Conference Center

The Historic Jesuit Retreat Center

Choose The Jesuit Retreat Center of Los Altos for your next business meeting, conference, board meeting or staff retreat.

We are located in Los Altos on 38 wooded acres of peaceful scenery and abundant wildlife, easy-access hiking trails, a creek and labyrinth, spectacular views of San Francisco Bay and Silicon Valley, and the hospitality of our excellent professional staff.

We are just 40 minutes from San Francisco International Airport (SFO) and 20 minutes from San Jose International Airport (SJC) so we can easily accommodate national and international guests.

The Jesuit Retreat Center’s hospitality extends to local, regional, national and international groups whose purposes are compatible with our mission.  The Retreat Center, affectionately known as El Retiro San Inigo, was founded in 1925 as an active religious community of the Society of Jesus – the Jesuits – and remains so today.

Our knowledgeable and friendly staff are available 24/7 to support your meeting needs. Contact us by email at  or call (650) 917-4042 for  information or for a tour of our facilities.
