Miramonte Indian Wells Resort & Spa, Curio Collection by Hilton Completes Final Stage of $8 Million Renovation

INDIAN WELLS, CA. September 21, 2017 - Miramonte Indian Wells Resort & Spa announces the completion of an $8 million property-wide renovation, marking the end of a multi-year makeover and rebranding project that included joining the Curio Collection by Hilton in December 2016.

Located in the heart of California’s Coachella Valley, Miramonte is situated at the base of the Santa Rosa Mountains and is the ideal jumping off point for experiencing all the adventure and relaxation available in the surrounding desert oasis. The property’s renovation project spanned several phases beginning with the guest rooms, suites and outdoor social spaces. Most recently, the lobby, bar, restaurant, meeting spaces and award-winning Well Spa received an overhaul.

The newly redesigned lobby opens up to the refreshed bar and lounge concept Tavern at Citrus & Palm and the re-named farm-to-table restaurant Citrus & Palm that now offer a soothing atmosphere with an array of modern wood finishes, colorful eye-catching artwork and intricate light fixtures. Executive Chef Paul Hancock has revamped the seasonal menu to incorporate more local ingredients sourced directly from Coachella Valley farmers, creating an array of delectable and nutritious meals that promote wellness from plate to palate. Paying homage to its location, the Citrus & Palm name refers to the abundance of native citrus trees and date palms that grow in the area. Tavern at Citrus & Palm will also emulate the California casual feel of the new restaurant with the addition of a dedicated coffee corner and plush lounge seating.

More notable changes within the resort can be found in the meetings and event spaces as well as the Well Spa. The more than 20,000 square feet of indoor event space available on-property has also been given an updated look that blends traditional Palm Springs modernism with steel, wood, and warm colored accents. The award-winning Well Spa has refreshed its interior and added new chaise-style chairs, modern lighting and lush greenery to the outdoor areas.

The vision behind this updated design was brought forth by the Los Angeles-based design studio, Indidesign, ensuring that the property maintained a classic yet elegant feel while mimicking the light and relaxed aesthetic for which Palm Springs and the Coachella Valley are known. Highly shaped by the landscape of Indian Wells, the curated look redefines what it means to be Coachella Cool.

“We are looking forward to ushering in this new era at Miramonte with the completion of our renovation,” said Matthew La Vine, General Manager at Miramonte Indian Wells Resort & Spa. “After going through several iterations over the decades, this property now truly reflects its home here in the Coachella Valley, a destination full of adventure and culture that is waiting to be rediscovered.”

In celebration of this new era for Miramonte Indian Wells Resort & Spa, the resort has unveiled its exclusive Miramonte Reimagined offer starting at $189/night that includes luxury accommodations and a $100 resort credit (based on a two nights stay). The offer is valid for stays from September 4, 2017 through December 31, 2017.

Feature Focus
Architecture & Design: Authentic, Interactive and Immersive
If there is one dominant trend in the field of hotel architecture and design, it’s that travelers are demanding authentic, immersive and interactive experiences. This is especially true for Millennials but Baby Boomers are seeking out meaningful experiences as well. As a result, the development of immersive travel experiences - winery resorts, culinary resorts, resorts geared toward specific sports enthusiasts - will continue to expand. Another kind of immersive experience is an urban resort – one that provides all the elements you'd expect in a luxury resort, but urbanized. The urban resort hotel is designed as a staging area where the city itself provides all the amenities, and the hotel functions as a kind of sophisticated concierge service. Another trend is a re-thinking of the hotel lobby, which has evolved into an active social hub with flexible spaces for work and play, featuring cafe?s, bars, libraries, computer stations, game rooms, and more. The goal is to make this area as interactive as possible and to bring people together, making the space less of a traditional hotel lobby and more of a contemporary gathering place. This emphasis on the lobby has also had an associated effect on the size of hotel rooms – they are getting smaller. Since most activities are designed to take place in the lobby, there is less time spent in rooms which justifies their smaller design. Finally, the wellness and ecology movements are also having a major impact on design. The industry is actively adopting standards so that new structures are not only environmentally sustainable, but also promote optimum health and well- being for the travelers who will inhabit them. These are a few of the current trends in the fields of hotel architecture and design that will be examined in the November issue of the Hotel Business Review.
