Hotel Guide


Originally built in the late 1950s, the Sands Hotel & Spa was recently re-imagined in 2018 to become the first designer boutique hotel in the upscale community of Indian wells. Designed by renowned interior designer Martyn Lawrence Bullard, one of Architectural Digest’s Top 100 designers in the world, the hotel has emerged as an upscale luxury boutique known for its Moroccan influence and midcentury nods.

The Sands Hotel & Spa features 46 guest rooms, each with its own unique flare and distinct environment. All guest rooms and suites feature Acqua di Parma bath amenities, full-size in- room mini bars with vintage crystal stemware, Waterworks brass fixtures, Revival New York linens, and in-room movie system designed to work with each guest’s personal phone.

We also invite you to sample the culinary delights of our on-site restaurant, the Pink Cabana. The Pink Cabana is an ingredient driven restaurant featuring Mediterranean cuisine with a Moroccan influence. Chef Jason Niederkorn has received world renowned accolades from Condé Nast Traveler, LA times and Forbes, amongst others. Guests are welcome to enjoy their dining experience in the MLB designed dining room, Al Fresco, poolside or in-room.

The signature spa is located in the serene olive grove section of the property. The spa features three intimate treatment rooms, including a couple’s treatment room. Combining traditional Western techniques with detoxifying minerals and botanicals from all over the world, the spa at the Sands Hotel & Spa will leave your body, as well as your mind, with a sense of rejuvenation.

It is our pleasure to accommodate any of your requests, so please do not hesitate to contact us for any of your needs. On behalf of the entire staff, we welcome you to the Sands experience.
