The Forbes 5-star Rancho Valencia Resort & Spa is the epitome of Southern California grandeur and refinement. Whether friends & family are at the resort for a short stay while visiting you nearby, or you’re simply stopping in to treat yourself to an afternoon at the spa, a blowout at the salon, pilates at the fitness center, or IV therapy at Kind Health Wellness… You’ll be experiencing the finest luxury lodging, amenities, and wellness facilities North County has to offer. That’s not even mentioning the peerless coastal ranch cuisine offered by the hacienda-style dining rooms. All told, a coveted stay or membership at Rancho Valencia Resort & Spa is one of the best opportunities available to any resident of the Rancho Santa Fe area.
No matter the size of your party, Rancho Valencia has it all when it comes to warm, opulent lodging. From a dozen private villas to the 5,000-square-foot adobe “Hacienda,” to nearly 50 cozy private “Casitas”—each with unique floor plans—it’s safe to say that relaxing stays abound for groups of all shapes and sizes. But you aren’t confined to the resort, either. Feel free to pedal around Rancho Santa Fe at large with the complimentary resort bicycles, head out into San Diego bay on a sailboat, hop down to the Valle de Guadalupe wine country on a private helicopter, or hover over the hills of Rancho Santa Fe in a hot air balloon—all booked directly through the resort. Of course, some of the best beaches in the world are just a stone’s throw away, too!
Rancho Valencia Resort & Spa also offers a variety of special packages designed to cater to your comfort, such as a “Great Expectations Babymoon Package” where you’ll receive maternity-focused welcome amenities, rose petal turndowns, and soothing couples massages each day, including service from a licensed maternity therapist. Other special packages include a “Fall Romance,” “Family Stay And Play,” and a holiday-focused package that will “Deck Your Casita With Holiday Cheer!”
The lodging and surroundings notwithstanding, Rancho Valencia’s health and wellness facilities are in a league all to their own, not to mention the superb cuisine on offer each day. The 5-star spa is newly renovated, with a salon offering all manner of hair, manicure, and pedicure services, spacious locker rooms, a fitness center (with yoga, pilates, cardio, sculpt, TRX, restorative, aqua, and outdoor classes), and more. There’s also a lushly-furnished pool, with cabanas reminiscent of a Caribbean paradise and incredible cocktails and poolside snacks. The health center, operated by Kind Health Wellness, also offers state-of-the-art treatments, including Emsculpt NEO’s muscle-toning and fat-burning technology, as well as a number of IV therapies.
The dining and drinks, of course, are just as superb as the spa, casitas, and everything else. The cuisine is curated and helmed by executive chef Alex Bloom, a former executive sous chef at the renowned Cuvier Club in La Jolla, and Rancho Valencia is home to several dining rooms and restaurants, including the well-known Pony Room, where guests can find over 100 variations of tequila, the poolside “Rein,” home to scrumptious sun-dappled treats and refreshing cocktails, the “Culinary Garden,” a one-of-a-kind farm-to-table dining experience amid the warm gardens of the resort. Whether it is heirloom tomatoes for a gazpacho, borage flowers to adorn a simple salad, or chili peppers for an infused spicy margarita recipe, we aim to highlight the very best our climate has to offer, says the resort’s website. Of course, there are several private dining venues available for your use, too, as well as in-room dining!
You simply can’t live in the Rancho Santa Fe area without experiencing the luxuries of the Rancho Valencia Resort & Spa. This 5-star resort didn’t earn its rating from Forbes for no reason—and when you move to North County, it’s right in your backyard!
