Hyatt has announced plans to reposition the Hyatt Regency Indian Wells Resort & Spa under its Grand Hyatt portfolio later this year.

The 531-room hotel is undergoing a $64 million property-wide renovation programme, and the rebrand to Grand Hyatt Indian Wells Resort & Villas is currently slated for September.

Work to redesign the property’s rooms and suites has already been completed, with 39 private villas also set to be unveiled by November.

The hotel will also welcome two new restaurant concepts this summer in collaboration with chef Angelo Sosa.

Tía Carmen at Grand Hyatt Indian Wells “will celebrate the local landscape, farmers and community of the Southwest”, while Carmocha “reimagines global small plates from the perspective of Angelo’s tía [aunt] Carmen if she had travelled around the world and came back from her journeys to put her own spin on some of the dazzling array of international flavours she experienced”.

The hotel is also upgrading its outdoor dining offering, with new poolside options including Palmadoro’s food truck and a refreshed cafe, and a new Kalologie MedSpa is set to open next to the existing Agua Serena Spa this autumn.

The property’s HyTides waterpark has a total of nine pools, as well as “a set of 30-foot high (150-feet in length) dueling waterslides, a 450-foot lazy river and family-friendly favorites, such as an expansive splash pad”.

Other facilities include tennis and pickleball courts, 88,000 square feet of indoor and outdoor events space, including a renovated mezzanine level.

The hotel is also surrounded by several golf courses, including the Indian Wells Golf Resort, Desert Horizons Golf & Country Club, Toscana Country Club and Palm Desert Country Club.

It is also located a couple of miles from the Indian Wells Tennis Garden – home to the annual Indian Wells Masters tennis tournament – and around a 25-minute drive from Palm Springs International Airport.

Commenting on the news Susan Santiago, president, US and Canada, Hyatt, said:

“Grand Hyatt hotels showcase bold and vibrant design and architecture, creating captivating destinations within a destination. The newly renovated and rebranded Grand Hyatt Indian Wells Resort & Villas will introduce guests and members to an elevated level of hospitality.

“Located in a key destination for leisure and business travellers looking to experience the best of Coachella Valley, the refreshed resort will help guests celebrate magnificent moments and create memorable experiences throughout their stay.”

Hyatt recently announced that the group’s pipeline had reached just under 130,000 rooms – a record figure and up nearly 85 per cent since 2017.
