At the foot of the San Jacinto Mountains, this resort offers all the sophistication and fun you’d expect from this most inclusive and stylish of destinations. Indeed, with the world-class shopping, golf and entertainment of Palm Springs on your doorstep, and a whole host of national parks and natural wonders close at hand, you’ll be perfectly placed to experience the very best of your Coachella Valley surrounds.
Rooms, decorated in soft golds and subtle reds, echo the surrounding landscapes, views of which are framed by sliding glass doors that lead out to furnished private balconies. There are all the mod cons you’d expect, of course, with handcrafted, pillow-top beds and Aveda bath amenities while the ever-so-spacious suites, also with pool or mountain views, come with their own lounge area perfect for in-room dining.
Which leads us nicely on to the Renaissance’s fine assortment of dining options. There’s elegant fine dining at DATE, a locals’ favourite open throughout the day, with farm-to-fork delights that range from delicious apple pancakes to grilled filet mignon accompanied by a rich mushroom ragout. Or, for a more laid-back setting, the Rocks Lounge pairs hand-crafted cocktails with a select menu of lighter bites as cool leather couches and a fire pit-adorned patio come together to create an atmosphere of calm conviviality. It’s the perfect place to relax after a day spent hiking in the surrounding wilderness.
And the relaxation doesn’t end with the dining as the sun-baked Grand Courtyard welcomes guests to what is the largest pool in Palm Springs. Here, private cabanas, comfy chaises and a whirlpool lend themselves to long, lazy days, while the little ones are equally well catered to with a kids’ pool and play area, complete with sand pit. And for the adults, the Spa del Sol – open daily from 9am to 6pm – offers everything from rejuvenating facials to indulgent massages.
