Ojai Valley Inn & Spa is the quintessential Ojai escape for Angelenos seeking a relaxing break from hectic city life. Opened in 1923, the historic resort pampers its guests from the moment they arrive, as a golf cart whisks them away to their room through the beautiful and sprawling grounds. Forget your worries at three relaxing pools, an award-winning spa or a world-class golf course, and take advantage of special perks such as wine happy hour, romantic candle-lit room service and bike rentals for the picturesque paths that lead to downtown. Beyond romance and serenity (of which there’s plenty), the Inn also caters to children (kids’ camp, teen lounge and art classes available) and pups (look for the dog menus at some of the resorts’ restaurants).
