Ojai Tourism

Quaintly reminiscent of southern Spain, Ojai is as good as it gets when it comes to refreshing breaks from chaotic routines. There are a lot of opportunities for R&R here; whether its romance & relaxation, restoration & rejuvenation and of course, plenty of incentives to rest & reconnect. Shangri-la as it’s fondly known, Ojai has acted as a retreat for wellness seekers for years.

Sun kissed mountains try to touch the clouds, millions of yellow flowers dance to the rhythm of the fresh breeze and heartwarming landscapes beckon to be explored. Really, Ojai is as good as its pictures! In fact, even better.

Ojai has held on to its small town vibe despite offering some world class art and shopping - expect charming art boutiques and unique shopping in Spanish style arcades that take you to the sepia colored coastal towns of Spain . To satiate your sweet craving, Ojai has some exquisite bakeries that nudge you to forget your diet and just indulge. The spas here merit a special mention. They have successfully preserved the heritage of Ojai and offer unbelievable pampering and wellness.

If you’re outdoorsy (even if you’re not, Ojai will transform you into one), you can try hiking, boating and of course, fishing. Picnic amidst the best of nature and go back to the simple days as you cycle around this gorgeous town, with the wind in your hair and not a single worry in your head.
