Overview

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.

Beyond

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.

Fabulous retreat

This was our second visit to this beautiful resort and once again, it was a wonderful and relaxing stay. Rooms are top notch; food is amazing and spa is exquisite. A real get away set amidst beautiful mountains and only 90 minutes from Los Angeles.

Expensive, but that isn't important....right?

When you make plans to travel to a place like this, money isn't an issue (or shouldn't be). If you are looking for a deal, look else ware, if you are looking for comfort secluded from the big city and world class food and wine with a beautiful golf course surrounding it all.....you have come to the right place. They also have an amazing spa!
Come, stay and forget all of your worries in this beautiful resort....summer, spring, fall or winter.

Exemplary service
Reviewed 3 weeks ago

Have to say that the staff here is simply outstanding. From the valet who greets you when you arrive to the person who checked us in to the lovely young man who took our bags and gave us a golf shuttle ride to our room. Also the waitress and the bus people at the Oak restaurant couldn’t have been more attentive and wonderful. It was my friends birthday and every single person saw that in the computer and greeted her with a happy birthday. Also we arrived in the room and there was a cute little cupcake with a note. I have to say that the service here is fantastic. Also I had to call the property before we arrived because I had broken my fibula. Every single person that I spoke to made sure that our room location was going to be perfect considering my injury. Also we asked for extra pillows to prop my foot with. Overall very excellent. Kudos to the manager!

Disappointing
Reviewed 4 weeks ago

Overall, we don’t rate this 5 star establishment, far from it. It took 3 hours to find a room that was acceptable. Some awful rooms throughout the resort. We finally settled on the fourth room we saw. The service was slow and understaffed throughout. Housekeeping was inconsistent. Several times they were a no show for turn down service. Food was fair, nothing special, greatly over priced. I’d skip this hotel. There are better options for a SoCal spa weekend.

Good but small things missing

This is lovely location and good sized hotel rooms.

The bath tub is huge.

Food at the restaurants Olivelia was great too.

Needs some small additions like hooks in the bathrooms to hang your clothes, this should be standard for all hotels. There was no slippers in the room either for this rating of hotel again should be standard.

The breakfast i ordered the night before came in late as i had to leave to catch a flight so was not able to enjoy the pancakes and fruit.
