Explore the best of the Bay area

Claremont Club & Spa is nestled in the Oakland Hills, straddling both the cities of Berkeley and Oakland. Berkeley is a city with a small population and a big reputation, famous around the globe as a center for academic achievement, scientific exploration, free speech and the arts. Oakland has a personality of its own – the charter city has it all: massive parks, ancient redwoods, salty sea air from the bay, urban grandeur, suburban quaintness, and of course, a thriving food scene.

Located just 12 miles from downtown San Francisco and 45 miles to Sonoma wine country, the best of the Bay Area is right at your fingertips.
