Situated in the Rancho Santa Fe area on 40 acres of beautiful hills and land, the Rancho Valencia is a 49 all suite private Relais & Châteaux hotel. Having undergone a major $30 million renovation in 2012, the award-winning Rancho Valencia is looking at its best since opening in 1989. Decorated in a Mediterranean style and sprawling over the land, the hotel is ideal for couples, honeymooners and families as well as those looking for tennis and yoga retreats and golf holidays.
One and two bedroom suites are extremely spacious and decorated with Mediterranean custom furnishings. Oozing style and luxury, the casitas accommodate families with a sleeper sofa either in the separate living room or the same bedroom. All feature outside private patios, some also have a fireplace and, or, Jacuzzi. There is also a three bedroom hacienda, perfect for a larger family or group of friends.
At the Rancho Valencia, there is a main swimming pool and an adults-only pool by the spa, both also have a Jacuzzi. The Spa is home to a 24 hour fitness centre, pilates studio, yoga pavilion and complimentary classes. It is the only spa in San Diego to use Amala products, the world’s premier plant-powered luxury skincare range. The hotel is fantastic for golf and tennis too, with 18 hard courts and exclusive access to three nearby golf courses; The Farms, Maderas Golf Club and Torrey Pines Golf Club. We are able to pre book your tee times and finalise your special rates at the courses up to a month prior to arrival (complimentary golf clubs provided).
