The Spa at Rancho Valencia

San Diego's Spanish-inspired spa
Following Rancho Valencia Resort & Spa’s $30 million renovation, The Spa at Rancho Valencia reopened to debut 10 beautifully appointed treatment rooms, an expanded yoga pavilion, a state-of-the art gym, a shop and a luxurious new spa menu. 

The fresh menu features a variety of wellness treatments calibrated to relax, refresh and renew mind, body and spirit. Multi-service rituals use top-of-the-line, organic skincare products combined with expert application to deliver a series of enriching treatments. 

Spa-goers can indulge in lavish body treatments such as salt scrubs, soothing bath soaks and herb-laced body wraps. Firming facials, couples' treatments, a full menu of nail services and an expansive selection of massage and touch therapies are also available.
Our Inspector's Highlights
  • The Mediterranean-meets-hacienda-inspired spa embraces San Diego’s gorgeous weather with a number of outdoor amenities, including three therapeutic pools maintained at various temperatures. The Contrast Hydrotherapy Circuit is not to be missed.
  • 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.
  • The 1,000-square-foot Balinese-inspired yoga pavilion 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.
  • Couples can luxuriate in a wide array of packages that may include a relaxing bath or custom-blended clay-and-oil body masks followed by massages performed in tandem. 
  • Expectant mothers can join in on the spa fun with the mommy-to-be treatment, which provides a pre-natal pampering. Supportive props and pillows are provided for safety and comfort.
Things to Know
  • If you’re looking to get an appointment at the Forbes Travel Guide Five-Star spa, note that it is open from 8 a.m. until 8 p.m. daily.
  • Reservations are easily made by dialing the spa concierge or sending an email.
  • Plan to arrive at least 30 minutes prior to your appointed treatment time to fully enjoy the luxurious facilities.
  • Also, be sure to bring appropriate bathing attire for the wet areas.
  • Don’t feel like trekking over to the spa? Opt to have a therapist visit your casita for an in-room massage.
The Treatments
  • Massage options include the hot stone treatment, which incorporates gentle manual kneading with the penetrating heat of warm stones placed along pressure points to improve circulation and ease aches and tension.
  • The Signature Facial utilizes ISUN organic products, a renowned plant-based luxury skincare collection, while Advanced Facial Therapies feature the Barcelona-based Natura Bissé line.
  • The deep-tissue massage also makes our favorites list. This technique uses slow, focused pressure that aims to release muscle tension.
  • Most massage options are available side-by-side, which is great for mother-daughter spa days, girlfriend getaways or romantic rendezvous for couples who wish to relax in tandem.
The Facilities
  • Get your workout in by selecting from a robust schedule of 95 complimentary fitness classes, including Pilates, spin, Barre and yoga in the scenic 1,000-square-foot Serenity Yoga Pavilion. 
  • Meanwhile, sun gardens with lounge areas and lush landscaping provide privacy and encourage relaxation.
  • 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 renovated gym, or opt to sweat it all out in the coed steam rooms or saunas.
