Even if you're not a gambler, consider 11 your lucky number next time you visit Palm Springs. That's the number of rooms at Dive Palm Springs, a petite boutique hotel with a purposeful 1960s French beach resort vibe. This glorious property was lovingly restored to its mid-century-modern glory and opened for business in November 2019.
Guest rooms feature bright airy design with original murals, premium linens, luxurious mattresses, rainfall showers in the well-appointed bathrooms, and most feature their own outdoor patio.
Even though the hotel is small, that doesn't mean guests will feel piled atop one another (unless that's something everyone consents to behind closed doors!). The restored, original Libott-designed pool makes for an ideal place to cool off year-round, or sneak away to the garden to read a book, meditate a bit by the tranquil koi pond, or jump in the two-person swing and rock the day away in the orchard under an old citrus tree.
DIve Palm Springs might be the closest thing to the French Riviera this side of, well, the French Riviera.
