    Sitting on 250 acres in quaint St. Helena, California, Meadowood Napa Valley resort automatically wins guests over with its serene landscape and isolation. The guest room decor embodies a rustic elegance, with cottage-like beamed ceilings, private terraces and, in most rooms, fireplaces.

Meanwhile, those who splurged on a treatment at the on-site spa certainly didn't regret it, nor did they have second thoughts about repeat meals at The Restaurant.

    A pristine retreat along the Pacific Ocean less than an hour south of Monterey in Big Sur, the Post Ranch Inn is renowned for its rustic atmosphere and indulgent comfort. Guests delight in the views from their guest rooms, gazing at either rising mountains or the expansive seas. The hotel's 39 rooms were designed for utter relaxation – you won't find TVs here, but rather wood-burning fireplaces, private hot tubs and binoculars to help you see more clearly from your personal deck. Should you need your fix of TV, you can head to the library, although the inn's activities should be enough to keep you busy. When visitors are not taking advantage of the on-site amenities – the pools (some of the world's most beautiful), spa, yoga classes and star-gazing excursions, to name a few – they are appreciating the great outdoors on local hikes or watching the sun set over nearby Pfeiffer Beach. No matter how you choose to spend your stay, previous visitors insist that a meal at Sierra Mar must work its way into your schedule.

    With the Santa Rosa Mountains as its backdrop, the La Quinta Resort & Club has been a desert getaway for the Hollywood elite since its opening in the 1920s. Stars such as Greta Garbo and Clark Gable used to seek refuge within the resort's whitewashed casitas, located around 127 miles from Los Angeles. Guest rooms maintain a relaxed yet luxurious ambiance with soothing design accents, leather furniture and fireplaces (in most rooms). The resorts' amenities will also provide visitors with all they need for a relaxing or exciting getaway. Summer temperatures in the Coachella Valley can enter the triple digits, but La Quinta boasts 41 outdoor swimming pools to keep guests cool and comfortable. If it's not too hot, take advantage of this Waldorf Astoria-affiliated resort's five golf courses or the on-site tennis center, complete with 23 courts and private instruction. Recent travelers lauded La Quinta's seven in-house restaurants, especially the Mexican fare of Adobe Grill. However, get ready for a lot of walking: La Quinta's grounds are manicured and lovely, but it's a trek to span the property. Members of the Hilton Honors program can earn or redeem points by choosing to stay here, but make sure you're aware of the daily resort fee that applies to all guests.
