We were in need of a rest stop, travelling from Joshua Tree National Park to Los Angeles so a quick short stay in Palm Springs was a must.
The Sparrows Lodge is known as an architectural gem, originally built in the 1950s by MGM actor Don Castle and his wife Zetta. The lodge boasts that it was one of the original resort getaways for Hollywood stars to escape.
The Lodge is fitted with rustic yet sophisticated pieces that make up a statement of simplicity as soon as you enter the property. The pool and spa take centre stage with rooms wrapping around it. This layout isn’t a negative, however, as this is an adults-only resort and I personally didn’t find noise an issue.
The Lodge is designed for the traveller who wants simple quality. Each room is fitted with exposed beam ceilings, concrete floors and I’ve got to mention – the comfiest beds ever. The room has a rain shower, which was my favourite feature in the bedroom. This is the sort of hotel that invites you to spend time in the space and it gives off a vibe that will make you want too. The rooms do not include TVs.
Every morning we were greeted by the friendly staff in the Barn Kitchen where we had granola with fruit and juice for breakfast.
The Barn Kitchen also does a light lunch with sandwiches and nibbles until 6 pm. It was a 42°C (107°F) during the day when we were there and lazing around with a chicken sandwich and sangria on the communal table surrounded by the kitchen garden was a real treat. Life was bliss.
