Rancho Valencia Resort & Spa has the distinction of being the only hotel in San Diego County and one of just six in the state to make it onto Travel + Leisure’s annual ranking of the best hotels in the world.
The latest results of its 2016 World’s Best Awards, released this week, represents a who’s who of the hospitality world. Properties range from an equestrian retreat in South Carolina to an “industrial chic expedition” property in Chile. Rancho Valencia is ranked at No. 50 among the top 100 hotels worldwide.
The rankings are based on a survey of Travel + Leisure readers who were invited to offer their opinions on a wide variety of categories, from airlines and cruise ships to hotels and tour operators, based on defined characteristics provided by the magazine and its digital marketing firm partner, Wylei. The Rancho Valencia, like other hotels, were graded on such criteria as location, rooms and facilities, food, service and value.
“The World’s Best Awards survey results provide an eye-opening window into what the most sophisticated travelers find both exciting and fulfilling right now,” said Travel + Leisure Editor Nathan Lump. “They are seeking out the unusual and the special, this year showcasing an obvious preference for far-flung, exotic, active, and adventurous trips. Even their favorite places closer to home show a desire for discovery and a willingness to explore and try new things.”
The 45-acre Rancho Valencia, located in Rancho Santa Fe, underwent a $30 million renovation a few years ago and has been winning accolades from multiple travel-rating sources since then. Among Travel + Leisure’s ranking of top resort hotels in the continental U.S., Rancho Valencia came in at No. 15. No other San Diego County property made the list.
Travel + Leisure’s 2016 ranking marks the first time Rancho Valencia has catapulted onto the world’s best hotels list, although it has been among the top U.S. hotels in the past.
Rancho Valencia’s ownership team consists of Qualcomm founder Irwin Jacobs’ family, including brothers Jeff, Hal, Gary and Paul, as well as entrepreneur and co-founder of Fiji Water, Doug Carlson; and San Diego real estate developer Jeffrey Essakow.
