Nestled in nature with no distractions, this California Retreat Center spans 200 acres in the Santa Monica Mountains, and provides the perfect setting to calm the mind. Here, you return to nature and focus on your mental and physical health goals during a week long program.
Located on a historic working ranch three miles above the Pacific Ocean, the sprawling grounds are designed to be rustic, yet refined and feature an open-air kitchen and great room, certified organic garden, pool and jacuzzi, Buddha Barn yoga and meditation room, gym and massage “village.”
Following the invigorating daily fitness schedule, retreat to one of 18 private cottages, each beautifully decorated with reclaimed wood floors, limestone bathrooms, and linen-covered queen and king-sized beds. Your place of “refuge” during your stay offers no televisions, no cell and limited wi-fi service available to further aid in a mental detoxification.
