FrontRunners: Doing Wells

<< Back to Robb Report, March 2004

Leisure is elevated to an art form this spring when the city of Indian Wells, Calif., augments its annual tennis classic with two promising premieres: the inaugural Desert Festival of Wine, Food & the Arts, and the debut of the new spa at the Miramonte Resort.

Indian Wells will attract top-ranked professional tennis players to participate in the Pacific Life Open (March 8 through 21, www.pacificlifeopen.com), and two weeks after hosting the Open, the Indian Wells Tennis Garden will transform into an epicenter of artistic
and epicurean delights for the Desert Festival (April 2 through 4, 800.999.1585, www .iwtg.net). It will feature luncheons prepared by celebrity chefs, cooking demonstrations, and wine seminars, along with the crafts of the Southwest’s finest artisans. Set to coincide with the Desert Festival is the grand opening of the Miramonte’s (877.253.2998, www.miramonteresort.com) 12,000-square-foot spa, the Well. The new facility, which includes four mud bars and a Watsu pool, will offer a full range of health and beauty services in a Tuscan-inspired setting.
