We’re in the mood for a really good bash – copious cool drinks, non-stop dancing and a groovy poolside stay. Which is why we’re all about California dreamin’ right now and the retro-chic Viceroy Palm Springs. Let’s get this party started…

Viceroy Palm Springs bedroom | Mr & Mrs Smith hotelsWhy this week? Oh, we don’t mean just any old soirée, either. But the Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival, the all out riot of indie, hip hop, rock and electronic music kicks off next weekend. Located just 30 minutes from the venue, the Viceroy Palm Springs is a glam home base during this two weekend event. Whether you’re festival-bound or not, right now you can spend more time lounging poolside with a special offer of 20 per cent off four nights or more.

Our favourite bits… Set at the foot of the San Jacinto mountains and surrounded by fragrant fruit trees and manicured gardens, this desert scene doesn’t get much better. Bright white neutral rooms are accented with black gingham and kitted out with yellow upholstery and mirrored bureaus. The lovely fitness and spa facilities round out the healthy and wealthy atmosphere of this bastion of southern California style. And if you weren’t already feeling pampered enough, the service which somehow manages to be well-groomed and relaxed; luxurious and low-key; and attentive and unobtrusive.

Viceroy Palm Springs restaurant | Mr & Mrs Smith hotelsMr & Mrs Smith say… ‘The Viceroy is all about the thoughtful touches: totes and shoes were provided in our room to take to the pool; trays of healthy drinks were left out for us to help ourselves to; and the weekend brought with it all-day gourmet barbecues by the pool (and we’re not just talking paltry beef patties and a few chewy chicken wings – this was a bountiful bonanza of lobster, shrimp and filet mignon). There are bicycles to borrow free of charge, which come with tiny mobiles set to speed-dial concierge, spa or restaurant – perfect for when you simply can’t pedal a metre further without a snack, or need a lift after hitting the boutiques in Palm Springs Village. In high summer, one of the Jacuzzis is chilled to create an ice-cool plunge pool for instant refreshment, and on balmy moonlit nights, you can have a sensual aromatherapy massage under the stars, or recline on a pillow-and blanket-strewn lawn to settle down to a classic noir film. Bliss. ’ Read the full Viceroy Palm Springs Mr & Mrs Smith review…
