The Spa at Terranea Resort - Review by BeautySmith

After spending a heavenly weekend at Terranea (terra-NAY-a) Resort, it’s time to get back to reality. Although I do live in sunny Southern California, I don’t typically wake up to room service on a peninsula that feels worlds away from everything else. So for me, and I would assume for most people, it’s an absolute treat to visit an ocean front resort that offers so many luxurious amenities. Just south of Los Angeles, Terranea Resort is perfectly perched on the edge of the Pacific Ocean in Palos Verdes. The old-world Mediterranean architecture enhances the ambiance, giving it an unexplained feeling of comfort and familiarity. Poised on 102 pristine acres with breathtaking panoramic ocean views, this world-class resort offers countless ways to spend each day. Who doesn’t like a seamless check-in with champagne in hand? After admiring the ocean view suite, I dashed off to take the ocean trail hike that was offered. I was the only one that showed up at 4:00 PM. Yay for me, I love private tours! Debbie, one of the fitness instructors, showed me the lay of the land. It was an excellent way to stretch my legs after the car ride and learn more about the property...
