Bernardus Lodge & Spa
Sumptuous renovations and a longstanding commitment to service make this resort a perennial favorite.
Set on 28 acres laced with vineyards and orchards, and surrounded by the stunning Santa Lucia Range, Bernardus Lodge & Spa offers 73 chic guest rooms, suites and villas. The décor reveals a stylish contemporary aesthetic with decadent details such as French oak floors and Italian stonework. The residential-style accommodations highlight pale, soothing color palettes, rich textures with hand-hewn, reclaimed wood details, and beds that show off plush silver headboards and high-end Frette linens. All come with superlative amenities, from private gardens to complimentary wine bars stocked with Bernardus vintages.
Lucia Restaurant & Bar is a popular destination for locals as well as hotel guests. Chef Cal Stamenov has long been a champion of regional ingredients, and his passion for local produce plays a starring role on the menu. Guests can also dine in the bar, where ranch style goes urban, and cocktails enjoy daily-changing infusions with herbs from the hotel garden. At The Spa at Bernardus Lodge, treatments are just the beginning. The spa also offers moonlit yoga, group endurance hikes and culinary cultivation sessions. Tennis is available on-site, while the surrounding area offers some of the country's best golf, and day trips include charming, nearby Carmel-by-the-Sea. Bernardus is also ideal for corporate retreats, with sophisticated meeting venues and team-building activities like wine-and-cheese tastings and the Land Rover Experience Driving School.
