I just spent a fantastic weekend here. It is truly sublime. The design and decor is perfect for the desert. The standards for cleanliness and hospitality rival any Ritz Carlton. I had the Pura Vida Suite because of the added privacy and it was perfect for what I wanted. I cannot recommend this place enough! I booked my May trip... More

I've stayed at many resorts in Palm Springs and Pura Vida far surpasses others. Each suite is unique and elegantly designed with indoor spa, spacious rooms, beautiful pieces of art and private clothing-optional patio space. Service is exceptional, polite, always available but not intrusive. The pool and common areas are also beautiful, welcoming, and inviting. Breakfast was great, indoor, outdoor... More

After checking into the Ace and realizing that it wasn't where we wanted to spend our holiday weekend, we did a quick search of other options in the area, and, fortunately for us, Pura Vida Palm Springs had one room available. I have stayed at and/or visited several properties in Palm Springs (gay, straight and private homes), and Pura Vida,... More

As the Warm Sands area has a variety of hotels, we have positioned ourselves at the top end as a true all inclusive luxury resort, an escape from some of the more active... More

One of the best places we ever stayed in our many years visiting Palm Springs. The staff was attentive and the accommodations were excellent. Very spacious outdoor living areas with comfortable couches and mountain views.

The rooms were so clean and well appointed. The place was extremely well kept and Steve and Aaron were... More

I have been traveling to Palm Springs for almost 15 years and have rented vacation homes and stayed in several resorts over that time. Pura Vida is recently remodeled with first class design and high end fixtures. The rooms are the large, luxurious and immaculately clean. The common areas are flawless and accommodating to guest needs with ample chaise lounges,... More

My husband and I booked this place and stayed for a week. The service was 5 star with amazing breakfast everyday, and free happy hour in the evenings. The property was amazing clean and everything was perfect. The environment was quiet and very friendly. I felt like we were staying at a personal resort for just the two of us.... More

My partner and I were recently at Pura Vida for an extended stay while we completed the remodel of our desert home. A one week stay stretched into multiple weeks, so we really got a chance to see the hotel from many different angles. As with our previous stays at Pura Vida, the staff and owners were friendly and accommodating... More

I was so nervous about booking a room in such a small resort (only 8 rooms), but I needn't have been. The resort was immaculately clean, and our king room was large and comfortable. I fell in love with the bathroom, which had two sinks and an amazing walk-in shower with two shower heads! The continental breakfast was terrific, and... More

We’re glad you got over your trepidation and decided to stay with us. The smaller size seems more appealing for guests to interact and chat with each other & at the same time allows us to talk with each of our guests. Am glad you like the bathrooms & showers, it was fun designing them and that you also took... More
