Terranea Resort has been one of L.A.’s favorite staycation destinations for several years running and there are plenty of reasons why – location being at the top of the list. Perched on the cliffs of the Palos Verdes peninsula, Terranea is one of the top luxury resorts to adorn the Pacific Coast. The 102-acre estate is home to more than 580 guestrooms and suites, including casitas, villas and the Bungalows at Terranea, which are accommodations that feature spa- and wellness-focused amenities.

Also on property are many other luxurious amenities such as the resort’s eight dining experiences, a full-service spa, a fitness center, a golf course, three swimming pools, a kids’ club, ecological enrichment programs and more.

Terranea is the ideal retreat for every occasion, whether you are vising for a romantic getaway or looking for some bonding time as a family.

With the Kids

For families, Terranea offers plenty of room to spread out. The casitas are the perfect accommodation for families. They are situated on the east end of the property and feature private entrances in a residential setting – just like a home away from home. Amenities include a kitchen, a living room, laundry facilities, a flat-screen television, an indoor/outdoor fireplace, wireless Internet access and an oversized private balcony or patio. Casitas can be booked as one-, two- or three-bedroom suites to accommodate large, multigenerational groups.

Need to keep the family entertained? There is a multitude of on- and off-property activities for every member of the clan. Active kids and adults can head out on horseback for a guided trail ride, a bike ride or an oceanside hike. There is stand-up paddleboarding, ocean kayaking tours, tide pooling, surfing and snorkeling as well.

There are even half-day fishing trips. When you’re ready to relax but the kids are still wound up, head to one of the resort’s three swimming pools. If (or should I say when) the kids get sick of their parents, there are fun camps for them to enroll in for a day of adventure that includes everything from Peter Pan-style treasure hunts to a super hero showdown.

Without the Kids

Looking for a romantic getaway sans children? Book the Bungalows at Terranea. Perched on the ocean’s edge, these accommodations are geared toward romance, relaxation and rejuvenation. Just steps from the spa pool and the Spa Café, these oceanfront vacation rentals are just what the doctor ordered.

Enjoy complimentary all-day dining at the Spa Café, a VIP spa treatment, complimentary use of the spa pool and amenities, including steam room, dry sauna, whirlpools, indoor/outdoor relaxation lounges, fire pits and more. In addition, guests have access to a 24-hour concierge who can handle all requests, from making dining reservations to booking activities. Guests also receive 10 percent off spa treatments, salon services and spa cabana rentals.

Bungalow suites have either one or two bedrooms and include a kitchen, a washer and dryer, an indoor/outdoor fireplace, wireless Internet access and more.

The award-winning spa offers a wide variety of treatments and packages perfect for those looking to bliss out for the weekend. The Spa Rejuvenation Package, for example, includes overnight accommodation, two 60-minute spa treatments and breakfast for two in the Catalina Kitchen.

For those seeking a healthy escape, the Wellness Retreat at the Bungalows has three-, five- and seven-day options with personalized fitness evaluations and training as well as everything from therapeutic spa treatments to soothing daily spa rituals, energizing seaside cycles, restorative yoga sessions and invigorating coastal hikes.
