Spa Profile: Spa Calamigos at Calamigos Guest Ranch & Beach Club
In the Native American Chumash language, the word “Calamigos” means, “Come as my brother, come as my friend.” It was the first work spoken to J. Grant Gerson in 1937 when he and his family were welcome to the sacred grounds that Calamigos Guest Ranch & Beach Club are located on to this day. The unique luxury destination in Malibu, California encompasses a private 250-acre ranch and exclusive beachfront club for guests. The expansive luxury eco-safe resort has private cottages, bungalows and estate rooms that are cozy, intimate spaces where guests can enjoy themselves within the undisturbed nature of the ranch.
The ranch also offers a private luxury shuttle that takes overnight guests of the resort down to Calamigos Beach Club, which is located just 12 minutes from the main property along iconic Pacific Coast Highway. From paddle board lessons to relaxing at the beach to dining at the beachy mid-century-inspired Calamigos Beach Club Restaurant, guests can leave all their worries and cares behind while enjoying their time in one of the world’s most beautiful beachside destinations.
Spa Calamigos, which is also located on the ranch, offers an array of wellness and beauty treatments—from outdoor massages and aromatherapy to cupping and facials—which are designed to help relax and awaken one’s senses. Special spa packages such as The Calamigos (130 min/$310), which includes an 80-minute Calamigos Signature Massage and a 50-minute Calamigos Custom Organic Facial, provide guests with the best of both worlds. We interviewed Spa Director Brie Woodey, who shared insider tips and special bonuses, recommended spa treatments, top amenities, and more.
