On the south side of State Route 111 at Indian Wells Lane, despite being by a busy highway, the resort feels tranquil thanks to the gardens and palm trees. Indian Wells lies in the east of Greater Palm Springs and is a sporty, residential city. Every March some 400,000 tennis fans flock here for the BNP Paribas Open. Transfers from Palm Springs Airport take 35 minutes and there is free parking. On the opposite side of the highway, the Hyatt Regency Indian Wells Resort has a popular water park and there are also several golf courses close by.
By plane: flights to Palm Springs take 14 hours from London with a stop in Phoenix, Arizona. The hotel is a 35-minute drive from the airport. On-site parking available. Book flights to Palm Springs.
THE LOOK AND FEEL
This low-rise, 11-acre resort has an inviting Mediterranean theme with well-kept lawns and terracotta tile-roofed accommodation blocks sporting names like Sorrento and Piedmont. Unlike some Greater Palm Springs hotels, the mood is relaxed and civilised; if you like things quiet, seek out the Hideaway Pool where there is no piped music.
It's all about the pools, spa and gardens here, but there are also lawn games, a bocce court and a small fitness centre with Peloton bikes that is open 24/7. Friday and Saturday have the most atmosphere when there's live music in the evenings. Staff are friendly and courteous, and meals and drinks can be delivered poolside or to your room.
