Rancho Valencia reopening after $30 million upgrade

The 49-room Rancho Valencia Resort & Spa in Rancho Santa Fe officially reopens its doors Friday following a $30 million transformation.

"The resort's 49 all-suite guest rooms average 1,000 square feet and feature custom-made, rustic furnishings, high-beam roofs, walk-in closets, spacious bathrooms with deep soaking tubs, fireplaces, intricate design pieces and private patios boasting fireplaces and whirlpools,” said Simon Chen, Rancho Valencia general manager, in a statement.

Significant changes were made to the resort's clubhouse, including the new restaurant, Veladora, which features locally grown produce along with seafood and meats. This joins an upgraded Pony Room Bar.

In addition to resurfacing all 18 tennis courts, the Spa at Rancho Valencia and fitness center were expanded with a new lineup of classes, treatments and wellness programs. The fitness center features a new 1,000-square-foot yoga pavilion that will host a number of yoga sessions and retreats. The spa offers a new list of services incorporating Amala, a high-end skin care product line.

Other features include a 16-person board room, a 1,900-square-foot ballroom and 7,600-square-foot croquet lawn featuring panoramic views.

Overseeing the project are Rancho Valencia's new ownership team consisting of the Jacobs family of Qualcomm (Nasdaq: QCOM) fame; former Qualcomm executives; entrepreneur and co-founder of Fiji Water, Doug Carlson; and San Diego real estate developer and entrepreneur Jeffrey Essakow.

Rancho Valencia’s rates start at $650 per night.
