  • Terranea is a Mediterranean-style oceanfront resort with a long list of unexpected treats for a property situated in the heart of the greater Los Angeles area. It’s spread across 102 acres, so it takes time to digest all the natural and manmade elements that make this hotel such a special place. The stunning bluffside setting is a big part of the experience – almost all of the guest rooms and public spaces overlook water in one way or another. For families, ideal room options include bungalows with kitchens and private living space. The lively family pool includes a water slide, sandbox, and water play area. In addition, there is an exceptional camp-style kids’ club offering an array of theme-based activities during both day and evening hours for kids who want structured fun and parents who want downtime. Extensive onsite amenities include a wonderful spa, adult pool, fitness center, 9-hole golf course, and a variety of dining venues – all make it easy to relax for days at a time.
