Guaranteed Chill

By Amy Yerrington

If you are looking for one spot where all your cares can melt away, well then don’t worry because I chased it down for you! “Chill” is just another day at the office at La Quinta Resort & Club. In fact, I dare you not to relax, recharge and clear your mind here.

From the moment we drove into this paradise, I felt like I was in another city entirely. Nestled in the foothills of the Santa Rosa Mountains, La Quinta Resort & Club is known as the original hideaway for Hollywood’s elite. No surprise there. You truly feel hidden away in a paradise that gives you just about anything you would want: 41 pools, 9 championship golf courses, 7 delicious restaurants and my personal favorite—a world-class spa.

Seriously, this is my definition of heaven on earth—and it would be my second home if only the resort would let me stay. You travel the grounds asking yourself where you are, but knowing you definitely don’t want to leave. You instantly feel like royalty.

Along with enormous, flowing golf courses and water and gardens everywhere is Spa La Quinta. The spa uses natural ingredients found right on the fruit tree-filled resort grounds. Whether you choose a body scrub, Vichy shower, massage or body wrap, they work tirelessly to bring you an unparalleled experience that equals total relaxation. My personal favorite was the personal outdoor tub relaxation areas. Oh, remember to bring the kids and pets to the spa—they have their very own spa programs!

At the end of the day, just bask in the tranquility of this perfect paradise. I only have three words for you: best—day--ever!
