The summers in La Quinta can be hot, but the historic La Quinta Resort & Club has a plan to keep guests cool even on the hottest days. Dive into one of the 41 temperature-controlled pools, watch a movie under the stars as cooling evening breezes blow or sip an ice-cold beverage. At the La Quinta Resort & Club, “Chill is more than a temperature—it’s a state of being.”
1 | “Après Ski” the La Quinta Way Summer Activities in La Quinta
“Après Ski” is French for “after skiing,” and officially, it is defined as “social activity at a ski lodge after a day of skiing.” La Quinta Resort & Club is expanding that idea for the summer, but with swimming—hence “Après Swim.” Enjoy a day of golf, tennis or hiking, and meet your friends at the adult-only plunge pool. “The idea is to have a fun day and meet for a drink to hang out with friends,” said Chris George, Director of Marketing.
Native Knowledge: La Quinta Resort & Club is a “timeless Hollywood hideaway set on 45 lush acres of vibrant colored gardens and pathways.”
2 | Plunge Into Veuve Clicquot Summer Activities in La Quinta
Veuve Clicquot has partnered with the La Quinta Resort & Club to transform the Plunge Pool into the Après swim lounge. Guests can relish champagne tasting flights, signature cocktails and lite bites. Or, they can rent a private cabana and have a bucket of Veuve Clicquot delivered right to them.
Native Knowledge: The La Quinta Hotel, now the La Quinta Resort & Club, opened December 29, 1926. The first nine-hole golf course in Greater Palm Springs was located on the property. Green fees, at that time, were $1.
3 | Good VYBES Only Summer Activities in La Quinta
Delight in a 50 or 80-minute massage with calming and balancing CBD Care Garden oil. Sample VYBES organic hemp water, another CBD product, with flavors like blueberry mint, strawberry lavender and ginger peach. Follow your massage with a full pour of your favorite VYBES water.
4 | Seasons Eatings
You can’t forget about the food! Make sure to stop by Morgan’s in the desert, the signature restaurant at the La Quinta Resort & Club. “Our culinary team is using ingredients that are seasonal and shine [during] this time of year,” explained George. The main ingredient for the June menu is cherry. If you are a guest in July, the featured ingredient will be peach. Seared Peach & Cured King Salmon Salad will be one of the notable dishes in July.
