(760) 325-1441 Ext 4
Chi Chi is not your typical hotel restaurant. During the day, it’s made for free flowing indoor outdoor meals, spa-side snacking, and casual noshing around our multiple pools. As the sun sets, our relaxed gathering place for food and fun transforms into a candlelit fine dining experience, a perfect poolside venue for enjoying hand crafted cocktails, delicious California wines and world-class cuisine that pairs wonderfully with the inspired décor and desert sky overhead.
Saturday and Sunday
In 1999, we transformed a forgotten architectural gem on a quiet corner of Beverly Hills into an exciting boutique hotel we called Avalon. Our very first property sparked two decades in hospitality and design, including our sister resort in the magical desert of Palm Springs.
Avalon flows with what we adore about creating, running, and staying in small luxury hotels. Both share fresh perspectives on mid-century revival and modern design. Both are comfortable with the paradox of friendly glamour…of a hideaway right here and now.
