Carmel Valley Ranch, Carmel, California, USA

This is where California is stripped to its lovely bones. Away from the glitz and the traffic of the gleaming cities, it’s the great outdoors where you’ll find your thrills.

​Carmel Valley Ranch is a gem of a property, beautifully rendered and as high-spec as you like, with elegant furnishings finishing off the 139 roomy guest suites beautifully.

Like the suites, the spa is huge (10,500 sq ft!) with treatments inspired by the seasons – and there’s nothing quite like yoga on the Hilltop Platform.

​In amongst the Ranch’s 500 acres, you’ll discover what is arguably California’s most beautiful golf course along with so many unique and fun experiences, you may end up wanting to stay longer.

Where else can you play 18 holes of world-class golf, access hundreds of miles of hiking trails, wander around an organic garden, learn about honey bees in an apiary, explore vineyard terroir, then relax by your choice of pools.
