Gorgeously manicured but not overly fussy. Seclusion, naturally. That’s our new-fashioned desert hideaway tucked into the design scene of old downtown. At the iconic Avalon Hotel & Bungalows Palm Springs, the eclectic range of 67 Spanish-style lodgings, including romantic studios and 13 private villas follow in storied footsteps with deep residential comforts and 3 pools to do your thing. Flit away the afternoon in a cabana, at the spa, by the fireplace. It’s magical at all hours. All you have to do is stay.
