“Beautiful cluster of Spanish-style bungalows in 43-acres of gardens and olive groves in Rancho Santa Fe, inland from stunning Californian beaches. The grand rooms are luxuriously furnished each with a fireplace. There is a renowned tennis coaching program, an excellent spa and countless activities.”

Rancho Valencia: Review

Hidden among immaculate horse ranches and polo fields just a short drive from LA, California's only Relais & Châteaux property is a quiet, romantic, solidly slick operator. A recent makeover includes two stunning destination restaurants and a gigantic spa-as-sanctuary with a Balinese-style yoga pavilion. While most of the interiors are pure Southern California, you'll be wowed by the treatment rooms which are glowy and Moroccan-inspired, with flower-filled terraces, rain showers and deep outdoor tubs. The exotic and good-enough-to-eat treatments use limes, lemons and other fruit from the gardens in original, nurturing treatments such as dessert-fig facials (they smell divine and really pep up tired skin), avocado body wraps and Valencia-orange massages. The two-hour couples' treatments use custom-blended essential oils, a clay body mask, bath soak and massage followed by a private poolside lunch. There's also a gentlemen's menu of facials, body scrubs and deep-tissue massages. It's the essence of the West Coast in big, soul-nourishing doses, and pretty much unfaultable in execution.
