Even though we aren’t able to travel right now that doesn’t mean you can’t take a vacation. I will tell you not all staycations are created equally. There are times you need to escape your home to just get away and then you can visit a resort like the Westlake Village Inn and be transported instantly to Europe without having to drive very far if you are in Southern California.
Westlake Village Inn is a gorgeous property located in Westlake, California. Don’t let the name fool you, this is more than a hotel. It’s a winery, a golf course, a spa and fine dining. Walking around the property you’ll feel like you are in the South of France or in the country side of Italy. It has European charm and sophistication.
I have had the chance to stay her a couple of times and I will be going back again and again. The hotel is safe and very clean during Covid. They have some newly remodeled spa rooms that are so beautiful that you will want to move in and never leave. The rooms are inviting and feel relaxing when you step in. They have suites that have a living and dining room in them. The standard spa rooms are spacious and have nice patios. All the rooms have fireplaces in them. Imagine how cozy that would be in Fall and Winter.
Westlake Village Inn has beautiful gardens that you can walk around. The gardens are all throughout the property and really make you feel like you are not just 30 minutes from LA. This is the type of getaway everyone needs to reset themselves. Being around all this greenery and beautiful landscape is so calming to your mind. I would take a walk everyday and it would just relax me.
The Spa Relais at Westlake Village Inn has been reopened. It open, Wednesday to Sunday, 10 AM – 6 PM. They have made modifications so that it follows the covid safety rules. All the treatment rooms are private and very safe & clean. Spa Relais is stunning they have chandeliers from Murano, Italy. When you book a service you also get access to the spa pool. At the pool they have full service meaning they now serve food and drinks. If you just want a spa day this is where to go. There are also some really amazing spa packages now.
There is also a full working winery at Westlake Village Inn. You can go there to wine taste and sit in the vineyard. Or grab a bottle at Stonehaus and enjoy the music and have lunch in one of the cozy corners. Stonehaus also has a great happy hour. I also enjoyed breakfast and lunch at Stonehaus. They have great sandwiches and salads. For breakfast I loved the Chef’s mess and the peanut butter banana toast. If I lived closer I would come to Stonehaus to work because there is so much outdoor seating that it’s really a nice place to just work, eat and get inspired with the beauty that surrounds you. There are also fire pits at some of the tables.
For dinner I tried Mediterrano which is a fine dining restaurant on the property. Right now they are opened Wednesday to Sunday. They offer a very California fresh menu which I love. Everything I tried was amazing. From the parmesan broccoli to the grilled fish. The patio seating is beautiful in the evening you overlook the lake that is on the property. I will have to come back for a Sunday brunch.
Westlake Village Inn is 17 acres big. You can borrow their bikes and ride around the property or even take them out on the trails in the surrounding area. They also have two fitness centers. There are two pools the main hotel pool is only for hotel guests. I would say it is in the top 5 pools in for luxury hotels in LA.
The main hotel pool also offers a full bar menu and food service. The food at the pool was amazing. I had the wedge salad and Pina Colada. It was the best way to just relax at the pool all day. The service at the pool is outstanding as well. I love how friendly the staff is. Also, all guests were spread apart and respecting everyone’s space.
The hotel is also very dog friendly. So if you have a furry family member they can also enjoy the resort. The hotel also has meeting rooms and still have weddings there. I saw a wedding happening while I was there. It was small because of covid rules but very beautiful.
I have stayed at many hotels during covid and non of them have had room service. This is one amenity that I really miss. Westlake Village Inn now offers it. I love they way they serve it too. It’s really safe, someone delivers it to your room in a bag. All the food is wrapped in containers. I felt very comfortable with it and safe.
If you spend a night, a week or just an entire day at Westlake Village Inn it will just soothe you. It has been my favorite stay all summer and I look forward to my next visit. You’ll love this oasis and you’ll be so glad you went. You deserve the vacation!
