Very professionally run spa within the Renaissance Hotel. My therapist, Patricia, was great. She explained the procedures, asked about clinical conditions then provided to give me one of the best massages I've ever had with the highlight putting hot stones at the nape of my neck as well as gently over my eyes. Bliss. Afterwards she gently raised the bed... More

The Esmeralda is in Indian Wells, just a few miles from the main area of Palm Springs. It is a stunning resort with everything you could want. There is no need to leave the hotel unless you want to shop in Palm Springs. It is family friendly and has special things for kids. They play movies out at the pool... More

My wife and I purchased the Travelzoo deal for $99 for a 1-hour long massage. There is a required gratuity (something upwards of $30) that is charged at the time of service. The deal didn't seem to save that much money. However, regardless of the price, it was a top-notch massage and top-notch service from everyone on staff. We were... More

I got a great deal - a summer special that was advertised on the elevator in the Renaissance. Everyone was friendly, the spa shower area is beautiful and the facilities clean and refreshing. Patricia did a wonderful body exfoliation and was so personable, sweet and kind, she's a gem! I can't remember the name of the woman who gave me... More

This review is for the SPA ESMERALDA ONLY: My friend had planned a day trip to the spa to celebrate my birthday. She contacted the Spa, made massage appointments and was told to arrive early, as they would make it special for my birthday. At that time she also inquired how late the spa would be open? She was told... More

My husband and I spent 3 days at the Esmeralda and enjoyed everything! The staff was professional and very pleasant! The room was clean and bedding was very comfortable!

I was impressed by not only the spa itself, but the level of attention paid to the guests. Very personalized experience. Had an amazing massage by Elena and a facial by Jo-an. Enjoyed lunch outside by the jacuzzi. I will definitely be back.
