It was at this very moment and time last Tuesday that I was lying in a relaxation room, waiting for a sugar scrub at the Las Palmas Spa in Rancho Mirage. Fast forward a week and 10 minutes and I am sat here with a glass of floral water, battling nostalgia. As some of you may know, the boy and I embarked on a West Coast adventure three weeks ago, which included walks around San Fransisco, sunsets in Carmel-by-the-Sea, Celebrity spotting in LA, Coachella and much more in between. We had decided a while back that we wouldn't rush back to the City after the Coachella Music Festival, but, instead, spend two days relaxing, feeling zen, and getting centred before coming back to the daily grind. Not only was this a brilliant idea, as we were sleep deprived beyond safety, but we got the chance to stay in one of the most beautiful resorts we have ever laid our eyes on: The Omni Rancho Las Palmas Resort and Spa.
This resort offered us exactly what we needed after three days of festival madness. It houses a 20,000 square foot spa, 27 hole, Ted Robinson designed golf course, and Splashtopia, a water park with it's very own beach. We checked in early Monday morning and were warmly greeted by the tentative staff. The spa on-site is called Las Palmas Spa; it is a decadent and blissful space where you can put your feet up, sip on fruit-infused water and just be in the moment. The changing rooms, jacuzzi, steam room and sauna are separated into male and female, and are connected by a lobby, the spa shop and a hidden-away pool. While the boy played golf, I sat back with a book and found my zen.
The hotel also offers a range of dining options on-site; Splash Grill, Spa Cafe, R Bar, and my two personal favourites, blueEmber (for their fish tacos) and Palms Cafe, (for their killer iced, almond milk lattes). The resort has been designed to be spacious and authentic; the grounds boast a variety of exotic flowers, plants and palm trees, all key ingredients for a relaxing and tranquil holiday.
For the month of April the Las Palmas Spa, within the hotel, is offering a promotion on multiple treatment bookings, as well and as inviting you to join them for an evening of zen. See below for details.

To say we got back to New York relaxed, is an understatement. We were so entranced by this gorgeous hotel we are already planning our next trip! Thanks again to The Omni Rancho Las Palmas Resort and Spa for delivering a large plate of zen, with a side of class.
