A couple weeks ago in the midst of planning and getting ready for the Latina Lifestyle Bloggers Conference I received an invitation that was truly godsent. Chaminade Resort & Spa invited me to take part in a tour of their newly renovated spa and spend the night relaxing at their resort. I didn’t think twice before saying yes.
Chaminade Resort & Spa is a certified GREEN, eco-friendly and AAA Four Diamond resort that sits at the top of the Santa Cruz mountains on California’s central coast. I’m from Los Angeles and I live right in the middle of the city around subway stations, traffic, and main streets so the scenic road leading up to the resort was a welcomed change. It smelled like FRESH AIR!
Once I got up to the top I realized the resort itself consists of 11 buildings, a spa, pools, tennis courts, a fitness center, and 3 hiking trails. Not to mention breathtaking views of Monterey Bay and the Santa Cruz Mountains.
After the long trip there I wanted to be comfortable as I took a tour of the spa and previewed their newly added spa treatments.

Check out some of my instagram pictures of the resort:
I was treated to a complimentary Warm Bamboo Massage (which was heaven after an 8 1/2 hour trip), Blissful Mini Facial and a Cucumber Mint Sore Hands & Feet Treatment with Emminence organic skincare products handmade in Hungary.
The Spa at Chaminade has a steam room, a sauna, a mediation area and an outside patio with a Koi pond, a heated outdoor pool and an area to lounge and sunbathe.
The spa also has it’s own lunch menu so you can lunch outside and enjoy the view.
I received a complimentary bottle of wine as welcome gift which I saved for the end of the night. It was a perfect way to end the day.
I had dinner at one of Chaminades two on site restaurants, Lynwood’s Bar & Grill. They have inside dining as well as an outside dining area with fire pits overlooking the mountains.
The morning before I headed back to LA I enjoyed this beautiful view while I had breakfast at the Sunset Restaurant.
A stay at Chaminade was exactly what I needed to unwind and disconnect enough to relax and clear my mind. Chaminade is surrounded by beauty and you can’t help but feel at peace while you visit. If you’d like to visit you can book a stay here: Book a Stay at Chaminade Resort & Spa
