Ojai Valley Inn debuts multi-million dollar renovation of luxury villa

Ojai Valley Inn, the historic resort located on 220 acres in the idyllic Ojai Valleydebuts a new design of its iconic villa, Casa Elar, alongside a brand-new luxury experience featuring private flights, a champagne and caviar experience, golf and spa treatments, and more in collaboration with Southern California-based private charter company, Sun Air Jets.

Originally built in 2006 by the hotel’s owners as a private residence, Casa Elar has evolved into a popular destination for family reunions, intimate weddings, and celebrity escapes. The 10,147-square-foot villa’s new design was dreamt up collaboratively between hotel ownership and Interior Designer Natalie Konstant, reflecting a bright, airy, and modern version of the Tuscan-style villa with classic California style touches. The 44,000-square-foot compound is sprinkled with fruit groves and wild herbs, including olive and lemon trees, alongside aromatic rosemary and lavender.

Throughout the space, custom local art graces the walls alongside archival photos of Ojai Valley Inn, hand-carved wood furniture, and other tasteful finishes from Ojai-based furniture stores and showrooms including Dekor & Co., Down Home Furnishings, and Cercana. For outdoor relaxation, the villa boasts an outdoor pool and spa area featuring sweeping views of Ojai Valley, a barbecue terrace with a stone Mugnaini pizza oven and gas grill, and four hand-carved limestone fountains.
