If you're looking for the perfect luxury staycation, you'll find U.S. News & World Report's #1 Best Resort and Hotel in California for 2022 right in Rancho Santa Fe: Rancho Valencia. In actuality, this perennially-ranked, best-in-class resort and hotel has received too many awards to list here, including ranking as the number one resort in the United States according to U.S. News & World Report and making Travel + Leisure's list of the World’s 500 Best Hotels in 2021. It is without a doubt one of the finest luxury hotel experiences in the world.

Nestled into 45 acres of lush gardens and citrus groves, Rancho Valencia houses 49 guest casitas and three sprawling private residences. The all-suite resort is Mediterranean-inspired and features all of the amenities you would expect including a luxury pool, tennis courts, a spa, a salon, and a comprehensive state-of-the-art fitness center complemented by a full suite of daily fitness programming including including yoga, pilates, outdoor classes and more.

The property also includes a restaurant and The Pony Room, a bar that's a longtime favorite of mine and many other RSF locals. Situated in a captivating, candlelit hacienda, the bar offers an extensive selection of locally-brewed craft beers and over 100 variations of tequila, as well as high-end wines and hand-crafted cocktails.

Last but certainly not least, is the spa. It offers a unique indoor/outdoor setting, including the service rooms. I have personally spent time here with friends, and the experience was wonderful. After a small group Pilates class, we enjoyed the relaxation room, which had tea and healthy snacks. I recommend the Balancing Gemstone Massage, which incorporates a massage using four herb-infused oils and a cooling crystal wand facial. After the treatment, we were given green juice, then spent a relaxing afternoon poolside, where we were treated to champagne and lunch. The experience left us feeling both relaxed and revitalized. We had a perfect afternoon and appreciated the exceptional service.
