Pebble Beach, California
Casa Palmero at Pebble Beach
A Golfer’s Seaside Mecca
What it is
A 24-room Mediterranean-inspired estate neighboring golf royalty: the first and second fairways of Pebble Beach Golf Links.
What it isn't
Golf-overload. Sure, you’ll hit the course, but other equally entrancing extracurriculars await, including a five star spa and a 25-meter oceanside pool.
What we think
The golfers who’ve pilgrimaged to Pebble Beach since 1919 have rarely come alone—Monterrey is the kind of place you can’t say no to. Partners, children, and friends tag along for the lifestyle, which is perfectly epitomized at the luxe-to-the-hilt Casa Palmero. Each guest room feels like your own estate-away-from-home, with a minimum size of 585-square-feet, decor that takes its cues straight from Italy (exposed beam ceilings; fireplaces; window nooks meant for reading Under the Tuscan Sun), and, in the Palmero Suite, a private outdoor whirlpool decked by leafy greenery. That the hotel is constantly rated among the best in Northern California is no surprise, not with personal coordinators at-the-ready to attend to your every whim, be it restaurant rezzies or tee times.
You're here because
You love golf more than Jack Nicklaus, arguably, so this is your version of heaven. The only way to get closer to your favorite golf course would be to actually sleep on the fairway, which is frowned upon.
After a morning on the course, your bod could use a tune-up—so you’re ready to play again tomorrow. Thankfully, The Spa at Pebble Beach has thought of everything: namely, acupuncture to nix back pain and a totally restorative sports pedicure (brewski included).
