Hotel developer Roger Bloss has revealed a new partnership with Las Vegas-based MJ Holdings that is expected to yield the first of eight cannabis-based health and wellness hotels. Bloss, who serves as president and CEO of MJ subsidiary Alternative Hospitality, announced that the first 150-room property is scheduled to break ground later this year in Desert Hot Springs, California. The Coachill Inn Resort will be crafted by architect David Wallace, who will outfit the lodging concept with amenities such as an amphitheater to host onsite entertainment and a lazy river that will tap into the region’s natural hot springs.
“The Coachill Inn Resort will attract travelers who are looking for an experience and the opportunity to safely experiment,” Bloss says. “People from all over the world come to the Coachella Valley for business, tourism and the famed Coachella and Stagecoach music festivals. And now they can learn about the health and wellness benefits of hemp, CBD, and cannabis.”
Three additional California outposts are in the pipeline along with three in Las Vegas and two in Michigan and Oklahoma.
