A world class resort which provides a beautiful transition from the busy daily life to ultimate relaxation. The place is top notch in every way, extremely well managed, and you truly feel cared for, loved, and respected. The facilities are first class in every way. Highly recommended.

Ojai Retreat has become one of our favorite places to getaway from LA's bustle! Set on a hilltop overlooking Ojai and the mountains, it's incredibly peaceful with sunrise/sunset views and tons of happy birds frolicking in the native plant gardens. The rooms are all beautiful, spotless, and wonderfully cosy--and tastefully decorated! Several are in stand alone cottages, making the Ojai... More

A breathtaking view of the Ojai mountains and valley below, comfortable and tastefully decorated rooms, nice grounds to wander and hearty breakfast added to the feeling of serenity and peace I felt after stopping here during a multi-week road trip. A wonderful quiet place, I would definitely return again.The receptionist was very welcoming and I used their list of favorite... More

We spent ten peaceful, still nights in The Garden Room at the Ojai retreat. In contrast, the mornings heralded all sorts of bustling activity on our private patio. First to arrive were the chipmunks, sitting on the dry stone wall opposite our window, craning their necks to get a better look at us. Shortly after, the squirrel would drop by.... More

Quiet, out of the way retreat. Perfect for those wanting a place to unwind or a romantic getaway. The Owner's Suite was a nice size and the views, fabulous. There is a private terrace for the suite that offered views and an additional place to rest. Breakfast is included, and offers everything from eggs to pastries. Coffee and tea are... More

My husband and I always prefer to get away from conglomerate hotels and loads of people, so The Ojai Retreat sounded like just the ticket! A very rustic, peaceful and rural setting, with just twelve bungalows, so you know there can never be more than 24 people at one time. Each bungalow has its own spacious private veranda, with table... More

We spent three nights here. Each day we were more relaxed and awed by the views. Our room had all the essentials: great views, comfortable bed, reading lights, desk and comfortable chair. The breakfast served over the two weekend dates was spectacular. Hot eggs, potatoes, tons of bread options, cheeses, granolas, yogurt, fresh and varied fruit, juices, teas, hot chocolate.... More

Spent 3 nights here recently in the Ojai Suite. Very quiet place. A decent size front room with microwave and refridgerator. The bedroom was a decent size with windows showing great views of the valley. The private terrace in the rear of the suite had great views of the valley with trees providing shade on hot days, so i was... More

A retreat in the real sense of the word. Private, quiet, cozy cottages each with a unique view of Ojai valley and surrounding mountains. The view is entrancing enough such that you might not mind spending the day on your private patio watching the quality of light change across the hills and sky. The title of this review "pink moment's... More
