The Terranea is one of the West Coast's best kept secrets. This ocean front eco-resort is built on the hills overlooking the vast blue Pacific at Palos Verdes. Built in a Tuscan style, most of the elegantly styled guestrooms and suites enjoy spectacular ocean views.
You'll be treated to courteous service, a great choice of activities and fabulous dining opportunities at this amazing five-star resort.
More About Terranea
The resort occupies 102 acres of land on a wonderful coastal location. As you look out to the ocean, depending on the time of year, you may spot dolphins frolicking in the waves, whales, seals and even sea otters. The bird and plant life is equally exciting and walking along the coastal path gives you a feeling of being totally at one with nature.
There are four heated swimming pools at Terranea – the Vista Pool, Spa Pool, adults-only Cielo Point and the Resort Pool which has a 140-foot waterslide. Children have a splash zone to have fun in and there’s also the Tide Pool Kids Club and Adventure Camp to keep them happy and occupied.
The Pointe Discover activity centre is the place to go to organise land and sea adventures such as ocean kayaking, paddle boarding, watersports and horseback riding. If tennis is your game, a complimentary shuttle can take you to the courts at Peninsula Racket Club and golfers can enjoy The Links at Terranea which offers a 9-hole, par-3 oceanfront golf course.
Of course, there’s always the Spa at Terranea if you simply want to relax and enjoy a spot of pampering. This 50,000 sq ft oasis has glorious views of the Pacific Ocean and offers a fantastic range of massages, body and beauty treatments.
