Fodor's Review

On grass-covered bluffs overlooking Shell Beach, this luxury resort looks and feels like an exclusive community of villas. Choose among sprawling one- or two-bedroom suites, each with a gourmet kitchen, laundry room with washer and dryer, and contemporary furnishings. Many suites have ocean views. Two-bedroom units include either a spa tub or fireplace; penthouse units have both. Rejuvenate at the on-site spa, lounge by the spacious heated pool, or stroll down a short path to the beach to gaze at the sea—this place was made for upscale escape and relaxation. Lido ($$$–$$$$), the fancy yet casual restaurant (no flip-flops), serves impressive farm-to-table cuisine inspired by the California Wine Country.
