Home to an inordinately high percentage of our nation's most well-off retirees, Indian Wells is akin to a private club.
With a property owner I.D. card, residents enjoy an array of perks from discounts at Indian Wells Golf Resort, hotels, spas and restaurants to special invitations to parties at the BNP Paribas Open, The Living Desert Zoo and Botanical Garden's WildLights and more.
Thankfully, Indian Wells shares its wealth, including the Indian Wells Tennis Garden (host of the BNP Paribas Open and Indian Wells Arts Festival), Indian Wells Golf Resort and IW Club and Desert Town Hall Indian Wells lecture series.
Four deluxe hotel properties lie within the city's borders: Hyatt Grand Champions Resort, Villas and Spa; Indian Wells Resort Hotel; Miramonte Resort & Spa; and Renaissance Esmeralda Resort & Spa.
