Terranea Resort Press Release


(February 20, 2019) — 

Terranea Resort marks a milestone anniversary this summer as the independent resort celebrates 10 years in the breathtaking Southern California enclave of Rancho Palos Verdes. Since opening in June 2009, Terranea has earned a reputation of offering exceptional and memorable guest experiences and delivering a deeply committed level of service to each of the nearly 2.5 million guests who have walked through the doors in the past decade. The resort's commitment to the surrounding community has also continually exceeded sustainability goals and efforts to reduce its eco-footprint. Says Terranea Resort President Terri A. Haack, "It is through the support of our beloved neighbors, local partners, and all members of the incredible Palos Verdes Peninsula that we continue to thrive—and create a memorable resort experience for every guest who enters our doors—a decade in. To commemorate this marquee year, we will host a variety of celebratory events and distinctive guest activities throughout 2019."

"At the core of Terranea are the five experiential pillars of the brand—Discovery, Epicurean, Wellness, Celebration and Community—which guide and help define nearly every facet of the resort and offer experiences that are ‘uniquely Terranea'," says Chief Strategy Officer & Executive Vice President Agnelo Fernandes. "From the Falconry Meet & Greet (Discovery) with the resort's own, on-site falconer; and Sea Salt and Kelp Workshops (Epicurean) using salt harvested at Terranea's Sea Salt Conservatory, to signature events including the Immersive Wellness at Terranea (Wellness) series, Music on the Meadows (Celebration) and Terranea Turns Pink (Community); the five pillars have shaped the evolution of the guest experience over the past decade." Guests are invited to experience many of these unique activities and more by checking each off the Terranea Bucket List. As part of the year-long anniversary, Terranea invites everyone to "Celebrate with Us" and receive a special offer on stays now through June 2020 by using the promo code: CELEBRATE10 (restrictions and blackout dates apply).

Over the last 10 years, Terranea also contributed to regional job creation and opportunities for associates through "Terranea Proud," a workplace culture that puts value on diversity, family, community and work-life balance while celebrating individuals and creating an environment that gives each associate a sense of personal value. "We work hard to create a sustainable culture of passionate, refreshing and heartfelt service, "says Fernandes. "Taking care of people has always been a hallmark of Terranea, whether it's for our valued guests or trusted associates. It's a commitment we take pride in—and always will." Laundry Supervisor Carmen Z., who has been working at the resort since it opened in 2009, says, "The work culture at Terranea embraces diversity. We value each other's culture without any question." Another 10-year veteran, In-room Dining Coordinator Ramie B., reveals, "It's family. My relationships with my colleagues extend beyond the workplace.  We go through everything together." "Unity. Solidarity. Passion," are the words Sheillah S., Housekeeping Supervisor, uses to describe the company culture at Terranea, where she has worked for a decade.

Since its opening in 2009, Terranea has listened to the voices of its guests and reinvested over $40 million into the resort via property-wide enhancements including the opening of contemporary Asian restaurant bashi in 2012, the establishment of the Golf Academy at The Links in 2014, a comprehensive redesign and enhancement of all guestrooms in 2017 and launching a new, all-day restaurant - Solviva - centered on balancing wellness of the body and mind with nutrient-rich food that improves circadian rhythm, function, and mood.
