Rancho Valencia Resort & Spa Hotel Review

: Utterly secluded in the tony enclave of Rancho Santa Fe, Rancho Valencia is a mere half hour from downtown San Diego (and its parks, sports venues and nightlife), and just minutes from the Del Mar Racetrack. For those who prefer a quiet retreat from the city's activities, Rancho Valencia offers well-appointed suites and cottages with private terraces, beamed ceilings and functional fireplaces, as well as private Jacuzzis in some --- perfect for a romantic rendezvous. Make sure to indulge in some pampering at The Spa, arguably one of the most beautiful in the country with its Spanish tile work, lush gardens and fountains. Numerous unique treatments are offered including special rituals for couples and a water therapy massage called watsu. The open-air yoga pavilion overlooks an infinity pool and lush garden for the ultimate downward dog experience. Tennis is also a popular draw; Rancho Valencia offers eighteen hard courts (with complimentary court time for guests) set amidst 45 rolling acres of Southern California countryside. For the ultimate getaway, book The Hacienda, a 5,000-square-foot home that offers three separate bedroom suites, a central living room, kitchen, dining room, its own private pool, jacuzzi and cabana. House restaurant Veladora serves superb farm-to-table "coastal ranch" cuisine with pairings from a top-notch wine list and The Pony Room serves up gourmet bar food.
