Satisfy your craving for a luxury getaway with this week's escape to Rancho Bernardo Inn Golf Resort and Spa in San Diego, California.

Pamper your palate with a one-night stay at the AAA four diamond award-winning property — the perfect source of sustenance.

Order your escape with a bottle of wine and a three-course dinner for two at El Bizcocho ($299), or opt for a simple one-night stay ($209). Spread out in a spacious guest room for two, garnished with deep soaking tubs, Aveda bath products, flat-screen TVs and a private patio or balcony. Complimentary valet parking and wi-fi will also be served during your sojourn.

When you arrive, take a relaxing swim in the saline pool at The Spa at Rancho Bernardo Inn — named the Best Outdoor Spa by San Diego Magazineusing your two pool passes. Let a masseuse cater to every kink with a deep-tissue massage for an additional fee.

In the evening, table your hunger with a three-course dinner for two at El Bizcocho, the crème de la crème when it comes to culinary experiences. The restaurant has topped the Zagat list for seven consecutive years and received the Wine Spectator Award of Excellence for 18 years. Savour contemporary garden-fresh cuisine — courtesy of Executive Chef Nicolas Bour — with an included bottle of wine. Afterward, sip a cocktail around the fire and relish the serene setting.

Your taste buds are in for another treat in the morning with your complimentary American breakfast — including two eggs, home-fried potatoes, toast and your choice of smoked bacon, pork sausage or Black Forest ham — at Veranda Fireside Lounge and Restaurant.

Then, treat yourself to the inn's legendary 18-hole golf course or get a real feel for the flavour of the city with some sightseeing. Typical fare includes the San Diego Zoo, SeaWorld and Legoland, but a stroll through Balboa Park is just as delicious. And with 70 miles of coastline and near-perfect weather year-round, you'll want to spread out on the beach for a bit.

It is okay if your eyes are bigger than your wallet—dig in with this week's escape and you won't have to stomach a big bill.
