The Ritz-Carlton® - Half Moon Bay, California
Our Spa Review:
Our Spa Experience:
While at the spa I enjoyed a Swedish massage with a masseuse named Kim who was wonderful. She was professional and skilled. It was one of the best massages I have had in a long time. Because the spa atmosphere was so conducive to relaxation, I was able to fully relax and escape the rest of the world for awhile.
The hotel is built on the cliffs overlooking the Pacific Ocean providing breathtaking views from many places in the hotel.
The golf course was also designed to take advantage of the sweeping views of the ocean. Many of the golf holes are along the cliffs overlooking the crashing waves.
We had dinner at Novio, one of the premier Ritz restaurants. We chose to dine at sunset to take full advantage of the beautiful sunset. We enjoyed a view of the ocean while enjoying our exquisitely prepared dinners of lobster and halibut. There were many excellent wines to choose from including dessert wines which is a special treat. For dessert we enjoyed the chocolate cake which was heavenly!
A picnic on the cliffs at sunset is another romantic way to spend time together at the Ritz. This terrific picnic spot is located on the hotel property, footsteps from the hotel courtyard and available to all guests for their viewing pleasure.
You can stroll along the coast viewing the crashing waves and the gorgeous sweeping ocean view. There are many benches along the way where you can stop and have your own private View Point.
The hotel courtyard along the cliffs can be a relaxing place to read a book and enjoy the company of your family and friends. A jacuzzi is nearby for your bubbly pleasure after a hard day of golf.
There is live entertainment in the hotel lounges in the evening after your day of golf and spa activities.
