For families looking for that light at the end of the winter tunnel, the Renaissance Esmeralda Resort & Spa has warm, welcoming fun lined up for Spring Break. Starting March 18 to April 15, this Indian Wells resort will feature daily supervised games including musical chairs, tug of war, tag and more. Everyone can get into the fun at Craft Zone with cookie coloring, frame and tote decorating and bracelet making. Other activities include a special waterslide and bounce house set up on the resort grounds and family movies for hours of play poolside. The fire pits are great evening gathering places where families can tell stories and eat S’mores.
Camp Oasis, for kids aged 5-12, will be open daily, giving parents a chance to relax poolside, enjoy a couples massage, or perhaps get in a round at Indian Wells Golf Resort. Camp hours are 9 a.m. to noon and activities include arts and crafts, nature hikes, games and more. At night, Camp Oasis transforms into the hippest hang-out around with activities ranging from pillowcase painting to flashlight tag, with lots of music, storytelling and delicious kid-friendly dinners from 6 p.m. to 10 p.m.
Adults can enjoy some playtime too, with unique Palm Springs day spa treatments including the Esmeralda Signature Massage or Spa Garden Massage. Stir Lounge will be open every Friday and Saturday evenings for dancing to a live DJ. The Lobby Bar and Glo Sushi are perfect venues to gather with friends or to revel in a romantic hour.
Over Easter weekend, guests can reserve a “bunny tuck-in” at bedtime, and the Easter Bunny will make an early appearance at breakfast on Saturday to greet the little guest set. Sunday will feature an enormous Easter egg hunt on the resort’s beautiful lawns.
A stay at the resort will be at the center of the action but many local events and attractions complement that perfect getaway. From Fashion Week 2012 and Broadway musicals at McCallum Theatre to a wine and music series at The Garden on El Paseo and animal adventures at The Living Desert, there’s something for everyone in the California desert.
