San Diego’s Exclusive Escape

Exclusive Hotel Del Coronado

The Hotel Del Coronado has been one of the country’s most prominent beachfront exclusive resorts since it opened in 1888. At first sight the lobby is antique and offers a certain breath of history, that makes you feel like many more before you have been in your very shoes, enjoying the luxury and beauty the beachside Hotel Del Coronado has to offer.

One of the most exclusive escapes is at The Hotel Del, and is only complete with an ocean front third story luxury suite complimented with a balcony for viewing. The landscape is truly mesmerizing; a never ending white sand beach with a blue-green ocean kissing the shore, echoed by the sound of the crashing waves. Even better is arrival in the evening when the air is cool and the stars are bright; the energy from restaurant table conversations below fills the air by guests who enjoy the luxury lifestyle. A piece of paradise exists in the heart of San Diego, and can be found in the comforts of the lovely Hotel Del Coronado. It is certainly one of San Diego’s leading hotels all year long.

Not to be missed is an early evening watching the sunset spent at the wine, cheese, and chocolate bar along the boardwalk, ENO. ENO, a wine, cheese and chocolate sensation, opened at Hotel Del Coronado in February 2008. Devoted to providing the three most delectable indulgences in the exclusive culinary world — fine wine, rare cheeses and gourmet chocolate — ENO offers guests a one-of-a-kind tasting experience. A step inside takes you to a faraway winery, where good conversation and tastings await you. A true quaint and social environment, that is sure to tantalize the senses. A luxury magazine favorite beachside spot.
The grounds of the hotel are perfectly manicured and clean, with an abundance of restaurants and bars to relax, or freely meet other visitors and friends to share in the experience. The common denominator of all the services offered is clearly impeccable customer service. The respect and friendliness is unmatched.

Spend your mornings running the breezy beach or enjoying the top of the line equipment in the fitness club, either way, your day will be off to a wonderful start. Follow your morning brunch of sweet fruits, fresh croissants, pasta dishes, seafood, desserts, and so much more at the renowned Crown Room Breakfast Buffet Hall, with a day of pampering at the SPA at the Del. Spa at The Del features 21 treatment rooms, Jacuzzis, steam rooms, a spectacular beachfront relaxation terrace with vanishing edge pool, and unique ocean-inspired treatments. A fabulous couple massage can be a shared indulgence within the privacy of the exclusive and spacious couples suite, with dual rain showers; a positively alluring experience.

Enjoy a sunny day of lounging poolside with wait staff of the Splash Bar and Deli, ready at a moment’s notice to take your order, and surroundings of soaring birds, children’s laughter, and splashing sparkling water. To top the afternoon off, perfectly blended tropical drinks while soaking in the warmth at the Sun Deck Bar and Grill, will leave your skin admirably sun-kissed.

To continue in the delights, dinner at the 1500 Ocean is a fine dining affair that will ignite the love in the air. 1500 OCEAN offers a variety of elegant indoor and outdoor settings – the 6,000-square-foot restaurant functions happily as one space, but also accommodates small and large groups. A row of three interior coastal cabanas – oversized booths with sheer draperies – provide intimate seating for couples and/or groups of four. Lined with honey-colored, wood panels, each has a framed mirror, a wood ceiling and candle-niche, creating a “room within a room” sensibility. Near the bar, a larger, semi-private cabana has views into the wine room. The cabana has burnished plaster walls and a large wood table for groups of six to eight.

The interior bar is an energetic setting with a striped cork floor, seating for 16, and a feature wall of back-lit “sunset” glass. The rosy glass wall creates a warm, inviting glow after sunset, when the ocean view fades. Nearby, peacock blue, leather wingback chairs add a visual pop, offering a special setting for couples while helping to form an elegant promenade from the main entry. The entry itself has been moved from within the hotel to the beach-front terrace, giving 1500 OCEAN its own exciting story and arrival sequence.

An outdoor Sunset Bar, complete with fire pits, cocktails and appetizers, offers the perfect West Coast venue to watch the sunset over the Pacific.Because of The Del’s rich heritage, dining at the exclusive resort has always been a unique and enchanting experience. The ambience is demure and charming, with candlelit dinners perfectly set to ensure intimate fine dining. 1500 Ocean is a sure win!

The Hotel Del Coronado offers a truly exclusive escape; a passionate and sensual experience to delight in moment to moment, in all of the amenities available to you. The experience from start to finish is the ultimate luxury life style life must do!
