Travelzoo Staff

Why We Love This Hotel

  • The AAA 4-Diamond family-friendly resort spreads over 500 acres in the foothills of the Santa Lucia Mountains
  • Kid-friendly amenities include a designated Splash Zone area in the pool, easy hiking trails and a guided bee experience in the apiary
  • Adult-friendly amenities include a modern spa facility and a Pete Dye designed 18-hole golf course
  • Guests with cars will find themselves 10 minutes from Carmel-by-the-Sea and 45 minutes from Big Sur


Sturdy oaks with swings, graceful weeping willows and sweeping valley views can be spied at every turn at the AAA 4-Diamond Carmel Valley Ranch, perfect for a romantic getaway or a relaxing family retreat.

The property has a wealth of activities to choose from like nature hikes, beekeeping lessons, horseback trails, mountaintop yoga or tennis lessons. Alternatively adults can opt keep themselves busy at the modern spa, 18-hole golf course or adults-only infinity pool, while kids make use of the pool's designated Splash Zone.  

At the onsite restaurant, Chef Tim Wood pairs food grown in the organic garden, with wine from the resort's vineyard. Guests can also venture to any of the surrounding wineries and sample varietals there, or enjoy s'mores beside the outdoor fire pit and sip while stargazing.
