Carmel Valley Ranch
A place for wine lovers, families and outdoor enthusiasts alike, Carmel Valley Ranch sits on a hill with its facilities spread across 500 acres of Central Coast wine country, complete with rivers, lakes, forests and vineyards. There’s nothing but suites here, all of which come with spacious outdoor decks, romantic fireplaces and anywhere from one to four bedrooms. An organic approach is championed across the resort’s several restaurants, with much of the produce grown within the hotel grounds. The excellent climate lends itself to outdoor activities, with options ranging from tennis, golf, hiking and horse riding to beekeeping, falconry and vineyard tours. There are also three outdoor pools and an excellent spa with a wide array of treatments.
