Korakia Pensione in Palm Springs, California

The Korakia Pensione in Palm Springs, a Moroccan villa built in 1924, is a rare find. Scottish painter Gordon Coutts had been in Tangiers, and wanted to bring the style of the North African desert to this Southern California one. “Dar Marroc”, as he called his resulting escape, thus became a cultural oasis for local celebrities from Errol Flynn to Rudolph Valentino, and was restored in 1989 as “Korakia” (“black crow” in Greek). The house is a rare 1918 California adobe, with a keyhole-shaped grand entrance and ornate, Moorish wooden doors that whisper of glamour.

Start the day with an outdoor yoga class in the clean desert air and complimentary house-made breakfast of Greek yogurt and fresh granola before taking a horseback ride through the canyon. Return to the hotel for an epic Mediterranean salad poolside, and take one of the Korakia’s bikes into town for an afternoon of antiques shopping: this is a mid-century design mecca. Enjoy a Cal-Mex dinner with fresh jalepeno margritas, then bike – or cab, depending on the size of your purchases – back to the hotel to play a moonlit game of bocce. Perhaps fit in a late-night swim under the stars or a glass of wine by the outdoor fire pits, and enjoy a vintage movie (shown nightly). Dream of the massage that’s yours the next day.

I arrived at Korakia a little ahead of schedule after a long drive, anticipating my much-needed vacation. I stepped through the gate ready to be transported into the relaxing, welcoming paradise all the reviews promised, and found... Something a little different. No greeting from the woman in the lobby who I assume worked there (assume, because she didn't introduce herself, welcome me, or even say 'hello'). I was simply informed that check-in was at noon. It was 11.40am. OK, I figured I could relax with a cold drink by the pool, or on the patio, to recover from my drive. Wrong again. She informed me that the hotel had been rented out by a private party the night before, which meant it was theirs until noon. So, even though the guests were all busily packing up their cars, apparently I wasn't allowed to step foot anywhere on the property for another twenty minutes. Since I'm from out of town, I asked where I could go to wait. She told me there was a Starbucks nearby. And that was it. No apologies, no welcome, no 'we're so sorry for the inconvenience'. Instead, I get to spend another five minutes loitering at a coffee shop before I'm allowed to return to the hotel. Which, to be honest, I'm not particularly excited about, if this is the customer service I get to enjoy for the rest of my stay. Look, I understand private bookings make things more complicated, but this was not the way to handle the situation. Korakia boasts of all the many areas on the property - pools, lobby, patio, daybeds - and I'm not sure how having someone sit, peacefully reading in the lobby for twenty whole minutes would have been an issue with the departing guests, especially when I'm paying $300+ a night for the privilege. Guest relations at the Parker are better than this, and that's really saying something.

The place is perfect for couples seeking quite peaceful time with amazing views! The place itself is super authentic and the theme is amazing ! The rooms are clean and the shower is amazing ! Pool is small but has a perfect view of the mountains

First of all, if you are uptight, look elsewhere. Korakia is a haven for those who are looking for a place to truly get away from it all. There's no TVs, the rooms while comfortable, eclectic and shabby-chic, are not super high-end and there is no on-site restaurant. Instead, this magical inn is romantic, hip, quirky and downright one of the best kept secrets. It isn't cheap to stay here but then again you get what you pay for. The rooms are perfect (in my opinion) with lofty beds, fabulous bath tubs and cozy fireplaces and or patios and a yummy hot breakfast each morning. Kids are NOT welcome (which in my book is always a plus) and guests are quiet, keeping the ambiance peaceful and relaxing. The pools are saltwater which I love, with music quietly playing in the background. They will let you hang by the pools even if your room isn't ready and you are also welcome to stay by the pool after you checkout to extend your getaway. Each room is unique but my favorites are the suites. Don't miss the cool black and white films that they show nightly on the platform with cozy pillows-perfect for snuggling up with your significant other under the stars. And I just adore how they illuminate the grounds with candles and the firepits each night---so romantic!

Beautiful grounds, romantic vibe. Simple lovely clean room. Two pools, on the smaller side but very nice. Pool chairs are really old, metal that gets steaming hot in the sun, and cushions all very dingy and stained. Debris (berries) from trees all over the grounds. Cute private breakfast nook outside our room but cushions really need cleaning. No alcohol served, FYI. Simple lunch, great breakfast. Delivered to your room very quickly. Nice place but for the high cost I think they should update the pool chairs and such.

Loved my two night stay at this hotel. The grounds are beautiful and probably a blogger's dream with all the cute walls and setups. My room had a dining table, seating area with record player, little wetbar area, great bathroom with stone shower. Notable: this is a wellness retreat so you will need to bring your own vino. Also, although the rest of the room was very clean and the shower/tub area was really cool looking - it is stone and difficult to thoroughly clean so I would not recommend taking a bath in the tub.
