Renaissance Esmeralda’s prime location places you in the heart of Indian Wells, and though you’ll be surrounded by renowned hiking and scenery, you’ll find few reasons to leave the property, so grab your sunscreen and flip-flops! Here’s why Renaissance Esmeralda Resort & Spa is our favorite desert retreat for every type of traveler. 


1 | For the Golf Gurus

Planning on hitting the green during your desert vacay? Guests can head next door to Indian Wells Golf Resort to practice their swing on the pristinely manicured 36-hole course. Between the majestic mountains in the background and swaying palm trees, a round (or two) of golf on this breathtaking course is exactly what the doctor ordered for an easy and breezy summer vacay. Thankfully, this Indian Wells resort offers a killer Golfer’s Playcation package that includes 15% off retail tee times at Indian Wells Golf Resort, along with a complimentary golf cart rental for two. With the package, players also receive free transport to and from Indian Wells Golf Resort and a sleeve of three professional branded golf balls. If you’re looking for things to do in Indian Wells in the evening, try your hand at Shots in the Night for laser putting or glowing target practice at Toptracer Driving Range.

For teachers, summer break is first and foremost a well-deserved break! After a long year of instruction and discipline, Renaissance Esmeralda is the perfect place for teachers looking to kick back in a shady cabana or enjoy a poolside cocktail while catching some sun. The Classroom to Cabana package seeks to give back to all educators and recognize their impact by treating them to discounted cabanas, resort parking and more. Monday through Thursday, verified teachers can reserve a spacious cabana for 50% off, allowing them to rest and recharge. These cabanas come with cushioned lawn chairs, a refreshing fruit plate and a cooling ceiling fan, allowing you to chill poolside while ordering margaritas and shareable apps all day long. If you find yourself craving some sand between your toes, take a dip in the resort’s sandy beach pool before heading to the spa for a well-deserved massage or anti-aging facial.

3 | For the Dog Moms and Dog Dads

Can’t bear to leave your four-legged family member at home? Renaissance Esmeralda Resort & Spa is a dog-friendly property that encourages guests to bring their beloved pups along for the adventure by booking the Paw Paradise Package. In addition to providing you with premium pet-friendly accommodations, this purposeful package also helps raise awareness for the Palm Springs Animal Shelter, aiding in their goal to save thousands of dogs and cats in the Coachella Valley every year. 

The recently redesigned rooms and suites boast midcentury modern furnishings and retro decor, creating a stylish yet cozy ambiance for you and your furry friend. Upon arrival, you’ll also be greeted with a resort-branded doggie bandana and travel bowl, allowing you to take a piece of Renaissance Esmeralda with you on all of your future adventures. If you have more than one dog, keep in mind that there is a two-pet limit per room.

Looking to take the kids on a summer escape without leaving SoCal? Between the gorgeous swimming pool and endless kid-friendly activities, this resort in Indian Wells is the ultimate destination for a family vacation. Those looking to take advantage of the three-day weekend can check out the Memorial Day Weekend Celebration Package, which can be booked May 22-28. 

Get a head start on the day with a 10 a.m. early check-in before hitting the pools with your complimentary branded beach ball and tube floaties.

This way, you can have your space and the kids can have theirs. Most importantly, the Memorial Day Weekend Celebration Package includes a daily resort credit of $100 so you can let loose with poolside beverages or family dinners. Other options for the kids include an evening of arcade games at the Desert Glow Entertainment Zone or arts and crafts at Camp Esmeralda.
