Opening June 2009 Spa Terranea
In less than 10 months will come Terranea (ter-a-NAY-a) Resort, a new property in Southern California magnificently poised above the Pacific, a mere 30 minutes from Los Angeles.
Artfully sculpted above the Pacific on 102 pristine acres with 270 degree oceanfront views, Terranea offers luxurious accommodations in 400 spacious hotel rooms, suites and bungalows. To the enviable few who acquire ownership status at Terranea, a limited collection of ownership opportunities include 50 private casitas and 32 private villas.
Arguably the only luxury resort destination to grace the Los Angeles coast, Terraneas architecture and design aim to complement its greatest natural asset the Pacific. Rising from the waters edge, Terranea Resort preserves its inseparable relationship with the ocean, protecting and enhancing opportunities to bond with the Pacific. All elements of the Resort will embrace radiant ocean views.
All of the resort amenities are designed to inspire reverence for the natural beauty of the place. Amenities include three signature restaurants, three sparkling pools, a 25,000 square foot oceanfront spa with breathtaking views of Catalina Island, childrens center, retail shops and a secluded, shore line cove. Offering over 135,000 square feet of exceptional indoor and outdoor meeting and event space, and boasting function rooms with spectacular ocean view settings, Terranea is the new choice for meeting planners. With a clear commitment to the communities of the Palos Verdes Peninsula, it also will become a welcome refuge for romantic weddings and spectacular social events.
At Terranea, one can walk among the indigenous plants and trees that inspired the explorers to call the land Rancho de los Palos Verdes: the canyon of green trees. Guests can sharpen their short game on a 9-hole par three golf course, or challenge themselves on championship links at the Trump National Golf Club, just minutes away. One can also admire the work of local artisans, walk and hike along miles of nature trails, or observe whales, sea lions and dolphins at play in their natural habitat. At Terranea, guests will find heart-melting beauty and unrivaled experiences.
Spa Terranea, an exceptional retreat nestled in a secluded unrivaled setting with sweeping views of the Pacific and Catalina Island, is one of the only locations in the world where, at certain times of the year, guests can enjoy both an inspiring sunrise and a meditative sunset over the ocean from the same vantage point. This stunning location combined with treatments and services that pay homage to natures rhythms promise spa-goers a true California-style sanctuary for the senses.

Treatments Time is of the essence and Spa Terranea believes that by responding to nature's rhythm guests re-awaken to their own natural bio-rhythms. In the morning while rested and energized, guests are invited to participate in a brisk walk along the peninsula, inhaling the therapeutic salt air while the breezes stimulate mind and spirit. When the day is young and full of promise, treatments and activities correspond to our active, energetic nature. In the afternoon and evening, treatments and activities become less energetic, more calming and contemplative in nature.
Signature Treatments Signature treatments are inspired by Terraneas pristine, natural environment.

Powerful and potent, Crystal Quartz harmonizes water crystals thus enhancing the quality and efficacy of hydrotherapy treatments.
EL SEGUNDO BLUE A sedating, warm cocoon of algae, marine clay and essential oils provides rest and renewal and the promise of a soulful transformation.
