Surrounded by cool breezes over the coastal valley, Ojai is a gentle region. Summers that are warm and dry and winters that are relatively mild and cool mean that temperatures are never extreme. This keeps the area attractive to travelers year-round.
Ojai is beautiful and remote but if you crave a cityscape, the City of Angels is just 82 miles away. Quench your appetite for high-end shopping on Rodeo Drive or settle into a low-lit, romantic table for two in Hollywood.
These luxurious herbs grow happily in the valley and you'll find these fresh delights incorporated both into the variety of entrees available at the on-site restaurants and in the body treatments served up for your pleasure at the resort's spa.
Thanks to its Mediterranean climate, the valley is a mecca for fruits and vegetables. Many locals sell their goods at roadside fruit stands and some even operate on an honor system; leave money in the locked box and take your items to go.
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 it's a good idea to carry light jacket with you during your vacation.
