Sands Hotel & Spa

Balancing a chic desert motif of crisp white and sandy pink accents alongside gothic-shaped decorative mirrors with contrasted trippy black-and-white patterns repeating across the entirety of the walls and furniture, the newly opened Sands Hotel & Spa harnesses the satisfaction of well-designed spaces to enchant guests. The property’s aesthetic charm was crafted by designer Martyn Lawrence Bullard. Each of the 46 guest rooms is uniquely decorated with custom furnishings, so no two are exactly alike.

  • Luxurious touches: Guest rooms have Acqua di Parma toiletries, Revival New York linens, a mini bar with vintage crystal glassware, Waterworks bathroom hardware, and Carrara marble countertops. Some rooms include a private patio or balcony.
  • Spa services fusing Western and global methodologies are performed in elegant treatment rooms with naturally-sourced ingredients.
  • Mediterranean dining: The full-service restaurant and bar The Pink Cabana is run by Forbes-acclaimed Executive Chef Jason Niederkorn.
  • Oasis in the desert: A sleek pool and hot tub are flanked by private cabanas and desert palm trees.
  • A little “me time”: To ensure a tranquil and indulgent experience, all hotel guests must be 18 or older.

Palm Desert, California: Shopping and Wildlife in Scenic Coachella Valley

Palm Desert shares the desert landscape and resort atmosphere of nearby Palm Springs. Palm Desert’s El Paseo is known as the Rodeo Drive of the desert for its art galleries and high-end retailers such as Gucci and Ralph Lauren.

Palm Desert is also a gateway to Joshua Tree National Park, located about 40 miles away. The desert park is famous for its unusual geologic formations and mountains of twisted rock and is home to wildlife including desert bighorn sheep and golden eagles. Wildlife sightings are guaranteed at The Living Desert, a zoo, botanical garden, and animal hospital in Palm Desert. As guests stroll through geographical regions, they see flora and fauna indigenous to that area, which can include giraffes or jaguars.
