Season 16 of The Bachelorette was not filmed in the famed Bachelor mansion, but in a hotel near Palm Springs in California known as La Quinta Resort & Club. We’re giving you a look at where all the drama took place!
It may be strange to see a new season filmed away from the mansion, but due to COVID-19, production in Los Angeles came to a close. The new filming location, a luxury resort stretching 45 acres, serves as the new backdrop for the reality show. With private patios, hundreds of guest rooms, 41 pools and 190,000 square feet of event spaces; there’s no question that La Quinta Resort & Club is a spacious and accommodating replacement for the mansion.
In addition to the large space available and amenities like the swimming pools, the hotel has spas and salons with award-winning treatments and tennis courts where tennis stars have played. So, if you want to fall in the footsteps of Novak Djokovic or Roger Federer, La Quinta Resort & Club may be a good place to begin practicing.
There are other sports related activities to pursue here as well, including golf. The hotel has five champion courses where golf legends have played to make for a one of a kind experience. The courses are unique, as are their restaurants, which all house a variety of items and different atmospheres.
Though The Bachelorette is one of the more recent productions taking place at the hotel, it’s far from the first time the hotel has hosted celebrities. In fact, many celebs and athletes have stayed or visited the resort. Past guests include Shirley Temple and Ginger Rogers.
This season on The Bachelorette, fans can see Clare Crawley, whose whirlwind romance with one of the men has already wrapped up, and now Tayshia Adams, finding love in the intimate setting of the resort.
La Quinta Resort & Club is a great option for the show because it has a clear view of the Santa Rosa Mountains, 53 hot tubs, and cozy settings with desert-inspired decor for The Bachelorette-style one-on-one dates.
Due to the pandemic, the cast of the show are took necessary safety precautions, including: testing for COVID-19 with a medical crew on set, wearing masks, and maintaining social distance. The resort itself is also taking precautions by having a limited number of rooms available or enforcing stricter cleaning guidelines.
If you want to stay at the hotel where the show was filmed, it’s now available for guests! Check out their website for rooms that start at $204 a night. The Bachelorette airs Tuesdays at 8 p.m. EST, so you can also see La Quinta featured on screen right from home.
