Natural habitats peacefully co-exist with majestic splendor at L.A.’s oceanfront resort. 

The Setting

Sweeping views of the Pacific Ocean grace the view as far as the eye can see. Perched along the bluffs of Rancho Palos Verdes, Terranea is in a league completely of its own – an architectural wonder standing tall along the Pacific Coastline. As Los Angeles County’s only true resort destination, it offers all of the amenities anticipated of a luxury resort: elegantly appointed accommodations, a world-class spa, and an executive golf course. Additionally, be sure not to miss its eight unique dining experiences, four saltwater pools, hiking trails, Tide Pool Kids Club, and Adventure Concierge. Did we mention that whale, sea lion, and seal sightings are the normal?

Sharing kindness to Mama Earth, Terranea is also known as an eco-friendly resort aligned with Destination Earth environmental initiatives to minimize the resort’s footprint. Its sustainable efforts help to protect and enhance the biodiversity of its natural ecosystem and wildlife and plant habitats and promote recycling throughout the resort with a goal of 0 percent waste. They also ensure the purchase of local and organic food and beverages, when possible. A hotel as KIND as it is beautiful? Yes, please.

Sleep and Sanctuary

One of Terranea’s core principles it to create an authentic sense of place through design that reflects the beauty from its natural surroundings. The 102-acre estate features 582 guestrooms and suites splendidly situated on the southern tip of the Palos Verdes Peninsula. You’ll find its rooms and suites bathed in natural light and a tranquil ambience with spacious balconies. Because of its positioning, the resort offers a 270-degree ocean view, with 90 percent of guestrooms offering a sights of the majestic Pacific.

Eat. Pray. Eat.

If the luxurious accommodations weren't already enough, Terranea boasts some of the most incredible and environmentally conscious eateries in Southern California. Each restaurant has its own flair, drawing emphasis to flavors from Southern California, Mexico, Japan, and Italy. We hope you've brought an appetite! A core principle of Terranea’s dining program includes sourcing food with a FLOSS philosophy of Fresh, Local, Organic, Seasonable and Sustainable.

Mar'sel - Enjoy an aromatic take on farm-to-table to cuisine at Mar'sel. Helmed by Chef de Cuisine Andrew Vaughan, Mar'sel puts focus on seasonal ingredients, creating flavors that take your palate to new levels. Many of the herbs used are grown on-site as well, making the menu one born on sustainability. Mar'sel also features craft cocktails and local microbrews so pairing options are endless! PS: the fennel soup is a crowd favorite.

Catalina Kitchen - With a view of Catalina Island through the window, Catalina Kitchen features the flavors of the California Coast with New American food featuring dishes that include fresh, wild-caught salmon, and tasty salads. Dishes are simply composed with high-quality, seasonal, and locally sourced ingredients. The kitchen is open too, providing excitement as you watch your dishes being prepared before your very eyes.

Nelson's - Another one of Terranea's flagship establishments and known as one of the top ten eco-friendly bars in the United States, Nelson's offers classic twists on your favorite beverages with unsurpassed freshness. Have you ever had a whiskey sour with locally sourced honey from a bee farm just within walking distance?

Lobby Bar & Lounge - Located, well, you guessed it, adjacent to Terranea's lobby, Lobby Bar & Lounge offers a curated selection of local beers, wines, and cocktails. The indoor/outdoor patio will provide you with a relaxed atmosphere while you sip and talk in serenity. Try “The Cove,” a refreshing vodka drink with basil, celery bitters, and lime. It will take your breath away, only returning to utter the words “another round, please.”

Bashi - The only on-site restaurant that features contemporary Asian flavors, Bashi's ambiance is laid back, with beautiful wooden tables and contemporary wicker chairs. Signature dishes include the garlic noodles, and crispy whole fish. Let's not forget – all dishes are locally sourced and dependent on seasonal availability, making the taste exceptional and keeping the carbon footprint to a minimum.

Spa Café - Healthy eating has never been so easy! Located adjacent to the spa pool, Spa Café offers pre and post workout smoothies, salads, fresh juices, and sandwiches. There'a also poolside cabanas and a fire pit, where you can relax and recharge. We love its green juice a hearty blend of green apple, kale, spinach, lemon, parsley, and pear.A  great juice to clean your body and start the day.

