Fairmont Grand Del Mar

5200 Grand Del Mar Ct., San Diego, California, 92130, USA

Mind-blowing indulgence in serene surroundings, from drop-dead gorgeous guest accommodations to myriad outdoor adventures, sets the opulent Mediterranean-style Fairmont Grand Del Mar apart from any other luxury hotel in San Diego. Inspired by the palaces of Spain and the villas of France, the resort is set in a secluded canyon surrounded by the 4,100-acre Los Penasquitos Canyon Preserve. Every window, deck, patio, balcony, and lawn affords a view of the surrounding mountains. Guests can hike tree-lined trails and dip their toes in streams, fish-filled ponds, or waterfalls or take advantage of the resort's four pools (playing classical music underwater), and the Tom Fazio–designed golf course. Marble, crystal, gold, brocaded corner love seats, fine European linens, crystal lamps, and marble bathrooms with separate soaking tubs and showers—and more—embellish the guest rooms. If you need a lot of space, request one of the 5,000 square-foot royal villas that feature three bedrooms, 4½ baths, state-of-the-art kitchens, and sweeping entertainment areas. Among the resort's many amenities are complimentary limousine service within 14 miles and child care during spa treatments.
