A Storied Past

Since its opening in 1989, the award-winning Rancho Valencia Resort & Spa – Southern California’s only Relais & Chateaux property – has garnered reputation as one of the West’s most sought-after five star resorts. A sanctuary of good living tucked away on 45 acres of lush gardens and olive groves, this Mediterranean-inspired property near Del Mar, California changed ownership in 2010. Original developer, the Collins Family, passed their legacy to an investment group that includes the Jacobs Family, Doug Carlson and Jeffrey Essakow. Bringing a renewed energy to Rancho Valencia, the team is equally committed to continuing the tradition of providing the gracious, personalized service and exclusive experiences that guests and locals have come to know and cherish.

The all-suite resort has been a success since inception and it did not take long for guests to desire making Rancho Valencia their home. In fact, it was this frequent request that inspired the creation of The Villas at Rancho Valencia, a luxury private residence club, offering living in an exclusive resort environment - a dream come true.

In 2013 Rancho Valencia Resort & Spa completed $30 million renovation, including remodeled guest casitas, a brand new restaurant and new bar, and completely remodeled meeting space, as well as major enhancements to The Spa and fitness center. Among the property's offerings are 49 luxuriously appointed guest casitas with private patios, rejuvenating spa treatments and a wellness-oriented fitness program at The Spa, two distinctive restaurants - Veladora and The Pony Room - showcasing Rancho Valencia's farm-to-table philosophy, and an award-winning tennis program.

Rancho Valencia was hand selected by Forbes Travel Guide as one of the finest Five-Star hotels in the world (2018) and was awarded the prestigious AAA Five Diamond award (2018), both for four consecutive years. The resort has also been ranked as the #1 resort in the country by U.S. News & World Report (2015) and was listed on Condé Nast Traveler's 2016 Reader's Choice Awards List.

Since 2016, Rancho Valencia was among the Top 20 Hideaways selected by the readers of Andrew Harper's Hideaway Report. Travel + Leisure also included Rancho Valencia among its Top 50 Hotels in the World (2018), and Tennis Magazine continues to name the resort as its #1 U.S. Tennis Resort each year.
