A full-service hotel and conference center, Chaminade Resort & Spa is set on 300 acres of eucalyptus and redwood-dense hills overlooking Santa Cruz. It's also one of the highest-rated hotels in this Northern California coastal town. Spanish-mission inspired architecture, contemporary furnishings and open-air patios make this an ideal place to unwind. Five miles removed from the activity of Santa Cruz, Chaminade is an easy drive within minutes to Pacific Ocean beaches, golf courses and local wineries.

Dining

Views of Monterey Bay are unbeatable from the fireside patios at Chaminade Resort & Spa. From the highly-regarded breakfast buffet to sunset cocktails at Linwood's Bar & Grill, two on-site restaurants here offer a selection from morning through after-hours. Fine cuisine draws ever-changing inspiration from local farms on the surrounding California coast. Room service is available for breakfast, lunch and dinner. 

Rooms

Several buildings that stretch through the wooded hillside house Chaminade Resort and Spa's 156 rooms. A $15 million renovation in 2009 brought upgrades to the interiors with luxurious feather beds, down-filled duvets and contemporary decor that still retains the Spanish flair that is part of the resort's history. Private patios are sheltered by forest. Some modernized suites have flat-screen TVs and high-speed Internet access (fees apply). Granite bathrooms feature Lather products and microfiber robes. 

Property features

Chaminade Resort & Spa emphasizes the outdoors. Four tennis courts with a pro on hand, three miles of private on-site hiking trails, a ropes course, sand volleyball, badminton and croquet are all available. The 50-foot outdoor heated pool is open until 11 p.m. The full-scale fitness center offers aerobics, yoga and pilates in addition to standard workout equipment. Ladies' and mens' locker rooms, sauna and whirlpool are available. For all-natural treatments and rejuvenation, head to the full-service Spa at Chaminade.

A lovely getaway!!!

I LOVE the Chaminade!!! Its such a lovely getaway tucked away in nature with trees and trails and beautiful views of the Santa Cruz mountains. The spa is very peaceful and relaxing; the hot tub outdoors at the spa is a real treat with amazing sunset views. There is even a stone bench next to the waterfall pond that is perfect for meditation and taking in all that nature has to offer :-) For me, the restaurant needs more vegetarian options and some work on the food. The wine was tasty though! My room was too close to the tennis courts so took away from my level of comfort with the noise. A room farther away would have been perfect so next time for sure. Overall, the Chaminade is truly lovely with nice and friendly folks on staff. I highly recommend this place for a lovely Santa Cruz getaway!

Lovely Location

The hotel is located amidst a lovely wooded area and includes several great hiking trails on the grounds. The spa, workout room, and tennis courts are also well maintained, convenient, and top notch. Ask for a room that has a view - the other option being a view of the parking lot.
