Korakia is a welcome change from the overloadia of mid-century fabulousness that permeates Palm Springs. A boutique hotel just a few blocks from the downtown strip of Palm Springs, it’s a Moroccan inspired retreat spread out over two villas built in the 20’s.
The pensione is steeped in history, and served as a runaway home for the Scottish painter Gordon Coutts, and a hideaway for his celeby friends. Having lived in Tangier, he decided to recreate a home that was reminiscent of North Africa. That he achieved!
The rooms are dark and cool (you’ll be glad for that in the desert heat), each one so different from the others. Some have fantastic stone tubs, the suites have kitchenettes, all are quite romantic.
The grounds are spread out over an acre and a half.
There are two swimming pools, one by each villa.
Breakfast is served in the morning in the courtyard, and in the evening, you can see movies screened outside.
Adult-friendly, no children under 13 are allowed.

I’ve died and gone to design heaven.
Architect Bart Prince dreamt up a fantastical house in Columbus, Ohio, distinguished by dynamic, flowing spaces. The owner describes the home as a place for big kids with, for instance, secret passageways hidden within the masonry walls. A 75-foot-long serpentine pool, lined with mirror-and-glass mosaics, winds its way along the lower level of the house. “The owner wanted a lap pool running through a tropical garden, with palm trees and bananas and views of the sky,” the architect says. “The living spaces are arranged around that.”
This looks vaguely Bosmeri to me.
