Margaritaville Resort Palm Springs coming to the desert in Fall 2020

Following a complete transformation, Riviera Palms Springs will emerge as Margaritaville Resort Palm Springs, transporting guests into a vacation state of mind.

PALM SPRINGS, CA. – Global lifestyle and hospitality brand, Margaritaville, and Davidson Hotels & Resorts announced the transformation and upcoming opening of Margaritaville Resort Palm Springs. Located in the heart of the Uptown Design District, a historic playground for old-and-new Hollywood’s elite, the resort is expected to open in fall 2020.

“We are thrilled to bring the Margaritaville lifestyle to Palm Springs as we open our first resort on the west coast,” shared Tamara Baldanza-Dekker, Chief Marketing Officer, Margaritaville. “Margaritaville Resort Palm Springs will provide the ultimate island oasis in the desert for travelers seeking a much-needed escape.”

Following a renovation and conversion of the pre-existing property, Riviera Palm Springs, just minutes from downtown Palm Springs, the resort will include 398-rooms, multiple Margaritaville-inspired dining options with indoor and outdoor seating,  a St. Somewhere Spa, the city’s largest resort spa, all-new family-oriented programming, and more than 40,000 square feet of combined wedding, meeting, and event space.  

Fully reimagined by McBride Design to embody the brand’s fun and escapism, Margaritaville Resort Palm Springs will combine the relaxed, mid-century Palm Springs aesthetic with Margaritaville’s casual-luxe island feel. Freshly reinvented spacious guest rooms and suites will offer a private retreat for travelers to unwind with panoramic views of Palm Springs mountains and the resort grounds from private terraces and comfortable patios. Incorporating modern design touches with natural tropical tones, each room will offer stand-out amenities and a unique in-room dining menu featuring a sampling of dishes from each dining concept on property.

Nestled within a picturesque 16-acres, with sweeping views of the San Jacinto Mountains, Margaritaville Resort Palm Springs will feature relaxing outdoor experiences, including two pools and several tiki-hut inspired cabanas. While enjoying live music and entertainment, guests can indulge in family-friendly menus offering classic favorites with contemporary twists or simply sit back and enjoy a refreshing frozen drink.

“Palm Springs is an energetic city with its own distinct style, making it a great fit for the Margaritaville brand,” said Matt Huss, General Manager, Margaritaville Resort Palm Springs. “Whether guests are here to enjoy the city’s arts and culture, attend one of the many annual events such as Coachella or Modernism Week, or simply to enjoy the more than 350 days of sunshine per year that Palm Springs offers, Margaritaville Resort Palm Springs will offer something for everyone: a dynamic place to gather, celebrate, meet or relax.”

The property will continue to be managed by award-winning hospitality management company, Davidson Hotels & Resorts, following the completion of the renovation and rebranding effort.

Margaritaville’s portfolio of lodging concepts continues to expand on the West Coast; with two properties under brand conversion and development in San Diego, CA, including the Margaritaville Hotel San Diego Gaslamp Quarter to replace Hotel Solamar and Margaritaville Island Resort San Diego, replacing Paradise Point Resort & Spa. Both will be managed and operated by Davidson Hotels & Resorts, with openings slated for 2021.
