La Quinta Resort & Club attracts scores of visitors, all with their hearts set on nothing more than checking in and chilling out. There’s no better way to refresh than by dipping into any one of the resort’s 41 sparkling — and spectacular —outdoor swimming pools.
This summer, dive into La Quinta Resort’s signature Summer Chill program for the perfect getaway — no schedules, no promises to keep and 27 perfectly chilled pools to choose from.
From the moment you set eyes on the expansive 45-acre property, relaxation is a given during sun-drenched stays at La Quinta Resort. The hotel, now a member of Waldorf Astoria Hotels and Resorts, opened in 1926 with just 23 private Spanish-style casita accommodations. Its 41 swimming pools join an enviable roster of luxurious offerings that includes access to championship-quality golf courses, decadent dining options, pampering spa services, tennis and live entertainment.
With shade structures and posh outdoor furnishings that surround these upscale pools, you are assured a perfect swim no matter the season of your visit. Pool chillers and heaters keep the water at comfortable, steady temperatures for year-round enjoyment. Whether you prefer the size and amenities available at the resort’s main pool — the largest on the property — or the quiet intimacy of one of the smaller options, the good news is you can have it all in one resort.
Both families and couples can enjoy the main pool with restaurant and bar services, a splash pad, toddler pool, playground and amazing mountain vistas. The resort’s 21-and-up Plunge Pool features private cabana daybeds, bar service and music.
Although Hollywood royalty once lounged beside what is now the retro-chic Plunge Pool, these days a vibrant crowd can both relax and mingle over cocktails and music from the on-site DJ. Meanwhile, a three-lane outdoor pool in an enclosed courtyard beckons active-minded guests who want to log a few laps underneath a scenic canopy of palm trees and bougainvilleas.
All 41 of La Quinta Resort’s pools are maintained for resort guests and members only. For the ultimate luxury, there are five suites for those guests who wish to have their own private pools — each with its own private yard and hot spa. Imagine stepping outside your door and into the refreshing comfort of your very own pool. It’s all possible at La Quinta Resort. Come on in. The water’s fine.
