Where was ‘Couples Retreat’ Season 3 filmed?

VH1’s Couples Retreat moved to MTV for its third season, so it was only natural that the reality romance series received a new filming location alongside its new network. Seasons 1 and 2 of the drama-fueled show occurred in sunny Southern California, specifically Coronado in San Diego Bay. And the format remained the same for the first two seasons.

In the series’ first and second installments, six celebrity couples stayed at the Loews Coronado Bay Resort to resolve their relationship issues. The four-star hotel offered everything from beaches and pool cabanas to sailboat rides and watersports.

However, now that MTV has taken over, the brand-new cast gets a brand-new backdrop.

Couples Retreat Season 3 also takes place in a sunny setting, but instead of the beach, it’s the desert. Filming of the third installment of the reality series occurred in Las Vegas, with the dazzling Vegas Strip front and center.

For this season, the six celebrity couples tried their hand at unconventional Sin City experiences such as herding cattle, trapezing with Cirque du Soleil performers, training with a ninja, and more.
