Terranea Resort

Terranea Resort: Our Southbay Getaway

We recently spent a few magical days at the Terranea Resort overlooking the Pacific Ocean in Palos Verdes. The breathtaking property offers plenty of activities for the whole family to enjoy—we had so much fun, we didn’t want to leave!

It was our first trip since quarantine so we were a bit apprehensive at first. But those fears quickly subsided once we arrived and saw all the covid safe procedures in place at the resort.

Plenty of activities to choose from at the 102 acre property. Everything from golfing to kayaking, standup paddleboarding to archery. We tried our hand at archery and I am happy to report Katniss Everdeen would be proud of me. I actually beat Drew (although technically he says he won…but for the purposes of this blog, I did).

The resort offers nine different dining options from casual to fine dining. Our favorite was at Mar’sel. It’s the resort’s fancy restaurant that serves up an inventive twist on California cuisine. With a seasonally rotating fine dining menu that features locally sourced ingredients (citrus and herbs from the resort’s grounds, hand-ground chocolate, farm-fresh eggs), as well as playful takes on culinary favorites. We savored caviar, a beet salad, and one of the best filets we’ve ever tasted.

We also hung by our cabana and enjoyed the adult pool.  There are a total of four pools to choose from on the property…one even has a slide for the kids!

The resort also features a beautiful spa.  And although I didn’t visit it this trip, I’ve enjoyed both facials and massages in the past.

Even though it’s just 30 minutes from Los Angeles International Airport it feels like you’re in another world when you visit Terranea, and we can’t wait to go back again and create more memories.
