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.

My partner and myself just spent a fabulous week at Pura Vita, we were so impressed with the service not to mention the high end amenities, beautiful lines and all Moulton Brown products, very fine selection for a healthy continental breakfast. 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

We have stayed at Pura Vida before and last weekend held an event there. There are 8 rooms, three larger than the others but all larger than almost any other hotel we've visited in Warm Sands. The rooms are at least as nice, in fixtures, finishes and amenities, as rooms we've had at the Ritz Carlton down the road in... More

WOW! Thank you so much for your great review and we are humbled being put on scale with the Ritz Carlton. I have designed and furnished the resort in a luxury style where I would want to stay and we do try and keep our rates reasonable. Our afternoon cocktail hour is one of our favourite times as it gives... More

It was our first trip to Palm Springs and we were torn between two resorts based on reviews and the websites...and were thrilled with our choice, Pura Vida. We went and visited the other resort once we arrived and it confirmed we made the right choice. The hotel is beautiful, spotless, contemporary with spectacular views from the pool, and the... More