Sea Beans - An artisan café conveniently located at the entry of the resort? Don't mind if we indulge! Terranea's done it again with their one-of-a-kind cafe offering everything from roasted coffee to house-made pastries, salads, and soups. With such fresh ingredients, it may be hard to decide on what to order. Its local iced coffee is ahhmazing, too. Try it with a little vanilla almond milk, for the sweet-tooth inclined. Don't say we didn't warn you.

Cielo Point - Situated as a poolside bar, fine dining takes a different spin at Cielo Point. With quintessential poolside staples like ahi poke, and seasonal cocktails to boot, Cielo Point is an ideal location to unwind with a drink in hand. The local seafood macaroni salad is to die for, and the Tiki a la Cielo (white rum, Gin, lime, passion fruit, Frangelico, dark rum, pineapple, orange, cherry, grenadine) ranks as one of the best summer cocktails, at least in our book.

The Art of De-Stressing

If the views of the ocean alone aren't enough to have you feeling like the sultan of SoCal, surely Terranea's long dossier of amenities will be the icing on the cake. Whether you're in the mood for a swim, hike, or even a long day of nothing except sitting by the sea, Terranea has it all.

The Spa at Terranea - Give both body and mind a much-needed polish and prepare for a soul reawakening. The Spa at Terranea boasts 50,000 square feet of oceanfront bliss: 25 treatment rooms, three VIP spa suites, private adult spa pool and cabanas, movement studios and more. Try one of its recommended three-part treatments – Flickering Embers, set against a private oceanfront backdrop. Designed to balance and detoxify, bask in the pacifying warmth of a nutrient-rich volcanic ash body wrap. Say goodbye to toxins as mud draws them away, leaving skin with a re-mineralized glow. Follow with a plunge into a copper tub steeped with essential oils and magnesium. End with a massage to seal in all healing benefits.

Fitness & Wellness Center - At this cutting edge, 5,000 square foot facility, you'll find state-of-the-art gym equipment like treadmills, ellipticals, and bikes, as well as many unique fitness classes. Some of the classes include Aqua Zumba, Aquatic Conditioning, Yoga, Hiking, and Pilates. Whatever it is that you enjoy, you'll surely find it in some facet at the Fitness & Wellness Center.

Salon - Using eco-friendly beauty products (also cruelty-free!), the salon offers manicures, pedicures, and hair and makeup treatments. You'll transform under the hands of some of Southern California's best cosmetologists. Each treatment is catered to you personally, with the registered professionals working to reveal your inner beauty.

Pointe Discovery - Offering a unique shopping experience inspired by the culture of Southern California, guests can browse a large collection of active and swim wear, jewelry from local designers, and educational toys. Don't forget to grab Grandma a monogrammed mug!

Marea - the Spanish and Italian word for tide, is another exquisite retail experience that features high-end resort wear and adventure apparel.

Vista Pool - Adjacent to Mar'sel, the Vista Pool offers a saltwater pool and jacuzzi that overlooks the Pacific Ocean

Spa Pool- In the heart of the spa complex, the Spa Pool has intimate seating areas, private cabanas, and fire pits all circled around a 25-meter pool. Dive in!

Cielo Point Pool - Looking for an adults-only sanctuary with exotic cocktails? Explore a chic atmosphere, amazing views, and a poolside fire pit. Be adventurous and try a fancy libation, or stick to your classics like a Cadillac Margarita, extra salt.

Resort Pool -  An ideal haven  for families to relax, you’ll  ensure the kiddos are having a great, safe time. Kids will love the 140-foot water slide and splashing around in the splash zone. For the adults, there are also two jacuzzis, a fire pit, and a poolside food and drink menu.

Aqua-Terra Adventures - Explore the pristine waters of Palos Verdes with an adventurous mindset. Terranea can arrange for you to hit the sea by kayak,paddle-board or go on a guided whale watching tour. If hopping in the ocean sounds a bit too, well, “Jaws” music inducing, then we suggest trying a guided bike ride or exploring one of the oceanside trails.

Kids Activities - Kids will have the time of their lives at Terranea (yes, we are serious!). For the most hands-on experience, Terranea offers the Tide Pool Adventure Camp which involves golf lessons, art projects, swimming in the kids pool, and hiking on the glorious coastal trails. This may be a win-win for parents and kids alike.

Golf Course - Terranea's flagship course, The Links, is a beautifully kept 9-hole par-3 golf course. Crafted eloquently into the hills of Palos Verdes, the course achieves the very reason golf is so enjoyable – amazing scenery and elegant design. Looking to shake some rust off that swing? The Links at Terranea also offers golf lessons for all levels so you can turn that Happy Gilmore into a Mickelson.
