Golf, tennis and spa days come easy at this Mission-style retreat built into Ojai’s rolling green hillsides

The Look

Spread over several buildings that flow down a green hillside into the valley, the Ojai Valley Inn & Spa was originally commissioned by an early-20th-century glass tycoon from Toledo. It looks like a perfect California village, composed entirely of white stucco and terra cotta, a Mission-style utopia for those who want golf clubs in their hands or slices of cucumber covering their eyes.

Bed & Bath

The 308 rooms are all spacious, all with views of the manicured grounds or surrounding hills. Opt for the Fireplace Shangri-La Rooms or Mini Suites for 550 and 625 square feet, respectively, fireplaces (even in SoCal, a fire feels cozy) and verandas or balconies with views of the Los Padres National Forest.


There’s nothing wrong with spending the weekend camped out on a deck chair by the pool. But if you want to stay active, it’s not a problem here. One day can be devoted to tennis at the expansive tennis center, another to golf at the spectacular 18-hole championship course carved into the hillsides in 1923. And, of course, there’s the spa. The best-known treatment is called Kuyam, and it involves a mud cleanse, a lot of heat and a guided group meditation. Another fave is the Abhyanga Four-Handed Massage, which employs the healing hands of two top therapists.

Delightful and stylish resort

We did not stay at the resort but had a tour and stayed for lunch. The outdoor restaurant has a delightful setting overlooking parts of the resort owned golf course. The 3 of us were glad to have selected only 2 plates as the portions were huge. Nicely presented and tasty. Very attentive service.

I've taken advantage of the various offerings of this beautifully located inn over the years - first the spa, then the Inn and now the golf course. All are amazing, the food and service are exceptional and I try to go back there as often as I can.

Did that really just happen?

I checked in yesterday with my husband and four year old to attend a wedding this weekend. I rarely write reviews during a stay but an incident that just happened a mere minutes ago has left me in shock and in disbelief. My family and I had walked from our room over to the Pixie Pool and were waiting by shuttle stop 9 for a ride back to our hotel room building. It had been over 15 minutes and no white passenger shuttle/golf cart had come by so we were relieved when a non-passenger (smaller) cart stopped for us. The employee driving was nice enough to stop for us and also another hotel guest who wanted a ride to the fitness center. My daughter and I were getting into the back of the cart facing backwards and I sat down and was about to get my daughter in her seat when the driver started to drive away quickly. My daughter, husband and I were screaming and she was dragged for a second before I was able to pick her up into the cart. That was most terrifying experience of my life and my daughter and husband are still shaken up. I shudder to think what would’ve happened had I not had a secure grip on her hands. She would’ve lost her teeth or sustained a terrible head injury. The worst part of this experience is the driver who identified himself as Charles did not apologize or seem concerned in the slightest. I am appalled by his disregard for safety and common courtesy. This incident has my entire family distressed during what should’ve been a relaxing and celebratory weekend.
