Discover hotels and villas with heated pools in Palm Springs, United States

The Greater Palm Springs area's endless supply of sunshine made it a winter playground for the rich and famous in the Fifties, when life was lived with a putter in one hand and a martini in the other; the exploits of its former Rat Pack residents have passed into legend.The world-apart atmosphere of Palm Springs proper and its neighbouring desert cities is accentuated by their fabulous collection of mid-century Modernist architecture – in the style’s '50s heyday, even the most humdrum building merited a futuristic fin or space-age spoiler, to help propel it still further into the future. In recent years (thanks largely to the efforts of former Palm Springs mayor Sonny Bono), the cities have recaptured their swing – and not just on the golf course.
