Ojai Retreat & Inn Coronavirus Updates

To our Valued Guests and Friends of The Ojai Retreat and Ojai Retreat Cultural Center,

We hope you remain safe and healthy as the COVID-19 virus continues to have a large impact on all of us and our communities. Here at The Ojai Retreat & Inn we have been closely monitoring the situation.

In response to recommendations from the CDC and the Governor of California to close non-essential businesses, we have made the difficult decision to close The Ojai Retreat & Inn as of March 20, 2020, until the situation improves.

We have not made this decision lightly. The safety and well-being of our guests, staff and the community we are lucky enough to serve are of paramount importance to us.

Additionally, we are offering added value Gift Cards through April 30th. For each $100 purchase we are adding $25. For example, a $300 purchase = a $375 Gift Card. To purchase in any dollar amount, please use our online form and mention this “Plus $25” offer in the “message” section.


We also welcome much needed donations, which are tax deductible through Ojai Retreat Cultural Center, a California Non-Profit Benefit Corporation, 501 (c)(3).

Like so many businesses, we suffered a tremendous loss of revenue due to cancellations.

  • If you can help, please write a check to “The Ojai Retreat Cultural Center” and send it to: 160 Besant Road, Ojai, CA 93023
  • Or wire your donation to our account #0148917081 at Mechanics Bank (previously Rabobank) in Ojai.
  • Or use the Paypal Button below.
  • You will receive an acknowledgment from us for your tax-deductible donation. As you might know, government loans do not cover loses before our closure date of March 20, 2020, and that is when we had our tremendous losses.

We will be enhancing our already thorough cleaning and sanitizing procedures, and we will take whatever steps necessary to be sure we provide you with a safe and relaxing environment.

When we are past these very challenging times, we will be here for you, to welcome you back with warmth and hospitality and to provide a refuge for relaxation and rejuvenation.

– From all of us at The Ojai Retreat & Inn
