Set under golden Californian sunshine and surrounded by stunning nature, the Golden Door offers a safe space for retreat and promises to recharge body, mind and spirit. The 4-, 5- or 7-night programs are completely personalized and aim to restore health and fitness levels, rejuvenate mind and spirit, and helps to regain inner balance and strength.
Your personalized fitness program includes classes and activities from light to challenging, plus up to 4 personal training sessions per week. Golden Door also offers a wide range of activities to nurture the mind and spirit, from meditation and mindfulness, to arts practices and archery. But perhaps the most healing aspect of your stay is the 600 acres of gardens and wild California spaces.
„Not two programs are ever the same: support your body, mind and spirit with a personalized program including fitness, spa and beauty treatments, daily in-room massage, a meal plan, as well as activities and experiences dedicated to mindfulness and spirituality.“
Golden Door takes its design inspiration from the ryokan, a traditional Japanese inn, with spaces specifically designed for serenity. All 40 Zen-luxe rooms are single occupancy, and open onto your own garden deck or patio, nestled amid Japanese gardens, Koi ponds, and a bamboo forest. There are never more than 40 guests at Golden Door, so you can be as social – or as private – as you want to be, and with staff ratios of 4:1, your every need is catered for.
The resort covers 600 acres, with 30 miles of private hiking trails, mountains to climb, and gardens to explore, as well as three pools, so you can commune with wild nature, work up a sweat, or simply relax, explore and enjoy the stunning Southern California weather. The food is as delicious as it is healthy and parts of the ingredients come from the resort’s own farm.
The company is also dedicated to preserving and enhancing the tranquility of its unique location, and to helping make an impact beyond its borders; 100% of its net profits go to philanthropic causes like helping to end child abuse and transforming young lives.
