If there is anything in the world that would make me want to turn forty sooner than already scheduled it would be the spa at the Rancho Bernardo Inn, just so I can have an excuse to buy it out and host a party for all my girlfriends. The Rancho Bernardo Inn is a cushy, comforting oasis out in the middle San Diego’s inland region, located on a lush golf course. It oozes the saucy flavor of a Spanish Hacienda and makes you feel like you’ve landed in a place far, far away from reality.

Recently The Spa at Rancho Bernardo Inn hosted a handful of mom bloggers to their newly renovated spa, treating us to a much needed day of relaxation (MAJOR mommy blogger perk!), complete with a 90 minute massage, lunch by the pool, and a generous swag bag including body butter, green tea body scrub and these adorable flip flops.

(These flips are so cute I am willing to show you my nappy toes that haven’t seen the inside of a salon in weeks and my birthmark/freckle-laden cankles in order to brag about them).

The spa itself is lovely. The Spanish-influenced architecture, green gardens, flowing fountains make you feel like you are transported to a different time and place. And their new “Made Fresh Daily” signature massages are a unique take on the standard massages offered by many spas. They take fresh ingredients, many of which are grown right there in their hotel garden, and combine them to make invigorating scrubs and massage oils to make a unique and homegrown experience. The latest Made Fresh Daily treatment is called “Sangria Sensation” which combines a Cranberry-Orange Scrub, Apple Wine Mud Mask, and Vanilla-Orange Massage. Along with your treatment you can enjoy a glass of white sangria and then go home with a recipe card to make your own Sangria Sensation scrub on your own.

I want to thank the women and men of the Spa at Rancho Bernardo Inn for treating us to such a delightful and yummy day. If you are thinking about treating the special someone in your life with a spa day for a Holiday gift, I highly recommend the Spa at RBI. He or she won’t be disappointed.

Disclaimer: Though our afternoon at the spa was complimentary, the opinions in this post are my own and completely truthful. If I had not been happy with my spa treatment or any part of the afternoon I would have stated as much. Both the resort and the spa are divine.
