You may notice that one of our resorts is proudly sporting a new name, some new signage and a fresh look! But what's it all about?
Upon opening in 1986, the resort was originally named Hyatt Grand Champions Resort, Villas and Spa for its role as host of the famed Newsweek Champions Cup. Now known as BNP Paribas Open, the annual event is the sixth largest tennis tournament in the world. For two decades, the resort played host to an array of celebrities and famous faces, but became best known for the tennis royalty that graced its courts.
As the tennis tournament evolved, the location eventually moved to the Indian Wells Tennis Garden to accommodate a much larger audience. Coupled with the recent, extensive transformation of the resort, this provided an opportune time to rename the property as Hyatt Regency Indian Wells Resort & Spa - a name that highlights the prestigious and exclusive location of Indian Wells, California.
We look forward to sharing more renovation details of the resort's ongoing multi-million dollar renovation as more phases are completed. Until then, check out the new signage, and the property's ariel views - including its famous tennis courts - from then and now:
