Travel + Leisure’s top California resorts include three Bay Area gems
Just about every calendar year Vacation + Leisure’s World’s Ideal Awards study asks viewers to weigh in on their preferred motels, cruises, resorts and much more. The effects contain a “100 most effective hotels in the entire world” listing that incorporates each and every continent — save for Antarctica, a location not particularly acknowledged for its 4-star resorts — as very well as a California-centric listing of the prime 15 resorts.
The latter are clustered all-around some of the Golden State’s most well-liked locations — the Pacific coastline, wine nation and that desert oasis, Palm Springs. Santa Barbara’s San Ysidro Ranch, a 550-acre expanse of bungalows, olive groves and gardens favored by a who’s who of famous people and politicos, tops the list. Mendocino’s Craftsman-design and style Brewery Gulch Inn arrives in at No. 7, and Menlo Park’s Rosewood Sand Hill usually takes honors in the No. 12 location. And Sonoma and Napa built the list with MacArthur Area and Auberge du Soleil, respectively.
