Where Memories are Made
Experience the perfect balance of California’s relaxed glamour and unspoiled natural beauty at the iconic Ojai Valley Inn.
Since its opening in 1923, the Ojai Valley Inn has beckoned families to the Ojai Valley, a rare coastal valley tucked within the Topatopa Mountains just 90 minutes north of Los Angeles. Set amid 220 oak and olive tree-studded acres, the AAA-Five-Diamond resort offers everything you need for an inspired escape—from world-class golf and cuisine to family-focused activities and adventures.
There’s something for every member of the family at Ojai Valley Inn. Kids ages 4–12 will love the half- or full-day program at Camp Oak, while parents can test their skills on the championship golf course, enjoy a tennis lesson, or relax at the 31,000-square-foot spa. Four separate pools provide plenty of space for fun in the sun, while bespoke activities such as guided hikes or biking tours, horseback riding, and even surfing offer endless options to explore the gorgeous Ojai Valley.
At Ojai Valley Inn, the luxurious accommodations combine the warmth and charm of contemporary Spanish hacienda design with plush features such as Frette bedding and linens, Nespresso machines, and artisanal bath and shower amenities. The generously sized Paseo villas and suites, nestled aside the Spa Village, are particularly well-suited to families thanks to a separate living space, spacious bathroom, and private outdoor lounge and dining area.
Eight separate dining experiences await at Ojai Valley Inn. Savor the exquisite valley-to-table culinary program at Olivella, the resort’s flagship restaurant. Enjoy diverse, locally sourced dishes at The Oak, featuring dramatic views of the golf course backed by mountain vistas. Or sample more casual fare at one of the cozy bars or poolside restaurants.
