Mediterranean-Inspired Resort with Views of the Santa Rosa Mountains
In the Southern California resort town of Indian Wells, desert sunlight spills over the Santa Rosa Mountains and into a scenic valley occupied by Miramonte Resort & Spa. Sixteen red-roofed villas are spread out across the property, which features italian fountains, mediterranean columns and archways, and vivid splashes of purple bougainvillea. In its aura and architecture, the resort resembles Tuscany, albeit a version surrounded by mountainous desert terrain.
Luxury rooms and Dolce suites are decorated with a color scheme of olive, sand, and nutmeg that reflects the landscape. Outside, a communal herb garden sprouts sage, basil, and rosemary. In addition to perfuming the air, these herbs—along with citrus fruits and olives from onsite groves—add zest to fresh seasonal fare served at The Grove Artisan Kitchen. At Miramonte's spa, you can use your $25 credit toward any 60-minute treatment, such as a warm-candle-oil massage or a hydrating facial. Resort guests also enjoy easy access to three championship golf courses and the Indian Wells Tennis Garden.
The town of Indian Wells is tucked between Palm Desert and La Quinta in California's Coachella Valley. It's just about 16 miles south of Palm Springs—the affluent, artsy community known for its abundance of outdoor activities such as golf, tennis, and hiking through desert mountains. The whitewashed galleries of the Palm Springs Art Museum are filled with traditional and modern pieces in exhibits showcasing contemporary glasswork and Native American pottery. About 4 miles north of the museum, the Indian Canyons abound with geological formations and Indian artifacts, including some manmade bedrock mortars and metates once used to prepare food. At Palm Canyon, a winding footpath leads through rocky gorges and parched deserts to a prime picnicking spot beside a babbling stream.
The Living Desert gives travelers a chance to savor the climate while strolling grounds filled with desert flora and fauna. Friendly nubian goats nuzzle visitors in Village WaTuTu, and bearded dragon lizards sun themselves in a semiarid woodland display. A shuttle ferries guests to cactus groves, butterfly gardens, and other animal exhibits.
