I highly recommend this beautiful Ojai Retreat. I came here with my boyfriend and we had the most relaxing weekend. It is so peaceful there, the gardens and pathways are stunning, the rooms are nice and clean, I actually loved that there wasn't a TV or any electronics. You really get a true escape here. The breakfasts are so delicious,... More

The Garden at the Retreat felt like Paradise. The Garden Room felt like Sanctuary. If you need to connect with nature; if you need to regroup, rejuvenate, and heal your SELF, this is the place to stay. It was a joyful, peaceful, and loving experience. Thank you for making my stay unforgettable. The Visitor from Redondo Beach, Ca.

I highly recommend the beautiful Ojai Retreat. You can tell that many loving hands have taken care of this property over the years. The views are gorgeous; there are gentle trails to hike; a waterfall. The sun rose outside the window opposite my bed, and I heard and saw owls and other birds. The people I met were all lovely,...

I just got back from a one night stay at the Ojai Retreat. This place is truly a magical experience, away from it all in nature. I only wish I would have stayed another night! I came here a year ago for a one day yoga retreat with the fabulous Mihaela but didn't stay the night. The retreat looked so... More

I've stayed at the Ojai Retreat several times, and I've stayed in both the cheapest and most expensive rooms (Cozy and Ojai Suite), as well as some rooms in between. It's always been a lovely experience. It really is a retreat, not a hotel, although the friendly staff ensures that your needs for comfort and cleanliness are well-met. The area... More

After doing extensive research, I decided to take my wife up here for a relaxing birthday weekend. It was absolutely perfect. We came with friends and although we got very different rooms on very different sides of the property, both were incredibly comfortable and boasted great views. I cannot say enough about the breakfast. It was absolutely delicious. Strongly recommend... More

I was looking for a quick getaway from LA to relax and take time for myself. The Ojai Retreat was just what I was looking for. It was so peaceful that it was hard to believe that there were people across the hall and downstairs from me. I spent time walking around the grounds and quietly reading in front of... More

Read the details carefully as this is not a typical TV place. Rooms are not spartan but also not five star but fine for the value and location. Quiet and focused on more contemplative activities. Breakfast was all organic with wide range of choices. Really relaxing and tasteful. Very quiet and restful .

Come here to unplug from the city and enjoy nature with the comforts of a hotel, without the crowd and need to drive or fly for hours. The Ojai Retreat is for those looking for a quiet environment to relax and reflect. I stayed here over New Year's in the Garden Room and loved it. Clean rooms with a kitchen... More
