The beauty of the grounds will greet you only to be topped by the comfort amenities of the room! The beauty products in the room are the same used in the spa. The linens and robes were luxurious! The service also matched with every attention to detail. If you want to feel spoiled, you will!

Dear Jennifer S, Thank you for choosing Bernardus Lodge & Spa and for writing such a kind review. Your headline, “luxury and serenity” is exactly what we strive to provide to each of our guests every day. I also noticed that according to TripAdvisor, you've only written one review - and it is about us. This is another wonderful compliment....

Up the valley, quiet and alluring amongst the vineyard is Bernardus Lodge. We enjoyed the upgrade thru Amex Platinum program which gave us a great suite with its own private spa in the patio area. Dinner was superb, the Wagyu beef was excellent and paired nicely wine wine suggestion. My wife had the filet mignon and was very impressed.

Scenic and quiet location, beautifully landscaped with drought resistant native plants. Far enough inland to avoid the coastal fog, yet an easy drive to the beach. Tastefully appointed rooms with french doors leading to a private patio, perfect for morning coffee. A huge soaking tub complete with bath bomb, salts and loofah. The staff were friendly and accommodating.

We recently spent two nights at the newly re opened Bernardus Lodge, formerly owned by the founder of Bernardus Winery but now owned by a private equity firm.
