Pelican Hill Resort

Tuscany Meets the Pacific

Covid-19 - What you should know

Skylark’s advisor team is here to support you. Travel is tricky right now and planning isn’t always straightforward, but our team of advisors is here to assist in every way we can.

What it is

A new 504-acre estate that took its cues from the best of Italy.

What it isn't

Teensy. Example: there are six restaurants on-site (all of them indoor/outdoor).

What we think

When 16th-century Italian architect Andrew Palladio inspires a new mega-resort, you know you’re in for a decadent treat. Every moment of a guest’s experience here is akin to what they’d find in under the Tuscan sun, except you’re a quick hopscotch from Los Angeles (and there’s a 36-hole, Tom Fazio-designed golf course on-site that’s not exactly an Italian Idyll). We adore the Coliseum-inspired pool, which could have easily read as cheesy but is the delightful opposite, and the fact that each neutral-swathed bungalow on the property has an Italian limestone fireplace, exposed beam ceiling and a soaking tub Pope Francis himself might appreciate (plus, Southern California necessities like Bose stereo systems, plasma TVs and granite wet bars).

You're here because

You long to wander through olive groves, lavender and cypress, but you can’t take two weeks off work to do jet-lag to Italy justice. Thankfully, this resort has all that (seriously: they replanted 100-year-old olive trees) and more—so beautifully scented you wish you could bottle it.

The Moment

“Sure,” you think. “It looks like Italy. But does it taste like it?” Pelican Hill’s restaurateurs have perfected dishes that would pass any nonni’s muster, including gelato made fresh every day. When they begin to prepare your risotto tableside within a giant wheel of parmesan, you can feel yourself literally floating up to heaven.
