Retreat to Chaminade Resort, a mission-style property on 300 mountaintop acres just three miles from downtown Santa Cruz and four miles from Santa Cruz Beach Boardwalk. On-site, guests have access to an outdoor heated pool, hot tub, four tennis courts and a zen-like spa with indoor and outdoor treatment rooms. To explore the expansive property, visitors can hike along a three-mile trail or pick up a clue book for a high-tech treasure hunt.

The intimate property’s rooms feature Spanish-inspired décor, free Wi-Fi, flat-screen televisions and coffeemakers. Most accommodations have private patios looking out at the natural surroundings and some also include separate living rooms.

For Sunday Brunch, the hotel’s Sunset Restaurant is the place to be where the buffet is paired with champagne and a backdrop of breathtaking views. Linwood’s Bar & Grill, the hotel’s signature restaurant serves a la carte lunch and dinner along with panoramic Monterey Bay views.

With over 300 days of sunshine each year, the area offers a wealth of outdoor activities beyond the property line. Guests can easily access several nearby golf courses, set sail on Monterey Bay or sample local blends on a winery tour.
