Oxygen Hospitality to Launch Multi-Million-Dollar Renovation and Rebranding Ivy Palm Resort in Downtown Palm Springs, California

USA, Palm Springs, California. April 01, 2019

Ivy Palm Resort today unveiled plans for a transformational two-phase renovation updating guest rooms, lobby, outdoor pool area and restaurant into a modern, upscale hotel inspired by the resort's heritage in downtown Palm Springs.

The renovation follows the change in hotel ownership, sold in May 2018 to owner-operator hospitality management company, Oxygen Hospitality. In addition to physical asset renovations, Oxygen Hospitality, which owns and operates a portfolio of branded and independent hotels, will rebrand the Ivy Palm Resort with a new hotel name, identity and amenities.

Phase One of the renovation -- set to begin June 2019 with an anticipated fall 2019 completion -- will tackle all 100 guest rooms and suites, two outdoor pools and public spaces, redesign of the main entrance and outside bar. Phase Two of the renovation, targeted for completion in 2020, will bring a new restaurant concept and additional rooms. The hotel will remain open during renovations and sectioned off to minimize disruption to guests at the property.

"The Ivy Palm Resort is a jewel property in the beautiful desert of Palm Springs," said Yaron Ashkenazi, chief executive officer of Oxygen Hospitality. "Our new vision for this hotel - inside and outside - embraces the city's rich local history of its people, architecture and design. Once repositioning is completed, the hotel will have a new name, a new look, instill the warmth of American hospitality and celebrate local influences for a first-class guest experience."

The hotels' redesign is inspired by this iconic city's reputation for some of the country's best mid-twentieth century modernism architecture. Modernism arrived in the 1930s, when actor Gary Cooper commissioned a home in Palm Springs and other actors followed suit. This history inspires the hotel's inviting redesign, which includes angular, artistic with colorful motif for the outside pool area ranging from royal blues, white and yellow. Guest room design offers a palette of clean, neutral white and cream colors -- paired with shades of aqua and complemented with sleek, rich modern wood furnishings for a desert climate. Complete guest room renovation includes bathroom remodel, all-new furnishings, beds, window treatments, artwork and technology.

Built in 1982, the four building, two-story hotel sits on approx. three lush acres situated conveniently within steps of downtown for day and nightlife experiences and nearest to the widely popular Palm Springs Aerial Tramway. The property boasts one of the largest hotel pool areas in Palm Springs and spectacular mountain views.

Hotel Spa: Back to Nature

As the Wellness Industry continues to expand, hotel spas are also diversifying, placing a greater emphasis on overall well-being. For some spas, this means providing clients with all-inclusive packages that include fitness classes, healthy dining, and offsite leisure activities, in addition to their core services. For example, spas near ski resorts are offering packages that include lift passes, pre-ski yoga sessions, after-ski dinners and spa treatments. Other spas are offering packages that include massages, saunas, mineral baths, hot springs, and recreational hiking and snowmobile activities. These kinds of spa offerings are also part of a "Back to Nature" movement that encourages guests to get out and experience the healing qualities of nature. One such therapy is the Japanese practice known as "forest bathing" which has become popular with spas that are near wooded areas. This practice relies on the ancient power of a forest for promoting a sense of health and well-being. Other spas are incorporating precious metals and stones into their health and beauty treatments - such as silver, gold, pearls and amber. Silver ion baths relax the body and mind, reduce fatigue, and restore energy balance. Gold keeps skin radiant and can even treat various skin diseases and infections, due to its antibacterial qualities. Amber is used to calm the nervous system and to relieve stress. Other natural products and therapies that are increasingly in demand include sound therapy, cryotherapy, infra-red saunas, and even CBD oil, which is being used in massages, facials and foot scrubs, providing a new form of stress relief. The July issue of the Hotel Business Review will document these trends and other new developments, and report on how some hotel spas are integrating them into their operations.
