Indian Wells and the Santa Rosa range are the backdrop for this 11-acre Mediterranean-inspired resort. Tiles coat the rooftops of the villas, which are laced in hot pink and red bougainvillea, while palm trees run along the edge of the neighboring golf course and pool like a line of tropical exclamation points. At the center of the resort is the Well Spa, which is surrounded by lush herb and citrus gardens. The building, with its simple stone and wood construction, looks as if it were dropped here straight from Tuscany.
Bed & Bath
Woven amid olive trees and lush gardens, the 215 guestrooms, suites and villas have Venetian-style terraces and patios looking out over the grounds, golf course and mountains. Earth tones, with rich chocolates and warm honey accents inspired by the desert make for a relaxing setting. Big marble bathrooms have double vanities and are stocked with Destination Earth and Gilchrist & Soames products.
It’s all about health at this sun-kissed wellness retreat. The spa offers a wide array of treatments like the Pelle D’Oro (Skin of Gold) — an exfoliation with grape seeds and sun-kissed olive oil. The Mediterranean fare served at Grove Artisan Kitchen focuses on seasonal, local ingredients that are at once indulgent and tasty. French doors open onto a dining courtyard with a gurgling stone fountain. To work off the calories, there’s yoga, morning walks through the 11 acres of olive trees and rose gardens, or hydro yo chi, an integration of yoga and tai chi practiced in the warm spa pool.
How to Get There
I was here for a business trip recently. The conference room was great. The staff were amazing - very friendly and very good service (valet, check-in, conference staff, and check-out staff were all great)! The only issue we had was with a couple of moths in our room, which was the main reason for some of the average review answers below.
Quality of service is not up to par, not accommodating and honestly they have the attitude that they could careless. Used to stay here all the time, but will not be back. A $35 resort fee when kids are in the adult pool with staff right there, broken curtain rod laying in our bed when we walked in, no late check out, the food is overpriced and not very good
Nice property, great pool, attentive staff and a beautiful ground floor room with a patio made this a fun weekend with friends in August. We've stayed here before and were happy to return. The grounds are beautifully maintained adding to the desert ambiance. The main pool was busy but fun when we arrived Friday afternoon. The Hideaway pool was tranquil for a few hours Saturday, then became quite crowded with multiple families with kids enjoying the pool.
As a suggestion, if the Hideaway pool is supposed to be a more relaxed alternative to the main/party pool, perhaps a sign stating "Adults Only" can be added? (not a big deal as I love kids but not sure what experience the property management is trying to provide for its guests).
Overall, we were very pleased with the resort, thankful for a great deal from Travel Zoo, and will certainly return (even in August-we lucked out as it only hit 105!).
