Why We Love It

- Had its beginnings as a private country club and golf course in 1923
- With the resorts’ unique setting, along an east-west mountain range, it showcases brilliant sunsets
- While secluded, the resort is easily accessible from Los Angeles or Santa Barbara

Map & Directions
Rooms & Rates
Smooth, bright adobe buildings and red-tile roofs pop on the background of a mountain range running east and west behind the Ojai Valley Inn & Spa. The historic resort was built in the pristine beauty of rural land, and has since earned distinctions as one of the top five resorts in Southern California by Conde Nast Traveler (2016) and a Travel + Leisure World’s Best Hotel (2015). It’s played host to politicians and celebrities alike, and serves as an ideal romantic retreat for couples, while also being a great getaway spot for families.
Start the day off at Oak Grill with breakfast selections like brioche French toast, a three-egg omelette and fresh-squeezed orange juice. The restaurant is also open for lunch and dinner, and guests dining alfresco can take in views of the 200-year-old oak trees surrounding the area. There are additional dining and cocktail-sipping options on site.
Whether your interests lie in outdoor activities or an art class, the resort delivers in spades. Swing clubs at the Golf Course at Ojai Valley, included in the Top 75 Best Golf Resorts in North America by Golf Digest Magazine (2012). Be sure to schedule a treatment at Spa Ojai, previously designated as a Top 100 Resort Spa in the U.S. by Conde Nast Traveler. The indigenous Kuyam treatment and sauna pay homage to the Native American culture, and other treatments like the four-hand massage and deep cleansing facial are designed to balance mind and body.
After a day on the golf course or relaxing at the spa, kick back in guest room with 300-count Egyptian cotton bedding and cozy bathrobes. Guest rooms were renovated in 2013 and are equipped with audio/video plug-in multimedia stations with USB ports.
Guests are responsible for a $35 nightly resort fee, which covers sought-after amenities such as valet or self-parking, fitness classes and fitness center access, Wi-Fi access and tennis court usage.
