Serenity now! Let’s face it, life moves way too fast for most of us. It’s time to step away from the daily grind and hit the reset button to natural wellness. Enjoy a replenishing retreat into the country-fresh beauty of Ojai, California, located only 1.5 hours northwest of Los Angeles, and 20 minutes west of Ventura’s sun-drenched beaches.

Your Ultimate Ojai Nature Retreat includes a 2-3 night stay (depending upon your room selection) at the Ojai Retreat & Inn, a haven of natural beauty and tranquility nestled on a five-acre hilltop with stunning panoramic views of the Ojai Valley.

Reconnect with nature through three exclusive VIP private tours: Ojai Raptor Center; the Turtle Conservancy’s Behler Chelonian Center's turtle sanctuary; Bird-watching and nature-trail hiking with locally revered Ojai Naturalist, Bruce Vincent.

Enjoy a locally-harvested, earthy lunch or dinner at the nearby Farmer and The Cook organic market and bohemian cafe. Indulge in lunch or dinner at Papa Lennon’s Pizzeria, home of the Ojai Valley’s most yummy, zesty Italian cuisine. Both restaurants offer many vegan options, and are very popular hang-out spots among locals and visitors alike.

Play four rounds of golf with cart, Monday through Thursday, at the gorgeous AAA Five Diamond Ojai Valley Inn & Spa.  This premier Southern California resort’s, world-class golf course is among the best in North America, and has hosted several PGA tournaments.  Following your golf game, stop by Jimmy’s Pub overlooking the greens to enjoy al-fresco, casual fare and a toast to a good life!

Take a stroll around the Ojai Valley Inn’s 220 oak-studded grounds as you enjoy Ojai’s gorgeous “pink moment” at sunset. Return home feeling refreshed, inspired and reconnected with nature!
