A grande dame among destination spas, this Provençal-style retreat 40 miles north of San Diego has just emerged from a head- to-toe renovation. Among the improvements are a full room redesign, a 17,000-square-foot state-of-the-art fitness center, and a new bathhouse complete with French antiques, and thalassotherapy and hydrotherapy rooms. A 4-to-1 staff-to-guest ratio guarantees that you’ll always be the center of someone’s attention, and all-inclusive stays ranging from three to seven nights ensure you’ll leave loose-limbed and stress-free (notwithstanding your considerably lighter wallet). Your faux Mediterranean villa (terra-cotta tile roof, stucco façade, window boxes bursting with flowers) has a private terrace and carefully placed windows that open onto rolling hills framed by jasmine and oleander.
