Experience Santa Cruz—Safely

Chaminade Resort & Spa is ready to welcome travelers far and wide back to the Santa Cruz Mountains. Here, you can breathe easy—and not just because of the salty sea air blowing in off Monterey Bay. You'll be at ease because we're doing everything we can to ensure your return to Santa Cruz is as safe as possible.

We've intensified our commitment to cleanliness and revised everything from check-in to check-out to ensure you can enjoy all the beloved Chaminade experiences safely.

Latest Update: January 25, 2021

Chaminade Resort & Spa remains open with a wide variety of outdoor recreation activities and to-go dining options to enjoy. Hike along miles of trails, take a swim in our heated outdoor pool, enjoy lawn games including Bocce, Cornhole and Frisbee Golf, play tennis, and savor dine-out service on our expansive terrace overlooking Santa Cruz and Monterey Bay.  We ask those who are visiting to wear a mask and maintain safe physical distance with other guests.
