A four-star sanctuary in the desert, the Renaissance Esmeralda Resort and Spa provides first-class service at the foot of the spectacular Santa Rosa Mountains. Well-designed architecture features a stunning blend of African ash woods accented with hand-laid tile walkways, an eight-story atrium lobby, specially commissioned works of art, and a storied grand staircase. With views filled by fountains, lakes and the Players golf course, Esmeralda is truly an oasis of sophisticated delights.
Five hundred-sixty beautifully appointed rooms and suites provide a personal retreat to unwind, each featuring a host of luxurious amenities such as plush terrycloth robes, double basins set in marble vanities, spacious double-sided closets, and private balconies overlooking the mountains or pool.
The Renaissance Esmeralda has recently invested $12 million in modernizing its extensive event facilities with the most current A/V equipment, sleek lighting and timeless design touches. In all, the resort offers 45 spacious meeting rooms ranging from 500 to 18,392 square feet, including office space, executive boardrooms and pre-function space with floor-to-ceiling windows capturing dramatic vistas of the Santa Rosa Mountains. Whether it’s a high-intensity conference, a festive wedding or an intimate gathering of friends, skilled planners are on hand to take care of the details so guests can sit back and enjoy the peaceful surroundings.
Visitors revel in authentic cuisine at Sirocco — rated by Zagat as the best Italian restaurant in the Coachella Valley — and taste California fresh flavors at the bistro-style eatery, Cava. Live music and spectacular mountain-views are available at Stir Lounge, while sunbathing refreshment is on tap at the Pool Bar, and renowned Starbucks coffee is served at Cafe Biscotti. At the end of a warm desert night, guests love to hit the Glo lobby bar for specialty beverages and a delicious tapas menu.[ad#text]
