The Five Star, Five Diamond Rancho Valencia Resort and Spa has selected GCommerce to provide Digital Marketing services for the property.

Rancho Valencia is the only Relais & Châteaux property in Southern California and, since it’s opening, has earned a reputation as one of the most-sought after five star resorts in the west. The property has engaged GCommerce to lead their digital marketing strategy with a custom approach that celebrates the unique advantages the property offers its loyal guests.

“Rancho Valencia is a special place that our guests and our staff revere. We needed to engage an agency that would not use a one-size-fits-all approach. Instead, we wanted a unique digital strategy designed exclusively for us. After an extensive search of hospitality marketing firms, we found that GCommerce presented a great vision for our future.” – said Coni Thornburg, General Manager of Rancho Valencia Resort & Spa.

Rancho Valencia adds to GCommerce’s growing roster of five-diamond properties and unique luxury properties. GCommerce has been named the digital marketing agency for Acqualina Resort and Spa in Miami, Sunset Marquis in West Hollywood, The Jefferson in Washington DC, Home Ranch in Colorado and the Meadowood in Napa Valley, amongst many others.

“GCommerce is extremely pleased to be working with Rancho Valencia. They represent the pinnacle of California luxury, and we can’t wait to help tell their story” – said Chris Jackson, President of GCommerce. “GCommerce has worked with luxury properties for over 16 years, and we have developed some unique, strategy focused techniques that have been proved to drive premium online revenue for our distinguished clients.”
