Bernardus Lodge & Spa in Carmel Valley is Old World tradition wrapped in West Coast style. Recently updated by ARYA Group, Inc. – LA-based architects-to-the-stars – and reopened in April 2015, Bernardus Lodge offers guests a relaxing sojourn in a region known for viticulture, chic luxury, and rustic charm. 

On the outside, Bernardus Lodge celebrates the Californian climate, landscape, and architectural heritage of Monterey. Twenty-eight acres of wine-country set the backdrop for Bernardus Lodge, which is bathed in sunshine three hundred days of the year. In this magical setting, vineyards, orchards, and gardens roll across green lawns and amongst stately pines and California Oak trees until they reach the picturesque Santa Lucia Mountains. Along a terraced hillside, Bernardus Lodge’s guest rooms, suites, and restaurants – soaked in the golden Californian tones of yellow, orange, and pink – are a revival of nineteenth-century Monterey architecture; a colonial house with local adobe walls and timber balconies and pergolas. 

On the inside, an appreciation of European sophistication has been refashioned for the rustic-chic atmosphere of the Carmel Valley. Warmth, texture, and a neutral palette prevail. French Oak graces the floors; seagrass adorns the walls; fireplaces are built of limestone; and herringbone-tiles accent the bathrooms. Throughout the hotel Thonet chairs, hand-knotted rugs, and reclaimed hand-hewn wood infuse understated and casual elegance. The 57 guest rooms and suites also feature baths big enough for two, oversized private garden patios, beds with plush silver headboards, and Frette Italian linens.

Bernardus Lodge is for both the epicurean and romantic pleasure-seeker. Chef Cal Stamenov showcases Carmel Valley’s food and wine produce at Lucia Restaurant in a dining room with alfresco terrace, indoor and outdoor fireplaces, and open views of the vineyard. A Spa, swimming pool, tennis court, croquet lawn, bocce court, and wine tasting room provide for relaxing and revitalizing activity. With the charm and service to match, Bernardus Lodge captures the warmth and tradition of European luxury in a chic and trendy Monterey ranch.
