We were married in Palm Springs and after touring Korakia years before I knew this was where I wanted to stay. We had the Naish House for two nights and it was absolutely magical. Korakia is actually a collection of small cottages and homes clustered around the main house, and they have kept the artist vibe from the days when... More

third or fourth visit here.... It is a wonderful compound Very low key, two pools, massage available and evening outdoor classic movies. If you are looking for a big spa, TVs, phones in your rooms, a business center or 24 hour room service this is not for you. They finally broke down and provided free wifi. Everybody leaves everyone alone... More

I had been wanting to stay at Korakia Pensione for years and finally a birthday wish came true! You walk through the authentic doorway to the lobby or side walkway and you are enveloped and captured by the ambiance and architecture. Literally transported to another place/another time. Stayed on the Moroccan side in the Adobe Room for two nights mid-week.... More

This place will cast a spell over you and take your breath away. This intimate and most romantic gem is nestled in Palm Springs, about 2 hour drive from Los Angeles. I stayed in the Moroccan Villa, Orchard House and I could not stop commenting on how lovely and perfect this place was. From an enchanting entrance that transports you... More

This is THE place to stay in Palm Springs! Such a beautiful place and beautiful grounds. We loved it. Especially the hot pool as it was freezing when we visited. Super schönes kleines B&B in Palm Springs. Sehr schöne Anlage, alles total liebevoll gemacht. Unbedingt buchen! Super Lage, zu Fuß in 5 Minuten auf der Hauptstraße!

I cannot comment on any room at Korakia, other than The Orchard House (and some of the others looked a little funky). Also, we do not usually stay at or like a Bed and Breakfast type place. Generally, the Korakia has a cool "old Palm Springs" vibe and is located in a great old town location. The Orchard House is... More

Magical morroccan vibe, warm saltwater pools, fire features, fountains, old movies under the stars, vibey character filled rooms (squeaky clean), breakfast in the courtyard under an orange tree, tea and gingersnaps in the afternoon, lovely and warm staff. All this and the mountain views......(oh and the easy walks to dinner). Yeah, I could live in this hotel. My fave ever.

This is our second time staying at Korakia and it is as magical as the first visit. We love the outdoor beds, the more than 200 candles they light every evening and the spaciousness and inventiveness of the rooms. We found everyone to be very pleasant indeed and the gardener was just as interesting as everyone else and informative about... More

My husband and I were excited to stay at what sounded like a delightful little hotel in Palm Springs. Unfortunately this place needs a lot of money to transform it from shabby and worn to charming. The setting and the grounds are lovely, but the rooms have upholstery with tears, peeling paint and mattresses that need replacing. Some staff were... More

Brilliant set and beautifully served. We had a great vacation there and enjoyed thoroughly every aspect of the place. It is a place that brings to the magic and mystical-ness of truly being in an aosis in a desert - every room is very uniquely decorated, almost always with a kitchen, 2 pools, fires by the heated pool, the movie...
