The Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival attracts over 100 000 people around the world every year. But with plenty of newfound bans on short-term vacation rentals in and around the festival grounds, it only makes sense that new resorts would pop up to take in all those tourists.
This has led to the development of a new luxurious resort called Hotel Indigo, reported Forbes. Designed by Kristi Hanson, Carrier Johnson, and Elizabeth Blau and owned by InterContinental Hotels Group, this resort was also developed by anonymous celebrity backers, Los Angeles real estate investor Stuart Rubin, and L.A. entertainment lawyer Gary Stiffelman.
The 35-acre 250-room project includes 51 casitas and an 11-acre entertainment area that will host several different events. The new resort will also offer an 11-acre grass-covered entertainment space to hold future music events.
One of the biggest highlights of the resort will be the saltwater pool that will surely help concert-goers cool down from the brutal triple-digit heatwaves. This giant pool offers more than some wet and wild fun as it includes a large cocktail lounge, a DJ stage, and a fashion-show catwalk. In addition, the entire pool area will be surrounded by huge casitas that range from two to six bedrooms and will offer both private entrances and bathrooms, as well as living rooms that can host entertainment.

While it all sounds incredible, Hotel Indigo offers a whole lot more for concert-goers and regular tourists alike. The resort will also include a spa, a gym, yoga studio, and multiple restaurants.
The resort will open in fall 2018 and will be permitted to host events until 4 a.m— which is not normally seen in this area. Don't worry, however, a 12-foot high sound-proof wall around the concert space will fix any noise problems for those who aren't looking to party the night away.
While arguably groundbreaking, Hotel Indigo is not the only big development coming for Coachella fans. Many more new hotels will be opening to accommodate the surge in tourists visiting the area.
Coachella is a vast desert near Salton Sea, located about 45 minutes from Palm Springs, California. The festival itself takes place at the Empire Polo Club in Indio, California.
With more people trekking to Coachella each year, the need for more accommodations has convinced developers to create this luxurious resort close to the area. Hotel Indigo is just a small taste of what's to come not just Coachella fans, but for tourists wanting to visit the area for other reasons. It will take time for all these resorts to be completed, but there's no doubt that the end results will be successful and breathtaking.
