For the first time since 2010, Ritz-Carlton has opened one of its luxury hotels in Rancho Mirage.

The 86th Ritz-Carlton property sits on a 650-foot bluff overlooking the Coachella Valley with 224 rooms.

The Spa houses 25,000 square feet of 15 treatment rooms, fitness center, movement studios, private whirlpools, rain and Vichy showers, eucalyptus-infused steam and sauna facilities, an outdoor meditation mesa, and an outdoor co-ed whirlpool with waterfall and mountain views.

Other resort amenities include three swimming pools, a comprehensive Ritz Kids program and multi-room Ritz Kids center with its own children’s movie theatre, 16,000 square-feet of contemporary indoor meeting space, and 15,000 square-feet of outdoor event space incorporating two expansive cliff-side lawns.

For golf enthusiasts, the hotel has secured guest access to courses and clubs in the Valley, while nearby tennis and hiking on 20 miles of mountain trails awaits.
