My husband and I live in West Hollywood, California and typically go down to the Surf and Sand or The Montage in Laguna Beach or up to Bacara in Santa Barbara when we want to get away for a long weekend in a seaside resort in Southern California. Looking to avoid a long drive during rush hour on Friday afternoon,... More

You will feel pampered but not suffocated. Understated refinment, excellent staff, restaurants and accommodations. I slept like a baby every night. Left feeling refreshed and relaxed. This was a business trip but can't wait to return with my family.

This is an amazing property with extraordinary service, food & beverage. The spa is amazing and one of the best in all of Los Angeles. The views are worth a million dollars alone! An amazing oasis in the midst of a metropolis... The decor is a bit staid but everything else about Terranea is world class and definitely 5-stars plus... More

I showed up at this resort after a long, bad flight and all I wanted in the world was one beer from the mini bar. Well, turns out they don't have mini bars--so I had to call room service. I ordered a bucket of five beers because I felt weird ordering one--and the guy didn't arrive until 35 minutes later.... More

This was my first time at Terranea and I was very impressed. I am a travel professional and spend half my year in hotels around the world and Terranea stood out to me. My room was very large, nice sitting area and had two balconies facing the ocean. To hear the waves breaking while you are in the room was... More

It's hard to believe there are two million people just over the ridge line from Terranea but you will feel a world away from LA without having to go far from it. Top shelf service, dog friendly, superb accommodations, tremendous spa, great selection of restaurants and views of which you will never tire.

I took my Husband here for a birthday treat. We loved it from the minute we arrived. It is a beautiful property that feels like it is hours away from L.A. We were welcomed with complimentary champagne at check in. The room we were given had an ocean view, but there was a palm tree right in front of our... More
