Summer Vacation: The Chateau At Lake La Quinta

The Chateau At Lake La Quinta is a charming, lakeside boutique hotel located near Palms Springs.

With Palm Springs being just a 4 hour drive from Phoenix, Palm Springs is one of our favorite places for a quick getaway. The Chateau At Lake La Quinta is a quiet and romantic retreat just outside of Palm Springs. This French-inspired property opened in 2015 and offers 24 luxurious suites, with views of Lake La Quinta or the majestic San Jacinto Mountains.



The Chateau At Lake La Quinta is quiet and quaint with just 24 suites and bungalows that offer panoramic lake views, fireplaces and king size beds. Every room is different is with their own unique decor, with beautiful chandeliers and art. There are twenty-two Premium and Superior Lakeview Suites that are romantic and secluded with private patios opening right onto the water. There are also two Lakeside Bungalows, accessible through a private guest entrance, providing total seclusion. Breakfast in bed with views of the lake and evening wine on the patio were our favorite ways to enjoy the beautiful room and views.



Mélange is the on-property restaurant, serving breakfast, lunch and dinner. Situated in the lobby of the hotel, there is a bar and indoor dining room with a fireplace and a large patio, all with beautiful views of Lake La Quinta. The simple definition of Mélange is a mixture or medley of different things, and the menu is just that. Mélange features a flavorful menu with ingredients sourced from local California family farms. The menu changes seasonally with the dinner menu featuring a variety of small plates, salads and entrees.
