This was our first visit to the Ojai Valley Inn & Spa. We weren't familiar with the area and did not know what to expect. What we experienced was fun, adventurous, and completely pampering. Apparently the Inn was built in the 50's and many famous people came here on a regular basis. Since then, there have been continual updates. The views of the golf course and mountains from anywhere in the resort are stunning. Getting around the hotel was an adventure in itself with all the levels, outside elevators, terraces, and hidden entrances. Our room was a large king bedroom with a balcony, huge fireplace, and was very private. The design of the hotel is old California. We dined at each of the restaurants and bars on the property and the food and service were great. Our favorite highlight was watching the reflection of the sun going down from a table in the bar looking down one of the fairways. Wow. If you have never seen the "Pink Flash" (when the sunset turns bright pink and reflects off the fog surrounding the mountains in the distance) you owe it to yourself to check it out. We really enjoyed our visit to the resort and really look forward to coming back.

I had the privilege of staying at Casa Elar for 4 nights in June with family friends. This property is absolutely stunning in every way. It seems as though the designers had every detail in mind when building out this estate and luxury was around every corner. From the available amenities (breakfast brought in daily, pool, sitting areas, spacious suites) to the staff, it was just one of the most luxurious stays of my life. I'd like to think I'm very well-versed in luxury accommodations but this home just took the cake. A few things I would improve given the chance: 4 bedrooms doesn't seem like enough for such a grand residence. While we used the "nanny quarters" which is a nice apartment above the kitchen, I think at least 6 bedrooms would have been better considering the price (about $15k/night). Also, some variation in the breakfast brought in would have been nice. There was some confusion about how to get around but overall the staff was very attentive and the grounds beautiful. It was a very relaxing vacatiuon! I did get a treatment at the spa and found it a little marginal for the price. The therapist was not very friendly and the spa itself didn't seem so expansive that I was "wow'd."

My friend and I went for a gal's getaway for a massage, lunch and a night at the inn. What a fantastic getaway. As soon as we arrived I felt like we were a hundred miles from anywhere. We sat by the pool, had the best massage of my life and enjoyed a beautiful room and dinner. The grounds are beautiful, the golf course meticulous, and we actually visited all of the pools. The service is fantastic, as there is always someone to help you, or take you anywhere on the property in their golf cart. This place is the perfect spot to relax, take some time for yourself, and be treated like royalty. Great Experience!!!!

My husband and I stayed at the Ojai Valley Inn and Spa for several days in June. We had not been to this part of the world before so it was all new. We explored the town at bit, on bike. There were few nice restaurants, but that was it. The real highlight was the hotel stay. It is a large property, but it was lovely. The rooms were large and nicely done. There are lots of places to sit and enjoy the views and landscape. Lots of lavender so the grounds not only looked, but smelled great. The main fine dining restaurant was closed so we were a little worried that our choices were limited to the Oak Grill, but the food was terrific. We played golf and while I myself am not a big golfer, my husband loved it. We had a signature mud treatment at the spa which was novel and fun, but once is enough. There are several nice pools dotted throughout the property.This place is very much for grown-ups and it is lovely.

This was the last stop on our vacation. The previous stop being Ventana in Big Sur. As hard as it was to leave Big Sur, Ojai was an absolute delight. The property is truly gorgeous. The landscape of the property, including the golf course, is amazing, with plenty of mature oak and sycamore trees. and the natural landscape of the surrounding area makes for amazing views. Our room was great with a very comfortable bed and black out curtains that aided in excellent night's sleep each night. We rented bikes on property and rode to the ocean (about 15 miles to the west). The lap pool at the spa is a quiet place to relax. We found that there were at least two big conferences going on plus a lot of families with tons of small children, so that was a place to escape these aspects.

Room Tip: We were in room 630 which was around toward the backside of the resort near the spa and overlooking the golf course.
