Carmel Valley Ranch

1 Old Ranch Rd., Carmel, California, 93923, USA

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 frame stunning valley views. Rooms have cathedral ceilings, travertine fireplaces, and large decks. For the ultimate in privacy, book a "treehouse" suite in a secluded oak grove, where your outdoor living room comes with a dual-sided fireplaceand a soaking tub. The River Ranch center is a giant playground with a pool, a children's splash zone, boccie courts, and a fitness center with TRX suspension training. Many of the ingredients used in the resort’s main restaurant come from a 2-acre organic garden on-site.
