California’s Coachella Valley is calling your name. Palm Desert is a stunning oasis that will keep you cool on the golf course, in the pool and all along the Shops on El Paseo. Los Angeles is two hours away and Joshua Tree even closer, so whether you’re headed on a hike or getting crazy at Coachella, these are the best hotels for your stay in Palm Desert, bookable on Culture Trip.
We’re no mathematicians, but the Well Spa’s three outdoor relaxation spaces, nine indoor treatment rooms and five heavenly pampering sessions equals one serene stay. There’s more to the Miramonte Indian Wells Resort & Spa than soaking pools and steam rooms, but who has time for golf, tennis or swimming when there are massages, body scrubs and facials to be had? Not someone who’s busy receiving a specialty citrus treatment, that’s for sure.
Heading to the Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival for the first time? If camping is out of the question, Courtyard by Marriott will put you up for a few nights. Your king suite is a great retreat from a day spent rocking out in the sun. The shower may not seem like a luxe amenity at first, but by the third day of the festival, you’ll realize that a little soap and water goes a long way.
Consider the Holiday Inn Express & Suites your oasis in Palm Desert. Blackout shades in your room and an indoor pool keep you cool and comfortable no matter how high the mercury rises. Throw some ice in the lobby’s complimentary coffee while you’re at it, and cool the sweat away. If you can stand a little sun, you can get some retail therapy next door at the River Mall; it is an outdoor mall, so feel free to dart into the movie theater if you can’t take the heat.
With only 24 rooms, you will hardly have to share your experience at the Chateau at Lake La Quinta. Work on your all-over tan on your private patio and cover up with a soft robe when you want to head down to the bar for a Moscow mule. Mingle with the few other guests over champagne, then head back to your lakeside bungalow – unless, of course, your new friends insist on another round.
Your short game needs work, especially if you’re playing the back nine at Palm Royale Country Club. Consider Desert Breezes Resort your caddie; their on-property putting green will help you sink those long putts. Whenever you feel like donning the lucky red shirt, head across the street to the first tee. Meanwhile, if you’re the one rolling your eyes at the thought of losing your partner to the links on your vacation, Desert Breezes has three pools and 11 spas to help you forgive and forget.
