La Quinta spa set for opening

LA QUINTA -- The historical La Quinta Resort is scheduled to unveil its huge new spa next month.

The 23,000-square-foot facility, adjacent to the resort's lavish tennis center, will offer guests a wide range of services that will include aerobics, skin services, massages, hairdressing, manicures and pedicures as well as the use of exercise equipment.

The spa will add a new dimension to the facility, according to La Quinta's management.

Located 19 miles southeast of Palm Springs, the resort's bungalows have provided the ideal escape for the Hollywood and business elite for more than 70 years. Its 640 Spanish casita-style accommodations are arrayed amid 45 acres of orange, lemon and grapefruit groves and towering palm trees.

The resort features 25 private pools and 39 whirlpool spas plus a two-story shopping and dining facility. Ten of its 24 tennis courts of varying surfaces are lighted for night play.

Resort guests have access to four premium golf layouts at the TPC Stadium and Tournament courses at PGA West.
