Luxury Travelers Crown Rosewood CordeValle as California’s #1 Resort Hotel

Congratulations to Rosewood CordeValle Resort in San Martin, California for being chosen by Travel + Leisure’s readers as the Best Resort Hotel in California. The resort received the highest overall score (98 out of 100) in a 2017 reader survey and outshone other luxury resorts in Napa, Mendocino, and throughout the golden state.

"We are incredibly honored to be recognized as the leading resort in California by the readers of Travel + Leisure,” said Luca Rutigliano, managing director of Rosewood CordeValle. “This award is a testament to all of the hard work, ingenuity and care that our entire staff puts towards ensuring that every guest has a memorable stay.” 

Nestled in the foothills of the Santa Cruz Mountains, Rosewood CordeValle is a serene oasis in the heart of the Northern California countryside. The sprawling property spans over 1,700 acres and includes an on-site winery and vineyard, signature Sense®, A Rosewood Spa, state-of-the-art meeting and conference rooms, three exquisite dining options and the award-winning Robert Trent Jones Jr. golf course, which stretches over 7,360 yards and offers 360-degree unobstructed mountain views. In July 2016, Rosewood CordeValle hosted the U.S. Women’s Open golf tournament, which brought renewed attention to its bucolic environs.

Rosewood CordeValle is located 30 miles south of San Jose and just a few minutes north of Gilroy. Resort guests can enjoy visiting the 25+ wineries along the Santa Clara Valley Wine Trail, discovering the outstanding restaurants and boutiques in historic downtown Gilroy, shopping at Gilroy Premium Outlets, and spending time with the kids at Gilroy Gardens Family Theme Park.

The resort’s proximity to the San Francisco Peninsula and South Bay make it a favorite not only of vacationers from out of state but also Silicon Valley executives in need of a recharge. “This is the best spot in Northern California,” one reader wrote. “The service was unparalleled.”

Rosewood CordeValle Resort offers special golf, tennis and spa packages throughout the year. To find more information and start planning your luxury Gilroy getaway, go to
