The desert is getting bubbly, thanks to a new partnership between La Quinta Resort & Club, A Waldorf Astoria Resort and Veuve Clicquot. Together, the two are creating an intoxicating oasis at the resort’s adults-only Plunge Pool. During the day, guests can relax poolside under umbrellas in Veuve’s signature color or rent a Clicquot-branded private cabana with bottle service. A roving champagne cart will be available for guests looking to enjoy an effervescent buzz under the warm desert sun.
From 3-6 p.m., Plunge Pool transforms into the Après Swim lounge. Guests can play lawn games and enjoy champagne tasting flights, signature cocktails and light bites before dinner.
For groups, La Quinta Resort & Club is offering a new Champagne 101 program.
A Veuve Clicquot Champagne Specialist will guide participants through frequently asked questions, such as how to open a bottle, what types of glassware should be used and how to store champagne. This will be fol - lowed by a tasting of the Clicquot range, highlighting the house’s Yellow Label, Rosé and Vintage Champagne, with the opportu - nity to add on a Veuve Clicquot Rich cocktailmaking experience. Depending on group size, Champagne 101 can be arranged at a variety of La Quinta venues, including the historic La Casa Courtyard, the Great Lawn or a private dining room.
Spanning 45 acres, La Quinta has 620 guest rooms, 98 villas, and over 190,000 square feet of indoor and outdoor meeting space.
