Ritz Carlton Half Moon Bay

Ritz Carlton Half Moon Bay



The Ritz Carlton, Half Moon Bay is a 5-star resort and one of the global Ritz Carlton luxury accommodations brands. Set on the northern California coastline in the United States, this beachfront hotel overlooks the rugged and beautiful landscape along the Pacific Ocean.

Location

The hotel delightfully sits above the Bay with coastal views in an area of outstanding natural beauty. A golfer's paradise with two world-class championship golf courses on-site is also an ideal location for walking, hiking, biking, or surfing. 

Staycationers particularly like this part of California to retreat from busy city lives. Besides, the Redwood Forest, Moss Beach, and local wineries are all additional visitor attractions. 

Moon Bay, in San Mateo County, has a quaint village-type atmosphere with pretty buildings. Its history dates back to the 1800s. Even so, it is only 30 minutes from the very different world of San Francisco and Silicon Valley. 

Additionally, you can easily reach most beaches and notable sites by car. Besides, the resort is about a 40-minute drive from San Francisco International Airport.

Style and Hospitality

At first glance, the hotel, with its weathered stone facade stretching out atop a rugged bluff, seems like a typical Victorian Scottish golfing lodge. The impressive façade is often first glimpsed through the romantic swirling sea mists set back from fine gardens with huge gas fire pits for outdoor dining. 

The impeccable staff and management standards and luxurious modern amenities align with other hotels' top-notch quality within this brand. 

The grays and pale blues of the interior décor also reflect the Moon Bay seascape and the resort's relaxing mood. Moreover, the reception staff is welcoming and efficient, and guests are offered a glass of house wine on arrival.

Rooms

The hotel has an impressive 261 guest rooms and luxury suites. Rooms continue with the calming tones of gray and sky. Moreover, they offer supremely comfortable beds with fine linens and patterned misty-gray comfort carpeting. 

Additionally, scenic views from wide windows are over the gardens and golf course or coastline. Some rooms have dramatic ocean views. Others also have balconies or terrace fire pits and a couple of accompanying wooden Adirondack chairs. 

Marble bathrooms with pretty window shutters have rainforest showers, big deep tubs, and a range of luxury toiletries. In-room amenities include entertainment systems, internet access, and Nespresso coffee makers. 

Furthermore, upgrades to Club Level mean guests can enjoy the luxury of a cozy lounge with all-day dining options and personal concierge services.

Suites

These stylish suites have all the luxury features of the rooms. However, there is more living space, separate bedrooms, dining areas, and fireplaces. Beds are the 4-poster style with downy coverings, 100% Egyptian cotton linens, and non-allergenic pillows. 

Additionally, opulent bathrooms have an added powder room and the luxury of Asprey bath toiletries. Many suites also enjoy sweeping views from wide or wrap-around windows along the coast and over the Bay. 

Wi-Fi is standard in all suites. There are also lovely china blue patterned wall coverings and upholstery vies with navy accents on sofas and rugs. Moreover, Half Moon Bay Guest House apartments are a little away from the main building. These offer spacious accommodation especially suitable for families.

Ritz Dining. Navio, the Conservatory, and Ocean Terrace

All three dining areas at the resort enjoy the fabulous ocean and coastal views. In a farm-to-table variation, Navio offers an inspired American food menu of ocean-to-table seafood dishes with other fresh local produce accompaniments. This bright and fresh restaurant serves breakfast, dinner, and a trendy Sunday brunch. 

Additionally, the Conservatory is decked out as a beach house. It serves upscaled Californian comfort food to sustain guests before/after walking, swimming, golf, or other pursuits. The Ocean Terrace offers outdoor dining in fine weather overlooking the Pacific with a raw bar (prawns, crab, and oysters) and grills. 

Drinks include signature cocktails, Californian wines, and local craft beers. On chilly evenings, a Scottish piper will accompany your drinks by a warming open fire pit.

Spa and Fitness

The Ritz Spa is a diva-sized glamorous place. It offers high-end products, treatments, and therapies by famed names ESPA, Eminence, and Tatcha.

Locally sourced natural products also feature in this luxurious spa facility. Separate ladies and gentlemen facilities include steam baths, sauna, and whirlpool with luxurious relaxation lounges after spa treatments. 

A Roman soaking tub and heated indoor pool are usually also available to guests. 

There is also a 24-hour fitness center. This is a facility with cardiovascular and weight-training equipment, yoga, and other exercise lessons.

Resort Fee

The daily resort fee covers group exercise lessons, use of the tennis courts, equipment plus access, and use of the spa facilities. Private or group tennis lessons at the six hotel courts are also covered, and some concessions for golfers.

Children

The Moon Bay resort is beautiful to guests bringing young children with them. The Ritz Kids and VIK programs provide entertainment and exciting educational daily events for young visitors. 

Arts and crafts, swimming, beach games, and learning activities with trained caregivers give 5-12 year-olds plenty to fill their days. There are also half-day options for very young ones, or the VIK (essential kids) program allows these younger kids to enjoy supervised scavenger hunts (with prizes). 

Additionally, there is a kid’s night out for all children staying at the moon bay hotel. Kids menus are also available in the restaurants and in-room service.

Pets

This downtown half moon bay resort pet policy allows only dogs. Also, fees apply, but they are welcome and catered for. It needs to be noted, though, that the official policy advises that dogs are not allowed in the swimming pool or on the golf course!

Meetings and Events

The Ritz has plenty of space indoors and outside for meetings and events. This is, of course, with top-notch planning and catering to ensure smooth running. With the backdrop of the marine blue Pacific, lovely gardens, and handsome architectural features, the hotel is also a fine setting for weddings.

Takeaway

Denver benefits from the beauty of the Rocky Mountains, the mighty river, and winter waterfalls. This magnificent hotel with fine amenities and top-class hospitality provides an ideal base from which to enjoy all the bay area has to offer.
