Thanks to a spectacular concert venue at The Show at Agua Caliente Resort, Rancho Mirage is the place to be for musicians and music lovers. In fact, Sting just announced that he’s stopping by the resort with his 57th and 9th Tour on February 11, 2017. Other concerts scheduled for this winter include Huey Lewis & the News on December 31, Steven Tyler and the Loving Mary Band on January 21 and Air Supply on February 10.
If you’re planning to make the trek to the desert to see one of these concerts, you might as well plan to make a weekend out of it and book a room too. Luckily, Rancho Mirage has no shortage of incredible places to stay and is home to four beautiful resorts with first class entertainment, fine dining restaurants and an array of other amazing amenities that attract visitors from near and far. Here are the reasons why you should book your stay at each of the big four resorts in Rancho Mirage:
Booking one of Agua Caliente’s gorgeous rooms only makes sense if you’re going to be checking out one of the concerts at The Show. You’ll enjoy the convenience of never having to leave the property as the resort also includes an assortment of other activities, such as hundreds of slot machines and table games in the casino and delicious dining options. You can even treat yourself to a relaxing massage in the Sunstone Spa.
Perhaps you want to add a bit of relaxation to your weekend getaway. The Ritz-Carlton is the perfect resort to choose if you’re looking to balance your night out with rejuvenating spa treatments the next day. The Ritz-Carlton boasts a wide selection of spa treatments set within a lovely hillside location. From its vantage point high above the valley, you can enjoy a sweeping panorama while you escape from the hustle and bustle and indulge in a massage, facial or other treatment.
Planning to travel with kids? The Omni’s family friendly water park, Splashtopia, makes it a great choice for entertaining the little ones in your life and Rancho Mirage’s consistently beautiful weather makes it ideal for splashing around all year. The water park is open from 9 AM to 5 PM Sunday to Thursday and 9 AM to 6 PM on the weekend during the winter. Of course, Omni also has adult oriented amenities, such as a spa and the incredible Blu Ember restaurant.
For those who prefer to spend the day on the links and the night at the concert hall, the Westin Mission Hills is a great choice for a resort. The resort has two championship golf courses, the Pete Dye and the Gary Player Signature Course, and has been named one of the top 75 golf courses in America by Golf Digest. Start your day with 18 holes, follow it with a delicious meal at the resort’s own Pinzimini and then head over to The Show for your concert.
