Palm Springs is studded with stylish hideaways, ranging from motels-turned-luxury-boutique-hotels to glamorous, palm-lined resorts, all getting ready to cater to thousands of music fans. Those who will be calling the desert home for the week, will have one more Instagram-worthy resort to choose from with the recently debuted Sands Hotel & Spa. Located in the heart of Indian Wells, and only a quick 20-minute drive from the festival grounds, you’ll find the petal-pink property that has been given a top-to-bottom makeover by celebrity interior designer Martyn Lawrence Bullard—who has formerly worked with Sands owner PRG Hospitality Group on the breezy Colony Palm Hotel in neighboring Palm Springs.
Known for his more-is-more approach to interiors, Bullard has outfitted each of the 49 rooms and suites in his signature Moroccan-inspired decor and mixed it with what else but mid-century-modern accents. The resulting individually designed rooms and suites are a vibrant reprieve from the heat and sound of the festival—coming equipped with gilt accents, outdoor tubs, and Martini-ready mini bars. And for the ultimate oasis for a larger group of friends, book Le Raid, a sprawling two-story suite equipped with spacious outdoor patios, a full kitchen, and a sexy soaking tub at the foot of the master bed. Polish off the weekend at the hotels Moroccan-inspired spa where treatments are designed to detoxify and replenish the body using naturally sourced ingredients, perfect for a post-concert recovery.
