Rancho Las Palmas Resort & Spa Knows What a Girl Wants


New Girlfriend Getaway Package Has All the Essentials for the Perfect Escape


Palm Springs, Calif. - September 2009 - While summer is all about family play at Rancho Las Palmas Resort & Spa, the fall season ushers in a cool and sophisticated vibe perfect for grown-up girlfriend getaways. This autumn, the resort is introducing a Girlfriend Getaway Package starting at $389 per night that shows Rancho Las Palmas is "in the know" when it comes to what a girl wants.
"Industry research tell us that women want an experience where they can relax, bond, spa, dine, shop and have fun that is also within everyone's budget," said Josh Herman, director of marketing for the resort. "The Rancho Las Palmas Girlfriend Getaway takes all these elements and packages them in a getaway that is easy, economical and fun."
The Girlfriend Getaway Package at Rancho Las Palmas includes:
1) Quality Time with Friends. The package starts with two connecting rooms (double occupancy) for just $389 per night with option for suite upgrades. Elegantly appointed rooms include French doors that open to private patios and balconies, plush down comforters and custom duvets, slab granite countertops, beautiful millwork cabinetry and 42-inch plasma televisions. 
2) Champagne Wishes. On arrival, girlfriends will find a bottle of sparkling wine to kick off the getaway in high fashion.
3) Play or Relax. The Girlfriend Getaway package letsladies lounge in style in a private pool cabana each day at Splashtopia, the resort's aquatic playground complete with lazy river and water slides. Or, for those looking for a more serene environment, there's the adult-only tranquility pool.  
4) No Strings Attached. The package includes complimentary access for each guest to the facilities at Spa Las Palmas, including the scenic spa pool, for the length of stay, with no purchase of a treatment necessary.
5) Guilt-Free Spending. Each package includes a $100 dining credit for use at any of the resort's dining establishments including bluEmber, the resort's signature restaurant. In addition to a delicious menu, bluEmber showcases a stellar lineup of evening entertainment five nights a week on its patio- a "sure hit" with any girlfriend group.
7) A Personal Touch. The Girlfriend Getaway Package comes with a dedicated girlfriend getaway VIP coordinator to assist with any additional planning or activities. To make it easy, the property has a full menu of activities and services for girlfriends to choose from with items such as:

  • On-property programs from mixology to wine tasting
  • In-room chick flick movies complimented by the chef's sinful fudge brownies and cupcakes
  • Pedicures and martinis at Yamaguchi salon
  • Car service to local night clubs
