In fact, for anyone looking at a luxury golf getaway in California, The Ritz-Carlton, Rancho Mirage is certainly among the best places to stay, though this all-around five-star hotel has a lot else going for it besides. The style and décor throughout is also an eclectic mix of Contemporary Art pieces in the lobby and communal areas, minimal clutter in the airy guestrooms and suites, comfy sofas at every opportunity and a fresh feel to it all.

Guestrooms, suites and residence suites are each a fully modern affair here at The Ritz-Carlton, Rancho Mirage, with minimalist lines, zero unnecessary extras or ornaments, generous bathrooms with both a deep-soak tub and rain shower as standard, a furnished terrace for all and desert views in most. Artworks on every wall add a touch of class and the list of in-room amenities is also impressively long, from king-size beds to espresso machines, thick robes, HDTVs, an iHome docking station, Wi-Fi and more.
A lively open kitchen, all things Californian cuisine – think hearty steaks, avocado and salsa fries, ribs and huge salad bowls – signature cocktails and a delightful al fresco terrace; there’s just so much to love about the Ritz-Carlton’s State Fare Bar & Kitchen.
It may not look like your typical steakhouse, what with its walls of glass, contemporary décor and extensive wine list, but The Edge is actually one of the best restaurants in Palm Springs when it comes to fine dining prime cuts, seasonal sides and a whole new take on this beloved American staple.
Light lunches, zingy cocktails cold beer without leaving the luxury of your poolside sunbed, either hop-up to the bar itself or have the wait staff deliver it personally – if making use of the Ritz-Carlton’s private cabana service, that is.
