Whether your idea of a perfect couples’ getaway is to lounge in a private cabana or play a fun game of tennis, La Quinta Resort & Club in Palm Springs has you covered. The stunningly manicured 45 acres could have you lost in love while surrounding you and your SO with breathtaking views of the Santa Rosa Mountains. Lush and verdant gardens, fruit trees and pathways weave around Spanish-style villas and casitas, 41 pools, a world-class spa, PGA West golf courses and more. This luxury resort is a dreamy spot to spend time with someone special for an anniversary, birthday or just because you feel like escaping together. Here’s how to do a luxury couples getaway in La Quinta.


Kick Back in Your Spacious Suite, Villa or Casita

With close to 800 suites, villas and casitas, there’s plenty of space to get close to your special someone. The casitas make a splurge-worthy experience for the couple who wants it all. With private patios, personal hot tubs and exclusive pools, couples can bask in the sun or take a dip while keeping things intimate. The stunning mountain views won’t be the only thing you’re staring at! All guest rooms are spacious and as immaculate as the rest of the property’s grounds. The casitas are styled in a palette of ivory, terra cotta and other natural tones that lend a relaxing ambiance with sprinkles of bright, cheerful color and art that reflect the desert’s unique beauty.

When you’re ready to emerge from your secluded hideaway, head to the resort’s 21-and-up main attraction, the Plunge Pool. Sitting under infinite blue skies among the casitas and palm trees, guests can beat the heat by joining the coolest party in the desert. Aperol has partnered with the resort to host a summer session residency. You can expect vibrant glasses of Italian sunshine to be poured in the form of Aperol Spritz. The effervescent cocktail will energize your spirits and elevate your mood. Endless summer vacation vibes are enhanced by the lively soundtrack with all the hot weather hits playing over the outdoor system. Private cabanas are available to rent and make the perfect place to sip and chill. Lawn games are available for couples who enjoy a little friendly competition.


Sip and Savor

After plunging, you’re sure to work up an appetite, and Morgan’s in the Desert at La Quinta Resort & Club is a staple eatery. We recommend the seasonal watermelon gazpacho with cucumber and micro mint. Both are as refreshing as they sound and pair well with their Summer Cooler, made with Aperol, vodka, pineapple and fresh ginger. The Rich Chill is another delicious summer beverage crafted with Veuve, Chambord, vodka and lemon juice. We also love the Grilled Watermelon Salad. At Twenty6, we love their Indio corn and refreshing strawberry and avocado salad. And if authentic Mexican is the vibe, Adobe Grill has thirst-quenching watermelon margaritas and killer tostadas.

Refresh and rejuvenate your minds and bodies at Spa La Quinta. This state-of-the-art spa uses top products and advanced beauty technologies to deliver noticeable results, an overall sense of calm and an unparalleled wellness experience. The C&E Super Antioxidant and Cryo Facial will have your face glowing like the sun god and goddess you are. Although we love the sun, it can be dry and damaging, so be sure to stop in for all the restoring treatments! Side-by-side treatments are available for you and your babe. Cool down with the Cucumber Melon and Cryo Swedish massage or the cucumber melon body treatment; the cucumber melon mani and pedi should follow up both. Quench your hair while adding bounce and shine with the Summer Blowout with Hydrating Treatment!


Play Pickleball and Tennis Together

A couple who plays together stays together… or something like that. La Quinta Resort is home to pickleball and tennis courts that’ll help you stay active with your better half while bonding over some healthy competition or learning to play a new sport. The resort’s sunken tournament-style center court makes it one of the top tennis resorts in the world, where celebrity and famed players perfect their swings (Novak Djokovic and Maria Sharapova are among those who have played here!). USPTA-certified instructors are available to give lessons to novice or total newbie players. If you prefer something new, try the fastest-growing sport in America–you’ll have eight pickleball courts dedicated to practicing your game. The resort also offers yoga classes, bike rentals and access to a full fitness center.
