One of the highlights of my recent trip to Palm Springs was visiting The Saguaro, the famous rainbow hotel. In fact our friends Allie and Christina booked in here just so we could stop by and take photos!
When we pulled up outside for the first time I actually audibly squealed. I couldn’t quite believe that its rainbow striped façade was real. You’ve gotta love a hotel that doesn’t take itself too seriously.
Located on Palm Canyon Drive the surrounding area was also really great, with a well stocked supermarket just across the road. It’s also only a short 10 minute drive from the airport and the iconic Marilyn statue (Palm Springs is teeny tiny). Everywhere you look the majestic San Jacinto Mountains punctuate the horizon.
I mean, goodness, talk about my idea of heaven…
Damn why don’t I have pink and purple feature walls in my house?! Aren’t they the most perfect colours for taking portraits against?
When you book in you have the choice of a mountain or pool view room but you can actually see the pool from the majority of them. Each suite also has its own balcony (or outside seating area for those on the ground floor).
As we were there in the off-season there were hardly any other guests about, but in the busy summer months I can just imagine how electric the atmosphere must be. This place is made for pool parties and they actually host one every single Saturday!
