With suite-only accommodations, Rancho Valencia Resort & Spa exudes luxury down to its finest details. The gorgeously appointed, hacienda-style lodgings all feature 600-thread-count linens, custom organic bath products, and an Illy espresso machine. Every morning, fresh-squeezed orange juice and a newspaper will be waiting outside your door. The detail-oriented approach extends to the resort’s two restaurants, which work with local growers to source the highest-quality ingredients. From olive oil, herbs, and honey produced right on the property to grass-fed steaks, the food is as farm-to-table as possible.
While leaving your suite might be a challenge, two outdoor heated pools and hot tubs, free golf club rentals, a tennis facility with 18 courts, and the Serenity Yoga Pavilion beckon. You can also borrow croquet and bocce ball equipment, board games, and bikes. Or, just get lost on the Mediterranean-inspired estate’s grounds, where you can wander through beautiful gardens and olive groves.
