The Korakia Hotel has been on my must do/see list for quite sometime and I finally had a weekend free.  With hectic schedules, and busy lives, its important to balance and find time for yourself.  Palm Springs is just a short 2 hour drive, but feels thousands of miles away…the perfect weekend getaway.  So with our good friends, the photography duo Hudson & Serena Taylor joining us it was only appropriate to take a few photos whilst there…

The Korakia Pensione

Korakia Pensione offers a unique and relaxing getaway from day to day reality. Crafted after a Mediterranean-style pensione, Korakia blends the silhouette of Tangier with a whisper of the Mediterranean with a Moroccan courtyard.

This backdrop nestled in the hills of the Palm Springs desert…I mean can it get any better?

Blue Doors

When ever we find a stunning wall or amazing door its always a photo opp. Thankfully hudson was there…I literally felt like I was in Morocco again.

Off The Shoulder

I love a good off the shoulder shirt…it makes you feel sexy while being modest, can’t help but love the Korakia surroundings either.

Flora Everywhere

I mean, Bacci Ball? Could it get more nostalgic or Palm Springs? This hotel is full of pockets of fun and wonder and we took advantage of just that.
