I’m currently sitting in the Palm Springs airport waiting for my flight back to New York City after enjoying an amazing weekend at the Riviera Resort & Spa. This was my first time in the desert, and I was immediately impressed by the breathtaking landscape, not to mention the gorgeous weather. After spending my days hiking in the San Jacinto mountains, eating indulgent meals, and enjoying time in a private cabana at the pool, I was fortunate enough to have the opportunity to take my relaxation one step further at the spa. I experienced several amazing treatments, but the 80-minute signature Balinese massage was hands-down my favorite. After a wonderful weekend, I am headed back to the hustle and bustle of Manhattan fully rejuvenated and ready to plan my next trip to this decidedly decadent desert paradise.
