If you’re trying to plan your summer holidays, why not visit California this year?

The city of Palm Springs has two new additions to its array of hotels, giving even more choice to anyone looking to lap up the California sunshine: the V Palm Springs and ARRIVE hotels. Both are brilliant spots for relaxation and a good night’s sleep after days of exploring Palm Springs’ modern architecture, shopping, food scene and attractions.

V Palm Springs Hotel

Palm Springs’ newest hotel boasts 140 rooms in a stylish desert property. It is located in south Palm Springs, against the backdrop of the San Jacinto Mountains.

The hotel features a sunken, circular lobby, a palm oasis, V-shaped outdoor pool, an inviting poolside bar & grill, a 70-seat restaurant & lounge, and fitness facilities – the perfect spot for those holiday-must Instagram snaps. V Palm Springs is the ideal place to stay, whether you’re spending time with friends around the hotel’s large fire pit, relaxing at one of the aqua yoga or meditation classes, swimming, exploring the surrounding desert landscapes on one of the hotel’s complimentary bicycles.


This modern, 32-room boutique makes a wonderful base camp for those really wanting to go on a journey and fully explore Palm Springs. Owned by Ezra Callahan, the sixth employee of Facebook, ARRIVE is located in the desirable Uptown Design District and utilises technology in smart ways to simplify and indulge the guest experience.
