From cozy fireside s'mores, to luxurious butler-drawn baths for two, to outdoor adventures along the cliffs, this coastal retreat is the ultimate destination for those who wish to celebrate their special someone for more than just a day.
Set atop a dramatic ocean bluff and overlooking 50 miles of sweeping California coastline, the resort is the perfect place for an unforgettable proposal. Those looking to surprise someone special with a non-Valentine's Day proposal can work with the resort's expert event planners to arrange a stealthy proposal from start-to-finish. From an extravagant cliff-side affair featuring a white grand piano flown in from out-of-state, to an intimate moment in The Ritz-Carlton Suite with roses and champagne, the possibilities are endless for one of life's most precious moments.
For a private, soothing indulgence, the resort's bath butler can draw a special bath for two in the stately marble soaking tub (available in all guest rooms and suites). Guests can relax and revel in each other's company while unwinding in a luxurious bath, complete with custom-designed hydro-aromatherapy bath crystals infused with lavender essential oils grown along the coast. Additionally, luxurious “Pacific Fog” bath bombs – hand-made exclusively for The Ritz-Carlton, Half Moon Bay by local artisan Elizabeth W – are given to guests to take home as a distinct #RCMemory.
S'mores by the Fire Pit
Surrounded by panoramic views of the Pacifica Ocean, couples desiring a touch of nostalgia can indulge in s'mores around one of the resort's many fire pits while sipping on a glass of local California wine and listening to the crashing ocean waves. With premium blankets – big enough for two – to keep each other warm, couples can cozy up by the fire and make a whimsical treat together.
Romantic Adventure Along the Coast
With miles of California coastline in its backyard, The Ritz-Carlton, Half Moon Bay offers easy access to the iconic Coastal Trail that runs up and down the coast. Guests and couples alike can reserve bikes at the resort and take them for a romantic ride overlooking the ocean. After a leisurely bike ride (or stroll), guests can return to the resort for “magic hour” at sunset, enjoying premium beverages and light fare on the Ocean Terrace before a delicious dinner in Navio or The Conservatory.
