They say it never rains in Southern California and if you were to take Ranch Santa Fe’s Rancho Valencia Resort and Spa’s new $30 million dollar overhaul as an example, then you might begin to believe it. The only Relais & Chateaux property in the region, the resort has made key additions to better suit their guests, placing an emphasis on providing the finest luxury accommodations in the SoCal.

“The resort’s 49 all-suite, guestrooms average 1,000-square-feet and feature custom-made, rustic furnishings, high-beam roofs, walk-in closets, spacious bathrooms with deep soaking tubs, fireplaces, intricate design pieces and private patios boasting fireplaces and whirlpools. Special design enhancements were also made to the property’s 5,000-square-foot Hacienda.” said Simon Chen, general manager of Rancho Valencia’s.

The 45 acres of lush Mediterranean inspired suites allow guests to indulge in locally grown vegetables that accent the seafood, poultry and meats-based dishes in their brand new signature restaurant, Veladora, and The Pony Room bar and their new boutique, Sheridan.

In addition to expanding the Spa at Rancho Valencia, the fitness center and resurfacing all 18 tennis courts, Rancho Valencia now offers new-line classes, treatments and wellness programs with a high-end skin care product line.

Weddings, executive retreats and meetings guests will enjoy a variety of newly designed multi-faceted event spaces that range from a 16-person state-of-the-art board room to a 1,900-square-foot ballroom…and don’t forget the 7,600-square-foot Croquet Lawn that boasts sweeping, panoramic views.
