Our favorite part about checking into the Miramonte Indian Wells Resort & Spa is the coin you're given. Toss it in the wishing well before starting your treatment (aka, photo opp number one). Now that you've made your wish, indulge in a hot stone massage, oxygen facial, a wine bath (aka photo opp number two) or an essential-oil-infused rain shower (aka, photo opp number three).

Pick a mat and make yourself comfortable while listening to the piercing (in a good way) sounds of crystal water bowls playing.
