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 400-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 Cork anytime. The main restaurant, Navio, is suitably decadent, with a kitchen that turns local produce into exquisite dishes. The on-site spa offers coastal-themed treatments that featuring local products.
