Overview

An elevated ranch experience at a brand-new getaway in the hills of Malibu, near SoCal’s beaches

The Lowdown

If you think you’ll be corralling cattle and feeding livestock at this
ranch, think again. The only area activities that brand-new Calamigos
Guest Ranch offers are slightly more elevated, and guests here come less
to rough it than to glam it up. Your cottage here is set in the hills
of Malibu, where the views are spectacular and there’s tons to do.
Experience first-class excursions, like sunrise yoga, helicopter rides,
wine safaris, whale-watching, surfing and more, all with the guidance of
the hotel concierge team.
You can get quite the sense of the breezy local lifestyle, just sticking
around. Enjoy lawn games, paddleboats and horseback riding as you
explore the 120 acres at your fingertips, dine at two restaurants, or
make a Swedish-massage treatment appointment at WellFit spa. If there’s
something else you want to try, that concierge team’s at your beck and
call – after all, for a true taste of the Big Boo, you’ll need to be
treated like a superstar.

Cottages

The cottages of Calamigos Guest Ranch combine
beachy chic with modern luxury, featuring stylish wooden furnishings,
luxe fabrics and simple décor. A soft color palette and your choice of a
soft or firm king bed make these accommodations the perfect retreat
after a long day on the beach or exploring Malibu. You’ll even have a
private courtyard and a terrace with breathtaking vistas.You’ll also have maple-finish wood
ceilings and a flat-screen TV. Your bedroom will have a private deck and your bathroom will have a raised marble vanity and rain shower. Premium Private cottages extend the outdoor terrace space, with outdoor
lounge furniture, and have a king bed and sofas. The Signature Single Suite cottages are
especially spacious, at 450 to 500 square feet indoors, and offer an oversized studio-style room, a separate tub, a fireplace and unobstructed
Santa Monica mountain views.Choose the Two Bedroom Suite bungalows for king beds, two full bathrooms, two private indoor terraces, a fireplace and an oversized living space.

Dining

Calamigos Guest Ranch has one restaurant up and running, with another due to open in the not too distant future. Malibu
Café is an eclectic outdoor eatery where every meal comes with a side of
paddleboat rides and lawn games. When it opens, the property’s signature steakhouse will serve up classic
American fare, exotic meats and crafted cocktails. Plates from the ranch’s casual menu
can also be delivered to your cottage, if you’d prefer to dine in
private. 

Spa

WellFit Malibu Spa at Calamigos Ranch
is the perfect retreat after a day of beach-bumming, wine tasting or
hiking the cliffs. Traditional treatments like the Swedish massage combined with unexpected
offerings like chiropractic care ensure your body
will be completely rejuvenated during your stay.

Amazing! Loved every minute
Reviewed 3 days ago

An hour’s drive from East LA and you’re in a luxury resort. 3 pools, plenty is space and reminded us of Soho Farmhouse in England. Except they have Tesla’s’ to drive you around instead of BMW’s.

Great massages in the spacious spas - mine was with Kelsey who sorted my tired body out and refreshed me, ready for the weekend.

Love the the beach club with the secret tunnel under the road to the beach. Shuttle driven by Joseph, who knows a lot of the local history and very helpful guy.

Although there was about 3 weddings going on which worried us. They cleverly put them in areas which don’t impact quiet vacation seekers.

All the staff which helpful and efficient. Food good, could do with a few more vegan options and maybe the ‘Impossible’ vegan brand - my fav!

We had a sweet little cottage. Comfy bed and crisp linens. Lots of nice little touches including, Evian, mints, hats and lipsalve as parting gifts.

Although Malibu was hit by the fire, lush greenery and wild flowers are abundant. Proving that nature always finds a way to survive, Only the trunks of some burnt trees to tell the tragic story. The nearby hikes are beautiful and we did the Soltice Cannon waterfall hike which starts and ends across the the beach house and then had a delicious lunch there. Very fun relaxing time and look forward to going back!

It’s hard to put into words how WONDERFUL our stay was. The staff it incredibly accommodating and greet you with a warm smile. We arrived to our room with a hand written note and champagne. After spending time at The Malibu Cafe we returned back to our room with a picnic basket of cookies and wine. It was such a pleasant surprise. This hotel focuses on all the details to make ones stay special. Thank you Calamingos Ranch for hosting us and making our trip incredibly special. ♥️

I brought my three kids (ages 13, 8, 7) here for a weekend retreat for my birthday. I cannot say enough about Calamigos!!! The staff was great, the amenities top notch, and the cottage we had was so spacious. And on top of it all, the property was nestled perfectly in the most beautiful area. Super serene! We will be back!

Perfect weekend relaxation
Reviewed 2 weeks ago

We stayed at the Calamigos ranch for an extended weekend for a family wedding. The ranch was a perfect place to relax before and after the wedding. The pool is amazing with one pool heated to 97 and the other regular temperature. Sitting at the pool, we were treated to a complimentary 5 minute massage, lavender infused ice cubes so that we could cool down and raspberry sorbet. The attention to detail is fantastic. The staff is well trained and friendly. The valets were exceptional and hustled. Our car was waiting the next day for our early flight. The rooms are not huge but ample and cozy with nice appointed marble bathrooms. We had an amazing time.

Anniversary weekend

Had a great time at the ranch resort. Our room was beautiful and our concierge along with the staff treated us wonderfully. Harrison B. went above and beyond for us at the cafe restaurant and made our trip so memorable. Even provided us with extra poo bags for our dog Charlotte. Super dog friendly. Exceeded our expectations!
