Hyatt Regency Indian Wells Resort & Spa completed the renovation of its Indian Wells Conference Center. The project is part of the ongoing $21 million property-wide transformation.

The conference center features 27,000 square feet of indoor function space and two outdoor terraces and is situated on 45 acres of landscape in the heart of the Coachella Valley.

The refreshed conference facilities blend California cool with elements that harken back to the resort’s original Moroccan-inspired design and add a compelling new layer to the resort’s 88,000 square feet of total indoor and outdoor meetings and events spaces, complete with terraces and lawns surrounded by golf and mountain views.

Adding an energizing flair to meetings and events, the resort’s new executive chef, Eric LeClair–who joins the property from Hyatt Regency Minneapolis and brings nearly 20 years of culinary expertise to his new role–has introduced a range of creative food and beverage activities.

Chef LeClair’s offerings include elevated food trucks, snow cone parties and barbecue luaus, and complement the new spaces with equally unique and memorable group dining experiences.

“For more than three decades, this iconic resort has attracted meeting professionals from around the world who are drawn to its impressive events facilities, culinary programming, sophisticated accommodations, spacious grounds, and unwavering dedication to creating a seamless, intuitive experience,” said Mike Waddell, general manager, Hyatt Regency Indian Wells Resort & Spa.

“With this property-wide transformation, we are positioning Hyatt Regency Indian Wells Resort & Spa for a new generation of business-meets-leisure travelers and taking the Southern California desert meeting experience to new heights.”

In addition to the elevated meeting and event spaces, the resort recently debuted renovated Penthouse Suites and new guest room Bungalows, which are equipped with high-touch amenities including private courtyard fire pits or plunge pools.

Scheduled for completion in early 2020, the upgrades to Hyatt Regency Indian Wells Resort & Spa will also include a relaunched signature restaurant, a refreshed lobby and market experience and new water adventure features.

Joining its seven pools, including an adults-only pool and children’s pools, and poolside cabanas, the property will debut a lazy river and 30-foot dueling water slides.
