This sprawling Indian Wells resort offers one-stop relaxation with little need to venture far.
When it comes to full-service resorts, you cant do much better than this vast, Moorish-style mega-property that sprawls over a 34-acre desert-turned-parkland at the foot of the dramatic San Jacinto Mountains. Beyond the vast marble-inlaid lobby decked out with polished wood furnishings, the hundreds of spacious deluxe guest rooms are appointed in neoclassical style, with fireplaces and private balconies offering views of the mountains and grounds. Penthouse Suites and private Villas with butler service are available. Days are for playing tennis, golfing on two eighteen-hole championship courses and relaxing by the seven free-form pools (one for adults only), which have cabanas with ceiling fans, TVs and Internet access. Agua Serena Spa, featuring the Medical and Skin Spa, provides award-winning skin care treatments. With on-site Lantana Restaurant, Agave Sunset Lounge, Oasis Pool Bar, Roadrunner Café and Espresso Deli and Café, there is no need to venture out for breakfast, lunch, dinner or a star-lit evening highlighted by live entertainment and cocktails. If you choose to leave from your lounger, Old Town La Quinta and El Paseo, both upscale shopping and dining areas, are ten minutes away.
