When you come to visit Monterey, there are a number of luxuries specific to the area that you must enjoy. Take a load off, and spoil yourself on your upcoming Monterey vacation. For a little guidance, check out our list of places around town where you can treat yourself.
Nearby in Monterey County’s gorgeous coastal city of Pacific Grove, Passion Fish is a locally-sourced Californian-inspired restaurant. Specializing in artisanal and sustainably produced ingredients, and rare wines, it’s the perfect restaurant to treat yourself at. The intimate dining room complements the magnificent, yet simple dishes. We recommend the sea scallops with artichoke risotto cake, smoked trout ceviche tostaditas, and the spoonable 12-hour lamb roast.
Located in the iconic Monterey Canning Company on Cannery Row in Downtown Monterey, the Carmel Ridge Winery Tasting Room is a gorgeous venue to sample varietals from one of the region’s favorite vineyards. On the outside is a bustling downtown neighborhood and a gorgeous coastal view of Monterey Bay. Inside there are countless bottles, tasting packages, and an operation that’s been voted one of Monterey County’s best tasting rooms, which says a lot here.
Check out beloved local service Monterey Bay Sailing for private bay cruise options ranging from one hour to a full day. To experience a truly magical time on the water, inquire about their special sunset cruises, which should not be enjoyed without a nice bottle of wine or champagne. This service along with countless others around town can cater to couples, families, small and large groups.
Serenity Spa at The Sanctuary Beach Resort is one of Monterey’s best destinations for massages, treatments, and general rejuvenation. Come stay at our coastal property and treat yourself at our onsite spa with a deep tissue massage, or one of the special treatments and facial services. For more information, check out the spa page.
When you stay at The Sanctuary Beach Resort, you’re staying in a cozy cottage set on an undisturbed stretch of Monterey Bay beach. This means that you can treat yourself by taking a short break from the stress of working, parenting, and running your day-to-day life, just to sit on the beach and enjoy the calm of the waves for a few hours. You’ll probably get some good sun while you’re at it too!
