The 45-acre Rancho Valencia, a Relais & Châteaux property located 30 minutes north of downtown San Diego, has reopened this month after a massive renovation. The property refurbished 49 suites and its three-bedroom guest home, which has a private backyard and pool, along with the hotel’s bar, restaurant, ballroom, and more. In addition, Rancho Valencia has opened a new yoga pavilion within the property’s 2.5-acre spa center, which features five pools, 10 treatment rooms, two couple’s rooms, and private gardens. The expansive resort is set among gardens, trails, and olive groves, and offers biking, hiking, croquet, and polo as well as a comprehensive tennis program. Rates start from $490 per night.
