For over 80 years, the Ojai Valley Inn & Spa has been considered one of the best secrets among travelers from California and around the world.

Clark Gable, Lana Turner, Judy Garland, and Paul Newman are just a few of the stellar guests who have frequented this historic Spanish-style resort in Southern California’s Ojai Valley.

Originally built in 1922 as a country club for Edward Drummond Libbey, a wealthy glass manufacturer from Ohio, the resort has 303 spacious rooms and suites with fireplaces, terraces, and spectacular views of the mountains.

In addition to the classic 1923 golf course, the 800-acre ranch has stables and horseback riding, a full-service tennis center, two heated swimming pools, and a spa that regularly makes top-10 lists. The Kuyam mud or healing clay treatment is the spa’s signature, but it also offers seasonal scrubs such as spring’s pixie tangerine body scrub or winter’s peppermint and nutmeg foot and leg scrub.
