Fodor's Review

The activity options at this luxury ranch are so varied that the resort provides a program director to guide you through them. Swing from a tree, hike in the woods, meditate on a hilltop yoga platform, or play a round of golf on the 18-hole Peter Dye golf course. Harvest honey at the on-site apiary and lavender field, or splurge on massages in the full-service Spa Aiyana. The main lodge is a slick, contemporary haven with Brazilian walnut floors, custom woodwork, and floor-to-ceiling

windows that open to stunning valley views. Rooms have cathedral ceilings, travertine fireplaces, and large decks. The River Ranch center is a giant playground with a pool, a children's splash zone, boccie courts, a fitness center with TRX suspension training and a host of classes, and a café. Many of the ingredients used in the resort’s main restaurant come from a 2-acre organic garden on-site.
