In a place known to be among the most beautiful in the world, The Ritz-Carlton, Half Moon Bay brings you the best of Northern California coast. Less than 25 miles southwest of San Francisco, this luxury retreat is home to spectacular accommodations, a pair of championship golf courses, miles of walking trails, and a world class spa. Thoroughly romantic and indisputably gorgeous at every turn, The Ritz-Carlton, Half Moon Bay provides the ultimate backdrop for your NorCal getaway. The hotel's main building features a selection of guest rooms and suites, and additionally, there are guest house accommodations in a series of three adjacent smaller buildings. All accommodations offer feather beds with Egyptian cotton linens, marble bathrooms with separate shower and tub, wireless Internet access and full-size desks, and oversize windows looking out over splendid views. Depending on your location, enjoy vistas of the courtyard and golf course greens, or the rugged and dramatic coastline and oceanfront. You can even opt for a space that boasts its own private fire pit and adirondack chairs on a scenic patio.
There is no shortage of things to do at The Ritz-Carlton, Half Moon Bay, from the glass-enclosed indoor heated pool, to outdoor tennis facilities and half-court basketball. The fully equipped fitness center is available for workout buffs, and you can also take advantage of the resort's oceanside jogging and bike path. The Ritz-Carlton, Half Moon Bay Spa provides pampering treatments and services to up the ante on indulgence, like The Ritz-Carlton Signature Custom Massage, Ocean Mist Stone Ritual, Half Moon Bay Pumpkin Facial, and array of salon services.
