A hidden gem within driving distance of San Francisco, our Half Moon Bay resort offers a spectacular setting overlooking the Pacific Ocean
The warm invitation of a cozy fire and the delight of discovery in a local wine are at the heart of the guest experience at The Ritz-Carlton, Half Moon Bay. Set upon a bluff overlooking the Pacific Ocean, this luxury resort offers a secluded setting that is also easily accessible, whether arriving at SFO airport just 23 miles away, or exploring destinations including downtown San Francisco, Napa Valley and Santa Cruz. The only Bay area golf resort with a coastal setting, the Half Moon Bay hotel features two championship courses that appeal to players of varying skill level, and numerous opportunities to enjoy the scenic setting. On the Ocean Lawn, communal firepits welcome guests to roast marshmallows and watch the sunset, while the VIK program encourages young travelers to explore the luxury resort on a scavenger hunt.
Luxury at this Half Moon Bay hotel is inspired by the surroundings, from the coastal décor in guest rooms and suites to the locally sourced menus and wine offerings at the restaurants.
