We can’t say enough great things about the Sands Hotel and Spa! They're staff is absolutely wonderful and a pleasure to work with. They assisted my fiancé in guiding and helping him plan our engagement. They made sure every detail down to the rose petals, champagne, and timing were taken care of. The Sands Hotel team went above and beyond to make sure we had a very memorable weekend. We will definitely be back. The hotel itself is gorgeous, our room was adorable, the food and service is amazing. I highly recommend! ♥️

Absolute Five-star luxury Boutique Hotel for the Palm Springs area. For my Birthday weekend, I stayed at the Martyn Lawrence Bullard-designed “Sands Hotel and Spa”, recipient of Condé Nast’s “Hot List”. The service was outstanding, with full attention to detail. The rooms were well-appointed, along w/ complimentary chilled birthday-champagne upon room arrival with a hand-written card from the General Manager. Very impressive decor felt like a cool Mediterranean oasis; My room had a private outdoor patio w/ cushioned sofa, spacious bathroom w/ shower, TV, refrigerator, iPhone charge stations, etc. Outside, the pool area offered chaise lounges (complimentary) and Cabanas (for nominal extra charge), in-house light dining restaurant w/ full-service bar. The subtle Pink-Mediterranean atmosphere is the ultimate boutique hotel experience for the Palm Springs area, conveniently located within minutes of Indian Wells’ fine dining and shopping, including Lululemon, Ralph Lauren, & Saks. What more could anyone ask for?

Staying here for 2 weeks quarantining and working remotely during Covid. My stay has been fantastic and I highly recommend the hotel, especially during these turbulent times. It feels very safe - sanitizer, masks, gloves, touchless experiences, no hallways or elevators instead you're outside anytime you're around other guests. The hotel is my favorite in the Palm Springs area. Every room is wonderful - large bathrooms, lots of light, very clean, good closets, and insanely comfortable beds. The rooms are quiet and dark so you'll get a great nights sleep. If you upgrade rooms, you'll have a big standalone bathtub! But the best part about The Sands is the service. Nate the manager is amazing. He hustles all over the property all day long and has built a wonderful team - everyone who works here is kind and helpful. You can tell this is an extremely well-managed hotel. The food at the hotel is the best in town. Highly recommend.

Love the Moroccan Riyadh meets Palm Springs motel look! Great service, yummy food, fair prices. We were staying down the road at a luxury property for four times the price, but found the property didn’t meet our expectations. On the recommendation of a friend we came here and so glad we did!
