Hops-infused Heaven at the Rancho Bernardo Inn

As 2015 comes into sight, wellness is a term—and a goal—on the minds of spa owners and spa-goers alike. With a view to luring the latter, the Rancho Bernardo Inn in Southern California recently unveiled its Wellness packages: stays in newly remodeled rooms, brimming with spa amenities for guests, in a bungalow overlooking the resort’s expansive spa grounds. We were lucky enough to escape the office for a few days to check out one such package—and sample the spa’s “made fresh daily” treatments to boot.

The saline pool leads seamlessly to the spa where treatments take place in individual garden casitas, a lovely experience with the sound of water in the nearby fountains and wind in the palms. My Arnica Intensive Massage left me drooling.

San Diego, Part 1

Day 10 of the LivingWells California adventure began with an hour and a half drive from Palm Springs to the Rancho Bernardo Inn, which is located in the picturesquely suburban northern climes of San Diego County. Fittingly, the timing of my arrival coincided with the one-year anniversary of Rancho Bernardo’s Mediterranean-themed Avant Kitchen helmed by Argentinian Chef Tomás Baistrocchi. To mark the occasion Chef Tomás and his team held a little soiree for a few guests to preview the restaurant’s fall menu and I was fortunate enough to be among them.
