When you’re looking to reconnect and relax, adult-only hotels can be a lifesaver. The tranquility of a peaceful pool or a quiet restaurant can enhance a couple's romantic getaway. For those seeking a rejuvenating and intimate escape, these adult-only options in California offer the perfect solution.

Set in the redwood forest near the Russian River in Guerneville, the 14-room boutique Boon Hotel is a Zen-like sanctuary that invites adults to relax poolside or at its spa. Rooms have classic turntables and vinyl, and guests have access to bikes and enjoy in-room breakfast daily. Best of all, this gem of a property is ideally located in the heart of Sonoma wine country. Cheers to that!
