NATIONAL REPORT—From historic preservations, rebrandings to boutique openings, hotel markets are seeing some action in Oregon and California.
Now Open: Dive Palm Springs
Petite boutique resort Dive has opened, bringing the elegance and grace of 1960s French Riviera to the heart of Palm Springs, CA. The 11-key property offers contemporary guestrooms to restored original Libott swimming pool and peaceful grounds.
The founders of Dive, Dale Fox and Abdi Manavi, were on a mission to bring a unique aesthetic and whimsical concept to the burgeoning Palm Springs scene. Dale worked closely with California-based designer Vanessa Schreiber on the design concept for Dive. The team spent eight weeks completely reimagining the original 1950s property and stepped into their own time capsule to create a design concept that transports guests back to the casual elegance of St. Tropez in the 60s. The name of the property was inspired by the pool and Lulu, Dive’s eight-ft. diving girl neon work of art dating back to 1954.
