Near Los Angeles, in a dramatic seaside location, is a beautiful new resort, Terranea, with its stunning views and top notch amenities. Standard rooms are spacious and well appointed with a soft color palette and very comfy beds.

Meeting space is tasteful and efficient. Food service was inventive and fresh.

Paths, pools, golf, kids program, spa, whale watching and perfect climate combine to make this 102-acre property a refuge near one of the major US cities.

I found myself at Terranea for a business meeting, but left wistfully departing that I could just stay one more day to enjoy her many charms…..
