Rosewood CordeValle

Northern California's hidden gem
Rosewood CordeValle might be Northern California’s best-kept secret. Located in tiny San Martin, tucked into the foothills of the Santa Cruz Mountains, this luxury resort is even hidden from local residents, who remain unaware of the existence of it in their own backyard.

It’s a unique property — an invitation-only golf club and executive retreat that is also a boutique hotel with 45 Craftsman-style rooms. Surrounded by tree-covered hills, deep-set canyons, and sprawling meadowlands, Rosewood CordeValle is perhaps best known for its prestigious championship golf course. But with a sumptuous spa, three California-inspired restaurants and an onsite winery, this picturesque resort offers peaceful seclusion without sacrificing luxury.
Our Inspector's Highlights
• The resort’s focal point is its Robert Trent Jones, Jr.-designed golf course — site of the 2016 LPGA US Open. Two practice putting greens, a short game area for chipping, pitching and sand play, along with a full staff of PGA pros round out the offerings.

• For spectacular views of the tree-studded hills surrounding the resort, hike the easily accessible two-mile CordeValle trail or the three-mile Vintner’s trail. Or just take in the golf course vistas from the comfort of a poolside lounge chair.

• Indulge at the Four-Star Sense Spa, where signature grape seed treatments are derived from the surrounding vineyards. Unwind in the therapeutic whirlpools and steam rooms.

• The property is located in California’s oldest wine-growing region and is surrounded by a multitude of boutique wineries, all within a 20-mile radius. Rosewood CordeValle’s concierge will gladly coordinate a wine tasting itinerary.

• The luxury hotel boasts a stellar art collection of 20 original pieces, curated by the property’s owner. Take a self-guided tour with the provided map that describes the paintings and sculptures found in the main building, restaurants and outdoor common areas.
Things to Know
• Only club members and resort guests are granted access to golf, tennis, pool and spa facilities and the three onsite restaurants, ensuring an uncrowded and relaxed atmosphere.

• Bay Area business tycoons and Silicon Valley entrepreneurs are known to frequent the secluded San Martin hotel and golf club.

• Schedule a winery tour and tasting at the Clos LaChance Winery (located just off the green’s sixth hole) and a resort bellman will escort you via golf cart to the Italianate villa overlooking Tuscan-like terrain.
The Rooms
• The spacious rooms range from the 550-square-foot Fairway Rooms and 750-square-foot Bungalows to the immense 3,100-square-foot Fairway Homes. No matter which accommodation you choose, each offers a beautiful view of the resort.

• The rooms are elegantly appointed in California Craftsman style with wood accents, tiled fireplaces, goose-down comforters, original artwork, flat-screen TVs and oversized bathrooms

• Bungalows feature outdoor patios that overlook fairway No. 9. The indulgent whirlpool tubs in the bathrooms share the same vista.

• Fairway Homes are adjacent to the golf course’s first tee and feature four master bedrooms with en suite baths (each room has a separate entrance) surrounding a central living area and butler’s kitchen.
The Restaurants
• The elegant and romantic Il Vigneto features a seasonal menu of contemporary California cuisine with Latin influences and inspired wine pairings.

• Lion’s Peak Grill is adjacent to the pool and the golf course and provides a pleasant and casual alfresco dining venue for breakfast and lunch. Cocktails are served until sunset.

• One Iron Bar, spotlighting California cuisine and creative cocktails, is a spirited spot to unwind after a day on the green. Two jumbo screens are tuned to the day's sporting events, and a massive indoor fireplace wards off the night chill.

• As Rosewood CordeValle’s all-day dining venue, One Iron Bar offers playful California twists on classic dishes. Breakfast might include smoked pork Benedict with chipotle hollandaise, lunch can be a pancetta and Oaxaca cheese panino and dinner could feature lemongrass-infused clam chowder.
