Our Team's Favorite Resorts Staycation Hotspots in California

Need a Little R&R? Here’re Our Favorite Staycation Destinations



Does Coronavirus have your vacation plans on hold this year? If you’re needing a getaway, but want to stick close due to travel restrictions and safety concerns, consider a local weekend trip. Whether you’re in for a three-day excursion with your besties, a family fun adventure, or a solo trip to de-stress, here are our favorite resorts and staycations you can relax at without leaving California. 

1. Pet-Friendly Oasis 

Omni La Costa Resort & Spa, Carlsbad



One of SoCal’s finest, the Omni La Costa Resort is crème de la crème when it comes to luxury staycations. Its award-winning spa, two championship golf courses, and eight sparkling pools, and 17 tennis courts are some of the reasons it made our list. Because it’s located in Carlsbad, just a bit north of San Diego, the weather is pretty much perfect year-round. It goes without saying that no staycation would be complete with heading to the resort’s spa for a relaxing massage, but the Omni tops it off with on-site meditation sessions at their Chopra Center. Lastly, Omni wins our hearts because it’s also pet-friendly. Omni Hotels & Resorts


2. Spanish Colonial with Adventurous Activities

Ojai Valley Inn, Ojai



If you opt for a more northern getaway, one of our top picks is the Ojai Valley Inn where its 1920s Spanish colonial-style resort gives the best of casual elegance. It features an award-winning spa and deluxe suites with fireplaces and private balconies overlooking its championship golf course and nearby mountains. If you’re seeking a bit of adventure, Ojai Valley Inn offers a beekeeping and honey tasting experience, several arts, aromatherapy, cooking, and macrame classes, as well as live music under the resort’s massive oak tree.

3. Fine Dining and Beach Views

Pelican Hill Resort, Newport Beach 



Perched upon 504 acres of unrivaled coastal beauty, Pelican Hill is set apart as a world unto itself, offering a sanctuary of seclusion, a feast for the senses, and a retreat for family and friends. The private, residential-style Villas and Bungalows are all spacious and casually elegant, with an attentive staff there to anticipate your needs at every turn. Resort amenities are designed with you in mind, providing all the comforts of home with the activities and relaxation of an ultra-luxury vacation away. The Resort At Pelican Hill

4. Wine Country Meets Luxury 

San Ysidro Ranch - Santa Barbara 



Nestled in the Montecito foothills of SoCal’s wine country, San Ysidro Ranch will give you a tranquil vacation filled with natural beauty, romantic heritage, and classic luxury you deserve. This Santa Barbara hideaway has a history (and maybe a little bit of myth) as it is said to have accommodated Vivien Leigh and Sir Laurence Olivier as they exchanged vows as well as John and Jackie Kennedy for their honeymoon. While that’s uncertain, one thing is for sure, San Ysidro Ranch is the ultimate relaxing garden-style getaway. San Ysidro Rancha Ty Warner Property
