La Quinta Resort & Club, A Waldorf Astoria Resort will serve as the backdrop for the entire upcoming season of The Bachelorette, which premieres tonight on ABC.
The La Quinta Resort is a Waldorf Astoria resort located in the Coachella Valley, surrounded by the Santa Rosa Mountains of Eisenhower Drive in La Quinta, California!
According to a La Quinta spokesperson, since opening in 1926, the property has become known as the “original desert hideaway” for the Hollywood elite — from stars like Greta Garbo and Clark Gable to Dorothy Arzner and Frank Capra — looking to relax and recharge. More recently, it’s become a go-to location for film and television productions.
The camera-ready resort, which is set to be the location of another production — this time a movie — later this year, is well-positioned for big shoots because of how spread out it is. Productions are able to buy out a huge block of rooms that can be completely separated from the rest of the resort for a shoot. There is a lot of open space and different areas to work with within the property.
Because of COVID-19, production for season 16 of The Bachelorette needed to be adjusted in order to keep the show’s crew, host, and contestants safe. That’s why a single resort was chosen as the location for the entire season. La Quinta provided accommodations for the cast and crew while also serving as the setting for all the romance and drama. This particular production had the entire resort to itself.
Though this season of the show will not include multiple getaways to destinations that are repeatedly referred to as “the perfect place to fall in love,” viewers will still get to enjoy a heaping dose of escapism as they watch thanks to all that La Quinta has to offer.
The resort’s 45 acres feature 41 climate-controlled swimming pools, a spa, championship-caliber golf and tennis facilities, a fitness center and spin studio, event venues, five restaurants, and a shopping center.
The cast of season 16 first had to quarantine solo before getting the chance to come together and get to know Clare better, which means the La Quinta Resort & Club was closed off to outsiders.
Now, booking is once again open and viewers can absolutely follow in Clare’s footsteps.
