Rancho Palos Verdes, California, United States
One of just a few true mega-resorts in Southern California, the 100-acre, 582-room Terranea in Rancho Palos Verdes offers a range of features that's unrivaled among Los-Angeles-area properties, including a top-tier spa, nine holes of golf, six restaurants, three pools, and gorgeous, manicured grounds. The "beach" at Terranea is too rocky to really be considered a beach, but it's still undeniably beautiful.
