Golden Door Spa Resort

| October 28, 2014 | Parties

Riviera hosted an exclusive dinner at North County's iconic Golden Door Spa Resort, newly reopened after a multi-million dollar refresher. The verdant property, a celeb haunt for decades, boasts stunning Japanese architecture and manicured zen gardens, and is criss-crossed by paths that lead to A-class spa facilities. Guests meandered the grounds, ending at the property's labyrinth, a sacred space ringed by old oaks, where they donned Golden Door robes before sitting down to dine at rustic tables hewn from ancient felled trees. The menu? Light and spa chic, with produce from the Golden Door gardens and dishes like oak grilled California king salmon and a persimmon pudding served with blackberry marmalade and oak-infused ice cream.
