An Important Update from The Ranch, May 5, 2020

 

Dear friends and family of Rancho La Puerta,

While we continue our voluntary closure of Rancho La Puerta, and despite the buzz of activity as we prepare for an eventual reopening, I sit here inspired and humbled by the quiet natural beauty this place nurtures and so eagerly shares with our guests. The barrage of news and media reports often leave me feeling unsettled, but after I walk the breathtaking grounds and appreciate the 4000 acres surrounding me, my mind is calm, my spirit is centered, and my body reinvigorated. I return in awe of the spectacular work of Mother Nature. No matter the status of COVID 19 raging through the world, she continues to prevail, provide, protect and flourish here at The Ranch. 

I am eager for your return so you too can experience the majesty of this in full bloom. Everywhere I turn, the gardens are teaming with life, the mountain side is painted with vivid color of spring wildflowers, even the stream by Arboles -normally dry from recent drought – is flowing tranquilly. The trellises near the Sol pool are hanging heavily with purple bunches of Wisteria. The grape vines are just starting to show their green leaves and the birds have filled the air with their symphony of songs.

We hope during these times, you have had the chance to tap into the tenets of Rancho La Puerta—farm-fresh food, nature, conversation, mindfulness and movement. Let us remember to take deep breaths and embrace the simple grace of slowing down. As an important member of our family, we want to remind you that self-care is as vital as ever.

On our end we continue to take care of our immediate family of staff and community. There is a bounty of fresh vegetables made available on a weekly basis for our Tecate staff to enjoy.  Take a look at the video to see the harvest in action. Herve Blondel, our General Manager, his dog Euro and core staff of security and grounds keepers are patrolling the property to ensure it is protected and well-preserved.  Our motto of Siempre Mejor is being put to good use as our team of managers use this time to undergo added leadership training. Our housing project for the families who lost their homes in the Tecate fire is also underway.  We’ve built and delivered 25 homes so far! We have been very happy to see many of you tuning in and responding to our #SavorThe Ranch communications and live Zoom events.  We strive to bring The Ranch to you in meaningful and thoughtful ways.  When, if not now is the purpose of wellness so crucial to our existence.

And finally, we are looking forward to The Ranchs reopen. Like you, we are closely monitoring the medical and governmental standards of social distancing and sanitization measures. We will most certainly have new practices in place while ensuring that your next experience with us is better than ever. I look forward to sharing those details with you in my next update.

Youre truly part of our family. As the world re-awakens know there is always a place here for you, in our home and in our hearts.

Yours in health,

Roberto Arjona
Chief Executive Officer
Rancho La Puerta Group
