The Ultimate Coachella 2012 Experience

Escape reality and get immersed in a lyrical wonderland with Riviera Palm Springs’ Music Lovers’ Retreat at the 13th Annual Coachella Music Festival, April 13-15 and April 20-22.

The resort that catered to the likes of Frank Sinatra and the Rat Pack rings Old Hollywood glamour, creating a “remix” of 60s influences with oversized crystal chandeliers and vibrant shag rugs to Andy Warhol pop art and an eclectic blend of retro furnishing. Outside, marvel at hundreds of towering palms, sparkling pools, private cabanas and intimate poolside fire pits.

After watching and listening to killer Coachella headliners such as The Black Keys, Radiohead, Dr. Dre and Snoop Dogg, head back to posh quarters loaded with rockstar amenities that include:

  • “Party with a View” suite accommodations
  • With so many acts to see, the “At Your Door” shuttle service allows festival goers the best views of the stage in an efficient manner.
  • Fully-stocked Rockstar mini bar
  • Hydration Welcome Amenity
  • Nightly late-night munchie platters and Gatorade refuel you for the next day of festivities.
  • Daily recovery breakfast from the resort’s Circa 59. Relax with a poolside cocktail from Bikini Bar, or retreat from the sun at Sidebar.

Live entertainment continues beyond the festival with the hottest poolside DJs all afternoon.

Rates start at $650/night.
