Hotel Overview

Featuring ski-in, ski-out access, a luxurious Spa and Fitness area, exceptional dining and impeccable service, The Ritz-Carlton Highlands, Lake Tahoe welcomes you to a sophisticated mountain retreat unlike any other. Ritz Carlton Highlands, Lake Tahoe is a year-round destination resort that includes 170 guest rooms, 23 private Ritz-Carlton Residences and 25 Ritz-Carlton Club fractional ownership units. Visit The Ritz-Carlton Highlands, Lake Tahoe and find a sophisticated Northern California mountain retreat nestled mid-mountain on Northstar resort. The resort is the perfect place to explore the California wilderness, whether skiing in winter, hiking or mountain biking in the summer or any of the countless other activities in the area.

The hotel features 170 guest rooms and suites including The Ritz-Carlton Suite and The Ritz-Carlton Club lounge.

The Ritz-Carlton Club® Level redefines the luxury hotel experience, combining intimacy, comfort and exclusivity with the personalized service and attention to detail that are the hallmarks of The Ritz-Carlton. This oasis is often referred to as a hotel within a hotel, where a dedicated concierge attends to individual needs in a well-appointed, relaxed lounge environment. With continuous culinary offerings throughout the day (breakfast, light snacks, hors d' oeuvres, beverages and sweets) and access to a computer station - it is the ideal place to conduct business, plan a family outing or simply unwind.

At the 94-seat Manzanita restaurant along with 71-seat bar and lounge area, it is all about the kitchen and acclaimed chef Traci Des Jardins. The menu at Manzanita will be a combination of Des Jardins' signature French inspired California cuisine, with a regional mountain resort influence, sourcing organic, sustainable and locally grown meat and produce when possible. From the moment you enter the restaurant, the design radiates warmth, texture and natural materials with an open kitchen, visible from all vantage points in the restaurant.

Imagine escaping to a place where stress is replaced with serenity and cares are smoothed away by calm ? a forest sanctuary where nature abounds bringing water and the woods into balance and harmony with modern results-oriented treatments. This is The Ritz-Carlton Highlands Spa, Lake Tahoe - an oasis of pampering where the senses are awakened, the body is soothed and the spirit is renewed.

This mountain retreat features 16 luxurious treatment rooms, a Fitness Center with state-of-the-art cardiovascular and weight-training equipment, a fully integrated wellness program including spinning, yoga and Pilates, and a heated co-ed Spa lap pool overlooking the slopes. After an extraordinary day of skiing or other outdoor activity, unwind and warm yourself by the cozy fireplace in your private restoration lounge or step into the dry-heat-lodge to detoxify, or the mentally uplifting pinyon pine steam room to energize. Whatever your pleasure, your high-altitude journey of restoration and relaxation awaits.
