Certificate of Excellence
Our pristine 87-acre canyon oasis makes The Ranch at Laguna Beach one of Southern California's top resorts and spas. This romantic getaway, nestled just a short walk from one of Southern California's finest beaches, brings the best of coast and canyon together in one uniquely Laguna experience. Harvest Restaurant specializes in American and California style cuisine, serving breakfast, lunch and dinner. Enjoy food and drinks from the comfort of your room with in-room dining, or poolside soaking up the sun at the Pond Pool Bar. Spanning over 3,000 square feet of indoor and outdoor space, including four treatment rooms and a 24 hour fitness center, Sycamore Spa captures the bohemian vibe of Laguna's laid-back beach lifestyle. Our 9-hole Laguna golf course and country club in Southern California is situated in what's arguably the most serene and natural setting in Orange County. The course is carved into the naturally dramatic and lush walls of Aliso and Wood Canyons.

My Fiancée and I have stayed at the Ranch multiple times, this is our favorite resort in California. We've been to all the big resorts that are two or three times as expensive, and the ranch wins every time. I highly recommend you stay here!More

It doesn't get more beautiful than The Ranch. Gorgeous views and it is peaceful at all hours of the day. Service wasn't 100% but everyone was friendly and it didn't get in the way of us having a wonderful time. We hope to visit again!More
