As the region’s only Relais & Châteaux property, Rancho Valencia’s commitment to sustainable practices extends from energy-efficient fixtures to locally sourced cuisine to organic spa treatments.

At the Rancho Valencia Spa, wellness is as much about personal wellbeing as it is about the surrounding environment. Natural herbs, flowers, oils and minerals are all incorporated into an expansive spa menu designed to responsibly rejuvenate. The Wild Radiance custom facial features organic products, regenerating skin with a softening honey-and-goji-berry mask. A dewy complexion is further achieved by a natural polish, herbal mask, nourishing peptide serums and Vitamin C. The calming Coconut Cucumber Soother is the go-to organic body treatment: a blend of coconut cream, cucumber and rose distillates are massaged into the palms and soles of feet, finished with a healing serum and antioxidant body oil. Enjoy a completely conscious spa day with The Organics package, including the soother, facial and Hand and Foot Nirvana treatments. For the most intimate experience, book the peaceful Outdoor Duet Suite comprising a private lounge, outdoor shower and dual treatment cabanas for two, and find tranquility in the Southern California climate.

Partnered with Lifewellness Institute, the property has launched the Wellness Collective, a comprehensive calendar of workshops, lectures and activities centered on epigenetics. The newly launched program offers three-, five- and seven-day retreats designed to transform lifestyle elements, including Stress & Balance, Nutrition & Toxicity and Sleep & Respite.

Relax fully in the most spacious accommodation — the 5,000 sq ft Private Hacienda Home. The adobe-style home features a full kitchen, wood-burning fireplace, and three separate bedroom suites (each with its own private bath). Unwind on your private patio, in the private heated pool and whirlpool, or by the flowering hibiscus gardens.

Rancho Valencia is located at 5921 Valencia Circle, Rancho Santa Fe, CA 92067. For more information, please visit
