Our Story

Carmel Valley Ranch Yoga

Play is in the Air

Carmel Valley Ranch has been a favorite getaway spot for decades. Recently though, we began to reimagine it as something more than a traditional escape. Because of our amazing location, we believed we had an opportunity to create something truly unique—a place dedicated to the idea of play.

Where else can you play 18 holes of world-class golf, access hundreds of miles of hiking trails, wander around an organic garden, learn about honey bees in an apiary, explore vineyard terroir, enjoy mountain-top yoga, and then relax by your choice of pools—all within walking distance of your suite?

The Undiscovered Carmel Valley

Carmel Valley extends from the coastal village of Carmel-by-the-Sea into the heart of the Santa Lucia Mountains. Because of our location, our climate tends to be a lot warmer, sunnier and less foggy than the coast. This is the same reason the area is such a premier wine growing region—in fact, Monterey County has one of the largest collections of premium vines in California. And at just an hour from Silicon Valley and a short drive from everything the Central Coast has to offer, Carmel Valley is the perfect base camp for any getaway.
