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. 

Location

The
ultimate West Coast paradise, Malibu is world-famous for its many
celebrity residents and its pristine beaches against the majestic
California cliffs. Malibu waves are some of the best-known across the

activities to helicopter rides, this city is the

Over-evaluate! So-so
Reviewed 22 hours ago

Compare to other resort, compare to price, here is just pretend to be luxury resort. I strongly recommend other accomodation. First of all, staffs, they seemed that not enough service education. Reception told extra-bed possible, later, cauze of fire-escape, no cottage possible to put extra-bed. All staffs are just pretend to be kind-they don't listen to quests. However, there is one good thing: Breakfast! Fantastic!

Calamigos Calm

We got married at Calamigos, and so stayed at the guest ranch to celebrate our first anniversary. It was heavenly! Everything is high quality and the staff are super friendly and accommodating. The food was delicious, and we loved that there were areas to get away from the groups partying and just experience a calm retreat-like experience. The Malibu Cafe was really fun, and we enjoyed walking the grounds and hanging out at the beach. Highly recommend to anyone looking for a staycation that lives in LA (like us) or those coming in from out of town!

An oasis setting

The property is extremely well maintained with very nice grounds. The included breakfast selections are fabulous. The layout of the rooms, while modular, were very nice. The stay is costly and will include an added on resort fee and parking. On site food while delicious is also pricey, but all are things to be expected at a higher end resort. The staff was helpful and accommodating. The pool at the front was busy, but the larger and warmer pool at the back for the property allowed for more room and privacy.

Perfect get away

We absolutely loved our stay at Calamigos. We stayed in a bungalow and the room was amazing and spacious. The grounds are gorgeous and there are so many different things to do from the pools, hiking, and the beach club. Almost felt like we were on the grounds from dirty dancing! We were celebrating our "minimoon" vacation and the hotel had glasses of sparking rose for us upon arrival and even sent an additional bottle of champagne to our room. The staff was incredibly friendly and helpful. The breakfast served was perfect and had a ton of options as well. The property is also totally dog friendly so we were able to bring our dog literally everywhere with us from breakfast to the pool and the beach-- they require them to be on leash, but thats no big deal. We will for sure be coming back-- my favorite new spot!

Simply Perfect

I don't know how it's taken me so long to discover this place. We did 4th of July 2 day getaway (staycation we live in Los Angeles) and this place is every bit as good as San Ysidro Ranch in Montecito and half the price. It's actually very similar to SYR in accommodations, setting, vibe, excellent food and service. We stayed in a cottage and it was beautifully appointed and tranquil. The chic mid-century architecture throughout the property, separate buildings sprinkled amongst the woodsy landscape makes you feel as though you are far removed and yet it's so close to LA. Even on a busy 4th of July holiday it's not crowded, plenty of space and accommodations in the public areas of the resort. The gyms are well appointed, (3) pools, wonderful service, Leo's Bar was a GREAT restaurant. This place simply put is: absolute perfection.
