Recently named Travel + Leisure’s No. 2 Top Resort in California, Rancho Valencia Resort & Spa has reopened its gates, welcoming guests back to its 45 sprawling acres with wide open spaces, lush gardens and groves. The acclaimed property debuted with the highest standards of responsible luxury in the industry and has ensured the safety and well-being of its employees and guests as its utmost priority. The resort has also launched a new enhanced wellness division with five full-time Wellness Ambassadors as part of the reopening.
“Our serene setting and sprawling grounds, makes us beautifully positioned for guests looking to spend their time with us enjoying a luxury resort that can deliver all of our amenities from dining to spa and fitness, outdoors,” said General Manager Coni Thornburg.
Rancho Valencia continues to elevate its curated experiences with the recent expansion of its outdoor programming to include increased al fresco dining options, outdoor fitness classes and spa services set in nature. The resort’s sumptuous al fresco dining experiences have been reimagined to include socially distanced table arrangements across its hacienda-inspired Fountain Patio, Pony Room Patio and Croquet Lawn. The Pony Room offers the ultimate experience this summer on the lawn with market lights, cabanas, firepits, live music, signature cocktails and full dinner on Thursday, Friday and Saturday evenings. The Pony Room is available by reservation only and is also available for Pony-To-Go orders for lunch and dinner.
A weekly class schedule is available featuring more than 90 fitness, spin, TRX, yoga and meditation classes, all held outdoors. In addition, the resort’s Five-Star Spa is offering outdoor spa experiences with a curated spa treatment menu of facials and massages only. The resort’s world-renowned tennis program is also available for guests as a safe, socially distanced activity.
Rancho Valencia is committed to responsible luxury and creating individual experiences depending on the guest’s request. These can include contact-free check-in or full valet service, while always providing the highest standards of safety and peace of mind. All of the resort’s luxury casitas undergo enhanced cleaning protocols. In addition to every surface of the casita cleaned, all high-contact areas receive an intricate cleaning following CDC guidelines. For added peace of mind, each of the casitas are individually heated and cooled with its own dedicated HVAC system.
All staff and guests have a shared commitment in practicing the new social distancing, facial covering and wellness guidelines while on-property. In addition, every guest and staff member is temperature checked and screened for symptoms at the resort’s gates.
