On Top of the World

Say "I Do" above the fog...

Set high above Santa Cruz on a mountain bluff overlooking forested hills, Chaminade Resort & Spa is a sublime Spanish-style retreat blessed with a stunning view of Monterey Bay and the Santa Cruz Mountains.

Chaminade's contemporary flair adds to this historic estate, mingling the best of Old World elegance and modern luxury. The original Mission-style buildings, constructed in the 1930s, have been expanded into a gracious resort set in the midst of meticulously tended gardens and embraced by 300 acres of native oak, redwood and madrone.
