Scale of 90-100

This distinctive resort in the peaceful Carmel Valley is set amid 28 acres of oak-covered hills with a backdrop of the Santa Lucia Mountains. Several adobe-style buildings house 73 rooms, suites and villas featuring sitting areas, limestone fireplaces, lavish baths, beamed ceilings, wrought-iron mirrors and French doors that open to private patios or balconies. A rustic main building contains an inviting lounge offering live music Friday through Tuesday, a cozy library and Lucia Restaurant, which serves “California country cuisine.” Other amenities include an outdoor lap pool, tennis courts, a gym, a spa, an adults-only hilltop infinity Jacuzzi and an estate winery with three vineyards.
