About Renaissance Indian Wells Resort & Spa

The Coachella Valley has long been recognized for its natural beauty, the healing powers of its hot springs, and the revitalizing air of spiritual energy. Within this valley lies one of the hidden gems of the California desert, Spa Esmeralda at the Renaissance Indian Wells Resort & Spa. Nestled along the foothills of the spectacular Santa Rosa Mountains in the desert enclave of Indian Wells, Spa Esmeralda is designed to offer an experience of relaxation and renewal to revive body and soul.

Serene earth tones with Zen-like lighting, along with lush, peaceful gardens and the soothing sounds of trickling water immediately put all into a spa state-of-mind. Tranquil features include a Jacuzzi with waterfall shower and inviting lounge areas.

The spa’s diverse selection of therapies restores, rejuvenates, and refreshes guests during their stay. Particular favorites include the Thaiyurveda™ Herbal Massage, Desert Waters Body Treatment, Vitamin C Facial, and Jadience Compression Wrap.

Menus of Services / Classes

The 13,000-square-foot Spa Esmeralda encompasses both indoor treatment rooms and outdoor cabanas. Just past the tranquil, Zen-inspired lobby, a corridor leads to the spa garden, where cascading waterfalls and tropical flora surround personal treatment areas. Precious stones are used as both inspiration and decoration throughout the facility, most notably in the couple's room, whose design incorporates genuine mother-of-pearl. Bamboo and organic wood accents provide soothing contrast.

The menu of services includes desert-inspired, luxurious therapies for the face and body. Rehydrating body treatments are designed to counteract the effects of the desert sun such as the signature Thaiyurveda Herbal Massage, which involves the application of therapeutic herbal compresses in conjunction with acupressure massage.

Male spa guests enjoy a men-only lounge with comfy wooden chaises, in addition to a special menu of treatments.

Customer Reviews for Renaissance Indian Wells Resort & Spa (2)

July 15, 2010
Lovely Boutique Style in Resort Setting
When traveling to the Palm Desert area you have many choices for a day at the spa but this is one to look in to. The facilities are pristine, private, personable, reasonably priced, carry the Marriott stamp and the services are top shelf. The workout center is not conveniently located to the spa area but if you are not looking to combine the activities it just doesn't matter. I personally enjoy the one on one feel of the place and the staff is delightfully helpful and courteous to a fault. We go here regularly since the JW has just got to large and commercial for our tastes.

Lovely Experience
I have tried numerous spas in the area but keep returning to Esmeralda. The staff is professional and accommodating, the spa itself is scrupulously CLEAN. It is relaxing and peaceful so plan to spend more time there than it takes for your appointment to enjoy the whirlpool, relaxation areas, and steam room. No children or cel phones allowed so it is a true getaway experience. Their scheduling and attention give the impression of a small boutique spa, but I have yet to be unable to get an appointment on the day I requested (I'm sure you would probably need to book further ahead for holidays, etc.).

Each of Renaissance Indian Wells Resort’s rooms and suites has a private balcony from which guests can feast their eyes on far-reaching mountain, desert, or golf-course views. Interiors feature earth tones combined with leather and wood accents and come appointed with terry robes, linens, oversized baths, and flat-screen TVs. WiFi and other business-friendly conveniences also enhance the stay.

Both indoor and alfresco dining options are available at the resort. Sirocco serves authentic, award-winning Italian dinners in a casual yet sophisticated environment. Fresh California cuisine and a laidback patio setting, surrounded by a lush orchid garden, make Cava a favorite among diners; the bill of fare includes locally farmed salads, fresh seafood, and aged steaks, accompanied by a wine list. Sushi, sake, beer, and wine are on the menu at Glo Sushi, which is open for dinner.

Starbucks coffee, fresh-baked pastries, and sandwiches can be found at Café Biscotti. The gazebo Pool Bar refreshes sunbathers with cool drinks and American fare.
