4 p.m. Check into Miramonte Resort & Spa
At the foot of the Santa Rosa Mountains lies the ultra-luxe resort, Miramonte Resort & Spa. With 215 guest rooms, villas and suites nestled into 11 acres of olive trees, fragrant citrus groves and rose, herb and flower gardens, there isn’t a bad room on the property. Enticing scents captivate the senses, adding a new element of enjoyment. Guests can hold hands while meandering through the lavish grounds, soaking up the warm sunshine and breathing in the natural aromatic air. Stately archways invite guests into the Mediterranean-inspired hotel with spacious accommodations that are sophisticated and stylish. In the heart of the resort, you’ll find Citrus & Palm Restaurant and The Tavern bar, fire pits, a bocce ball court and live music on Fridays and Saturdays. This upscale resort is a true sanctuary with everything at your fingertips to create an unforgettable weekend, including an elite spa that will revive your mind, body and soul.
6 p.m. Play a Game of Bocce Ball and Relax in the Hot Tub
Miramonte has several outdoor games to keep you entertained when you don’t feel like wandering far. After you’ve unpacked your bags, play a friendly game of bocce ball. Then, once the sun begins to drop, enjoy a nighttime trip to the hot tub with your hunny.
9 a.m. Breakfast at Citrus & Palm
Follow the paths through the olive groves to find Citrus & Palm for a laid-back breakfast with farm-to-table freshness. The chef uses many of the resort-grown ingredients on the menu. You can choose to sit inside the chic and contemporary restaurant, but we recommend dining on the restaurant’s outdoor patio among beguiling olive groves for a whimsical and memorable experience. The classic California menu includes everything from staples like avocado toast and huevos rancheros to baked goods like muffins and croissants.
11 a.m. Round of Golf at Indian Wells Golf Resort
The highly ranked and nationally renowned Indian Wells Golf Resort is in a different echelon of golf courses. Its greatness can only be fully appreciated in person. To play here is to be surrounded by magnificence, even if you’re a novice player. Paths weave in and around the course with unparalleled views in every direction. A premier clubhouse and two 18-hole courses complete with streams, lakes, waterfalls and sprawling fairways make this course enjoyable and just as remarkable for all levels.1/1
2 p.m. Soak Up the Sun Poolside
After a swing on the green, head back to Miramonte to unwind by one of the three sparkling saltwater pools. You’ll find instant satisfaction the moment you lay your towel down. The main pool is the epitome of leisure and extravagance. Private cabanas available for rent are an ultra-luxurious experience that will have you feeling like royalty. If you’re looking for something intimate, you can choose to chill in two other secluded watering holes. All three offer plenty of food and drinks to keep the good vibes alive.
3:30 p.m. Enjoy a Couples Massage at The Well Spa
Make your way to the award-winning Well Spa for a couples massage that will heighten your relaxation and elevate your overall well-being with your significant other by your side. The spa is proud to draw inspiration from its surroundings. Using wellness techniques inspired by the desert’s mystical healing powers, the spa provides guests with an ultimate recaliberation. Massages and body scrubs use citrus from the property’s trees, expanding their definition of farm to table–or should we say grove to body?
5:30 p.m. Happy Hour and Live Music Under the Stars
Grab your hand-crafted cocktail (made with fresh ingredients grown on property) at Tavern Bar before heading out to the Olive Grove Patio for live music. At night, the Olive Grove Patio comes to life with lantern lights, fire pits and a signature fire wall, making this spot the perfect place to post up for a romantic evening. Miramonte hosts live music on Fridays and Saturdays, where you can scoot close together and hold hands by a fire pit or get even closer swaying together under the stars. The vibe ranges from acoustic sets covering classic hits to pop chart-toppers. The infinite night sky covers the grounds in mystery, setting the scene for a romantic night perfect for stealing a kiss. Live music, starry skies and a dream location hits differently than your average date night, so come see for yourself.
