The original luxury spa retreat
When Deborah Szekely founded Golden Door in 1958, nothing like it existed anywhere in the U.S.
With its focus on balancing mind, body, and spirit and unparalleled commitment to service, Golden Door paved the way for a new type of spa experience – one that married inner and outer transformation with luxury amenities. More than half a century later, Golden Door is still considered a pioneer among destination spa retreats thanks to its innovative approach to program development and vast connections with leading-edge experts in fitness, health, and eastern philosophy.
The Golden Door prides itself in providing you with exceptional service. Read what our guests are saying.
The story behind our California health spa resort
Before founding Golden Door, Deborah Szekely and her husband managed a modest retreat called Rancho La Puerta (Spanish for “The Door”) in Baja California, Mexico, that grew over time from a "bring-your-own-tent" health farm to a beautiful, Spanish-style resort. Although Rancho La Puerta was a success, many of Szekely’s guests expressed interest in a more luxurious spa experience. The Golden Door health spa in southern California was Szekely’s response. Little did she know that by opening Golden Door, she was beginning a revolution in personal health and fitness that would lead to the birth of an entire industry.
