The original desert hideaway, La Quinta Resort & Club, has been a haven to Hollywood stars since it first opened in 1926. Now a multimillion dollar restoration has revived the luster of this iconic resort with a fresh, modern look in line with the property’s storied history and serene desert surroundings. Welcome to the re-release of a classic.
La Quinta Resort & Club and PGA WEST, a member of Waldorf Astoria Hotels and Resorts, is a renowned desert destination. Set on 45 lush acres of vibrantly colored gardens and pathways, the stunning property features 620 California hacienda-style casitas and suites and 98 villas, clustered around 41 pools and 53 hot spas. The 23,000-square-foot Spa La Quinta is the winner of four 2013 SpaFinder awards, offering the famed HydraFacial experience as well as a full menu of relaxing treatments. The resort, with 23 tennis courts, has been voted one of the top tennis resorts in the world. Exceptional cuisine is offered at Morgan’s in the desert; TWENTY6; Adobe Grill; Ernie’s at PGA WEST, and elsewhere throughout the resort.
Known as the Western Home of Golf in America, PGA WEST is home to five top-rated public golf courses, including the TPC® Stadium Course, and four private courses, all designed by golf legends Arnold Palmer, Jack Nicklaus, Pete Dye, Greg Norman and Tom Weiskopf. In 2013, the resort also opened the PGA WEST Golf Academy, where golfers of all levels can learn to play like a pro.
The resort-wide renovation encompasses upgrades of all guest casitas, followed by a redesign of the villas, main lobby, and public spaces, and a re-imagined pool experience. The ambitious project also infuses the resort’s lush 45 acres with a bevy of additional bougainvilleas, roses, and citrus trees, which guests have long enjoyed while strolling the grounds. Drawing inspiration from the resort’s colorful desert environs, Los Angeles – based firm Smith & Firestone has created a residentialstyle design for the resort’s guest rooms and luxury suites.
In addition, the resort’s legendary 41 pools — including the main pool, an adult pool and the tapestry of intimate pools and hot spas clustered around the casitas — are receiving fresh new decking, contemporary shade structures, and water temperature regulators for a brisk summer splash.
The quintessential Southern California desert resort, La Quinta Resort & Club and PGA WEST provides a fully renovated luxury experience for the discerning traveler.
