A New Experience Coming Spring 2022
Starting November 1, we'll start work on our pool area and activity lawn, adding a second pool, poolside restaurant and bar, additional cabanas, firepits, and more. As part of this process, we will close our current pool and activity lawn from November 1 - March 2022.
While these are exciting enhancements to the resort, we understand this is an inconvenience to guests staying this winter. During this time we will continue to offer a wide variety of resort activities, amenities, and services.
Santa Cruz is right on the edge of the great outdoors. From rolling hills and zip lines to thick forests and state park, Santa Cruz is a nature lover's paradise. Embark on your next adventure in Chaminade's 300 forested acres.
