Natural beauty on the California coast

582 Rooms / 32 Suites

Although Terranea Resort is located only 30 miles from downtown Los Angeles, you’ll feel as if you’ve been transported to a lush Mediterranean estate. The resort situated on the Palos Verdes Peninsula hugs the coast along the Pacific Ocean, affording beautiful views of the water and nearby Catalina Island.

Whether you’re traveling to the Forbes Travel Guide Four-Star hotel for a short business trip or an extended stay with your family, Terranea offers a variety of accommodations, from spacious guest rooms to residential-style Bungalows, Casitas and Villas. Walk around the resort — or get escorted in a golf cart — to discover eight restaurants, bars, cafés and lounges ranging from upscale California cuisine to contemporary Asian, or indulge in a bit of pampering at The Spa at Terranea, a 50,000-square-foot haven whose treatment rooms overlook the water and outdoor fire pits provide the ideal setting to unwind.

The real focus here is on preserving the property’s surrounding environment, so Terranea does a great job of maintaining its secluded beach cove’s natural landscape as well as enlisting the help of an on-site naturalist. Kids’ programs run the gamut here, too, from activities such as tidepooling and outdoor movies to falconry and glow golf.
