Asian-inspired elements such as bamboo and flowering ginger create the serene sanctuary that is the family-run, boutique beauty Tradewinds Carmel. Its 28 rooms are havens of feather-down beds and silk pillows. Spend time in the spa or in the Zen garden to recenter your mind, body and soul. Unwind before bed with a drink from your suite’s Japanese tansu wet bar. Throw on a kimono robe and simply do nothing as you sit beside the cozy fireplace; or soak your troubles away in your jetted bath tub.
