With a new decade upon us, Hotel Zoso, already a hip hotspot in Palm Springs, has undergone a complete makeover that will make it even more of an exclusive hotel than before. A regular of the Palm Springs Film Festival circuit and Angelenos seeking a chic escape from Tinseltown, an estimated $1.5 Million renovation has transformed the hotel into the ultimate trend-setting Palm Springs destination.
Zoso, meaning “balanced restored” in Greek, is the true definition of this desert gem. Located on four acres, Hotel Zoso offers a serene and sensual setting at the base of the foothills. In fact, if we come into town and we’re not staying at the property – located smack dab in the center of town on Indian Canyon Drive – we sigh and promise to fork over the dough for our next visit.
So now we’ll mention the top-of-the-line amenities because who doesn’t love top-of-the-line amenities? Kohler rainfall shower heads, Herman Miller Aeron chairs, 350 thread-count Frette sheets and down comforters, 42″ high def televisions in every room, and a brand new front entrance where sexy landscaping has been developed to entice consumers – and those strolling the streets of downtown Palm Springs – to pop in for a cocktail or a few nights. A live plant wall lines the reception area, surround sound has been installed for guests to enjoy while lounging poolside or dining outside at the restaurant, and the restaurant, Olivz, transformed into a Greek and Mediterranean inspired dining experience with unique savory dishes, creates an energetic atmosphere when everything else about Palm Springs is desert ease. Stylish Jordan Wave furniture surrounds double chaises and three signature red cabanas. When night falls, flames rise from the bronze glass chips in the seven-foot, quartzite fire pit to warm the cooler evenings.
And no… that’s not all! A brand new fitness center will also provide guests with state of the art fitness equipment for their daily routines, along with early morning yoga and pilates classes near the outside pool area. Did someone say early morning? Oh well, tell me you had a good workout. I’ll be curled up beneath that fluffy white comforter.
Or, better yet, I’ll be holed up at their spa, either getting a facial, a massage, reflexology, or a body wrap. For all you party animals, there’s ZLounge, located on the main floor, the setting for live performances and dinner shows. For larger events, themed nights and promoted parties, their ZLoft also provides guests with dancing throughout the night.
All in all, Hotel Zoso is clearly bringing Palm Springs up to speed.
