San Marcos, CA
A physical and mental enlightenment
What we think
Skylark only includes hotels that meet our stamp of approval. Our editorial review for this one isn’t ready yet — but we’re working on it! Below is the hotel’s own description.
The Golden Door experience has been designed to empower guests to reposition themselves at the center of their own lives by tending to their bodies, their minds and their spirits. Here, a hike is as much a rigorous morning exercise as it is a chance to reflect on the day ahead, and a meal is the means by which we learn to satisfy — rather than simply feed — our hunger. Through a program of fitness training and refined nourishment coupled with indulgent, caring spa treatments, guests are able to treat their bodies with the respect and care they deserve.

Watch the hens roam the mountainside in a pen so large it almost doesn’t exist. Here, eating is good for you, good for the earth, and good for the farmers who grow it.
