While there is no bad time to visit Rancho Valencia Resort & Spa, each season provides a unique experience. Spring honors the spirit of growth and renewal as the resort’s extensive gardens abound in a flourish of rich blossoms. This is also a great time to sojourn inland, as coastal areas are often afflicted by a weather pattern that locals call “May gray” and “June gloom,” which causes overcast conditions at the beaches. Summer brings hotter weather and long, reliably sunny days. If you want to avoid the beach crowds but still soak up some rays, head to the San Diego hotel’s secluded pools and private patios surrounded by lush green gardens.
Fall ushers in the season of serenity at Rancho Valencia. Shorter days, cooler temperatures and fewer tourists make this a great time to relax, restore and replenish mind, body and spirit. This is the ideal time to indulge in spa treatments, take advantage of the gym and engage in healing yoga sessions at the Forbes Travel Guide Five-Star hotel's new indoor/outdoor Balinese-inspired yoga pavilion. Families who wish to spend the holidays in a quiet private setting will fawn over the luxury hotel in the winter. Enjoy its numerous outdoor fireplaces and cozy ambiance. The resort and gardens are aglow with twinkling lights and other luminous details.
