Carmel’s Bernardus Lodge & Spa Awarded Forbes 12-Stars


Marking its second consecutive year, California's Bernardus Lodge & Spa has been awarded a coveted 12 stars from Forbes Travel Guide. Raising the bar on luxury lodging, the 73-room resort set against the backdrop of 28 acres of sweet lavender and vines, received top industry honors with a four-star rating for the Lodge, The Spa at Bernardus and Lucia Restaurant & Bar, the property's signature dining venue under the helm of Chef Cal Stamenov.

Bernardus Lodge & Spa shares this elite award with only six California and 14 U.S. hotel properties.

It's currently offering two specials: The Body + Soul -- Treat yourself to a one-night getaway in a luxurious guest room and enjoy your choice of two pampering 50-minute spa treatments and a dinner for two at Lucia Restaurant. And, indulge yourself with the Bed and Breakfast special. Enjoy a luxurious guest room for two, as well as a full American breakfast for two in either Lucia or in the privacy of your own room.

Opened in 1999 in bucolic Carmel Valley, Bernardus Lodge & Spa epitomizes wine country luxury with its top drawer service protocols and hospitality standards.  The property's ongoing evolution included a multi-million dollar transformation in 2015 and the debut of its new Villas & Suites a year later, including spacious 1050 sq., ft., and 2100 sq. ft., lifestyle accommodations ideally suited for reconnecting with extended family.  Today's challenging guest ethos is met with heightened sensitivity and an all-encompassing experience designed to outpace expectations.  As industry standards shift, Bernardus Lodge & Spa continues to reset the bar.

In addition to the lodge, Forbes four stars were awarded to the Spa at Bernardus, a spacious 5,300 sq. ft., facility offering cutting-edge treatments in an elegant poolside setting, and Lucia Restaurant & Bar with chef Cal Stamenov driving the stoves.  

415 West Carmel Valley Road in Carmel Valley. 831.658.3400.
