The Ritz-Carlton

1 Miramontes Point Rd., Half Moon Bay, California, 94019, USA

With its enormous and elegantly decorated rooms, secluded oceanfront property, and a staff that waits on guests hand and foot, this golf and spa resort defines opulence. Attention to detail is remarkable, right down to the silver service, china, and 300-thread-count Egyptian cotton sheets. During cocktail hour, view the ocean from the plush Conservatory Lounge or from under a heavy blanket on an Adirondack chair on the lawn; visit the wine bar Eno anytime. The main restaurant, Navio, is suitably decadent, with a kitchen that turns local fish and produce into dishes like goat ricotta ravioli with toasted walnuts, pan-seared diver scallops with sunchokes, and braised beef short rib hash with eggs and glazed turnips.
