Forbes Travel Guide’s 2019 World’s Best Rooms awards Bernardus Lodge & Spa a place on its verified list of 41 hotel properties. Located in California’s wine country, this Carmel Valley property joins the list that showcases hotels from 17 different countries. The lodge’s perfect score for guest rooms and bathroom standards was assessed using Forbes Travel Guide’s high standards for luxury, comfort and convenience.

Resting on 28 acres of vineyard, the lodge offers a range of lifestyle accommodations. From 525 to 2,100 square feet, including villas and suites, Bernardus provides an abode for every guest. Features such as vaulted ceilings, double-sided fireplaces, complimentary wine bar and private patios and terraces with views of the Santa Lucia Mountains prove its hospitable excellence.

Chef Cal Stamenov provides a fine dining experience at the lodge’s sleek restaurant. Apart from the California-Mediterranean fare, tennis, bocce and croquet courts, two pools, an adults-only Jacuzzi, the apiary program and a 5,300-square-foot spa grant guests with a luxurious Carmel Valley vacation.

The Bernardus Lodge & Spa was honored as one of the best rooms out of a selection of nearly 1,700 hotels. "This is an incredible honor, one that speaks to our philosophy and passion as well as recognizing our hardworking staff," says Sean Damery, vice president and general manager of Bernardus Lodge & Spa.

With summer weather year round, Carmel Valley Ranch is taking full advantage by cultivating a summer camp style environment that’s perfect for everything from corporate meetings to spectacular outdoor weddings.  

Nestled in the foothills of the Santa Lucia Mountains on California’s Central Coast, Carmel Valley Ranch occupies 500 acres. Amongst all of this, they offer nearly 10,000 square feet of indoor meeting space, as well as 30,000 square feet of outdoor space.  

 

Lovebirds looking to tie the knot can now experience the pompous features of celebrity Hollywood weddings at the Sportsmen’s Lodge in Studio City. 

The 7,000 square feet of event space will now include wedding add-ons. Options include exiting in a horse-drawn carriage (inspired by Prince Harry and Meghan Markle), a burger bar with the couple's initials toasted into the bun (Kaley Cuoco and Karl Cook), and a massive flower wall that will prove to be the “most Instagrammable” backdrop (Kim Kardashian and Kanye West). 

 

After two-years of refurbishing, General Mendoza, general manager of Sheraton Pasadena, revealed the completion of the hotel’s multimillion-dollar renovation. The property is excited to offer its reimagined accommodations, meeting space and public areas including its Restaurant Soleil.
