A stylish stay at a new boutique hotel with interiors by celebrity designer Martyn Lawrence Bullard

Soak up southern California’s legendary sunshine, and its healing thermal waters, while based in a luxurious Greater Palm Springs retreat. Sands Hotel & Spa puts you near the region’s best, also including fabulous shopping and Coachella’s polo grounds, as the first designer boutique hotel in Indian Wells – and as you might expect, it also offers some spectacular spaces of its own. The visionary behind its design was none other than Martyn Lawrence Bullard, one of Architectural Digest’s top 100 designers in the world, and both the common areas and abodes feature his signature retro-infused Moroccan décor.

Soak up all this glamorous style as you lounge in the lobby, dine at full-service Mediterranean restaurant The Pink Cabana, or unwind in the spa. You may not even want to leave, after a soothing session in the peaceful wellness oasis’ individual or couples treatment rooms. Or, continue soaking in the literal sense, and catching those SoCal rays, while appreciating the chic aesthetic at the same time. One of the best-looking of the spaces on-site is the pool, lined by loungers, date palms and black-and-white-striped cabanas and framed on two sides by the hotel’s pink-and-white-striped façades.


  • Being near Greater Palm Springs’ best shopping, plus polo grounds, tennis courts and more
  • Indulging in a full spa day, or soaking in the pretty pool
  • Savouring Mediterranean fare at the full-service restaurant
  • Calling Indian Wells’ first designer boutique hotel, by an Architectural Digest favorite, home
