own the Desert Inn.
Superbly planned and scaled gardens, Amin Casa provides a stunning setting for a memorable and relaxing stay. This beautiful resort has four private bungalows, each with one-bedroom and a full kitchen. Also available is a pool studio suite with an efficiency kitchenette and it overlooks the pool area.
