Ohh Ahhh was the feeling I got when we drove up in our Volkswagen Passat GT into the Miramonte Indian Wells Resort and Spa Curio Collection by Hilton. It was my home away from home for 2 nights in Palm Springs, California, during the A Girl’s Guide to Cars conference. I say “home away from home” and not “home base” or “hotel” because truly, this resort and spa felt like a home. From the moment I stepped into the lobby until the moment I left for the airport, Miramonte Indian Wells Resort and Spa made me feel welcomed and oh so comfy. It managed to wow me with its style and still keep me feeling like I’d been there my entire life.
Miramonte Indian Wells Resort and Spa is Upscale and Laid Back
There’s a certain feel I get when I stay at a posh hotel. I did not feel that one single solitary moment while I was at the Miramonte. On the contrary, I wished my stay would have been a bit longer! Palm Springs was a bucket list city for a long time – CHECKED! I always heard that Palm Springs was known as Hollywood’s playground for Hollywood’s elite. I realized it isn’t just for them! It’s filled with so many great activities all surrounded by its natural beauty and quite affordable for many.
Rooms – Beautiful contemporary décor style
The rooms were spectacularly decorated in a contemporary décor style that was most certainly upscale and inviting. The resort combined a sense of luxury with a welcoming, relaxing tone that came across wonderfully in the choice of bed, linens, wall color, and even drapery. It was posh but not pretentious which I appreciate. Plenty of space, but the rooms weren’t so big as to feel cavernous. Another noteworthy feature of my room was the wonderful view.
Grounds – Views of Santa Rosa mountains
Speaking of views, the grounds of Miramonte Indian Wells Resort and Spa are second to none. Featuring three pools, wonderful firepits, beautiful cabanas, and outdoor games, Miramonte has everything you’d ever want in a resort, and it’s all done quite beautifully. They lean heavily on Spanish-style architecture and no shortage of greenery, which gives the entire outdoor area of the resort a classic feel that still remains fun and engaging rather than dour and arms-length. With gorgeous olive trees and citrus groves, This is, after all, Coachella’s famous Music Fesival destination and it’s where those famous celebrities like Marilyn Monroe and Frank Sinatra retreated to escape their busy schedules.
