The Amado: Fall in Love With Palm Springs' Newest Boutique Accommodation and Creative Space

PALM SPRINGS, CALIFORNIA--(Marketwired - March 25, 2014) - The Amado, Palm Spring's newest boutique accommodation, is thrilled to open its doors. Designed with the contemporary traveler in mind, this classic mid-century modern gem has been thoughtfully restored to respect its original architectural lines, while integrating all the modern details and amenities even the most discerning traveler will enjoy.

This desert chic sanctuary boasts five luxury suites nestled within a private courtyard with a heated pool, mature citrus trees and ample lounging space. With its stunning mountain views, the boutique accommodation features six bedrooms and rents either as individual one and two bedroom suites or as a single property, hosting upwards of 12 people at a time for groups and events.

Located just minutes from downtown Palm Springs, The Amado, which translates to 'beloved' in Spanish, truly is a labor of love for owner Jaime Kowal. An accomplished international photographer and entrepreneur, Kowal visited Palm Springs on holiday last year and fell in love with the sunshine, architecture and progressive community.

"It's inspiring to be part of this community of creatives that is building new energy in Palm Springs," said Kowal. "I was so excited by the opportunity to work with and restore this iconic architecture. Designing The Amado was an extension of my photographic interests - a perfect way to combine my love of interiors, design, and travel. Now that my doors are open, it's really fun to see guests arrive and enjoy it."

Kowal's interest in the psychology of space is apparent in the airy, low-key glam appeal of the Amado. A sanctuary where design and comfort meet, this mid-century modern retreat in the heart of central Palm Springs is the perfect getaway.
