Make a Splash This Summer at This Desert Retreat in the Heart of La Quinta
The Coachella Valley has been a favorite vacation destination for over a century, and its popularity only continues to rise. One of the brightest stars in the valley is La Quinta Resort & Club, admired for its Spanish-style charm, rich history, lush grounds and sparkling pools. With 45 manicured acres of gardens and lawns dotted with citrus trees throughout, five championship golf courses (including the legendary PGA West course), 41 climate-controlled pools and a swanky spa, it’s no wonder why this luxury resort lives rent-free in our heads long after we’ve checked out. Here are four reasons La Quinta Resort & Club is the destination of summer.
A Taste of Summer
A foodie’s paradise, La Quinta Resort is home to six on-site restaurants, making it great for guests who don’t want to travel far for a bite. And this year, the resort is running a Taste of Summer promotion, which features three-course prix-fixe menus at each of its dining concepts. The always-fresh and locally sourced Morgan’s in the Desert is the resort’s signature restaurant, serving up contemporary California fare inspired by the bounty of the Coachella Valley. Take advantage of the three-course menu ($50 per person), which includes a Mediterranean Baby Gem salad to start, a 10-ounce Snake River Farm flat iron steak as your entree and a summer fruit crème brûlée for dessert.
Modern restaurant Twenty6 offers more valley-to-table food and a pre-fixe menu ($30 per person) of Panzanella Salad (bread and tomato salad), lemon pepper chicken and tiramisu al limoncello. However, if you find yourself in the mood for some high-end Mexican, head to Adobe Grill, whose pre-fixe menu ($32 per person) includes a Gazpacho de Sandia (chilled watermelon soup), your choice of chicken fajitas or enchiladas verdes and flan for dessert!
Take a Dip
La Quinta Resort & Club has a whopping 41 pools to take a dip in! Each one is preset to a comfortable temperature that won’t take your breath away when you take a refreshing plunge. The main attraction is a family-friendly affair with enough space for kids to splash around and parents to lounge nearby peacefully. Private cabanas ready to rent make a perfect place to store family gear, supplies and snacks, especially during the Dive-In movie nights! That’s right, grab your favorite inflatable raft and enjoy the show. Poolside service is available to provide your crew with food, drinks and frozen cocktails to make vacationing as effortless as possible. More private oases are sprinkled throughout the property for intimate swims and private float sessions.
Seasonal Spa Specials
For an elite experience that blends the world’s best skin-care and advanced beauty technologies, unwind and indulge in a spa service that will ignite your senses. This summer brings new ingredients for pampering to Spa La Quinta, such as the 50-minute Cucumber Melon and Cryo Swedish Massage, which is as refreshing and soothing as it sounds! Pro tip: add the C&E Super Antioxidant and Cryo Facial for an extra layer of rejuvenation. If you’re looking for a quicker way to revive your vibe, the Summer Blowout With Hydrating Treatment is for you: 60 minutes to soft, silky and voluminous hair starting at $85 on Tuesday through Thursday and $95 on Saturday and Sunday.
The Whole Package
Escape the heat and swap ordinary for extraordinary luxury, unparalleled views and an a la carte vacation tailored to you and what you want to do. La Quinta Resort & Club has all the elements to make your stay as exciting or relaxing as possible. Lounging in a private cabana, teeing off on a world-class course or dining on locally sourced dishes—whatever you choose to do and whoever you decide to do it with, La Quinta Resort & Club has you covered. For the summer, the resort is exclusively offering a $40 daily spa credit for each guest (maximum two adults) and a $100 daily resort credit to use towards tennis, pickleball and dining for anyone who books a stay by Aug. 31, 2023 and stays by Sept. 15, 2023.
