Slip into a different reality at this boutique midcentury gem
Words by KATHRYN ROMEYN
Palm Springs is synonymous with vintage glamour, but Dive Palm Springs is taking things to the next level. The private, 11-key auberge, which opened in the fall, nods to the elegance of 1960s Saint-Tropez thanks to co-owner Dale Fox and designer Vanessa Schreiber’s singular touches, from a Christian Lacroix ceiling mural to an ornate Belle Epoque elevator turned canopy bed and a 1954 neon artwork of a girl diving that hangs above the tranquil koi pond and inspired the hotel’s name.
Features include a restored midcentury pool (surrounded by striped loungers, cabanas and Serena & Lily hanging chairs) and a velvet-clad lounge. Co-owner and general manager Abdi Manavi says, “Dive transports our guests to a romantic, forgotten world where it’s still safe to relax, play, explore and release all the trappings of modern life.”
From $300/night. 1586 E. Palm Canyon Dr., Palm Springs, 760-323-2231.
