Places to Stay

o    Where: Palm Springs
o    Why it’s hot: An oasis within an oasis, Korakia is a unique and romantic retreat with Moroccan and Mediterranean vibes. Complimentary bicycles, courtyards, flickering fire pits, and classic and foreign films screened when the sun goes down. No wonder Forbes named it one of the sexiest hotels in America.
