Famous for its sunsets and laid-back ambiance, Ojai Valley is home to one of Inspirato’s most impressive estates. With over 10,000 square feet of living space, a private pool, and expansive outdoor living areas, Casa Elar strikes the perfect balance of seclusion and access to award-winning resort amenities.
Within the Ojai Valley Inn & Spa, you’ll find a championship golf course, an expansive spa, several on-site restaurants, kids’ programming, and more.
Ojai Valley has long served as a spiritual retreat with an emphasis on natural beauty and health. Conveniently located just 15 miles inland from the breakers of the Pacific Ocean, you’ll find artists, organic farms, lavender fields, wellness spas, and plenty of spiritual pursuits. Serving as a backdrop for various Hollywood films for decades, Ojai was the setting for a mythical Shangri-la in the 1937 movie “Lost Horizon” and is still referred to as such.
Ready to take your game to the next level? Ask your Destination Concierge to book a private lesson with one of Ojai Valley Inn & Spa's certified PGA professionals at the on-site, 18-hole course.
The on-site apothecary welcomes you to take a class in watercolor, silk scarf painting, basic drawing or Orizomegami. Beauty buffs will treasure the opportunity to custom blend their own perfume.
Ojai Valley Inn & Spa is an ideal retreat for families thanks to Camp Oak, a series of programming for kiddos ages 4 to 12. The younger set will enjoy outdoor activities, arts and crafts, swimming and nature exploration.
Ventura Pier and Promenade is an oceanfront pathway that runs along a quiet piece of shoreline perfect for a long walk with the family. Benches along the way allow you to rest and admire the sunset and views of the city.
With seven on-site dining options as well as room service, there will be no shortage of culinary adventures during your stay in Ojai. Poolside cocktails, tapas and alfresco dining under a vine-covered pergola will not disappoint.
Hiking is pretty much a religion in this region of California. North of Ojai, Rose Valley Falls Trail is an easy hike (less than a mile total, out-and-back) with views of a waterfall and friendly to all fitness levels.
Ojai enjoys pleasant temperatures year-round with minimal rainfall. Located about 20 miles inland from the ocean and separated from the water by idyllic mountains, the valley is generally warmer than other Southern California destinations that are right on the beach. However, temperatures can vary greatly from day to night, so come prepared.
