Years ago when we were in Palm Springs (which was part of our Californian road trip) we stayed in a small hotel run by a friendly gay couple with a gambling problem. In the garden there were lots of plastic pink flamingos and other bright colored Paraphernalia. Now there a lots of stylish places in Palm Springs such as Korakia Pensione, a stunning resort and spa nestled next to the mountains in the Palm Springs desert. The hotel, which was recently named one of the “Sexiest Hotels in America by Forbes Traveler, is crafted after a Mediterranean-style pensione. It blends the silhouette of Tangier with a whisper of the Mediterranean.
