You know when sitting on a cushy lounge chair with a book and cool beverage (maybe even a glass of rosé) feels like the most productive thing you could be doing? That’s how it feels to stay at Rancho Valencia Resort & Spa. The property is tucked away from the hustle and bustle of the city just North of San Diego. Here, it’s practically your job to lay poolside, enjoy a game of tennis, and dine on the patio. Let your worries subside, and take a trip with us for a minute to this luxury escape in San Diego. By the bottom of the page, you’ll be booking your stay.


To start, let’s take you on a walk through our casita. Yep, those are the aforementioned lounge chairs you can enjoy right in your own casita’s ‘backyard.’ Hop back and forth between lying here and dipping in the jacuzzi and we promise you’ll be one happy camper. When you’ve thoroughly enjoyed the sunshine, cozy up in your room’s sitting room or jacuzzi tub and relax even more… if that’s possible.

However, we love the accommodations at Rancho Valencia for more than their serene retreat feel. The rooms are stunningly beautiful with Mediterranean influence from floor to ceiling, they’re equipped with espresso machines and mini bars (in which everything is included!), and they feel incredibly private and inviting.



If you do ever find yourself leaving the room (we’re only sort-of kidding) there are plenty of activities on site to keep you busy. Enjoy a game of tennis on one of the many courts, a game of croquet, checkers, corn hole or badminton on the lawn, or swim in one of the various pools. We tried our hand at all of the above.

But what truly makes Rancho Valencia unique when it comes to activities is its incredible spa and fitness facilities. People from all over come to the property just to visit the spa and enjoy a facial or massage in one of the courtyard rooms. Not only is it a restful & peaceful experience, but also one-of-a-kind thanks to their truly special treatment options.
