The Mediterranean-meets-hacienda-inspired Spa at Rancho Valencia embraces San Diego’s gorgeous weather with a number of outdoor amenities, including three therapeutic pools maintained at various temperatures. Engage in soothing Watsu treatments, take an invigorating plunge or go for a swim in the saline lap pool. Meanwhile, sun gardens with lounge areas and lush landscaping provide privacy and encourage relaxation.
Inside the San Diego spa, you’ll find 10 treatment rooms. While they all include private patios and fireplaces, nine of them also have deep alfresco soaking tubs and luxurious rain showers. Two couples’ suites come equipped with patios that boast dual showers along with generously proportioned tubs perfect for baths in tandem. Other lavish details include side-by-side treatment tables and glowing fireplaces that fan the flames of romance.
Pre- or post-pampering workouts can be had in the Forbes Travel Guide Four-Star spa's renovated gym. Though if you prefer to step away from the treadmill, get in a workout at the new Balinese-inspired yoga pavilion. The 1,000-square-foot addition is partially outdoors and is bordered by a serene and beautiful reflecting pond. The soothing sound of water adds a touch of tranquility to the lineup of sessions, which includes hot yoga.
