This resort in California’s desert near Palm Springs has over 600 hotel rooms and conference facilities including a 1800 SM ballroom. The design centers on a series of pools and water features which form a connection between the main building and the conference center. Food and beverage and entertainment areas surround the pools, which attract both guests and visitors for outdoor dining.
Esmarelda has become a destination for luxury seeking guests, offering a range of fitness and sport activities in a carefully scaled environment.
The resort’s second phase added a 2500 SM full service spa, which includes private outdoor massage pavilions and showers cut from native stone and finished with glass tiles and local planting.
