Hyatt Regency Indian Wells will be rebranded to Grand Hyatt Indian Wells Resort and Villas in September 2024 following the completion of a $64 million US renovation, report Hyatt Hotels Corporation and Trinity Investments.

The revamp of the iconic California desert resort includes redesigned guestrooms and luxury villas, an expanded lobby experience, elevated accommodations, refreshed meeting and event spaces, two new dining concepts and a reimagined pool complex with extended cabana offerings.

“Grand Hyatt hotels showcase bold and vibrant design and architecture, creating captivating destinations within a destination. The newly renovated and rebranded Grand Hyatt Indian Wells Resort & Villas will introduce guests and members to an elevated level of hospitality,” said Susan Santiago, president, U.S. and Canada, Hyatt. “Located in a key destination for leisure and business travelers looking to experience the best of Coachella Valley, the refreshed resort will help guests celebrate magnificent moments and create memorable experiences throughout their stay.”

Overseen by southern California firm IndiDesign, the redesign of Grand Hyatt Indian Wells combines a neutral color palette and tasteful wood accents with mid-century modern design elements. The property’s newly enhanced 531 accommodations, including 39 suites, have completed renovations while 43 one- and two-bedroom private villas are set to debut in November 2024.

The property’s large guestrooms – each 550 square feet – are available in a range of configurations: one king bed, two king beds, with full-sized bunkbeds, and more. Each room features a multi-functional living space, a spa-inspired bathroom, and a private patio or balcony.

The resort’s newly renovated suites include a separate living area with a sleeper sofa, a wet bar with full-sized refrigerator and microwave, and dual private balconies offering views of the golf course, pool, resort grounds and surrounding mountains.

As the premier offering at Grand Hyatt Indian Wells, the luxury villas will feature hand-crafted furniture mixed with modern decor and artistic lighting fixtures; private backyards with hot tub, plunge pool or firepit; kitchenettes with refrigerators; access to an adults only spa; and golf cart escorts around the property.

Other highlights of the revamped property include:

  • two new restaurant concepts – Tía Carmen and Carmocha – in collaboration with Chef Angelo Sosa planned for late summer 2024 openings;
  • enhancements to the resort’s pool experience, including expanded cabanas for large groups and families, new poolside dining options (food truck and a refreshed cafe);
  • the largest waterpark in the Greater Palm Springs desert, HyTides, which has nine pools, a set of 30-foot high dueling waterslides, a 450-foot lazy river, and an expansive splash pad;
  • and the 30,000-square-foot Agua Serena Spa, which will unveil new enhancements this fall.

In addition, Grand Hyatt Indian Wells will offer 88,000 square feet of indoor and outdoor function space, including recently revitalized ballroom, meeting rooms and boardrooms as well as terraces and lawns.

The property is a short drive from Palm Springs International Airport.
