Disclosure: The Oaks invited me to a two night stay which includes all meals, fitness activities, classes and a spa treatment. All opinions expressed are my own
The Oaks at Ojai is a destination spa with all-inclusive healthy meals and snacks with fitness classes and beautiful rooms. It has everything you need for a great relaxation weekend with friends or even for a whole week of health detox.
I got invited to enjoy a weekend with my BFF at the Oaks. It was the perfect time, because I needed a new start of my healthy eating habits. It was also a great time to reconnect with my friend, because we have been so busy and we needed time to talk and just seat by the pool and talk. While I stayed there for a weekend I found 6 stellar reasons to stay at The Oaks at Ojai, here they are:
1. All-inclusive healthy food
The Oaks at Ojai offers calorie conscious food that is both satisfying and delicious. It is all natural and organic food and if you have any special dietary restrictions they can accommodate your meals if you request them in advance.
You pretty much choose how much you eat, so for example at breakfast you can have more than one muffin, but if you are visiting the Spa to jump start your weight loss, you might want to follow their suggestions.
There is no alcohol, sugar or salt available. But rest assured. They do not check your bags, so if you need some extra snacks you can take them to your room and keep them on the small refrigerator.
2. Exercise classes
The Oaks at Ojai offers daily schedule with exercise options. You can choose from Zumba, Pilates, Yoga and dance classes. They even offer aqua-exercise options. They also have a small gym with exercise equipment. We really liked the options of having hikes and walks around time. You can choose which classes to join and you have a balance between the activities you can choose.
3. Spa treatments
The Oaks at Spa has an amazing menu of Spa services for you to enjoy. Facials, massages, hair and nails are among the most popular. I was provided with an amazing facial that left my skin flawless. The products they use are top of the line and the amazing people at Skin Authority even send me some products home so I can continue my routine at home.
4. Awesome location for a getaway
If you have never been to Ojai, you need to pack your suite cases and head that way right now. It is a small town full of culture. Sunday is a great place to visit because they have a great farmer's market full of local grown and organic products.
The town also has very unique shops with lots of locally made products and great food and wine.
5. Comfortable Guest Rooms
The Oaks at Ojai has 46 guest rooms that vary from private rooms, courtyard suites, double rooms and double cottage rooms.
My BFF and I stayed at the Double Cottage Suite that that 2 queen beds, a spa tub in the bathroom with a separately shower and toilet area. It had a private porch with chair lounges, table with chairs on the private patio area. The room also had a living room with fireplace, a refrigerator, a foldout sofa and also two closets that were a hit with us, because each of us put our clothes without disrupting the other one.
6. Specials all year long
When you visit The Oaks at Ojai you can see all the discounts they have during the year.
One of my favorite ones is coming from November 1 to November 20 with BRING A FRIEND DISCOUNT! You can enjoy Twice the fun and a 25% discount for both of you when you share a room! Workout, chat poolside, explore Ojai and stay up late catching up as I did with my BFF!!!
