The Oaks at Ojai: A Perfect Getaway for Moms

Last Updated on

It’s no secret that we ♥ moms.

Mom bakes us special treats, washes our laundry, and puts bandages on our wounds. When it comes to traveling, Mom packs our bags, remembers our favorite toys, creates games on long layovers, and sings us to sleep in unfamiliar hotels. Whether or not mom is a butcher, baker, or candlestick maker, she is still CEO of her household.  She deserves a hefty salary for her position, but often is left with a thankless job. We ♥ moms!

(Psst…  moms.  If you are reading this post, be sure to share it with your family- they’ll love the gift & activity idea tips, you’ll score an awesome Mother’s Day.)

Oaks at Ojai: Relaxing by the Pool

We sent Southern California Destination Guroo, Sisily Calvert, on the “grueling assignment” of reviewing The Oaks at Ojai, a fitness destination spa located about 90 minutes northwest of Los Angeles (you can see Sisily hard at work in the photo above.) The Oaks at Ojai is not only ready to pamper their guests through their relaxing and therapeutic spa services, but they also focus on fitness offering three delicious and calorie-conscious meals a day, 15 daily fitness classes, evening entertainment, and seminars.

My stay at The Oaks reminded me about the importance of reconnecting my mind, body, and soul. Through educational classes and speakers, exercise classes, hiking, morning walks, art strolls, and the nurturing staff, I was able to take a much needed deep breath and come back to my daily life with a brand new perspective.” -Sisily Calvert


Oaks at Ojai Accommodations

The Oaks at Ojai is located in the heart of Ojai, CA a charming, peaceful community full of natural beauty, serenity, and fresh beginnings. Originally a 1920s hotel, the spa still features forty-six beautifully decorated guest rooms for your overnight accommodations.  Sisily raves:

The room I stayed in had a beautiful set up. I had my own private patio and sitting area, completely enclosed for privacy; a living room area with a fireplace; and a bathroom with a large shower and Jacuzzi bathtub.”

Oaks at Ojai ActivtiesActivities at The Oaks range from hiking, art tours, and in-line skating to rock climbing, guided kayaking tours, belly dancing, yoga ropes, and qi gong. Full spa services, including massages and an over-the-top Vitamin C Facial recommended by Sisily, can be arranged a la carte. Friendly staff help you choose activities and treatments to suit your specific goals and desires.

While staying at The Oaks, your three daily meals focused on your health. Low calorie, yet high in taste and satisfaction, the food at The Oaks will help you achieve your personal weight loss or maintenance goals on vacation.

It was the first time I came back from vacation without the worry of the 2 lbs I usually put on eating out. Genius! If you have an allergy, or if you are like me, a vegetarian, they are very accommodating to your personal needs.

We know you’ll fall in love with The Oaks. Sisily did:

I absolutely fell in love with everything about The Oaks. It is a place I see myself talking my sister, my mother, my best friend. What a wonderful place to become raw and reconnect with the people you love the most without any of the outside noise of daily life.”
