Going to LA any time soon? Think about taking a couple of extra days to visit the Ojai Valley Inn and Spa.
This is one of the most delightfully serene resorts I’ve visited recently. And the staff is beyond helpful and welcoming! Even their most basic guest room gives you the impression of sinful indulgence—but if a room with a fireplace is available and within your budget, go for it!
Whatever your muse—painting, golf, hiking, spa—you’ll find it here. Or you can relax on your private patio and do absolutely nothing.
Be sure to take advantage of offerings at the Artist Cottage! Let Georgia, one of their delightful instructors, help you paint yourself a lovely silk scarf as a memento of your trip—no talent required, I swear!
Or indulge in a day of pampering at their world-class spa. Located about 60 miles from LA or about 25 miles from Santa Barbara. For details, visit www.ojairesort.com
