You Can Actually Stay At The Resort Where This Season Of The Bachelorette Was Filmed

This year, pretty much everything has changed, and most of that change has been extremely stressful. So when news broke that season 16 of The Bachelorette would not be filming at the same mansion Bachelor Nation has been virtually visiting for years, it may well have been an anxiety breaking point. Fans should not fear this particular change though, because the dramatic new season was shot at a breathtaking locale that you can actually visit.

Where Was ‘The Bachelorette’ Filmed? How to Book a Stay at the California Resort

This season of The Bachelorette looks a lot different from those past, mainly because of the location. Clare Crawley and suitors didn’t spend any time at the Bachelor Mansion due to COVID. Instead, they bunked up at a glamorous resort, which you can definitely visit—when it’s safe to travel again, of course.

Instead of the cast traveling the world, or even throughout the California area, all of the Bachelorette filming took place at the La Quinta Resort and Club, a Waldorf Astoria Resort. It’s located in La Quinta, California, which is super-close to Indio, where Coachella usually takes place. So, next time you’re headed to the music festival (whenever it resumes, post-COVID), you might want to check it out, to get a slice of that Bachelorette lifestyle.

All About the Resort Where S16 of The Bachelorette Was Filmed – E! Online

Fact: There are several elephants in the room when it comes to season 16 of The Bachelorette.

Longtime host Chris Harrison has teased an “explosive” premiere unlike any other. And as Bachelor Nation fanatics already know, Tayshia Adams, 30, is expected to swoop in and replace Clare Crawley, 39, as the star at some point. When, why, and how? We don’t exactly know for sure. 

But one thing’s clear: Clare and the lineup of men cast as her suitors will not be seen roaming about the Bachelor Mansion, Villa de la Vina, when it’s time to kick off the lovefest. Though production for The Bachelorette was initially scheduled to begin in March, the coronavirus pandemic seriously delayed filming to July, where the task of finding Clare the one was flipped entirely on its head.

Chris Harrison on a ‘Bachelorette’ Season Without Travel

In any given season, the cast and crew of The Bachelor and The Bachelorette will set off to half a dozen destinations, visiting everywhere from the Bahamas to Peru to Bali. This year, travel restrictions kept the show in one place—Palm Springs, California. We spoke with host Chris Harrison about what a stationary season of the show looked like, where he hopes the franchise will go next, and his 2020 vacation plans. 

Like many of us, those plans included a road trip. After spending two months in Palm Springs filming, Harrison drove across his home state of Texas and up into Oklahoma to visit college friends, a drive he says he could take in his sleep. Less familiar is his knowledge of cars themselves. “I don’t know how much a brake job costs, I don’t know how much a battery costs or when it needs to be changed,” he says.
