The rooftop pool and recreation deck that the Plaza opened in July is getting more attention as the weather heats up.
The resort added $25,000 of upgraded furnishings, including cocktail side tables next to lounge chairs, new wet deck lounge chairs and more dining tables, chairs and umbrellas. All six day beds were re-upholstered with a vibrant green fabric.
A $300,000 renovation to five suites with access to the pool deck amplifies the pool’s vintage Palms Springs feel with décor that mixes contemporary and mid-century furnishings. The suites incorporate warm wood tones and mixed metals with bold colors and graphics.
The suites also feature custom cabinetry, new floorings, custom lighting fixtures and casual, relaxing furnishings with luxurious touches throughout. Bathrooms were upgraded with custom vanities, quartz counters and a blend of dimensional and glass mosaic tiles. Starting at $200 per night, the suites can be booked beginning at the end of May.
Summer events kicks off at 7 p.m. Saturday, May 20, with a luau beach party featuring live entertainment and authentic Hawaiian food and drinks. Tickets are $40.
From 8 p.m. to 1 a.m. Saturday nights beginning May 6, the Plaza will host “Plaza Pool Nights,” a free night swim party with a DJ and drink and food specials.
To celebrate the Fourth of July and one-year anniversary of the Pool at the Plaza, the property will again host a special rooftop party and live fireworks show.
