Spa Profile: Spa Ojai at Ojai Valley Inn
For a luxurious and tranquil getaway in Ojai, the AAA Five-Diamond Ojai Valley Inn provides an enchanting resort experience. The resort is tucked within the Topa Topa Mountains across 22 acres painted with oaks, olive trees, sage, and lavender. The beautiful property is home to a golf course, artist cottage, apiary, swimming pools, restaurants, and The Farmhouse event center. The 31,000 square-foot Spa Ojai is surrounded by Spa Village, providing a renewing setting for a relaxing escape. We caught up with Spa Director Kate Morrison to find out what makes a visit to Spa Ojai a one-of-a-kind experience.
Why You’ll Love It: Spa Ojai was built in 1997 as the first stand-alone spa village that was not physically attached to a hotel. We are located in the Ojai Valley, surrounded by citrus and avocado orchards and the beautiful Topa Topa Mountains. The Spanish colonial design of our building paired with the warmth of our associates makes guests feel welcome and pampered from the moment they arrive. Guests are drawn to us and return frequently due to the vibe of California luxury that is unique to our property. At Spa Ojai, we embrace the positive and spiritual energy for which Ojai is known, and deliver wellness experiences that honor the desires of our guests and the ambiance that surrounds them.
Key Features: The Spa Ojai Village includes two pools, five whirlpools, steam rooms, saunas, several relaxation lounges, an outdoor courtyard, Spa Cafe, Spa Boutique, fitness facilities, 25 luxurious treatment rooms, and two Spa Penthouse Guest Suites for overnight stays. As an extension of Spa Ojai, we also house a Spiritual Wellness Center and Artist Cottage and Apothecary for creative wellness experiences. All guests of Spa Ojai are invited to enjoy our newly remodeled gym featuring Peloton bikes and state-of-the-art Technogym equipment, and may participate in any of our complimentary wellness classes offered throughout the day, ranging from yoga and TRX to nutritional lectures.

Splurge Treatment: Ojai’s East West Ritual for Balanced Beauty is our signature esthetic ritual that celebrates the unique spiritual energy of the valley while delivering a premium facial using Kypris skin care. Kypris is a luxurious line of holistic, high-performance skin care boasting organic, wild-crafted, and sustainably grown ingredients. Representing the East West Valley that surrounds us, polarity techniques are incorporated throughout the treatment to harmonize and attune the flow of energy through the body. This deeply renewing journey includes a facial massage using rose quartz crystals, nurturing touch and energy work to create a truly holistic approach to skin care that will leave your skin, mind, and spirit balanced and rejuvenated.
Unique Treatment: The Kuyam experience was created just for us and can only be experienced at Spa Ojai. In Chumash, the word "Kuyam" translates to "a place to rest together." A Kuyam takes place in a Moroccan-tiled room at a temperature of 130 degrees. Guests are instructed to self-apply three types of healing clay all over their bodies and relax into a 30-minute guided meditation (recorded by a Chumash elder specifically for this service). All the while, the lights are dim and lemongrass is steamed for a cleansing inhalation therapy. At the end of the meditation, guests rinse the clay off in a private shower and rest on a private patio to allow their core body temperature to cool. A communal Kuyam can be experienced with others or you may book the Kuyam privately.
