The problem with playgrounds? They're always for kids. But imagine if that merry-go-round were replaced with world-class shopping, and in lieu of a sandbox, there was a full-service spa. Turn that swing set into an 18-hole golf course, the plastic kitchen into fine dining and, voilà, you've got Miramonte Resort & Spa.

A TripAdvisor 2012 Certificate of Excellence winner, this Indian Wells resort about two hours east of Los Angeles is offering a one-night stay for two in a 450-square-foot Luxury Room, Sundays through Thursdays ($149) or Friday ($179).

Featuring your choice of a king or two queen beds; a guest room; self-parking; a private veranda overlooking the gardens, the pool, or the Santa Rosa Mountains; a marble bath; high-speed Wi-Fi; and much more, rooms at this AAA Four Diamond-rated resort make the perfect home base for your 24-hour playdate.

Kick things off with your $25 spa credit for any 60-minute treatment at The Well Spa, an indoor/outdoor oasis where everything from mud bars, a Watsu pool, Swiss showers, hydrotherapy rubs, olive-oil scrubs, and wine baths will release your work stress and put you in a playful mood.

And since you're in the golf capital of the world, where more than 100 courses lie at your fingertips, including the adjacent Indian Wells Golf Resort, playful is the right mood to be in. Next, jump over to the heart of Palm Springs for a walk down Palm Canyon Drive, lined with palm trees wrapped in sparkling lights and some of the finest boutiques, art galleries, restaurants, and shops in the country.

Swing back to the resort and enjoy your $25 food-and-beverage credit at Grove Artisan Kitchen. Specializing in farm-to-table cuisine, this Mediterranean-inspired restaurant, at once elegant and West Coast casual, features organic produce, fresh herbs, local ranch-raised meats and poultry, and fresh Pacific seafood.

With time winding down, you'll want to savor every bite like a child enjoying the last minutes of playground time. But the best part: You won't need permission to return—this is one playground where it pays to be a grown up.
