Why it’s worth traveling for… The first designer boutique hotel in the exclusive Indian Wells, California community, Sands Hotel & Spa offers guests an exotic, luxurious, and personalized take on hospitality. Live in the lap of luxury surrounded by custom textiles, bespoke furniture, and vibrant colors all chosen by famed interior designer Martyn Lawrence Bullard.

Why you’ll never want to leave…

  • The signature Spa at Sands offers three intimate treatment rooms to soothe and calm your body and soul. All products contain naturally sourced ingredients from Morocco that contain detoxifying minerals and botanicals to promote health, vibrancy, and hydration.
  • An Instagrammers paradise, step inside a vintage blush dream at The Pink Cabana. Enjoy fresh Mediterranean cuisine by award-winning Chef Jason Niederkorn in a lively atmosphere modeled after Palm Springs’ great Tennis and Racquet Clubs of the ’50s and ’60s.

But if you do… Take a public art tour and admire the stunning and notable works found throughout Greater Palm Springs. Stroll through the Coachella Valley Preserve and enjoy desert oasis where the North American and Pacific tectonic plates meet. If inside activities are more your thing (or you’re looking for a way to beat the heat), the Palm Springs Art Museum is a must!
