When it comes to the multitude of premiere pickleball destinations dotting the United States, the West Coast is a prime spot for the sport. Known for beautiful beaches and tourist attractions, pickleball is making a name for itself as one of the top activities for travelers to this area.
At the forefront of the West Coast’s pickleball popularity wave is La Quinta Resort & Club, a Curio Collection by Hilton, sporting gracious accommodations for guests, 41 climate-controlled pools, 21 tennis courts, eight pickleball courts and a spa. Just 30 minutes from Joshua Tree National Park, La Quinta Resort & Club is quickly becoming one of California’s most popular destinations for active and outdoorsy travelers.
The resort is well-known for its elevated accommodations, equipped with everything guests need after a rigorous day on the pickleball courts. From Spanish-style casitas to spacious villas and poolside suites, guests have a wide variety of accommodation options. Many of the rooms and suites are equipped with a fireplace and separate living space, and all guests enjoy free Wi-Fi, a TV, a coffee maker, and complimentary toiletries.
Although La Quinta Resort & Club’s accommodations are some of the best on the West Coast, the top-notch amenities continue outdoors with world-class tennis and pickleball courts, golf courses, poolside relaxation and premium spa treatments. Voted one of the top tennis resorts in the world, La Quinta employs an expert team of USPTA-certified and IPTPA-certified instructors for tennis and pickleball players. There are eight pickleball courts available on-site and although reservations are required to utilize the courts, lessons, clinics and open play time are available for $25 per court per hour. There’s a reason La Quinta Resort & Club is one of the top pickleball destinations in the country!
After a hot day on the courts, the resort offers guests ample opportunity to relax and cool off in more than 40 on-site pools, from private pools just steps from the villas to the main pool overlooking the Santa Rosa Mountains. There are also casita pools offering pool-side beverages and ice cream, and lap pools with direct access to the resort’s spa villas. Speaking of spas, an abundance of services are available, from body treatments to skin care, salon services and more.
Finally, La Quinta Resort & Club is known for some of the finest dining situated under the Santa Rosa Mountains. From classic American cuisine and expertly made cocktails to hand-selected Wagyu beef, the resort’s five restaurants bring a variety of dining options.
