Experience a New Environment at The Ritz Carlton: Half Moon Bay

Escape to The Ritz Carlton, Half Moon Bay – the solitary oceanfront retreat in the San Francisco Bay region that transports guests to a majestic Scottish manor situated atop a seaside cliff. The sophisticated and stylish interior invites guests to unwind and indulge in a luxurious Autumn escape.

Throughout autumn and winter, the coastline is renowned for its breathtaking waves and impressive grey whale sightings migrating from Alaska to Baja California.

Originally christened as ‘Spanishtown,’ Half Moon Bay adopted its current name in 1874 owing to its beautiful crescent-shaped harbor. It is also renowned as ‘The Pumpkin Capital,’ producing over 3,000 tons of pumpkins annually by local farmers.

Indulge in Fall specials at The Ritz-Carlton, Half Moon Bay featuring locally procured ingredients in its dining establishments and Spa.

Embrace the essence of autumn with an 80-minute pumpkin facial at the spa, promoting harmony between the skin and the seasonal spirit. The treatment encompasses cleansing, exfoliation, and the application of a seasonal pumpkin enzyme mask. Completing the session, a booster serum, moisturizer, and a luxury foot treatment are administered. Guests can opt for a micro-current or ampoule treatment as extras.

The spa amenities include a shared Roman soaking tub with an adjoining fireplace, Tsunami showers, whirlpool, sauna, and steam rooms. Visitors without spa bookings can access these facilities for $45 per person per day.

The 261-room resort features guestrooms and suites flaunting oceanfront, coastal, and golf course vistas. The fire pit suites stand out as a unique lodging choice, offering personal firepits on outdoor patios with captivating Pacific Ocean views.

Enter a commodious living area where the master bedroom boasts a king-size bed adorned with premium cotton linens. Each guest receives a plush terrycloth bathrobe while the marble bathroom includes a separate shower, oversized soaking tub, and lavish Asprey bath amenities.

Step outdoors, ignite a crackling fire for warmth, relax in Adirondack chairs, and inhale the invigorating ocean breeze. Scientific studies suggest numerous health benefits from breathing in salt-laden air, enhancing the immune, respiratory, and skin systems.

Both oceanview dining venues, The Conservatory and Navio, craft menus showcasing the bounty of locally sourced seafood and produce.

The Conservatory provides a contemporary beach house vibe and is an ideal spot for breakfast planning. The lunch and dinner menus feature California-inspired dishes, complemented by craft cocktails and wines from nearby Sonoma Valley and Napa.

At the visually striking Navio, enjoy fresh seafood, prime meat cuts, and coastal produce amidst a nautical ceiling design by Chef de Cuisine Francisco Simón and team. Chef Simón, previously honored with two Michelin stars in Barcelona, collaborates with guest chefs in the Global Cuisine Series held throughout the year.

Don’t miss the exclusive culinary event on November 11-13, featuring guest chef Noah Sandoval from the two Michelin-starred Oriole in Chicago. Together they present a seven-course Chef’s Tasting dinner menu and a two-hour brunch experience on November 12–13, showcasing Oriole’s contemporary American delicacies.

The daily resort fee includes various enriching amenities, starting with a complimentary glass of wine at check-in between 12 p.m. to 10 p.m.

Access the fitness center for an invigorating ocean view workout with cardio and weight training equipment alongside a range of free-standing weight machines.

Grab a Coastal Trail map and take a hotel bicycle for a scenic ride along the golf course, past the bluffs, and into Half Moon Bay town and beyond. This area hosts over 20% of North American bird species. Explore paved and dirt paths to Pescadero Marsh and Pillar Point Marsh for birdwatching.

Enjoy pumpkin patches and festivals in Half Moon Bay during fall for a festive and rejuvenating experience.

Enhance your overall well-being with a round of golf on one of the resort’s championship courses. The daily resort fee covers equipment use for the practice green at Half Moon Bay Golf Links Pro Shop.
