Destination ZENYARA®

A tropical mirage come to life in southern California

Set within walking distance from the famous Coachella music festival in Indio, California, Zenyara® is a desert oasis that has garnered a spot on the roster of venues for the festival. Hosting the likes of Adidas, Rolls-Royce, and A-list celebrities, for many, this is the place to see and be seen.

With a mix of Caribbean Resort meets Disney’s Jungle Cruise, Zenyara® is the physical construct of a tropical mirage come to life. The estate is surrounded by azure-blue water at every angle, and its architecture perfectly frames the surrounding mountain ranges.

Boasting 11 bedrooms, full bar, beach bar, and pool bar, the property has all the amenities of a private resort. Guests enjoy tennis, pickleball, and basketball courts; an array of water toys, including kayaks, jet skis, and paddleboards; and a spa with steam bath, plunge pools, and massage rooms. 

Over four acres of a “lake” was designed primarily as irrigation for the vast array of agricultural land on the site. After all, ZENYARA is a working ranch, which harvests dates and alfalfa, and is home to numerous horses and a modest zoo. 

The design team pushed the limits of reality to make something unimaginable, and the rewards are evident at every turn of this sprawling resort-size paradise.
