While vacationing in Palm Springs in 2010, Reid was looking for a second home in Palm Springs, but instead, found the property for sale. “My background in hotel management at Whistler-Blackcomb helped me see the gap in the market for an upscale experience totally unique in Palm Springs,” says Reid. The project to create a luxury hotel began with a total remodel including extensive use of travertine, custom wood work and many other amenities typically found in the finest resorts.
The hotel space has open common areas including an outdoor kitchen and BBQ that also allow for group events. As part of the complimentary cocktail hour, Pura Vida guests can enjoy premium wines, spirits and beverages as part of their stay. With eight rooms, a group of friends can rent the entire resort out to have the intimacy of a private home and the luxury feel of a full service hotel. The venue may also be rented for special events and corporate functions.
To celebrate the first full year in business by offering Summer Specials through August, stay two nights and get a third free. Full details of the offer are online at PuraVidaPS.com.
