Less than a 40-minute drive from LAX, the 102-acre Terranea is an escape set along the dramatic cliffs of California’s Palos Verdes peninsula that pulls off being two resorts in one. For families there’s an outdoor pool where kids can splash and shriek to their hearts’ content. For couples, there’s an adults-only infinity pool and a serene spa pool, all of which look out over the Pacific. Eight dining options drive the point home; go sophisticated at Mar’sel for Euro-California fusion or chill out at Nelson’s, a funky beachside shack.
Bed & Bath
Large, sun-filled guestrooms feel beachy but luxurious, with high-thread-count sheets on plush king beds, all in muted earth tones with orange and seashell accents. The roomtypes vary from expansive in the Two-Bedroom Ocean View Villas weighing in at 1,850 square feet with a kitchen, living room, fireplace and balcony, to Ocean View Casita Suites, which bump up to 1,100 square feet and add a living room, indoor and outdoor fireplace and views of Catalina Island.
It sounds a bit New Age, but at Terranea, where you’re constantly surrounded by nature, it’s easy to fall into that relaxed, natural rhythm. The sun and ocean air stream through your window each morning to wake you up. And after a day of hiking next to the ocean, kayaking with the hotel’s on-site guide and/or relaxing in the spa — followed by dinner at one of the resort’s high-end restaurants — it’s easy to sleep well.
How to Get There
What a great resort. My niece was getting married and the resort is next to Wayfarers Chapel . The resort is very impressive with a 102 acres . The rooms are well appointed ,clean,quiet,and very close to walking distance to all pools and activities .Staff was excellent and well trained .
Had a wonderful and relaxing stay at Terranea, reconnecting with friends to celebrate our milestone birthdays. All the staff were so warm, welcoming and accommodating. They thought of every detail and made us feel so welcome!
We are local residents who took advantage of Terranea’s special offer for neighbors to book a Sunday night stay at a very reduced rate. The reduced rate did not translate into a reduced experience!! The level of service and the condition of the property were first class and we look forward to repeating our experience in the near future.
