Azure Sky In Palm Springs: The Latest Oasis Escape

When heading to Palm Springs in the summer, temperatures inside the car can soar well above 107 degrees. However, stepping into the lobby of Azure Sky makes you instantly forget about the scorching heat as the cool ambiance takes over.

Designed by Palm Spring’s Cioffi Architects and constructed by Hoffman Steel, the front screen entry at the hotel pays homage to the iconic breeze block walls synonymous with the city. This new addition seamlessly blends with the original architecture of the property.

After a meticulous two-year renovation from floor to ceiling, Managing Operator Acme Hospitality and Real Estate Developer Henry Courtemanche have successfully restored the 1959 mid-century hotel to its former glory both inside and out.

This boutique hotel, boasting 14 guest rooms, showcases custom-made pieces that seamlessly blend the essence of the past, present, and future in its lobby and guest rooms. The lobby, spanning 800 square feet, features a chic cocktail bar at the reception, a cozy fireplace area, and a tastefully decorated living room with textured upholstery. The mirror beam ceiling adds a touch of grandeur to the space.

Guests are treated to a complimentary breakfast that can be savored on the lush green lawn, beside the sparkling swimming pool, or in the privacy of their rooms.

General Manager Sarah Martinez takes pleasure in guiding guests to the scenic lawn overlooking the majestic San Jacinto Mountains. This picturesque setting serves as an ideal venue for events such as parties and weddings, offering 1500 square feet of space for gatherings around the long fire pit for evening cocktails.

The guest rooms are housed in four separate courtyard buildings, each containing two to four rooms. The newly constructed pool area serves as a focal point of the property, with a sprawling 4500 square feet deck area that includes an outdoor bar, fire pit, and ample seating. The stylish wood and jute chaise lounge chairs are neatly arranged under striking black and white umbrellas.

Room 113, a spacious one-bedroom suite, was artfully designed by John Janulis of Lighting Bar Palm Springs, Anne L’Esperance of An Ellipsis Design, and Cioffi Architects. This 620 square feet sanctuary features a sophisticated living and dining area, as well as a fully equipped kitchenette for on-site cooking.

For those staying in room 113, amenities include a selection of dishes, cutlery, a kettle, pots, pans, stocked refrigerator with cold beverages, and local snacks. The suite’s front door color is inspired by the sunrise hitting the towering mountains, while the back doors open to a vast patio with a cozy sitting area and a hammock for stargazing.

The meticulous attention to detail is evident in the exquisite tile work adorning the spacious walk-in showers, complemented by stone flooring and countertops. The custom millwork includes a sleek built-in floating bed with plush bedding and nightstands on either side.

A lush border of ficus, palm, olive, and banana trees not only enhances the aesthetics but also provides privacy and a cooling effect across the resort. The property is enriched with a variety of drought-resistant desert plants that add vibrant splashes of color throughout.

Guests can easily explore Palm Springs by borrowing one of the cruiser bikes available at the front desk. From leisurely rides around Tahquitz River Estates to visiting Moorten Botanical Garden’s unique cactarium or venturing into Tahquitz Canyon for a glimpse of rock art and wildlife, the biking experience promises outdoor adventure.

Palm Springs’ downtown attractions are within biking distance, offering opportunities for refreshing iced tea, gelato, or shopping excursions for that perfect swimsuit.

As the sun sets, the hotel’s illuminated palm trees and the inviting firepit surrounded by chairs create a charming setting for guests to recount their desert escapades. Some opt to unwind in the Jacuzzi after a day of exploring Joshua Tree National Park.

For dining options, guests can stroll to Villa Royale for a delightful dining experience at the renowned Del Rey restaurant and bar or visit the Ace Hotel across the street for all-day dining at Kings Highway or drinks at Bar Cecil.

To maintain a serene environment, guests at Azure Sky must be 21 years or older.
