A NEW DAY

Finally got the chance to try out my new camera in a beautiful setting, the Korakia Pensionne. Stay tuned for more stories from our weekend getaway. Such an inspired and magical setting, especially so in the unusually rain soaked Palm Springs.

KORAKIA NIGHTFALL

I really couldn't get enough of photographing this charming Bed & Breakfast. I had read about this Palm Springs oasis (inspired by a Moroccan villa) on several blogs, and finally got the chance to visit.

It's definitely a romantic destination (no kids allowed) that embraces the luxury of peace & quiet. The two pools are intimately situated among Mediterranean style courtyards. I wish we had splurged for a suite, but all of the rooms were quirky with a vintage Moroccan vibe.

The grounds, the gates, the Moroccan furniture and the details really transported us to another time and another place. Only 2 hours from LA, I felt like I was back in Morocco, lounging in a bohemian courtyard enjoying a retreat from hustle and bustle of the city. I wanted to capture the beauty of this desert oasis with my new camera, as truly every moment begged to be captured. So many gorgeous details, whether rain soaked or under the morning sun, were perfectly styled to create such a bohemian vibe.

Our first evening was especially pretty. The rain had just stopped, and the lanterns glowed in the lavendar twilight. It was the perfect time to sit around the courtyard bonfire and relax with friends in this magical setting.

MAGICAL KORAKIA

MOROCCAN BLISS

As Travel & Leisure wrote, "Korakia is an oasis within an Oasis that is Palm Springs."
Once you walk through the front gates at Korakia, you'll feel like you've traveled to a magical place...think Greece meets Spain meets Morocco. Korakia has a wide range of rooms to choose from and the breakfast is prepared to order every morning. This is the most charming, unique and relaxing little property in Southern California. Korakia provides the ultimate relaxation -- quiet pool side luxury in their intimate, vine-covered courtyards.
It truly is a Mediterranean style escape. The website promises, "Korakia Pensione offers a unique and relaxing getaway from day to day reality. Crafted after a Mediterranean-style pension, Korakia blends the silhouette of Tangier with a whisper of the Mediterranean. Lanterns and fire-pits flicker, illuminating the heated pools at night. Classic and foreign films glimmer on a nearby screen. A Moroccan daybed beckons for stargazing. Nightly turn-downs are done in the European tradition." Hope to be back soon!
