It’s official! The location for the 2021 season of The Bachelorette has been confirmed by Reality Steve. Originally, production was planning on filming the season in Canada. However, Canada released new travel restrictions regarding COVID-19 that forced producers to shift gears. Now, a new location has been secured. All that’s needed now is a host, the men and of course a Bachelorette. So, where will the new season start filming in just a few short weeks?
Where will The Bachelorette 2021 film?
Earlier today Reality Steve shared what he knew about the filming location of The Bachelorette. He wasn’t 100% positive in the beginning but he knew the show would be filming in New Mexico. Tonight, Steve went to Twitter to confirm 100% the show will be filmed at the Hyatt Regency Tamaya Resort and Spa. He said, “I can 100% confirm this now that filming will be at the Hyatt Regency Tamaya just outside of Albuquerque, New Mexico.” As stated by Steve, this resort is located just roughly 20 minutes outside of Albuquerque. Specifically the resort is located in Santa Ana Pueblo, New Mexico.
The resort offers tons of things to do. There are stables for light yoga and horseback riding. There is also trails to take a bike ride on. If not for the pandemic, The Bachelorette and her suitors could take a short trip to Sandia Peak for a tram ride. The views are incredible and offer great hikes.
Other than the above, there is also golf and many dining choices. And, perhaps a hot air balloon ride could happen. While many activities were shut down due to the pandemic, chances are they will open up for The Bachelorette cast and crew.
The resort website says, “Nestled on 550 acres of the Native American Santa Ana Pueblo between the Sandia Mountains and the Rio Grande River, Tamaya is steeped in over one thousand years of rich history and culture.”

Who will be The Bachelorette and the host?
These two questions remain up in the air. Right now both of these topics are under discussion. Katie Thurston was rumored to be The Bachelorette. However, the racism controversy surrounding Chris Harrison and Rachael Kirkconnell changed things up. So, Steve says production is trying to figure out how to move forward.
Filming will begin in the later half of March. Producers have big decisions to make before then. They not only need a lead, they need a host. According to reports, Chris Harrison’s future with the franchise still remains unclear.
