National Relaxation Day

Relax – It’s National Relaxation Day

Some say that sometimes the most productive thing you can do is relax and today is the day to adopt this philosophy fully. In honor of  National Relaxation Day, we are excited to share some ideas on how to take full advantage of this awesome holiday, not only today but every day.

Using the Portola Hotel and surrounding areas as our inspiration – here are a few ideas to get into ultimate relaxation mode!

Inhale & Exhale
Check-in, then check out during a relaxing spa day at our Spa on the Plaza. Rejuvenate your inner glow and pamper yourself from head to toe. From massages to facials, detox wraps to soaking tubs – take some “me time” at the spa.

A Healthy Dose of Vitamin Sea
Order food to go from our Jacks Monterey, sip on some bubbly and plan the ultimate beach picnic and frolic in the sea at one of the many beach secluded coves dotting the coastline of the Monterey Peninsula.

Do Not Disturb
Order breakfast in and relax in your well-appointed guest room. Open the windows and enjoy the fresh sea air. Grab your favorite novel and sit outside on the patio or deck, enjoy a cup of herbal tea or coffee and just live in the moment.

Enjoy the View
Lace up your sneakers and take a sunset stroll along the Coastal Recreation Trail, located just steps from the Portola. Let your mind be free while walking along the water’s edge.

Feed Your Soul
There’s nothing more relaxing than breaking bread with good friends or someone special. Begin with a glass of Monterey County Wine and appetizers in the bar at Jacks Monterey, then sit under the twinkle lights and trees in our atrium. Indulge in globally inspired, California Cultural Cuisine including fresh, sustainable seafood; locally grown ingredients; and of course, dessert.
