3 Relaxing Resorts in Louisiana


Whether you’re planning a family trip, a romantic retreat or a solo getaway, these three elegant Louisiana resorts will indulge your senses with opulent surroundings and the finest amenities money can buy.

Cypress Bend Resort

Make the trek to Cypress Bend Resort on Toledo Bend Lake for amazing scenery, relaxing seclusion and outstanding accommodations. If you’re looking forward to some time outdoors, Cypress Bend offers 600 acres of forests and gardens to lift your spirits, and you’ll find plenty of opportunities for fishing, boating and more on the lake. Consider hitting the links too, as the resort is famed for its beautiful 18-hole championship golf course. If you need a few hours of self-care, retreat to The Spa at Cypress Bend for a full menu of rejuvenating treatments. Other resort amenities include a dining room and lounge, a heated indoor/outdoor swimming pool and a Swedish sauna. For an especially luxurious stay, book a deluxe suite with a balcony or walk-out patio, hot tub and views of the 18th fairway.

L’Auberge Casino Resort

Whether you prefer games of chance, live music, shopping, golf or fine dining, you’ll easily find something to love at L’Auberge Casino Resort in Lake Charles. If relaxation is what you crave, schedule a treatment at Spa du Lac, kick back in a luxury cabana at the adults-only pool or play a round at the Contraband Bayou Golf Club. For a little more excitement, visit the resort’s outstanding casino, where you can get in on the action with 1,600 slots and 80 table games. You might even be able to catch a concert by a national touring act at the L’Auberge Event Center. At mealtime, you can choose from seven onsite restaurants, which offer everything from steaks and bar food to Southern cooking and Asian cuisine. Bedtime is something to look forward to as well, with numerous suite options that incorporate upscale elements like marble showers, oversized tubs, private gardens and floor-to-ceiling windows.

The Ritz-Carlton New Orleans

One of the city’s most charming and sophisticated resort hotels, The Ritz-Carlton New Orleans makes the most of its historic Beaux Arts building in the heart of the French Quarter. When you book your stay, you can choose from an array of splendid rooms and suites with amenities like river-overlook balconies, Italian marble bathrooms and distinguished works of art. You’ll also be steps away from the city’s best attractions and nightlife. Experience unparalleled pampering at the Ritz-Carlton Spa, which offers a boutique, a cafe, lounge areas and more than 100 treatment options — including the exclusive Voodoo Ritual. Relax in the rooftop courtyard, the library or the exclusive Club Lounge. Head to the onsite Davenport Lounge for special Afternoon Tea events, cocktails and some of the city’s best live jazz. The Ritz-Carlton is also home to M Bistro, a farm-to-table restaurant with an ever-changing seasonal menu that reflects the best in regional cuisine.

You and your loved ones deserve nothing but the best when it comes to vacation quarters, and that’s exactly what you’ll find at these deluxe Louisiana resort properties.
