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.

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.
