Having grown up in Los Angeles, I’ve always had the privilege of being a short drive to the desert, mountains, and the sea. As a proud Taurus, I’m not shy about my appreciation of luxury—so you can imagine the excitement of discovering all my luxurious desires could be fulfilled two hours outside of LA at the Fairmont Grand Del Mar.
The trip kicked off in true Fairmont style with a helicopter ride out of Santa Monica. After a breezy 45 minutes, we landed on their elegant golf and hit the greens with one of their PGA-certified instructors. I don’t want to brag—but I slayed the driving range and suddenly contemplated a career in professional golf (kidding.)
After this, the tone was set, and what followed suit did not disappoint. From lavish five course meals near the pool, meditating in the rose garden, and a heavenly spa treatment, I found myself thinking, “Why haven’t I done this sooner?!” Every inch of the 400-acre property was majestic and awe-inspiring. The Tuscan style architecture and close proximity to the ocean were the perfect catalysts to unwind and let go of life’s worries. Between the scenery, immaculate accommodations, and the stellar food and beverage program, it’s no wonder the hotel holds the rank as the #1 luxury hotel in California on TripAdvisor.
