There are 3 things I love in life: staycations, road trips and the desert. The bf and I took a road trip to Palm Springs for a quick Valentine’s Day staycation over the weekend. Our first stop was at the Desert Hills Premium Outlets. They have a Gucci and Saint Laurent store. Very premium. Unfortunately, I didn’t find anything, but I recommend making a stop at these outlets if you’re ever making the trip out to Palm Springs!
We stayed at the Sands Hotel and Spa! I have been wanting to stay at this little boutique hotel FOREVER. It’s seriously so Instagram worthy. Everything is pink and green themed. The Beverly Hills Hotel meets desert vibes. The room had a fully stocked bar, with beautiful gold accents. I’m honestly not over the pineapple shaped ice holder! The black and white tile shower was definitely one of my favorite parts of the room.
We had dinner at the Pink Cabana where we met another really cool couple, and the bartender whipped up the most premium of drinks–I had two–baaaack to back. For dinner I got the streak frites. SO GOOD. I’ve honestly never felt so full in my life.
If you stay here, I’d recommend checking out the spa (it’s so cool). And the pool area has the cutest little cabanas. Another thing that I love about the Sands Hotel is the fact that it’s dog friendly! This staycation was the perfect little getaway for Valentine’s day weekend.
