Fifteen miles south of Palm Springs, there's another oasis in the desert that boasts all the star power, sunshine, and elegance of its better-known neighbor to the north. Indian Wells began as a date-ranching town in the early 1900s, and by the middle of the century it was co-opted by silver-screen stars in need of a recharge. Today it's home to one of nine tournaments in the tennis Masters 1000, but most come to Indian Wells to relax by the pool, hit the links, and indulge in fine food and wine.

Founded in 1957 by Hollywood legends Lucille Ball and Desi Arnaz, the Indian Wells Resort still exudes that Golden Age elegance that earned it a spot on the original PGA Bob Hope Chrysler Classic. Though renovated over the years to bring discerning guests the modern amenities they expect from a celebrity-owned retreat, the Indian Wells Resort still features a vast collection of historic photos and a restaurant reminiscent of the Rat Pack days, replete with live Sinatra-style entertainment. Luxury rooms are appointed with a king or two double beds, TV, and a view of the desert or pool.

In addition to the stellar 36-hole Celebrity and Players courses—which opened in 2006 and feature immaculately manicured fairways, plus waterfalls, streams, and lakes—the resort offers access to another 36 holes of golf at the Indian Wells Country Club. Off the course, you'll have access to a large heated swimming pool and a hot therapy pool, two tennis courts, a fitness center, and a casual restaurant and bar on the 11th hole.

Outside the resort, Palm Springs offers world-class retail in the El Paseo Shopping District, an educational look at the local habitat at The Living Desert zoo and gardens, and even a touch of culture at the Palm Springs Art Museum, all within minutes of Indian Wells.

  • "This hotel was amazing! The grounds were immaculate, the lobby and restaurants were wonderful, and the staff was fabulous! I plan on staying there again real soon."
