It doesn’t take long upon arrival to realize this is one of the more stylish destination hotels in United States. The Ritz Carlton is located in Palm Springs California. It is a luxurious oasis in the middle of undisturbed desert, its location only makes first impressions even more unforgettable.
This property is very special. It is surrounded by magnificent mountains and abundant paths for those who love to keep up an outdoorsy lifestyle. If you’re looking for a more relaxed stay this is the place to chill.
Before arriving to the hotel we experienced some of the high end shopping experiences of Palm Springs. There is a lot to do, see and places to eat in town. Once we arrived to the hotel we loved the feeling of open air freshness combined with the beautiful décor.
Our room was very spacious compared to the normal US standard for this kind of hotel. The view from the balcony was really wonderful and included manicured gardens, many fireplaces, an adults only pool and the expansive Coachella Valley.
We particularly enjoyed the wellbeing facilities at the Spa, the prices for treatments are really high but It is something expected in this country. Treatment rooms and wet areas are located in a separate building. There is an outdoor Jacuzzi from where one can enjoy the beauty of the desert.
Restaurants are quite good; the food quality is of the highest standard. Breakfast (that was included with our room rate) was really excellent with many healthy options to order a la carte and the regular items of the buffet.
Every morning we explored the some of the many trails around. Hiking brought fascinating views of the whole town from atop the mountains. The panorama revealed a slew of golf courses that make Palm Springs a must visit destination for those who love the sport as well.
Rates at the Ritz Carlton Ranch Mirage can be steep, particularly at during peak seasons. There are weeks during the year where prices are quite attractive, during those days there are not many guests and the ambiance is more relaxed. Overall we enjoyed our experienced at the hotel and we will not hesitate to return as soon as possible.
