Hope indeed springs eternal at this modernist desert oasis that overlooks the entire Coachella Valley. The brightly-colored adobe is comprised of just ten rooms that circle around a courtyard of curious cacti gardens and three mineral pools that range from 87-105 degrees Fahrenheit all year long.
The staff affirms there's no affiliation, but walking through Hotel Zoso you'll swear you're at a Z Gallerie resort--chocolate-colored furniture, coffee-hued walls and whimsically designed crimson and black lacquer accents work their way through the sleek spaces of the four-acre property.
Quirky, irreverant and utterly luxurious, this historic property is where head concierge John will make you feel like a rock star, even if you're not. The landscaped gardens are impeccable, the feathertop beds are divine, and the saline pools don't leave you with the nasty smell of chlorine.
