The SBE Group is expanding its famed Delano brand into the California desert, with ambitious plans to open a new Delano Hotel in the Coachella Valley. Scheduled to open in 2022, the stunning Delano Hotel & Residences in Indian Wells will include 154 hotel rooms and 59 condos.
Home to the famed Coachella Music Festival and the extremely popular Masters Tennis Tournament, the area has experienced a massive influx of visitors who often travel over an hour in congested traffic from neighboring Palm Springs to the many high profile events taking place in the valley. With an increase of younger millennial consumers, SBE is hoping its $85 million project will create a wave of new energy for the city and offer new options for travelers. The area is ripe for second-home buyers from Canada and Southern California and is already seeing an influx of new developments including a planned 140-room Montage Hotel in neighboring La Quinta that will also offer residential golf villas for sale and a 200-room Pendry in La Quinta that will add furnished residential condos to its resort.
