Where is Nine Perfect Strangers set?

Unlike the book that it's based on, which was set in Moriarty's native Australia, the Nine Perfect Strangers TV show is set at in California.

At the start of the show, we see a signpost for Cabrillo, California, and the fictional Tranquillum House is located there.

Is Tranquillum House real?

Tranquillum House is an entirely fictional resort, but Soma, a spa in Ewingsdale, was used to film many of the scenes in the centre, as reported by CN Traveller.

The real-life spa is set in 22 acres, and features stunning views as seen in the show.

Its website states: "With the intention of creating a space to recharge your batteries, Soma has been mindfully designed with a modern yet warm aesthetic, allowing clarity externally for whatever space you need within."

Director Jonathan Levine told Forbes magazine: "The resort itself is such a big character.

"It was perfect with its amazing woods, jungles and beaches, and captured the feeling we were looking for."
