The scenic views of Palm Springs were a welcomed change of scenery from the cold east coast. I arrived and was not only greeted with a smile but a refreshing glass of wine. As an attendee of the Girls Guide to Cars conference this was the perfect backdrop.
It's hard not to fall in love with the decor and energy of the resort. The layout was so inviting and perfect for any type of traveler. The citrus smells from the fruit growing on many of the trees and the locally made sculptures added an extra sense of tranquility. You could almost envision the various activities you could do depending on your travel plans.
The Miramonte Indian Wells Resort and Spa is part of the Hilton Hotels Curio collection. It is centrally located in the heart of Palm Springs close to the airport, shopping, an award winning golf course, the infamous Coachella, and minutes from the BMW Performance Center.
Who Should Stay Here?
Couples, Family Vacation, or Girlfriends Getaway this resort has something for everyone. Resorts that make it easy to get a big bang for your buck will always be on my repeat visit list and I've already added the Miramonte Indian Wells Resort and Spa.
With over 200 rooms that provide more space than the average hotel room, Miramonte Resort offers the perfect escape and private outside sitting area, that you might never want to go home.
Call me crazy but I always check the toiletries first because I have sensitive skin and since I pack light, I prefer to use the hotels. I generally call ahead to ask so I was excited to see that these would be fine.
This first floor patio room featured a plush bed, oversized closet, mini fridge, coffee maker, antique style desk and sitting area. The space was perfect for in room exercise.
Melt the stress away at the Wells Spa. With nine treatment rooms and three outdoor spaces it just doesn't seem like one day is enough. They have a variety of services available and the scenic views scream relax and replenish.
Resort pools are almost as important as the bed you sleep in. The signature pool, Miramonte pool, is situated off the lobby and it welcomes the sun while you lounge and enjoy the picturesque mountain views. There are two other pools nestled in the resort. Private cabanas are available for an extra charge with food and beverage service throughout the day.
Your Taste Buds will Thank You
The onsite signature restaurant, The Citrus & Palm, offers delicious farm to table entrees that are both healthy and delicious. Chef Paul Hancock crafted a sample menu for conference attendees and while it was hard to choose, the C&P Burger was calling my name. Dessert was perfect for sharing or maybe not:)
