LA QUINTA, Calif. -- A new era begins for Rancho Las Palmas Resort & Spa™ as KSL Resorts officially begins managing this legendary property located in the heart of Rancho Mirage, Calif. A favorite of visitors to greater Palm Springs since it opened 27 years ago, the 444-room property, formerly known as the Rancho Las Palmas Marriott Resort & Spa, is centrally located directly across the street from The River, renowned throughout the region for its vibrant mix of restaurants, entertainment and shops.


“Rancho Las Palmas Resort & Spa is a Palm Springs-area classic and a welcome addition to the KSL Resorts collection,” said Scott Dalecio, president and chief executive officer of KSL Resorts. “Our focus is to improve an already unique resort through strategic capital investment and the enhancement of key services and amenities.”

KSL will immediately implement a comprehensive $30 million renovation plan which will include an inviting new central plaza lined by exciting dining venues and shops, upgraded meeting facilities and more luxurious guest accommodations. Changes will also entail a welcoming entryway and lobby, enhanced pool areas and new landscaping throughout Rancho Las Palmas Resort & Spa’s 240 acres. The resort’s 27-hole golf course at Rancho Las Palmas Country Club and its 20,000-square-foot spa are also targeted for improvements. The renovation is slated for completion within 24 months and the resort will remain open throughout.
