La Costa Resort and Spa
From the moment you enter through the gates of the Omni La Costa Resort and Spa in Carlsbad - formerly a KSL Luxury Resort, you are embraced by the picturesque beauty and leisurely charm of the coastal California lifestyle. Here within this quaint village setting, you'll discover an idyllic Southern California getaway. Nestled among 400 lush garden acres near the beach in Carlsbad, CA – but miles away from the pressures of the world – this delightful coastal California hotel is a haven of rejuvenation, comfort and escape where you can do it all or, if preferred, nothing at all.

While away the afternoon beneath the glow of warm Southern California sunshine in the spa courtyard. Steal a moment of quiet solitude curled up on a hammock in a garden alcove. Share a dance with that special someone underneath a moonlit spotlight. Walk in the footsteps of legends as you welcome the challenge of two championship golf courses. Create a lasting memory with your children as you navigate the waters of Splash Landing. Even excite and tantalize your palate with an abundance of culinary delights. Whatever it is that you desire, it can all be found in one place – Omni La Costa Resort & Spa.

A lush atmosphere echoes inside each newly renovated room at Omni La Costa Resort and Spa in Carlsbad. Rich fabrics pop over a palette of blues, greens and terra cotta. Natural light pours through the windows that perfectly frame the stunning views beyond. And steps from your door, world-class golf, tennis, dining, and spa anxiously wait to welcome your arrival. It's simply the perfect respite while on a perfect Southern California getaway. Surround yourself in a private garden paradise with the signature La Costa Room. Escape with the family to the elegant and completely redesigned two-bedroom Family Suite. Step from the shopping, dining and picturesque beauty of La Costa's central Plaza into the spacious comfort of a two-room Plaza Suite, or enjoy the Spanish Colonial style and beautifully crafted details of our Junior Villa. Packed with comfortable charm, these and other San Diego accommodations each provide a distinctly unique experience.

Since 1965, the Spa at La Costa has set the gold standard for wellness retreats and was recently named the #1 Wellness Spa in the nation by Spa Magazine and Travel + Leisure's #4 Spa in North America. While honored, these accolades have only strengthened the commitment to improving your life through the healing powers of nature. For it's nature that inspires everything at the Spa at La Costa – the fresh citrus and herbs that infuse our Spa elixirs; the local ingredients accompanying treatments; the completely redesigned facilities. While here, cater to your palate with a variety of options at the Spa Cafe, enjoy relaxing poolside under the sun with a signature Bellini, or awaken your senses underneath one of the Waterfall Showers. Walk barefoot between the thriving gardens and lush landscapes on Southern California's only Reflexology Pathway. And if the San Diego spa resort is the ideal solution to treating your outer being, the Chopra Center allows you to find your inner self, creating an all-encompassing program for overall wellbeing.

The golf courses at Omni La Costa, Southern California's only Gold Medal Golf Resort, are amongst the most storied in California, boasting a rich tournament history and a cadre of prominent guests, ranging from the best professional golfers in the world, to prominent politicians, Hollywood celebrities and legendary sports heroes. La Costa's tee sheets read like a who's who: Jack Nicklaus, Gary Player, Phil Mickelson, Tiger Woods and more. Almost 50 years after their inception, the two courses now offer the modern player new challenges while reintroducing this championship-caliber golf destination to world-class standards.

First, the Champions Course, Dick Wilson's only Californian design and the home of the 2012 LPGA Kia Classic, has been completely restored and dressed with all-new bent grass greens, Bermuda fairways and strategically placed bunkers. In turn, the South Course has received four redesigned holes with a tally of other landscape improvements sure to mature over time. Fairway contours have been altered; a modernized drainage system has been added for sustainability, improved water flow and irrigation; 30-acres of maintained turf have been reduced for water conservation; native grasses and lakes have been added to challenge all levels. These improvements take golf at Omni La Costa to an unprecedented level of excellence while doing honor to it's past as Southern California's premier golf resort.

Fresh ingredients from the farm, the sea and the on-site organic gardens find their way onto each plate served at Omni La Costa Resort and Spa. It's a promise sure to please every palette. Enjoy Executive Chef Marc Therrien's award-winning menu filled with local cuisine and vintages while overlooking the golf course at Legends Bistro. Meet Chef Greg Frey Jr. at BlueFire Grill and taste what happens when a passion for cooking and interactivity with guests meets farm-to-table freshness and perfectly crafted seasonal menus. Indulge yourself with Pastry Chef Jaimie Hileman's desserts at The Marketplace. And relax with your friends while watching the game with beer and appetizers or a flavorful cigar at the all-new Diversions Lounge. These experiences, including the delicious Spa Cafe and convenient Poolside Cafes, elevates Californian cuisine course by course.
