Mind-blowing indulgence in serene surroundings, from drop-dead gorgeous guest accommodations to myriad outdoor adventures, sets the opulent Mediterranean-style Grand Del Mar apart from any other luxury hotel in San Diego. The resort is set in a secluded canyon surrounded by 4,100-acre Los Penasquitos Canyon Preserve, and 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 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. Among the many amenities are complimentary limousine service within 14 miles and child care during spa treatments.
