At Palm Springs’ Renaissance Esmeralda Resort & Spa, we have a wealth of recreation options and activities to choose from.
One of the most popular desert activities, of course, is to relax and soak up the sun by the pool. Our resort features two that are unique and inviting, plus a large whirlpool. Enjoy wading into our zero-entry pool with a real sand beach, a favorite for the young and young at heart. Adjacent to this pool is another centered around an enchanting water feature: a stretched gazebo with a dazzling water curtain, providing a soothing music and a mesmerizing spectacle. We also have an expansive children’s pool. The entire setting is surrounded by wide patios with plenty of lounge recliners, umbrellas, cabanas, and manicured landscape.
For those who seek an authentic Palm Springs spa experience, we offer one of the desert’s best, Spa Esmeralda. Enter into a sleek, soothing world of smooth marble floors, gleaming glass and tile, sculpted wood, plush furnishings, textural fabrics and soft linens, and the soft, tinkling music of a trickling stone fountain. Take a deep breath and let the transformation begin as our professional staff help you soothe away the stress of a day or a year in a blissful garden setting, surrounded by the alluring desert landscape. From exquisite body treatments, salon offerings, holistic therapies, and more, you will enjoy a complete, private and blissful experience.
For the active-minded, we have two of the best Palm Springs golf courses you will find. The renowned Indian Wells courses have won numerous awards—including being ranked among the Top 20 in California by Golf Week—as well as being recently featured on The Golf Channel’s Big Break series. The Celebrity Course is a Par 72 course designed by Clive Clark and is a fun and challenging course for all skill levels. Designed by John Fought, The Players Course, also a Par 72, highlights the approach game with a series of brilliantly conceived landscape elements.
