California’s breathtaking Ojai Valley has long been a gathering place for the health and fitness minded. An important part of Ojai’s history includes the 220-acre Ojai Valley Inn that was originally created as a world-class golf destination, but has developed over the past eight decades into a full-service resort with endless activities for all ages. In fact, Condé Nast Traveler readers consistently rank the Ojai Valley Inn & Spa in their annual Gold List among the top resorts in California.

Variety of Spa treatments

At Spa Ojai, guests choose from a wide variety of spa treatments, including facials, massage,  and body treatments. This fabulous spa is consistently ranked one of the ten best spa’s in the United States by many travel experts. A salon is located in the Spa Village for manicures, pedicures, and makeup and hair services. A full program of Mind/Body classes for adults is available including yoga, spinning, dance, and t’ai chi, as well as nature walks and power hikes. The spa’s Artist’s Cottage and Apothecary offers classes including silverpoint drawing, watercolor, silk scarf painting and mixed media  – all taught by local artists from the community.

Guests at the Ojai Valley Inn & Spa can recapture the serenity and natural beauty that the Oak Grove, Chumash and early Spanish settlers discovered in the Ojai Valley along nearby horseback riding trails and on the hiking and biking trails of the Los Padres National Forest. Hikers will enjoy guided excursions through the surrounding National Forest into areas that have, for millennia, been seen only by the hawks, raccoons, squirrels, coyotes and bobcats living there.

Sporting activities on site

In addition to golf on the renowned George Thomas-designed 18-hole course, the Inn boasts a complete tennis center, with four hard courts and a full service pro shop. Other activities include guided lake fishing and kayaking, plus – just minutes away – a variety of beach activities such as sailing, deep-sea fishing and surfing lessons. Excursions to the Santa Barbara wine country, Santa Barbara Zoo, or local Los Angeles-area amusement parks and museums are easily booked through the Concierge.

Since 1923, vacationing guests have sought the tranquil pleasures of the historic Ojai Valley Inn & Spa, a AAA Five Diamond property located on 220 tree-shaded acres 35 miles south of Santa Barbara.
