The rooms, service and restaurant receive high praise
A daily resort fee applies
Unlike many of its Monterey Peninsula competitors, the Bernardus Lodge is situated away from the beach in the rugged hills and vineyards of Carmel Valley, California. With Nespresso coffee makers and a complimentary wine bar stocked with Bernardus wines, the guest rooms at this property aspire to a homey atmosphere that encourages you to indulge. Guests also appreciate the large tubs and the private balconies or terraces overlooking the property's gardens and the nearby mountains. The boutique resort's romantic side can be found at its restaurant and in the spa, which offers couples treatments. And despite the availability of wireless internet, guests find this the perfect place to disconnect from the outside world. Lastly, guests should not neglect exploring the Bernardus Winery, which offers daily tastings. Though this hotel charges a daily resort fee, it includes free parking and a 24-hour concierge service, among other amenities.

Critic Reviews



The spacious guest rooms at this luxury spa resort have vaulted ceilings, featherbeds, fireplaces, patios, and bathtubs for two. Before you even check in, the valet hands you a glass of Sauvignon Blanc.



Tucked among vineyards in the scenic Carmel Valley, Bernardus Lodge & Spa has long been considered one of the finest winemaking estates in California and now, after a multimillion-dollar facelift, the lodge is brimming with earthy-chic charm. The updated aesthetic comes through in details like Italian linens, marble-clad soaking tubs for two and limestone fireplaces in each of the guest rooms.
