Rancho Las Palmas Resort & Spa™Is No Ordinary Spring Vacation


Fun-Filled Water Complex, Parent Programs and Spring Break Special Make It the Ideal Spring Retreat

RANCHO MIRAGE – February 26, 2009 – Spring break is not just a break for children and Rancho Las Palmas Resort & Spa knows just how to cater to both kids and parents to ensure a pleasant and relaxing break for all.  The Resort has implemented a series of programs that allow adults time together, kids time away and most importantly - time to all come together as a family.

For the Kids

Kidtopia Night Camp is the perfect way for kids to enjoy some time away from mom and dad, doing the things they like best. Whether its crafts or fun and games, children will enjoy a supervised evening of frolicking away from the watchful eyes of their parents.  Evenings include dinner. Daily programs are available at Kidtopia, the new club for kids ages 4-12.  Teen activities include wellness activities at the Spa or hanging out in the game room complete with billiards, Wii, foosball, air hockey, dance-dance revolution, computers and more. Splashtopia, the coolest water complex (and only of its kind!) in the desert, is another big draw for kids at the resort. This kid-friendly pool area offers unmatched water fun in the form of water slides, a lazy river, a cliffside Jacuzzi, expansive swimming pool, water play-zone, and, for the youngest tykes, a sandy beach.


For the Adults

While the kids are being taken care of and entertained, adults can enjoy a variety of options together including:  Wednesday night “Spa Under the Stars” - relaxing outdoor at the Spa with music, appetizers and champagne, then indulging a specially priced spa treatment; or special priced Thursday night happy hour at the stylish bluEmber with half priced martinis and a delicious tapas buffet enjoyed while listening to live acoustic music by The John Stanley King Band, a local favorite.  Other specialty evenings include Wednesday evening half price bottles of wine and appetizers, and “Friday’s at Five” sponsored by KJAZZ and featuring live entertainment by The Smooth Brothers on the bluEmber patio, a romantic setting with large open fire pits.


For the Family

Family theme nights at Splashtopia, the desert’s largest water complex, provide an ideal opportunity for families to dine together in the casual outdoor setting. Whether for BBQ night, Italian night or the Beach Party extravaganza, families can plan dinner together by the pool, then stay and enjoy a “dive-in” movie in the warmth of a desert night. Other fun family time can be had at the family golf and tennis clinics or at Rancho’s local tradition of Sunday Brunch at bluEmber.


Spring Getaway 30th Anniversary Special

Rancho Las Palmas has extended its 30th anniversary special through the end of March, so families can save on their spring break vacation too! Guests who book between now and March 31, 2009, for any stay in 2009, will receive a 30 percent savings on all golf, spa, dining, Kidtopia and more during their visit. The stay must be taken in 2009. The 30 percent savings is valid for overnight resort guests and activities must be booked at time of reservation. For complete details and reservations, visit or call 1-800-423-1195.


Following a recent $35 million makeover, Rancho Las Palmas offers a fresh, new look, but remains the desert hot spot. The resort is an ideal getaway for families who will enjoy the exciting, new water complex Splashtopia, featuring two acres of family family-friendly features, including two 100-foot water slides, 425-foot lazy river, a cliffside Jacuzzi, expansive swimming pool, water play-zone, and, for the youngest tykes, a sandy beach. The property also recently opened Kidtopia, a kids camp designed to actively engage children through play including scavenger hunts, nature walks, cooking, painting and much more.  Couples can lounge by the tranquil adult pool, indulge in relaxing spa treatment or enjoy an early morning round of golf or game of tennis. As night falls, they can share a romantic dining experience at the stylish new bluEmber restaurant.
