Welcome to The Ritz-Carlton, Half Moon Bay

Experience true luxury at our Half Moon Bay resort

rcBreakText rcBreakWhiteText

When the surrounding area is rich with natural resources and beauty, luxury comes with a distinctly local touch. At The Ritz-Carlton Half Moon Bay guests can savor the Northern California sunset on a beautiful evening. Sample fine wines from vintners along the coast, craft smores over an open fire on their private terrace, discover the nourishing benefits of pumpkin at the spa or tee off on two championship golf courses that are as beautiful as they are well designed. Holding court on a bluff overlooking the ocean and just 20 miles from San Francisco International Airport this beach resort in San Francisco California celebrates its surroundings with an experience rooted in the element of fire and the discovery of wine.
