Redesigned With You In Mind

ballroom with floor to ceiling windows

Transformation Complete

We are so excited to share that our main villa, where you will find the fireplace lobby/front desk, both restaurants, and approximately 12,000 s.f. of meeting space, has received a multi-million-dollar transformation. Keeping the integrity of our historical, iconic Spanish Revival architecture, we paired a neutral and earthy color pallet with bold tile and textures, creating a casual-luxe aesthetic that is both comfortable and classic with attention to pattern and detail.  

Now more than ever, our offering of newly transformed indoor meeting space coupled with expansive, unconventional outdoor meeting space ensures a healthy and safe event space for you and your attendees. As with our design, we pair the same bold attention to the details of your event. 

Your attendees will enjoy staying in 1 of our 11 two-story villas, no elevators needed.  Each villa features 12-16 guest rooms or suites, first floor rooms enjoy a patio or balcony, many with forest views.  

Whether you choose from our creative and effective teambuilding experiences, or let individuals explore our 3+ mile redwood hiking trails, enjoy bocce and other lawn games, our 300 acre mountain top retreat overlooking the Monterey Bay is sure to provide the perfect backdrop for your next meeting.
