LUMIRA TRAVELS | PALM SPRINGS

Almira Armstrong

As much as we love spontaneity at Atelier Lumira, sometimes we can’t help but plan ahead and nothing feels better than planning for a getaway! Our fabulous February destination is none other than the desert hotspot, Palm Springs. With its iconic mid-century modern architecture, palm trees and it fair share of lavish hotels and spas, Palm Springs sits timelessly suspended in its unrelenting heat, teetering between mastering classic elegance and overindulgence absolutely effortlessly. For this kitschy desert city, we’re prepared to throw it back to the old glamour of Hollywood’s golden age.
 
RELAX&STAY
Ace Hotel
Stylish, eccentric and laid-back, Ace Hotel is an exciting boutique resort that caters for all your holiday needs. With poolside music gigs and Saturday morning yoga sessions, Ace Hotel has got you covered all week long.
 
The Parker Palm Springs
The Parker Palm Springs has sometimes been referred to as the playground for A-list celebrities and it owes much of its modern and chic decadence to Jonathan Adler who gave the Parker its makeover in 2009. With inspiration from all over the world, Adler carefully furnished The Parker using luxurious and eclectic pieces that constitutes an interior design lovers haven.
 
L’Horizon
Sometimes a girl needs to be spoilt and the L’Horizon is the very place for it. Restored back to the former glory of its early days in the 50s by Steve Hermann, L’Horizon pays homage to the decadence that was once so characteristics of Palm Springs.
 
EAT&DRINK
King’s Highway
Probably casual dining at its finest, the ambience of King’s Highway is very much all about creating an authentic diner experience with a menu inspired by the free spirit of Palm Spring’s new Bohemia. Serving breakfast, lunch and dinner till late, with the added bonus of fresh, locally sourced ingredients, it’s definitely a place to go back to. Oh and did we forget to add that King’s Highway is also conveniently located at The Ace Hotel?
 
Cheeky’s
If you’re an avid fan of the rising phenomenon that is brunch, then Cheeky’s is the place to go to satisfy those cravings. We advise you to get there early because the long waits are testament to how delicious their food is but if you don’t manage to snag a seat straight away, the wait is definitely worth it.
 
Mister Parker’s
Located at The Parker Hotel, Mister Paul’s serves delicious and elegant French-American cuisine. We love the way the bistro has been fitted with dark hues and deep, luxurious finishes of leather and velvet, reminiscent of a gentleman’s club.
 
SHOP&PLAY
Palm Canyon Drive
Dubbed as a shopper’s paradise, one can expect to find just about anything. Art-deco shops, beautiful home ware stores and vintage fashion boutiques all share the same street with pulsing bars and buzzing restaurant scenes.
 
Palm Springs Aerial Tramway
Take a moment out of your day to enjoy the feeling of being suspended in the warm, sunny haze of everything Palm Springs has to offer – its spectacular panoramic mountain views, gorgeous sunsets and vast passages of lush greenery. Our heads are already high in the skies with this one.
 
See you in February!
