If  you are seeking a retreat to cool off, indulge in fine food and wine, or take advantage of a spa day…look no further than The Colony Palms Hotel, Palm Springs.  This swank, four star boutique hotel is a unique hideaway reminiscent of Hollywood’s Golden area where you can loose yourself and get away from it all.


The Colony Palms has 56 guest rooms and suites and stunning mountain views.

Enter into this Spanish Colonial Styled property and you will delight in its simple, elegant décor and modern amenities to entertain and pamper Palm Springs style.

Stylish guests can sip a cool beverage poolside or slip into a cabana to relax or read poolside. There are also many seating nooks located in lush courtyard garden where you can catch up on the glossies or take a cup of tea.

The Colony Palms has 56 guest rooms and suites, stunning mountain views, and a dedicated staff ready to make your stay welcome.

Should you wish for a shopping excursion, just hop on their selection of “town-bicycles” to explore the areas finest in art galleries, mid-century mod stores, café’s, and chic shoppes.

The Moroccan Spa is a quaint haven offering a variety of spa services including massage, body, and skin treatments to rejuvenate, refresh, and replenish.  There is a Moroccan design influence in décor, sights, and sounds drawing you into its quiet, low-key ambiance.

Special monthly wine and food pairings invite interested parties to partake in a sumptuous dining experience.  The Chef ‘s Table Series happens once a month with the last one featuring Chef Luke Reyes and Bar Manager Avery Underhill of Butchers & Barbers in LA.

Popcorn w/ Roasted Garlic, Thyme and Rosemary – nom nom!

Popcorn w/Thyme and Garlic Oil : 

1/2 cup popcorn kernels
1/2 cup canola oil
1 bunch thyme, picked and chopped
3 tbs granulated sugar
3 tbs kosher salt
2 sprigs Rosemary, picked and fried
1/2 cup roasted garlic oil (recipe below)

1. Place 1 cup oil in sauce pot with 8 cloves of garlic over light heat. Slowly cook until garlic is caramelized, never frying, so that oil doesn’t become acrid. Allow to cool and strain. Set aside.

2. Place popcorn kernels and popcorn into large sauce pot and cover. Turn flame to high, and shake pan continuously to ensure popcorn doesn’t burn or stick to pan. Listen to the pan as the kernels pop. When you no longer hear popping, remove from heat and pour into a bowl.

3. While popcorn is still hot, pour garlic oil into bowl with popcorn and toss to coat. Season with remaining ingredients and enjoy.
