A luxurious golf and spa resort south of San Francisco.
Perched on bluffs overlooking the Pacific Ocean, this is the place to come for an indulgent and luxurious stay. The shingle-style architecture brings to mind the East Coast's nineteenth-century seaside lodges. Most of the 283 rooms and suites have fireplaces and balconies that give way to ocean and coastal views. The feather beds are a dream, and each room has a desk fully equipped to serve as an office away from home, if necessary. Club Level accommodations include access to a private lounge, which serves three complimentary food presentations daily. Elsewhere on property, the spa features sixteen treatment rooms, an oceanfront yoga studio and a Jacuzzi set on top of the bluffs. There's also a modest fitness center and a pool. For dinner, book a table at Navio, where chef Aaron Zimmer presents dishes such as local butterfish with Fuji apple, beet greens and beet ravioli. The expansive grounds feature a 36-hole golf course and 50 miles of coastal views. The property is a short drive from downtown Half Moon Bay.
