The Ranch Buyout

Create your own hotel buyout experience and turn our 200-acre property into your private oasis for a week or longer.


Renowned for our results-oriented fitness and wellness program, The Ranch Buyout allows families and friends the opportunity to transform our 21-cottage, 200-acre retreat into their own private respite for a week or longer. With a resort buyout, your group is immersed in nature with plenty of room to roam as you reconnect with each other and enjoy a memorable, camp-like experience.

Private groups seeking tangible health benefits will enjoy the rigor and results of a spa buyout with our signature weeklong wellness program that includes daily hiking, fitness classes, yoga and massage, complemented by a plant-based diet. For those with other interests, our team will work with you to design a daily schedule to meet your needs.

Create the ultimate kids’ summer camp as the adults experience a health and fitness program or week of relaxation of their own. If a plant-based culinary school is what your group desires, our award-winning chefs can craft a week of hands-on classes and activities in both the kitchen and the garden. Groups are also welcome to simply enjoy our property, 5-star service and Malibu location as a secluded backdrop for rest and reconnection.

“Being able to bring together my friends from around the world each year to spend a week at The Ranch is truly an annual highlight. It’s like having our own personal summer camp in the most beautiful and private setting! The week is filled with laughter, the food is divine, the hikes incredible and the staff tends to our every need. The best part is that we get to reconnect with ourselves and each other and leave healthier than we arrived!” – S.B. San Francisco, CA
