Chill Out This Summer at La Quinta in Palm Springs

Posted on 21st May, 2024

Summertime and living’s easy…especially in Palm Springs, California!

The desert has a tangible magic that you can feel all year, but the summer months are extra special: dinner reservations aren’t necessary, the pools are free, and the normal crowds have subsided, leaving a laid-back, happy vibe. 

The La Quinta Resort & Club is the perfect place to kick back and keep cool in the Coachella Valley. Check out the best things to do at the Resort this summer: 

Relax with Your Favorite People 

Make a splash at the Main Pool with our exciting swim-up movie nights, or gather under the desert stars for a delightful ice cream social. Beyond the resort, explore El Paseo, the “Rodeo Drive of the Desert” in nearby Palm Desert. Here, charming adobe buildings house a treasure trove of luxury stores, delectable fine dining options, and captivating art galleries.

Keep it Cool at the Pool(s)

Dive into endless poolside fun with La Quinta Resort’s 41 sparkling pools, each offering a unique way to stay chill.

Make a splash with the whole crew at the Main Pool! Enjoy convenient poolside service, private cabanas for relaxation, and a dedicated children’s area for endless laughter. Plus, soak up stunning views of the Santa Rosa Mountains while you unwind.

Craving a more secluded experience? Unwind in the private pool or jacuzzi of one of our luxurious suites and enjoy the ultimate escape.

Treat Yourself to a Spa Day

*Cue the eye cucumbers* Spa La Quinta is ready with a series of specialized spa treatments that are perfect for keeping cool and kicking back all summer long. Relax with water therapy featuring Lemi’s Aemotio Vichy showers with a Citrus Escape body treatment, or get glowing with a HydraFacial. 


Stay Mindful

Center yourself at La Quinta’s peaceful yoga retreat. Find your perfect practice with a variety of regularly scheduled yoga and fitness classes designed to suit all levels. Prefer to stay in? No problem! Stream a class directly to your room with Breathwrk, our on-demand partner. And if you discover a class you love, La Quinta guests receive a special discount on their annual Breathwrk membership, allowing you to continue your practice long after your stay.

Replenish The Soul

Back by popular demand, the Taste of Summer series features seasonal prix fixe menus across La Quinta’s restaurants. From casual to fine dining, each restaurant’s menu includes a starter, an entree, and a decadent dessert. 

Try the Gazpacho De Sandia at Adobe Grille or get romantic with a fine dining experience at Morgan’s in the Desert. Morgan’s Taste of Summer menu highlights their refreshing Tomato Salad as a starter, with a choice of Basil Linguine or the Snake River Flat Iron Steak as an entree. Twenty6’s prix fixe menu includes their famous self-named Greek Salad as a starter and finishes sweet with a Crème Brûlée.

Take a Swing 

Spend your mornings in Palm Springs sharpening your skills over a game of golf, tennis, or pickleball. Enjoy the courts and courses with fewer crowds than the rest of the year. Our helpful hydration stations, complete with wet towels, will keep you and the family cool as you play. Tip: View the summer maintenance schedule here before booking your tee times.
